Jessica and Christian were married in Spanish Fort, Alabama at Izenstone, a great venue that’s a little newer to the area and right across the bay for you local Mobilians. I loved the rustic esthetic of this wedding including this wooded arbor that can be decorated individually for each bride. The flowers were absolutely stunning and matched Jessica’s burgundy, dusty rose, and pale pink colors.
Fall is a busy time of year for weddings, and now you can see why. 😍 Beautiful, cooler weather with a lot less humidity, the perfect autumn colors, and S’mores favors. I love how creative Jessica and Christian were with the connection between S’mores and their new last name. (Moore) How cute is that? Plus everyone loves a good chocolate and marshmallow combo, am I right?
Jessica’s invitations had a pop of color in her invitations that matched her bridesmaid dresses and gorgeous bouquet. Her invitations are fun and unique with their unexpected striped liner. Jessica got ready at Izenstone as well where Brianna was able to take pictures of all of the details like Christian’s cuff links and Jessica’s oh so pretty robe!
Jessica’s “something blue” was her wedding shoes and they are some of my favorites! I love the style and that she incorporated that tradition into her wedding day. The bridesmaids did a toast in their hombre style dresses followed by groomsmen pictures as well.
The new bride and groom had a first look overlooking the water and the bridge and Brianna completely outdid herself by capturing this floral arrangement that surrounded the bride. Jessica and Christian are so photogenic and just look amazing together as a couple. It was a beautiful first look-reaction and it is sure to hang on their wall for years to come.
The candles at the fireplace gave the perfect fall vibe as they illuminated for all the guests to enjoy. Jessica and Christian allotted plenty of time in their schedule for photos which makes any wedding photographer happy as can be. It’s never fun to feel rushed and stressed on your wedding day so the more time you give yourself, the better.
The golden light after the ceremony was absolutely stunning for more bride and groom pictures before the reception. My favorite element of the day was the lit-up letters that displayed Jessica and Christian’s last name. This is a new trend that I’m totally on board with and think everyone should be doing these days. My other favorite was the naked cake. If I could go back and re-do my wedding, the first change I would make would be to add a naked cake at my reception. They are just so pretty and classy and I’m obsessed.
Every decorative decision Jessica and Christian made for their wedding turned out beautifully, but the best decision of all was to commit their love to each other in front of family and friends. A vow that is sure to be tested and tried, but never forgotten. A vow that not only was recited in a ceremony, but in one exact moment, created a new family; a bond that can never be broken. ❤️
