Real Wedding: Jeffrey + Amber Griffith

We don’t believe we have ever seen a wedding more surrounded by natural beauty than Amber & Jeffrey’s nuptials submitted by m. newsom photography. Jim Scott’s Garden at Lake Martin provided a stunning backdrop for this absolutely radiant couple. You couldn’t ask for a more scenic setting with lake views, lush botanicals, a waterfall and more. The bridesmaid dresses are all the same color, but have different styles for each girl’s own style. Of course, what AWM post would be complete without darn cute kids and pets? We also adore the succulent favors and the line from an e.e. cummings poem used as an art installation. This wedding is a fab reminder to let nature be your inspiration. Congrats Amber & Jeffrey!!!

Real Wedding: Stringer + Spiegel

Today’s Open Submission is a dream of yellow and blue in the Magic City. Kelli Stringer was wed to Robert Spiegel on April 6 this year at Dawson Memorial Baptist Church in Homewood. Gorgeous details are not lacking from the ornate invitations to the swoon-worthy charm bracelet and, of course, flower girls in tutus. The couple then takes the party to The Club overlooking downtown Birmingham for a night of fabulous fun. What party couldn’t be a blast once you’ve had a proper sugar rush from a bite of Diane Olexa’s five-tier cake?! You’ve also got to love that Kelli may be the first bride in wedding exit history to be able to give a perfect pose in the midst of flower petals being thrown at her from all sides! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Spiegel!
