Laura and Justin had the definition of a princess wedding, from the string quintet that moved the guests during the ceremony to dancing on top of the world at The Club. Laura was gorgeous and Justin could not take his eyes off of her.
Our favorite moments of the day ...
When Justin first saw Laura, all he could say was "Oh my, Oh my ...". To translate, I think that means Laura did a phenomenal job on choosing just the right wedding dress! I love the little spin, so Justin could see the whole dress.
After their first sight at Covenant Presbyterian Church, their photographer David Shirk, took them to Samford to do their couple photos. This was a great idea! It gave Justin and Laura time to just be with each other (without interruption) and before the day's events got into full swing. Plus, the imagery was beautiful!
There were so many family heirlooms throughout the wedding. I'll name just a few. Laura's garter was worn by her mother and grandmother at their weddings. The penny in Laura's shoe was also worn by her mother and grandmother, and was dated the year of her grandmother's birth. The lace on her bouquet and bridal cake table was from the wedding dress that her mother and her grandmother wore. How precious is the connection between this family's three generations of love stories?
One of my favorite moments of the day was when Justin gave Laura a bible with her "soon-to-be" name on it. What a perfect gift!! This has to be one of my favorite wedding day gifts!
And finally ... because every bride should feel "on top of the world" on her wedding day, the views from The Club made you feel like that. The lights from the Birmingham skyline made the evening so romantic.
Make sure you leave a comment to tell Justin and Laura congratulations!
