So. Mindy & Calvin got married on June 10th at Cahaba Brewery. And can I just cut right to the good stuff? Because this wedding was FULL of it!
- Despite weeks (WEEKS, I tell you) of torrential downpours, Mindy's day was 100% RAIN FREE! I mean not a drop! Even though I love getting to use my cute clear umbrella when needed, I was glad I didn't have to.
- The whole day was at a Brewery, so...you guessed it. Big tall glasses o' freshmade brews were available alllll day.
- Oh! How about all the home-made details that her family put together like PROS? There was creamy white wedding cake, almond flavored. <3 <3 And then the flowers--bouquets, wreaths, and all--from Davis' wholesale that Mindy's mother-in-law artfully designed. Pinks, oranges, purples--the wreaths and bouqets were every color of a sunrise.
- The brides' & maid's shoes? Converse with brightly colored ribbon-laces, of course.
And I haven't even mentioned the antique velvet couches, the hilarious groom + groomsman, and the huge warehouse full of historic shining firetrucks that we just so *happened* to get B+G portraits in.
I can't forget to mention the SWEETEST flower girl and ringbearer I think I have ever seen. With brilliant blonde hair and bright blue eyes, they were unbearably cute. (Look for her in the last picture--you won't regret it! ;) )
And now, I'll let the pictures tell the story:
Ok, can I just stop you here? Because this moment was the best ever. We were posing Mindy for some of her bridal portraits--no Calvin, just her perched on the couch--and he was just totally adoring his new bride. He couldn't look away!
cough. ahem. another note here. warning: tear-jerking/heartwarming moment ahead...
