It was a windy day at The Grand Hotel in Fairhope, Alabama for Jessica and Christian, but they were totally troopers and just went with it! When I say windy, I mean seriously- like 35 mph winds- and you literally cannot even tell in a lot of these pictures because they were so photogenic and calm throughout the whole process. Brianna braved the cold as well and got some stunning pictures of these two lovebirds.
Jessica and Christian are getting married in October and it is sure to be the perfect fall wedding. I’m so excited to show you all of these pictures because of course, they look so adorable together but also because Spring is in full bloom at the Grand and all the florals + the oaks were showing off on this particular day.
Brianna was able to capture of few shots of Jessica’s ring and it stands out so beautifully against these bright flowers. Jessica and Christian were also able to change outfits half-way through the session and both dresses were a beautiful choice. The wind also worked in her favor a few times, blowing her dress and hair in all the right directions.
As an engagement photographer, it’s so easy to form connections with clients and also develop favorite venues. The Grand Hotel is hands down one of my favorite places to shoot at, and a favorite of our brides as well. It’s full of dreamy oak trees that pays homage to the Mobile area. Oaks have become a trademark to the Gulf Coast along with those views of the water in every little town close to the Gulf. What even is a session without an oak tree shot? They never get old. 😍
What’s something that makes you special, unique or different? Sometimes it’s the very attribute or characteristic that might seem weird or strange at first that becomes the most beautiful part of you.
Even the windiest day can create the best memories and photographs, although it could have been an inconvenience at the time. Celebrate who God made you to be and also, the person He gave you to share your life with. No matter the weather, you always have each other to lean on
I wish Jessica and Christian the very best on their fall wedding day in October and am looking forward to more beautiful pictures of the two of them together.
