Leanne + Brett

Wedding Day: May 7, 2016

I have been thoroughly enjoying the warm weather of late, and thinking of all things bright and sunny always reminds me of pretty summer weddings. Leanne and Brett's Southern Farmhouse wedding is the perfect example of such a wedding. 

Leanne was such a sweet bride to work with and helping her coordinate her big day was an absolute treat! Her wedding gown was incredibly romantic with an underlayer of light blush - a nod to her very girly self, which I love! The florals provided by Linda Bearden of Flowers from the Heart were refreshingly feminine and dainty. 


Leanne and Brett opted to do a First Look - a great option for couples who want to go straight into the reception after the ceremony. It was a joyful moment and the pictures captured by Stephanie Benzaia give me all the feels! Such a sweet way to begin the day. 

Brett's fun groomsmen wore light beige suits and the pretty maids were dressed in lilac gowns, coordinating with their bouquets. All in all, it was a light pastel color scheme and it was a beautiful way to welcome in the early summer season. 


After a sweet ceremony overlooking a distant lake, Leanne and Brett's family and friends walked up to the adorable barn at Walters Farms to a delicious meal and gorgeous cakes. The succulent accent on the bride's cake was a favorite detail of mine! 

Bride, Groom, and guests had a joyful evening filled with dancing and laughter - despite the humid weather that also comes with the beginning of those long summer days. To end the night, Leanne and Brett left amidst the loud shouts of congratulations and Alabama and Auburn shakers waving them goodbye. Another perfect ending to a truly Southern, truly Alabama wedding.
