When I first visited Selma, I learned that Selma is the butterfly capital of Alabama. It was years before I actually saw any butterflies in this area, but they were swarming the historic home where Kenzie took her bridal portraits. Of course I had to get a few photos of them!
One of the things I love about living in one of the oldest cities in Alabama is there is no shortage of antique chairs! Something about an antique chair at a bridal session just adds so much elegance. Kenzie’s long veil and train with the perfect minimalist bow really shined against the antique chairs we used! Anytime a bride chooses a long veil, we are 100 percent doing a veil toss. Huge thanks to her sister, Jamie, for tossing Kenzie’s veil like a pro!
Something else I loved? Kenzie chose to keep her wedding gown a secret from everyone except her mom and her sister. Not even her bridesmaids knew what her gown looked like until her wedding day! Maybe I’m a little biased because I did the same thing when I got married, but I just love the anticipation it builds. Plus, it makes everyone’s reactions genuine, which is exactly what Kenzie wanted. She did a first look with her bridesmaids, her dad, and her grandparents. How sweet is that? You can see their reactions here!
Kenzie, thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your bridal session, engagement session, and wedding! You looked absolutely stunning and I am obsessed with your beautiful portraits! I enjoyed spending the afternoon with you, your mom, and your sister! It made me even more excited for your wedding day and it was so fun to see the looks on everyone’s faces when they saw you in your dress for the first time. Thank you again for letting me be part of this chapter in your life!
