We met Maggie and Philip through their awesome wedding planner, Beverly Andrews of Engaging Celebrations. Their wedding weekend was going to be something pretty special and we were honored to be able to document every fun moment!
I had heard through snippets of conversations with Carol Riley of Lillie's Flowers that the flowers were going to be out of this world, with a heavy emphasis at the rehearsal dinner. I also had heard that Park Lane in Mountain Brook was going to be transformed with the help of drapery and lighting by Andy Tolar with Design Productions. All I can say is WOW!!!!!!! I am in LOVE with those chandeliers!
The wedding day begins with a calm bride, which is always nice! Jerrod Brown of Jerrod Brown Studios, has the wonderful abiltiy to make a bride calm anyway. It was H-O-T, but we made the best of it. What can you do?
The ceremony was held at Vestavia Hills UMC with the reception at the Country Club up the street. Great director at the church, by the way. It is not often that I walk into the reception venue and my mouth drops open at the site of the cakes. Shannon Pardo of Sweet Spot Confections is someone to keep your eye on! I loved the bride's cake for it's elegance and the groom's cake was just impressive with the details. They definitely were the talk of the reception. Compositionz from Music Garden had everyone up on the dance floor all night. I even got a little booty bump from the groom. Take that, John!
