Oliva & Russ’ wedding at Birmingham’s First United Methodist Church was just radiating with elegance. The church’s classic beams and beautiful stained glass windows and lanterns set the perfect mood. Olivia has such a grace to her movements and demeanor — I got some great shots where her sparkling personality shows through! She and Russ really glowed with joy that night. After some refreshing outdoor shots, we headed to The Reserve for the reception. There was no shortage of grace and grandeur as the bridal party celebrated on the dance floor. They dazzled with joy among rich hues of champagne, mahogany, and wine. I love the color choice of champagne for the dress and decor, a toast to their bubbly charm. What a great night! I’m so glad I had the pleasure of shooting this warm and friendly couple.
