Enjoy Weddings

Kristen and Brent were married May 1st at the beautiful Saint Elias Maronite Church in Birmingham, Alabama.

Kristen's sweet sister and fun bridesmaids were on hand to help with the preparation.

Dad added the lucky sixpence.

And mom put on the garter.

Kristen is beautiful inside and out!

This little flower girl was a show stopper!!

Kristen's nephew was too cute in his little tux!

I guess because of my own sons I love to capture these moments between the groom and his mother.

There are some good formal captures of the groom and groomsmen, but this one is so much more fun! I love it when the guys act up at the wedding! It eases the tension and allows everyone to have fun.

Kristen and Brent didn't see each other before the ceremony ... this was as close as they got. Such a special moment.

And now it's time. Kristen walks to the ceremony alone. One of my favorite captures of the day. All the excitement mounting inside the church and in Kristen's heart - I can just feel it in this image.

There was a moment when we thought the sweet flower girl was going to turn around and head back... but her dad coaxed her down the aisle.

Then Kristen and Brent have their first look.

And the beautiful celebration begins.

A few family shots ...

... and full wedding party shots after the ceremony...

...then off to the reception at LincPoint!

The special dances came first...

... followed by the cutting of the cakes.

The groom's cake was an entire table of cheesecakes! How awesome is that!

A fun time was had by all!

The surprise of the evening was a lovely serenade of the bride by her groom and the groomsmen!

Kristen and Brent, the finishing touches will go on the images tomorrow morning and then I'll start uploading them. I hope you enjoy your preview while you await the final release of the gallery!

Thank you to Katherine and Steve for allowing me to be a part of this special day and making me feel a part of your sweet family!

Many thanks to Lori Mercer for being there with her talent and sweet spirit!
