This last weekend we traveled out to Jasper, AL (in the Birmingham, AL vicinity) and shot the fall wedding of Haley & Michael Graydon at Huckleberry Farms! The wedding turned out to be absolutely perfect, but let me tell you… everyone was a bit worried at first…
For those of you located in this southern region you know that we have all been hit with a lot of unusual rainfall lately. Michael and Haley planned to have their ceremony outside and then proceed to the barn for their reception. The only problem – it had been raining non-stop ALL week and the weather for Saturday had thunderstorms in the forecast. Everyone was hoping and praying for it to stop and as we woke up Saturday morning we peeked out of our hotel window to be dismayed with dark gray clouds and rain pouring down. We quickly turned on the weather channel to see if it was supposed to clear up at all later in the day, but no luck.
Loaded up with our gear and umbrellas we headed out to the farm to see how we could make do with the rain. Soon the girls stared arriving and we all set out to the owner’s house for the girls to get ready… Haley got in her dress, we headed upstairs to begin her photos… stepped out the door… and low and behold – the rain had stopped! We kid you not. The rain stopped as Hailey dressed and held off until the wedding was completely over! We were all completely blown away and so awed once again how God cares about the “little” things that are important to us, even though insignificant in the long run or grand scheme of things.
The weather turned out absolutely beautiful and we even got a little sun peeking through here and there! What a day!
Haley & Michael’s wedding was a fall themed wedding and there were so many cool details to shoot from pumpkins, to customized candy apples and you’ll just have to see for yourselves. Huckleberry Farms was such a picturesque place to shoot at and had so many different areas on the land that we could go to. The outside pavilion is perfect for outdoor ceremonies and their barn was a great place to have the reception. Enjoy the images!
Off to the reception!!!!
