From the moment I laid eyes on this stunning shoot from Ashley Kelemen and Mary Me Brides I wanted to let out the loudest of squeals. It's pure gorgeous. With florals from Melissa Kendall Floral Design so gorgeous I could cry and perfectly curated pretty, I'm head over heels in love with this gallery.

From Ashley Kelemen...When planning a trip down South, I was able to team up with these incredible local vendors to pull together some true southern inspiration! I have always had a fascination with the culture and beautiful scenery in this part of the country, and dreamed of shooting some beautiful inspiration below the dripping spanish moss. Though the shoot was focused on bridal style, we had a lot of fun pulling together a little whiskey bar as an homage to the groom! The day of the shoot, we were hit with an unseasonable rainstorm, which added to the moodiness and drama of the scenery around us.

From Mary Me Brides...With this being Ashley's very first time to Alabama we wanted to pull together a shoot that gave her the ultimate southern experience. Our inspiration came largely in part from the true southern charm that Alabama has to offer. Taking the classic southern aspects and adding a touch of elegance and a little wow factor we came up with the concept. We wanted to portray the natural beauty of Alabama while still bringing in the elegance we so love.
