AWM Fifteenth Anniversary Gala

On December 29, 2015, the fabulous Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook opened its doors to a gathering of some of the Alabama wedding industry’s finest to celebrate the launch of our Fifteenth Anniversary issue. With the help of some of industry friends and under the direction of our Style and Managing Editor, Christopher Confero, we ushered in a true return to glamour. With a palette of black, white and gold, the Grand Bohemian ballroom was transformed in great part by the lighting and drapery by Design Productions for a cocktail party that was nothing short of fabulous. The centerpiece of the room, an anniversary cake designed by The Cakerie, was a true work of art that absolutely took our breath away. The three signature cocktails of the evening celebrated the three original AWM advertisers that have been in our pages since Day One: Bromberg’s, Mr. Burch Formal Wear and Olexa’s. Delicious canapés by the Grand Bohemian’s catering chef and cake bites by all our bakers were a true taste of perfection. All in all, we have to say we’re still swooning from the entire night!

After fifteen years of producing Alabama Weddings Magazine, we are incredibly proud of all those that have helped make this publication great. We hope every page produced over this legacy of time continues to inspire brides in Alabama, across the Southeast and beyond. Thank you for being part of Alabama Weddings Magazine. We could not do what we do without our beloved readers, hard-working advertisers and supporters near and far.
