In November, I got the chance to second-shoot for the awesome Kelsey Freeman Photography! This was a really fun experience, and the wedding was a wonderful and small family affair.
The couple are both teachers at UAB and had their photos taken at Railroad Park, with the ceremony and reception at the Red Cat in Birmingham. We spent a little time at their cute SouthSide home before heading to the park, where Nev's family had made genuine turkish delight and baklava. Are you KIDDING ME?!? It was awesome. They had close friends and family for the pictures, and then headed to the celebrations at the Red Cat (which was an awesome and unique venue choice btw!). They mingled for a bit and then turned to the stage for the impromptu ceremony. It was such a great and simple, laid back way to do a wedding.
Nev and her family had cute guestbook "worksheets" with questions to ask the guests and even a place for them to draw pictures of the couple (WISH I had done this at my wedding!) and home-made turkish evil eye pendants. And, can I just say this is one of the most gorgeous brides I've ever seen? Such a natural beauty. Andrew wore his fathers' and grandfathers' tux, watch, and cuff links - down to the last detail, this wedding included so many mementos and family touches. Enjoy!
