adele + jared
Laissez les bons temps rouler! Adele and Jared’s spring wedding in Mobile, Alabama captured the Mardi Gras spirit in an elegantly festive way. Thanks to Mobile wedding photographer Chad Riley and wedding videographer Pioneer Productions, every sweet detail from the day was captured.
Adele looked classically beautiful in her Heidi Elnora Build-A-Bride™ gown, which combined multiple add-ons to create a vintage-inspired wedding dress. When Adele came in for her appointment, she had an image of her mom on her wedding day wearing her grandmother’s wedding dress, and she was interested in creating her own version of it. She chose our Ella Grace silhouette, which is an A-line wedding dress with a sweetheart neckline. Wanting a full lace wedding dress, Adele added our Paydan long-sleeve lace wedding dress topper and a lace skirt overlay in our French Alencon Katie lace.
For her bridal accessories, Adele selected our Katie veil, a stunning chapel-length wedding veil that features the same French Alencon lace as her wedding dress. She wore a pair of Loeffler Randall bow heels, which is a popular bridal shoe for a whimsical look. However, our favorite bridal accessory was Adele’s stunning diamond engagement ring from Friedman’s, which complemented both her diamond wedding band and Jared’s white gold wedding band from Elliott’s Fine Jewelry
Adele and her bridesmaids had their wedding hair done by Jessica Chavez Price and their wedding makeup done by Courtney Matthews. We love the hot pink bridesmaids dresses from Azazie that Adele chose for her ladies--the bold color fit the spirited Mardi Gras style of the day! Jared and his groomsmen went for a classic wedding day look, opting for white tuxedo jackets from Men’s Wearhouse.
The bride and groom exchanged vows at Dauphin Way United Methodist Church, which was decorated with bright floral arrangements in shades of hot pink, orange, and yellow by local florist Ron Barrett. We love how local wedding planner Patricia Becker combined a traditional wedding aesthetic with modern, bright colors! In classic Mobile style, a wedding trolley by Old Shell Trolley Company transported the wedding party during the day, while a fantastic Second Line band led the group in spirited fashion to their wedding reception. The Excelsior Band has been performing jazz music since 1883 and is a legend in the city of Mobile when it comes to Second Line festivities!
The lively reception was held in a wedding tent at Fort Conde Inn, a historic boutique hotel in Mobile. Popular wedding band Fly By Radio entertained guests all night, as did delicious wedding catering by Mobile chef Clifton Morrissette. The event rentals by Port City Rentals and lighting by Show Biz helped set the stage for the gorgeous floral wedding cake and chocolate peanut butter groom’s cake by Cakes by Judi, a local Mobile bakery. The lovely evening ended with a sparkler send-off that lit up the night and capped off the wedding day celebrations.
Adele was a genuine and kindhearted bride to work with, and we are so happy we helped her find her dream dress! Best wishes to the newlyweds!
