On an absolutely breathtaking day in May, a beautiful wedding took place and a lovely couple made a lifelong commitment. This wedding has remained one of my all-time favorites…
Courtney and Shane tied the knot at The Sonnet House, a rustic, tucked-away jewel, in Birmingham, Alabama. The event was planned by Kathy Raughley Events, and oh my, they certainly created a photographer’s dream come true! With elegant floral arrangements by Kathy Miller, cakes to-die-for by Evelyn Criswell, and catering, and bands, and amazing cars…the list goes on and on.
We kicked off the day at a wonderful salon in Saks, complete with Mac make-up (my FAVE). The fabulous make-up artistry is the creation of uber-fabulous Jen Matthews of Porcelain and Pink. Check her out - this girl has some mad skills!
What really made this day so incredible was the relationship between Courtney and Shane - the tenderness and energy that they brought to their wedding day. I couldn’t have been more honored to have worked with them. They have both been a great blessing to me.
As a fun side note, I’d like to brag on the studio a bit and mention that The Powell’s pre-album design, created by our assistant and album designer, was perfect as is! There wasn’t a single change requested!
I wish Courtney and Shane all the best in their new life together. I am so very happy for you! Congratulations and Best Wishes!
