I am SO happy to have been allowed to work with Kasey Kleigh as her second photographer last weekend in Huntsville, Alabama. It was a magnificent day with perfect weather and the perfect couple! From the moment I entered the Valley Hill golf club, the entire experience felt completely relaxed. And of course, this can certainly be attributed to the couple themselves. Tigger and Rachel were ridiculously fun to work with! If you look at the images below, you can almost FEEL how purely joyful they were to just be together and be married. The food was perfect, the decorations were beautiful, and the bride was radiant. From the unity cross in the ceremony to Rachel’s magnificent smile during her bridal portraits, the entire experience could be described as simply majestic.

Though I didn’t plan it this way, this image, with the cross centered in the dress, really does represent how much Christ is at the center of Rachel’s life.

He may look cute but don’t be fooled! This little guy was a deadeye with this little nerf gun.
Though he showed up fifteen minutes before the wedding, we had him ready to go in three. Reason 465 why being a dude is nice.
See! He’s like a jaguar hiding in the shadows.
So here is my first shoutout to Kleigh Photography for letting me photograph this big day with her! An incredible joy to be around, I would recommend her work to ANYONE.
My favorite part, when the father gives away the bride. Of all the things he’s done in his life, I know this is probably going to live in his top 20 moments of pride. After all these years of protecting his little girl, he hands off this task to a new man and then steps away to take his seat as a spectator in her life. He trusts in the training he’s provided her.
Bridesmaid dresses were purchased at Dillards!
SnapChat queen everyone! At times I wondered why I was even at the wedding with her there to record everything!
Rachel created the most GORGEOUS bridals!
This beautiful cake was provided by Cakes Etc. and it was AWESOME!
And I don’t know how they did it, but Glenns of Huntsville perfectly melded their decorations to fit the theme!
And who could forget Krispy Kreme stepping it to give a positive male-inspired influence?
So I’m not entirely sure if he steps outside his friend circle to do this, but Steve Kerce was an AWESOME DJ and just a great guy to work with.
Whoever the head chef at Valley Hill is needs a major commendation! A watermelon swan?! Perfect catering.
Her dad was a HOOT!
You can always tell a groom’s relationship by the way he interacts with his mother during the first dance. From this image alone, it is so obvious that he loves this lady. =]
Though I still don’t really know this couple, I wish I did. They are definitely going to have a very abundant life together.
