Now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story no one on earth has read, which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.
– C.S. Lewis
We adore love stories and the wedding day is the beginning of a new chapter. Jonathan and Emily’s story began when they met during youth group at their church. One of the many things we love about this couple is their genuine desire to seek the Lord. It’s refreshing!
Gabrella Manor is the most romantic place to get married in Birmingham, AL. The exterior of this historic venue is covered with vines and the architecture is simply beautiful. Emily was breath-taking in her lace gown. When Jonathan saw her for the first time, he grinned from cheek to cheek…then kissed her immediately.
We just love watching Jonathan in Emily’s presence. His whole face lights up!
Jonathan and Emily’s wedding day had bright hues of coral complimented with ivory and creams. Emily’s bridesmaids’ dresses flowed so beautifully as they walked. The bright pop of color was lovely against the greenery that surrounded the entire venue.
The ceremony was one of our favorite moments of the day. The sun was beginning to set behind the trees and it created a dreamy atmosphere. Emily descended the stairs like a queen and met her father at the bottom. When she marched down the aisle, Jonathan’s face lit up as bright as the sun! After vows were exchanged, the entire congregation took communion. It really was a beautiful moment to photograph!
Jonathan and Emily, we cannot thank you enough for allowing us to capture your most precious memories together. May the Lord continue to bless your marriage over and over again.
