One of my favorite things about being a West Georgia based wedding photographer is that I can easily serve both Atlanta and Eastern Alabama couples. Not to mention, being located between the two also combines my love for traveling and photographing weddings! I’ve absolutely loved getting to be a part of more and more Alabama weddings over the past year. Meanwhile, with weddings as darling as Katalin and EJ’s big day, I can’t wait to be a part of even more this year. These two love birds tied the knot in a rustic southern Applewood Farm Wedding this past fall. If boots and bowties make your heart sing, you’re going to swoon over their gorgeous wedding gallery on the blog today!
I absolutely love southern weddings. There’s just something about a sweet couple’s love and sweet tea that can make my heart melt. As you can imagine, the south has your fair share of barn and farm venues to choose from. However, Applewood Farm is a rare gem in Pell City, Alabama. With over 80 acres of rolling hills, ponds and creeks, and an abundance of wild life, it’s a sight to see. It’s a gorgeous rustic barn wedding venue that offers brides the peace and quiet of a southern farm wedding just 30 minutes outside all of the the hustle and bustle of Birmingham. Meanwhile, the venue’s chandelier barn gives the perfect balance between rustic and elegance. It really is the perfect backdrop to any southern belle’s dream wedding day.
When you think of southern weddings in the fall, you may also think of gorgeous lace gowns, cowboy boots, and sunflowers. In fact, Katalin and EJ’s southern rustic wedding was a beautiful mix of all three underneath the twinkling lights of Applewood Farm’s barn. Even though their wedding took place in the afternoon, I am so glad that I was able to capture these two love birds in some sunset portraits towards the end of their reception. I couldn’t get enough of their sunset portraits with that vintage sofa. (Talk about dreamy!) Katalin and EJ’s wedding day had so much love that overflowed from them, their families, and their friends. It was truly unforgettable.
Katalin and EJ, I am so honored to have been a part of your truly magical wedding day. You are the sweetest couple in the world, and it was such a pleasure getting to work with you and walk alongside you on your wedding day. I absolutely loved getting to capture your love story and the start of your forever together, and I hope these photographs are something that the two of you can look back on and cherish for your lifetime to come. I can only hope to have more couples that radiate as much love and joy as you do, and I wish you all the happiness and well wishes in the world as Mr. and Mrs!
