Kristen and James Orchard Lake Country Club Wedding was so unbelievably beautiful. What a great day it turned out to be. While we did have some rain scattered throughout the day it did not ruin this amazing couples joy on their special day! Kristen and James really embodied what happiness looks like on a wedding day.
The pair got ready at the Orchard Lake Country Club. In the women’s locker room, Kristen was surrounded by her sisters and friends. They helped her with each and every finishing touch of her look and they were in awe once they saw her ready. I was able to capture the cutest moment as her bridesmaids had a first look! The bridesmaids put on their unique and stunning floral dresses and just down the hall the groomsmen got ready straightening their bow ties!
Kristen and James ceremony took place at the First United Methodist Church in Birmingham. This was such a gorgeous church with high ceilings and a balcony at the back of the church, great for some amazing photos. Kristen and James exchanged vows surrounded by every single person they love in their lives. It’s always so incredible to know that on this one day, you will have everyone there in one place, because of their love for you. Once the ceremony had ended, the couple got into a car in route to the Orchard Lake Country Club with a just married sign on the back! So classic.
The weather held out and we captured some beautiful moments of the whole wedding party outside as well as Kristen and James on their own. Once we went inside, Kristen and James took some beautiful photos as he spinned her around. They ended up being some of our favorites!
At their reception, Kristen and James were shown so much love from their family with countless speeches, toasts, and hugs. They shared a first dance to Frank Sinatra’s The Way You Look Tonight. Such a perfect song. As the night went on the two looked so happy and in love. It was such a joy being there to capture them.
Take a look at this amazing couple and their beautiful day!
