Missy and Bobby are such a wonderful couple…when I met them, I couldn’t wait to photograph their wedding. They are simply great and I had a suspicion that their wedding was going to be just like them — FUN!
Guess what? I was right.
Missy was an absolutely beautiful bride.
And she was attended by 6 lovely bridesmaids.
The flowers Missy chose were so vibrant and colorful. They fit her personality perfectly.
Her groom, Bobby, was handsome in his tux.
And he was accompanied by a group of guys who clean up quite well. (The day was sooo very hot, we only got outside for a very few photos.)
Missy and her mom seem to have such a sweet, special relationship ~ not to mention, they look so much alike!
Several years ago, Bobby’s mother passed away…her small Bible has been passed through the family as her kids have gotten married. April, Bobby’s sister (and a precious personal friend of mine), was the last person to receive the Bible on the day she married her husband. On this special day, she passed it on to her almost-sister-in-law, who will pass it on when the next person gets married. Such a special and timeless tradition!
Missy and Bobby’s ceremony was beautiful…and so was Missy’s dress.
Bar none, this is my favorite photo of the day. I completely love the look on Bobby’s face, as he sees his bride for the first time.
After the ceremony, we braved the heat for just a few minutes to grab some photos of the bride and groom…
…and their super fun wedding party!
Missy and Bobby make a lovely couple.
Missy’s dress makes me think of Belle, from Beauty and the Beast.
I really thought the flowers Missy chose for her cake were perfect – to me, it’s hard to beat live flowers. Especially lilies!
The groom’s cake was the most delicious thing I think I’ve ever eaten. Bobby is a huge University of Alabama fan (Roll Tide!) and not only was his cake pure chocolate and peanut butter…it had a great UA theme.
Some of his family thought it would be hilarious if they created a faux groom’s table ~ you know, to confuse the staunch Alabama fan. So, before the reception began, they snuck in, put the groom’s cake away, and replaced it with this…
Complete with tiny toilet paper rolling tiny Toomer’s Corner.
During their first dance, Bobby caught a glimpse of something just a littttle bit off.
It really was quite funny – a true show stopper!
Missy and her dad had a very sweet Father-Daughter dance.
And then it was Bobby and Missy’s turn again and they invited others to the floor.
Here are a few reception highlights* ~ there was a lot of line dancing (I’m beginning to think I may be the only person in the world who doesn’t have that particular skill!)
*special thanks to Patrick Jacks for his help during the wedding and reception!
On our way out, I met the folks who had been decorating the car…and, of course, had to snap a few photos of that. I must say, they did quite a good job! I wonder if anyone actually “honked” at Missy and Bobby when they left?
To close, I thought I would rewind to earlier in the day.
Missy and Bobby are such a special couple…and I know they have many years of wedded bliss ahead of them!! Guys, thanks SO much for letting me be part of your very special day…I had a blast, and it looks like you did too! Congratulations!!
