Real Wedding: Emma + Anthony

Today’s real wedding submission comes to us via the ladies of Invision Events. Emma and Anthony were wed at Holy Trinity Episcopal in Auburn on March 1, 2014. We absolutely adore the light airiness of this gorgeous wedding day. The pastel color palette and simple yet striking details just make us smile. Emma’s tea length dress with pink petticoats is already so perfect, but the addition of tiffany blue shoes and Anthony’s matching bow tie just complete the look. Then just to add that extra “swoon factor,” check out the fantastic cake topper hand drawn to replicate each detail of the couple’s  attire. Courtney Wolf, one of the planners behind Invision Events, had this to add about the big day:

“Emma and Anthony’s spring wedding is chock full of so much prettiness and Emma did so much herself, as this was a budget soiree,” said Wolf. “We are completely, I mean completely, in love with them as a couple and their wedding. They have an amazing story, too! Emma, a mid-wife for women from countries in crisis, and Anthony met in Africa. They now live in Washington DC. And Emma’s dress is a vintage 50s one-of-a-kind. Emma really wanted a very simple and vintage-inspired day. Their wedding was less than 100 guests and she wanted to use the sweet and quaint setting the Holy Trinity has to create a vintage garden party feel. Being a couple that travels a lot, coming back to Auburn and to Holy Trinity where Emma had grown up was an easy choice for them. Everything about their day was done to give their day a personal feel.”

Real Wedding: Angie + Michael

Today’s Open Submission comes to us from J. Woodbery Photography. Michael and Angie Bridell celebrated their nuptials in true Mardi Gras style at Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham on May 17, 2014. From the colors of the wedding party attire, the masks worn by all and a second line ceremony recessional, this wedding was all about letting the good times roll. Carnivale season is a favorite time of year for the couple, so they wanted to share that with their guests. We share in Michael and Angie’s appreciation for the Southern tradition of Mardi Gras and love seeing it incorporated into their wedding day. Congratulations to Angie and Michael as they celebrate their first anniversary in just a few months and, “Laissez bon temps rouler!”
