February 2017. I got a call at the studio from a sweet mother-of-the-bride, Nicole. She told me Old South had been referred to her on her tour of the Duke Mansion (oh how we love our vendor relationships!) and wanted more information. Nicole and her daughter, Allie, were in the early planning stages but I could sense they were a good fit for our company. Our brides are VERY family-oriented, sentimental and outgoing. We set up a studio appointment for 2 weeks later and made it all official.
Allie and Ethan met at a fraternity party at the University of Alabama. Sparks flew and last Christmas, in front of all of her family, Ethan popped the question. They are such a perfect fit, these two! Both are so kind, thoughtful, gracious, easy-going and fun. They had a wedding day that suited them perfectly! I love when the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception are all in our beautiful spot. The Duke Mansion’s gardens offer amazing outdoor ceremony options and their historic southern home is always a wow factor during cocktail hour and reception time. Their guests, family and friends had the time of their lives on 6.9.18 and we adored capturing it all!
Take a peek at Part 1 of Allie and Ethan’s wedding day. It makes my southern girl heart flutter in all the right ways! Pop over tomorrow for the BIG reception to follow!
