Get ready for picture-overload because Lexie and Blake’s Fairhope Alabama wedding was full of special moments that make you want to laugh and cry all at the same time. This family of three has set the bar high and I’m so happy to finally share all of these images with you.
The rehearsal took place at Lexie’s mom’s home in Fairhope, Alabama. It was the perfect location for pictures and a gorgeous venue for an intimate family gathering. I’m a huge fan of using family homes as venues because of the sentimentality of the occasion. It makes the day so special and something the family can always look back on and remember. I love this iron gate that emphasized the beauty of this gorgeous wedding gown. Lexie’s mom’s house was also where the bridal party got ready on the wedding day so it was the perfect time and location to emphasize this perfect dress.
Lexie was very intentional about including her family in the ceremony. Both of her sisters were bridesmaids and she had multiple nieces and nephews in the bridal party as well. She went out of her way to make her niece feel special, even giving her a ring to wear to commemorate the special day.
It goes without saying, but Lexie and Blake’s dog Lee Loo was literally the perfect addition to the bridal party. Anybody that attended was able to see how special she is to Lexie and Blake. She goes down as the most cooperative dog I have ever photographed. She wanted to be in every single photo and was completely relaxed during all of the picture-taking. You won’t see too many photos without her in it, and I think the bride and groom were totally happy with that! I couldn’t believe how she just laid there-ready for me to take her picture. I think it’s safe to say that she definitely thought this was her party! I love that she was in all of the bridal party pictures. She also made sure to wait by the food table until someone did their due diligence and fed her. 😂
Lexie and her dad shared the sweetest first look and it was such a heart-warming moment. Lexie looked so gorgeous. She literally looked perfect, y’all. Her dad was so happy to see Lexie and I just know that every daughter in the world wants to feel that special and beautiful on their wedding day.
Lexie and Blakes Fairhope Alabama Wedding
The ceremony took place at Lexie’s dad’s house in Point Clear / Fairhope, Alabama, and it was such an element of surprise when they rode up in a boat before walking down the aisle! I love the creativity shown in this ceremony because it added to the overall excitement of the entire day.
The bridesmaids and groomsmen were all able to choose their own dresses and suits which I also thought was so unique and creative. It just shows how laid back Lexie and Blake, were which made for such a calm, relaxing wedding day.
Wild Soul Films captured the entire day on video which just adds so much dimensional detail to remember. Cinematic Film is so special because it documents the entire wedding in live-action and helps you remember each and every moment, perfectly.
Lexie and Blake’s getaway vehicle was a vintage truck but it made it all the more special that Lee Loo was right in the middle of them. The shot of Lee Loo giving Lexie a huge kiss on the face is definitely one for the wall. It just doesn’t get any cuter than this.
Being a wedding photographer is not just a job. It creates relationships and connections all over the globe, and of course right here in my backyard of Fairhope, Alabama. It was so special to be able to take Lexie and Blake’s engagement photos in Atlanta, and now their wedding here in Alabama to help them memorize the most perfect and beautiful day. A day they will hold in their hearts forever.
I like to think of myself as more than just the wedding photographer-but a friend with a front-row seat to all the moments. Messy, happy, sad, intimate, exciting, tear-jerking, priceless moments that only family and friends that were there got to experience, but everyone in the world gets to see.
