Rachel & Dale {Montgomery, AL Wedding Photography}

Rachel and Dale were married two weeks ago at Dalraida Baptist Church. It was a beautiful celebration for a wonderful couple.

Here are a few of my favorite images from the day:

I just fell in love with Rachel's sweet sister! What a doll!

The fun-filled reception was held at 129 Coosa - a great location for receptions, meetings and parties.

Ashlee Staggers was the floral designer and wedding director extraordinaire. She is the only wedding director I remember who actually thought to save me a parking place so I could get out of my car at the same time as the bride and groom were getting out of theirs! Thank you, Ashlee!!

Dana's Floral Designs, LLC., 164 East Main Street, Prattville, AL. 36067, 334-361-7778 and Ashlee Staggers, Wedding Coordinator/Director, 334-399-9287.

The gorgeous cakes and catering were provided by Gwen Massey of A Social Event, Inc. I love Gwen so much I chose her to cater both of my son's rehearsal dinners, so I was thrilled to see her again at Rachel and Dale's wedding. Please go visit her and enjoy some of her amazing food at Bandanas Restaurant, 301 E. Jefferson Avenue in Downtown Montgomery. She makes!!

Many thanks to Diana Bunch for second-shooting and Jeri Gulsby for assisting.

Congratulations and Best Wishes to this sweet couple. Your gallery is uploading and should be online for you to view soon. Please enjoy this sneak peek!

Rachel's Wedding Day {Bridal Portraits Montgomery, AL}

Miss Rachel Gordon became Mrs. Dale Thomas yesterday in a beautiful celebration at Dalraida Baptist Church. It was such an honor to have been chosen to document this special day. This was her official bridal portrait on display at the reception which was held at 129 Coosa:

Rachel and I met at Jasmine Hill Gardens and Outdoor Museum in May, but these had to stay under wraps until her wedding day. Now I can show you some of my favorite bridal portrait images.

Their wedding blog post will follow in a couple of weeks.

Enjoy Vintage Jewelry

I can't begin to describe how excited I was when I was recently received this little box with the familiar Ex Voto sticker on the front:

Because I knew something special was inside!

Montgomery's very own Elizabeth Adams is the creative force behind the Ex Voto brand. According to her website:

Ex Voto jewelry takes pieces discarded, left behind, and forgotten and revamps them, elevating them into one-of-a-kind jewelry statements.

A note from her blog:
Ex Voto is: -a tangible, hand-made, expression of gratitude to God. -one-of-a-kind jewelry composed of antique and vintage elements on gold-plated and silver-plated chains and toggles all made in the US and lead-free. -an eclectic mix of vintage and contemporary jewelry by Elizabeth Adams. -a celebration of history, art, and the Redeemer who has the power to make beauty from ashes.

A portion of proceeds from Ex Voto jewelry goes to The Cure Starts Now Foundation for Pediatric Brain Cancer Research.

Many thanks go to the givers of this special Ex Voto gift. They will always be thought of as I wear and enjoy it!
