Romantic Wedding Nestled In Alabama

  • Nov 15, 2016


Styled by Augusta Cole, this Southern couple married in the woods on the property of Swann Lakes Stables.  When Brittany and Joel set out to design their wedding day, they knew it was essential to make their guests feel “at home.”  With a warm, sophisticated color palette that played on the rich tones of nature, floral designer, Savannah Kilpatrick chose blooms to accent Brittany’s classic style.  Brittany walked down the aisle in a dress designed by BHLDN and Joel awaited his bride under an alter designed with touches of rustic charm and hand dyed silk by Silk and Willow.  The couple opted for hand written vows that would be housed in a letterpress vow book they could cherish for generations to come.  No detail was lacking and Meghan Murphy, photographer behind A Still Breath, was there to document them all.  She was intentional in creating wedding photography with a journalistic style for the couple.      


From A Still Breath

Brittany and Joel filled their day with the people that are dearest to their hearts; believing that less is more and friends are what really make all the difference. From the provided straw fans for each guest, to the family style dinner and long tables, everyone was loved hard and left knowing they were cared about immensely. These two chose tasteful simplicity, the lightest pinks, rich burgundies, lace accents and stained wood. The handwritten vows were personal and honest and each bridesmaid was given loads of freedom to find a dress that felt uniquely them and made them each feel beautiful. I don’t imagine wedding guests have ever felt more at home and welcome. These two have the warmest hearts and every moment of their day reflected this.
