amber + dylan
Amber and Dylan’s spring wedding was bright and classic, with a few rustic elements to capture an overall sweet, southern spirit. Abby Bates Photography captured every lovely detail with her light and airy wedding photography style, and Birmingham wedding planner Melanie Jones Smith brought the couple’s wedding vision to life.
The outdoor wedding was held at Windwood Equestrian, an old-world English estate that makes for a picturesque wedding venue in Alabama. Amber’s timeless wedding dress fit the romantic wedding venue perfectly; she chose one of our newest Build-A-Bride™ wedding dress silhouettes, the Summer Wales! This trumpet wedding dress with V-neck is made in our duchess satin--a gorgeous bridal fabric that brought elevated luxury to Amber’s gown. We love the open back wedding dress detail, which is in illusion and features a pearl trim along the front and back neckline that flatters the bride’s figure.
To complement her pearl wedding dress, Amber wore a loose bridal updo and natural wedding makeup with a striking mocha lip that was styled by Elysian Studio, a Birmingham hair and makeup team. She also wore delicate drop bridal earrings and her unique engraved wedding ring. Amber carried her bright, feminine wedding dress through the blush pink bridesmaids dresses and fresh pink and white floral bouquets by Alli J Creative.
After the wedding ceremony, guests entered a gorgeous wedding reception that spread across the gardens and into the rustic barn event space. Inside they found a spread of southern food and a magnificent all-white wedding cake by Birmingham cake artist Barb’s Cakes. The whimsical signage throughout the reception tied in perfectly with the couple’s wedding stationary with custom monogram by Annabelle’s Too.
The reception dinner led into live entertainment by Color the Night Band. The addition of wedding reception glow sticks made for an extra enthusiastic dance party! All of the fun memories were captured by Birmingham wedding videographer Main Street Productions.
What a beautiful wedding Amber and Dylan had to celebrate their love amongst their family and friends! We wish this sweet couple the best!
