Classic

From Jessica Lorren PhotographyBeau & Emaline’s wedding on the bay in Southern Alabama felt like a step back in time. Every detail of their day was a classic representation of a timeless love. I hope you feel it as you glance through these images. From the Bride… We felt it was important that the vibe reflect who we are, and emulate the most sincere expression of our love. We decided on a style that we would describe as “comfortable elegance”–something that I think our vendors really perfected. We were married on October 17, 2015, at Sacred Heart Chapel, a historic 19th- century chapel on the bluff of Mobile Bay. The reception followed at my parent’s home, also along the bay. We wanted our guests to enjoy themselves in the most sincere, natural setting – our backyard. It was important to us to include these special nods to our lives (like my childhood home, nontraditional wedding music, exiting by boat, and many other personal touches. We were adamant that our wedding should not only celebrate our lives together, but the things that created us into the person that each other fell in love with.

Little did I know I would marry a man

on that football fieldThe Bride   

From The Bride…As a child, my father made sure that our family of 4 attended every single at home Auburn football game. We sat in section 42 and cheered on our Auburn Tigers for over 10 years together. Little did I know as a child, sitting beside the first man I loved the most, that the man I would marry would be a man that years down would be a player on that football field.

Andrew and I met at an Auburn vs LSU football game in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Our friends introduced us not really expecting that we would hit it off immediately…but we did! We spent the next 8 years together very happily until tragedy and sadness struck both of our families.

On December 9th, 2014 our beautiful niece was born very healthy and a huge head full of black hair. Soon after, my sister suffered from an Amniotic Fluid Embolism that eventually took her life on March 24th, 2015. I write that as part of my love story because without the love and support of my husband I would be one lost soul. He loved me before then, loved me during when I was at my lowest, and loves me now. And I know that.

We were engaged on June 12th, 2015 in his hometown of Hinsdale, IL. He asked me to marry him under a dogwood tree that shadowed over his parents patio. He started his proposal by telling me how he and his father had planted that tree when he was a young boy and how was amazed how much it had grown. I realized this was a symbol of what we would be…and in some ways already were.

When I first began the process of planning our wedding, I knew I wanted a natural elegant wedding surrounded by the cathedral of God given nature. We were married on April 9th at Springhouse in my small hometown of Alabama made famous my beautiful Lake Martin. My heart and soul. Our day was filled with people we love, overflowing ranunculus, weather better that I could have even imagined.

The one thing I have to say about our special day is that I would do it all over again and in the exact same way. Obviously, there were chairs there that I would have liked to have been filled and a spot of green lawn specifically marked for my sister to stand beside me. On the other side of me, however, I had a man that dedicated his life to our marriage and our life together. In my eyes, he has been my husband since I met him.
