Hannah & Matt // Banks Wedding // The Great Gatsby // Southside Baptist Church // The Florentine // Birmingham, AL

“I love her, and that’s the beginning and end of everything.”
-F. Scott Fitzgerald

Hannah and Matt are just one of those couples you will never forget. They are so incredibly perfect for one another in so many ways. The theme of their wedding was The Great Gatsby, and what a better place to have a 1920s inspired wedding van in historical Birmingham Alabama. The architecture has been so well preserved in several of the venues Hannah and Matt chose to really capture that 20s theme. From the historic Tutwiler hotel, to the Southside Baptist church for the ceremony and finally The restored Florentine building for their reception. Sit back and get ready to witness some of the best places Birmingham has to offer! You see more of Birmingham sites in their engagement session. View it here.

Hannah & Matt have one of those high school sweetheart love stories that we all adore to hear.
It started when they decided to start talking to one another after a basketball game one evening. They told their friends and parents that they would just be hanging out for an hour or so to talk, but that our turned into several hours and they have been inseparable ever sense.

And their wedding day was no different as far as the word “inseparable” goes.
The day started off with love letters that they wrote one another and when we heard them read it out loud we were crying happy tears with them. Matt wrote his letter in The form of a gift: A hard back copy of The Great Gatsby novel.
The bridesmaids surprised Hannah with a sweet book filled with letters and memories they each cherished with her. The groomsmen and Matt shared celebratory cigars before he went to meet his bride for their first look.
You could sense they’re incredible excitement when they saw each other for the first time and they could not stop smiling. This day was FINALLY happening.

their classic ceremony took place at Southside Baptist Church with their closest friends and family to witness. Afterwords they celebrated at the historic Florentine building (recently restored to its full glory) to party the night away.

One of Hannah’s visions for her day was to have a “snowy” get away. our friends at On-Site Productions provided a snow machine to pull off her idea! We also wanted to take it vantage of the “snow” in Alabama and snap some romantic photos in this winter wonderland!

We cannot thank you two enough, and we feel like you to deserve the absolute best out of life because you are some of the absolute best people we know! Thank you a million times for allowing us to be such a huge part of your new adventure together. We adored being surrounded by your love and we wish you the most love and happiness!
