Karley & Ryan | The Willows | Cleveland, Alabama
Karley & Ryan’s wedding at The Willows in Cleveland, Alabama was beautiful. Ryan told me, “Karley gave me two options for days we can have our wedding. I looked on the Alabama Football schedule and decided that this was a game I’d be willing to miss so we picked this.” What should have been a chilly fall wedding turned into a hot, bright and sunny Summer wedding in October. That didn’t stop them from having so much fun!
This wedding was special to me because Karley and I worked together a lot on scheduling and making sure that the flow of the day would go smoothly. Thankfully, it went perfectly as each moment really stuck out and mattered so much. I’m so grateful Karley decided to do a Reveal with her Bridesmaids. One of my favorite moments of the day was seeing their reaction to her coming out for the first time in her dress. Her bridesmaids are so much fun and were the perfect wedding party to cheer them on through out the day. Wait until you see how they react in the video!
Karley and Ryan love each other so much and you can totally tell through all of their interactions that they are best friends. The screen grab below is from literally one of my favorite moments of the day. They chose not to do a First Look, but instead stand on opposite sides of the door way and take a cute picture together before the ceremony. Their time together during this moment was so sweet and you can tell that they really helped take the edge of each other before the big event!
After the ceremony, we moved into the reception hall at the Willows where they danced and laughed and ate and had so much fun with all of their friends and family.
Although it wasn’t dark enough in time for their grand exit, we hung around for a bit longer as they lit fireworks and released lanterns into the sky. What a wonderful way to commemorate their wedding day!
So without further adieu, here’s the real deal. You make the memories, we make them last forever…
