Jessica and Justin – American Village, Montevallo, AL

Jessica and Justin are high school sweet hearts. They had been together on and off but finally grew back together and decided to tie the knot this past June. This Netflix-loving Nintendo-playing duo are so sweet together, and they weren’t afraid to let loose and good off in front of me. I had too much fun photographing their engagement session and wedding day!

They did not get married at the White House, although it sure looks like it! This gorgeous wedding was at American Village in Montevallo, AL, a venue that has recreated historical American buildings like Washington Hall. I love how regal this location is and all the different buildings gave us endless photo ops. Jessica wore a stunning sleeved dress from Oleg Cassini for David’s Bridal and her bridesmaids wore blush pink, perfectly complimented with their pastel-colored bouquets. The rain thankfully held off during portraits until we were all inside for their ceremony. Their day was perfect and I am so thankful to have been able to document their wedding.
