Brittany + Chris | Oak Meadow Event Center | Ohatchee, AL

What’s your style? More dark and moody, or do you like white and bright? If you’re a fan of the latter, you’re going to want to see this!! Every little bit of Brittany and Chris’ (“Rosey”) wedding day went together so well…I mean just LOOK AT IT! Stunning, am I right?! (And we haven’t even started talking about that amazing DRESS!!!)

Brittany’s dress from Diane’s Formal Affair was definitely one of my favorites…and it had a CAPE. A long, glittery, wintery (is that a word?) cape with complete Elsa vibes that she pulled out for the reception. OBSESSED. I’ve got to say, this totally changed my viewpoint on winter weddings! If you have a winter wedding, you need to channel your inner Elsa, and you need a cape. Trust me. It’s magical.

This was also our first time traveling to Ohatchee, AL. It was a bit of a drive from home - about 2 hours from Huntsville - but of course we were happy to do it, especially when we saw this venue! It was such a DREAM. (And the white walls and ceiling make this photographer very happy!) It was modern with touches of rustic, with concrete floor and shiplap everywhere. (Any Joanna Gaines fans out there?! ME ME ME!! #shiplap) 

I love venues like this one, bright and beautiful for portraits indoors, and surrounded by grass and woods for plenty of portrait options outdoors as well. Here are a few couples portraits, and some of the wedding party as well!

We were hoping for a pretty sunset for pictures too, but it was a cloudy day, with drizzling rain every so often. Thankfully it all cleared up by ceremony time! 

The ceremony was in front of Oak Meadow’s big beautiful fireplace. Their florist and coordinator (Carrie Mashburn) added greenery around the mantel and kept the clean and simple look the fireplace provided. 

After the ceremony, the cocktail hour began with a bar, complete with a cool neon sign of the couple’s new name, and cheese and fruit appetizers for the guests. Plus a hot chocolate bar for the kids!! So cute!

The reception began with dinner from Rusty’s BBQ, and then plenty of dancing and celebrating the new Mr. & Mrs.! 

And can we talk about THESE CAKES?! A cake with macaroons?! AND a cake with chocolate covered strawberries?! My sweet tooth cannot even handle these pictures. (Cakes by Desiree Calloway)

Rosey and Brittany, we absolutely loved spending this beautiful day with you both. Your wedding day was picture perfect, and we are so thankful you had us there to capture all these memories. Congratulations!!!!!
