shelley + leith
Shelley and Leith had the most stunning wedding in Auburn, AL! The magical day was something that people will remember forever!
The ceremony was held at First Baptist Church Opelika, a local church in Auburn, followed by their reception at the iconic golf course and facility, Auburn University Club. Along with coordinating the day, hues of greenery and white florals filled the venue by a destination wedding planning and floral design team, Thorne & Thistle. Their stunning photos were captured by a local Alabama photographer and videographer couple, Alex & Dylan Photo & Video. Their invitations were created by the talented invitation printing service, Annabelle’s. To end the night, a Birmingham live event artist, Barbara Davis, painted the reception scene. Their friends and family danced the night away with the local Montgomery wedding band, the 2nd Coming!
Shelley wanted to customize her wedding dress, so picking the Build-A-Bride™ collection was the perfect choice! Shelley designed her dress by combining the Diana Kelly silhouette with the neckline of the Vivienne Beau gown. Diana Kelly is a timeless wedding dress with a modified ball gown that features a chapel length train and flat front skirt. Our Vivienne Beau silhouette is a sophisticated wedding dress with a v-neckline and a full gathered skirt. Shelley completed her bridal look by adding our popular Katie lace to the back of her dress. This addition complimented her v-neck wedding gown perfectly! With the combination of the two dresses, Shelley created a one of a kind Build-A-Bride™ gown. Along with Shelley wearing her dress on the wedding day, the couple took portraits the following day after their wedding to keep the tradition of saving the first look for the ceremony. Their bridesmaids wore dresses from the popular bridesmaid boutique, Bella Bridesmaids.
We are so happy to be a part of Shelley and Leith’s wedding weekend. Shelley made a beautiful bride, and we wish the very best to the happy couple!
