Huntsville Alabama Wedding Photography (Christy + Anthony's First United Methodist Church Wedding)

March 12, 2018

Do you guys know how crazy December can be?  Holiday parties, kids home from school, shopping, travel.  It is soooo busy.  Because of that I always try to take the month of December off from work to be with my family.  I'm so glad I broke my rule this year and booked Christy and Anthony's December wedding.  If a bride and groom can pull off a wedding on December 26th, then I can certainly photograph it.  I promise I wasn't trying to escape from my kids for a day of Christmas break!  Nope, not at all!

Honestly though, I love winter weddings and this December wedding was no exception.  We spent most of our time in the gorgeous Elyton Hotel.  As soon as we walked in the hotel I started planning to stay there ASAP!  It was such a beautiful place with an endless supply of places to photograph the couple.  Christy and Anthony chose to exchange their vows in the chapel of the First United Methodist Church of Birmingham, AL.  It was the perfect setting for their intimate ceremony.  After the ceremony, we headed back to the Elyton Hotel for more photos of the couple.  The nighttime views from the rooftop bar, Moon Shine, were amazing!  I am still obsessing over the cape she chose for after the ceremony.  Winter wedding perfection!

The reception at The Yard Restaurant at The Elyton Hotel was absolutely perfect!  Amy Smith from Papaya Wedding Planning was on top of every single detail!  Christy and Anthony, we are so honored to have had the opportunity to photograph your wedding day.  We wish you a lifetime of happiness together.
