Mary Lee and Steven were married on April 17, 2010, at Aldridge Gardens in Birmingham, Alabama. These two poured their heart and SOULS into this wedding, as is evidenced by the details.
A locket holding photos of the bride's grandmothers was wrapped around her bouquet. Mary Lee was named for her grandmothers Marion and Leona. The couple loves to shop on Etsy for anything vintage or handmade. They bought the wooden printing blocks (seen on the groom's cake table), the guestbook, and earrings for the bridesmaids from Etsy vendors. The get away car was a 1952 Ford Customline which was provided by George Brasher, a long-time friend of the bride's family. The signpost was made by the couple and the bride's parents the weekend before the wedding. Steven and Mary Lee salvaged wood for the signs from an old abandoned property. Most of the pieces came from an old fence and the "Welcome" sign was part of a drawer. Steven cut the wood to point at one end and painted them with a lime whitewash. Steven, Mary Lee, and her mother painted the different signs with black oil paint.
