The Big Picture
Lovelies, I have to say, I have been blessed to work with such sweet families and down to earth brides, and Kelton and her groom, Alex, were no exception. From the moment we began planning it was clear to me that Kelton was enjoying every minute of the process – and that made it a dream event for me! This family was so gracious and their love and joy for the happy couple was palpable on the big day.
All the Details
These Auburn fans didn’t let game day interrupt their chosen date to wed, they simply offered the perfect solution: tuning in on the big screen during the reception! This was a huge hit for all the Tiger fans in attendance. And a “traditional” groom’s cake? Not for Alex, who insisted on offering guests his sweet tooth favorite: Krispy Kreme donuts. But don’t let the idea of football and glazed crullers fool you, the reception was anything but casual, with gorgeous floral arrangements dressing pretty much everything in sight.
Yes, the courtyard at the Fairhope Inn looked like a Secret Garden and the fairy tale effect was sealed when Kelton and Alex departed in a horse-drawn carriage, underneath clouds of white serpentine confetti tossed by the guests – a beautiful exit for a beautiful couple! Take a look…

The bridesmaids were dressed in a similar shade as the bride who wore a gown from Justin Alexander Bridal , giving the effect of a true white wedding.
