December is already such a special time of year, but Katie and Alex gave the season a whole new meaning when they celebrated their love in an absolutely charming winter ceremony and reception amidst family and friends in Mobile, Alabama. Preceded by bridesmaids in elegant charcoal dresses and groomsmen in striking black tuxedos from The Black Tux, the bride glided towards her beaming husband-to-be in a long Watter’s lace embroidered gown in the Ashland Place United Methodist Church. After saying ‘I do,’ the couple was swept away in an Old Shell Trolley to a historical wedding venue in Mobile, Alabama, The Richards DAR House Museum, where Katie’s parents had been wedded 31 years prior. The newlyweds joined their guests for an intimate outdoor reception, complete with personal touches and family traditions– including homemade gingerbread cookies and a family recipe as favors. Holland Daze of Holland Daze Weddings, made Katie and Alex’s wedding day vision into a beautiful reality and also created elegant floral arrangements of soft peach and white garden roses, hypericum berries and stock flowers for the event, from the bride’s bouquet to the delicate reception decorations. Beneath great old oak trees strung with romantic lights in the museum’s courtyard, the party enjoyed a southern meal prepared by Naman’s Catering before Katie and Alex cut into their four tiered wedding cake garnished with florals. With music provided by AnyDayDJ, the newlyweds danced the evening away out in the crisp winter air before being showered in paper confetti as they escaped into the night. Captured by W&E Photographie, a wedding photographer in Birmingham, Alabama, Katie and Alex’s charming southern wedding made for a season full of celebration.
