One of the very best things about writing this blog is getting to see cool inspiring weddings that are not over the top, are really simple, and emotionally honest. This wedding was sent to be by a reader, Allison, as a great example of a practical wedding. It was shot by the amazing A Bryan Photo, based out of Birmingham, Alabama.
The thing I love the most about this wedding is the couples easy way with each other. They are so in love, but not any a sappy posed way. They both seem totally in their comfort zone at the wedding, which is so important. Other things I love: the brides dress (which looks like a bridesmaid dress in white to me!), and her awesome wild flower bouquet.
You so rarely see touching shots of male friendship from weddings (or really, shots of men at weddings) and this picture just captured my heart.
I love it all, but it was this picture which sold me. The bride walked herself down the aisle!
A simple outdoor ceremony.
Look. I’m going to admit this. I’m a sucker for a cute baby. Period. And you know I’m a “as many kids as possible at the wedding” kind of girl.
David describes my flower style as “bunches of wild flowers” so clearly, I love this bouquet.
For all of you feeling tense about the current obsession with wedding details, and wondering if your wedding will live up in every little way, please note! They are toasting with plastic cups! And the wedding is super excellent.
Homemade cake! Yumm! Best part about this cake? It’s not towering and covered with perfect sugar impressions of the lace of the brides dress, and a diamond monogrammed topper, but unlike those cakes, it looks good enough to eat. And it makes me so happy that someone made the cake just for them!
A wedding tradition that has gone out of style, and I really miss. The bride and the groom changing into traveling clothes, and heading off to their honeymoon and married life!
Look at all of the photos over here. There were so many great ones I couldn’t fit in the post, that will make you grin. Thanks for the tip Allison!
