Danielle + James: A Classic Birmingham Wedding

Weddings + Celebrations

September 15, 2017

Last September, Danielle and James were married in gorgeously classic wedding at Birmingham’s Park Crest Event Facility. It was one of the first weddings held in their newly completed Carriage House, and it did not disappoint!

From the first time I sat down with Danielle and James to talk about their day, I knew it was going to be amazing. They are both so kind and joyful, and the way they look at one another is nothing short of amazing.

I love that they come from different parts of the US (San Francisco for James and Cleveland, OH for Danielle), and met while in law school at Georgetown. It wasn’t long after law school they made Birmingham home and invited all their friends and family to come celebrate their love in an epic celebration (Ryan with On Site Productions kept them on the dance floor all.night.long).

Danielle was an absolutely STUNNING bride. And her dress. My goodness, y’all. HER DRESS.

Did I mention the dress? It is absolutely gorgeous, and this back. Y’ALL.

While all ceremonies are full of love and emotion, this one had us all up in our feels. From their beautifully heartfelt vows to James’ father officiating, there wasn’t a dry eye around!

One of my favorite details was their table names and the beautiful gold mirror with hand lettered seating that reflecting all of the places that hold so much meaning for them from Georgetown and in their new home of Birmingham.
