Christie & Ben | Traditional Wedding at Blackberry Farm

A couple years ago, I met the sweet and talented Heather Ann Thomas at the A Bryan Photo workshop in Birmingham, and today I finally get to feature her beautiful work. She takes utterly frame-worthy photos that I imagine any couple would be pleased to have as wedding keepsakes. But I’ll let the images speak for themselves…

Some details from the bride and groom:

Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  Ben and I had a weekend getaway to Blackberry Farm two years prior and absolutely fell in love with its charm and tranquil setting.

What was your favorite moment of the day?  Ben and I planned all photography to take place before the ceremony so we could maximize our time with guests who traveled to be with us on our special day. We wanted out “first look” to be a lasting memory, so I stood in the Blackberry Farm garden in my wedding dress and Ben saw me for the first time and brought me my bridal bouquet. We had a very intimate moment before everything started that afternoon.

What advice do you have for other brides?  Of course, enjoy every moment! It goes by so quickly and what details may seem significant during the planning period won’t be in the end. You will remember your happy moments and all of your friends and family sharing in your wedding day.
