    Meagan and Gary’s Seagrove Beach Florida Wedding was my last wedding of 2015 and was by far one of my favorites all year.  After photographing Meagan’s sister’s wedding earlier in the year, her family is so special to me now.  They have the kindest hearts, the most giving spirits and KNOW how to throw a party…and boy, can they DANCE! I have absolutely loved getting to know them all and have felt so incredibly honored to have been a part of their incredibly busy, yet incredibly special year.  I’m just sad they don’t have any other daughters!

    Meagan & Gary’s 30A wedding couldn’t have been more perfect…even a downpour during the reception didn’t stop their joy.  I’ve never seen a family pull together so quickly, so completely and with huge smiles on their faces the entire time.  I hope they know how much of a blessing they all are to me.

    Thank you Meagan, Gary and the entire Sloan family for allowing me to be a part of your lives last year.  It was my honor.  xo~

      Melissa Franklin - On February 12, 2016 the man of my dreams dropped to one knee and asked me to spend forever with him. Seth and I had our first date outside of The Club as we spent hours getting to know each other. Since that day, The Club has always been one of our favorite places to go to and make memories. Both of our families were going to The Club for what I thought was a “political campaign fundraiser” with both of our families. It was nothing out of the ordinary to go out on the balcony to take pictures with the beautiful scenery. Before taking the first picture, Seth caught me off guard by grabbing me by both arms saying, “Before we take a picture…” I knew instantly that he was about to ask me to marry him. It was perfect because both of our families were standing right there to witness the proposal and capture it on camera. It turns out that Seth had been coordinating with my older brother, Drew, to find a way to get both families to The Club. About a week before the event, Drew sent a text message to our family text thread inviting us to what he said was going to be a “political fundraiser” for one of our family friends. Both families responded with interest and played along. It worked out perfectly, along with a surprise engagement party at The Club after the proposal with our close friends and extended family members! It was a remarkable night that we will never forget!

    Lauren & Will’s Santa Rosa Beach, FL wedding was one of my favorites from the year.  The beach is my happy place, so anytime I can travel there I’m a happy girl. There is something so peaceful and beautiful about the soft colors of the sand and water…it just whispers love and romance.  Lauren chose 331 South, located on the Choctawhatchee Bay, as her ceremony and reception venue and it was a stunning backdrop for a wedding.  I’m so happy I was able to enjoy this gorgeous day with this beautiful couple.

    Sarah and Josh are the sweetest couple.  Friends since middle school, Josh always knew that she was the one for him.  It took Sarah a little longer to figure it out, but luckily she did and now they are living happily ever after.

    I loved being a part of Sarah & Josh’s wedding day. Their ceremony took place at Trinity United Methodist Church in Homewood followed by a reception at The Club in Birmingham.  Every single detail was so lovely, from the gorgeous displays of lush peach and ivory florals to the incredible fireworks show overlooking the Birmingham skyline to finish the night.  It was such a magical night and I am honored to have been a part.

    Thank you Sarah and Josh!
