Russell Lands on Lake Martin | The Stables and Springhouse Restaurant Wedding ft. Taylor and Allison

A winter wedding at The Stables on Russell Lands with reception following at the Springhouse Restaurant, all located on Lake Martin. I’m still exploring Alabama as a big of a newbie, and it was such a treat to see this lake and spend some time there for the wedding. Weather in December is so unpredictable, and on Taylor + Allison’s day, it rained start to finish. Not a drizzle, not just a few drops…a steady pour. Every now and then this scenario happens, and it’s time to stay positive and improvise. ;) Taylor and Allison did not complain, stress, or let the weather distract them from the joy of the day. I have so much love and appreciation for their cheerful disposition and amazing, hospitable families. They made the whole weekend warm and welcoming for my second shooter and me.

It was a real treat to have this wedding featured in the February issue of Birmingham Magazine. I’m especially thankful for my second shooter Kelsey for sticking with me throughout the day to get some special moments (some of the images in this blog are from her). I’m grateful to Taylor and Allison for inviting me to be part of their day, and hope you enjoy looking through these images.
