This wedding closed out my 2012 wedding season on the highest note possible. The Grand Hotel on the coast of Alabama absolutely lives up to its name. From the giant live oaks covered in spanish moss, to the little white ducks swimming in the pond & one of the most amazing sunsets I’ve ever seen..everything about this place is majestic. Even more impressive than the beautiful venue, was my experience with this incredible couple. I have no idea how the universe chooses the most perfect couples for me, but I am overwhelmingly grateful for the chance to work with Sarah & Dave. There were a few moments throughout their day that I found myself completely caught up in the sweetness, the connection, the tender way they treat each other. They are the epitome of true love, and it shows in every one of their images. Dave is a gentleman, while still maintaining a cool edge. He opens doors, holds out his hand to help Sarah navigate stairs in her wedding dress (and some treacherous rocks their crazy photographer asked them to climb on..see below) and he has impeccable taste all the way down to his purple striped socks. Sarah..well, I adore Sarah. Pretty sure we were friends in a past life. She’s the perfect southern gal and incredibly fun to be around. And, really..just LOOK at her. Totally gorgeous inside & out. Not even a week after their wedding, I added the image of her on the rocks to my website homepage, and it has already popped up on pinterest :)

Lucky me for getting to end the season with these two. Sarah & Dave, thanks for setting the bar high for 2013. I will fly to Alabama to photograph you guys any day of the week. xo
