Today, I present to you the reason why we traveled down South during Thanksgiving week….the wedding of my childhood classmate and best friend from KS, Mary Ann to her fiance, Wesley. Mary Ann’s family had moved to Alabama when we both reached high school, and she wasn’t too happy with it at the time, but beyond all that, she found someone who complimented her in every way in Wesley. It is evident when you see how they look into each other’s eyes just how much love they have for each other.
Days before the wedding, Annie & I had the opportunity to observe how tightly knit Mary Ann’s aunts & uncles worked together to prepare the decorations, center pieces, & flowers…as well as Thanksgiving dinner!!! During the day of the wedding, Mary Ann + Wesley suggested we take some detail shots and also shots of them getting ready since both Annie & I were there anyway. When we got to the ceremony site, St John the Baptist Catholic Church, we had the opportunity in meeting another awesome husband + wife team in Amber + Brian of Amber Nichole Photography. What made Mary Ann + Wesley’s ceremony even more special is that Father Nioret & Father Pat, Mary Ann’s uncles, officiated it. Afterwards, Mary Ann + Wesley exited the church in style, with the guests blowing bubbles, as they approached the Rolls Royce, which would chauffeur them to the reception site, Westin Huntsville!!! The speeches given at the reception were hilarious especially Wesley’s….Mary Ann ‘allowed’ him to wear green this day…haha. Thanks again Mary Ann + Wesley for inviting us to observe your special day…it’s too bad my entire family couldn’t make it out, but it was great to see the whole clan again and we definitely had a great time =D!!!
Here are a couple of the other vendors that made this day possible:
