Anne Preston+Garrett | Montgomery, AL Wedding
"Each pear was hand picked by Garrett and me from the pear tree my grandfather had planted many years ago at our home (my mother's childhood home). Each and every one brought back a special memory of him."
"My something blue was a special hankie given to me by my Chi Omega chapter upon graduation, and my something old was a special brooch that belonged to my great grandmother. My something borrowed was my veil which was worn by my mother in her wedding."
"The leopard trim and rhinestones were incorporated in memory of my grandmother. She was a sassy leopard lady."
"No one can come between a daddy and his girl. Seeing my dad for the first time was emotional. Dad had clearly defined himself by his cuff links which stated 'Father of the Bride' and 'I loved her first.'"
"As a gift, I gave each bridesmaid a special vintage bracelet that best suited their personality. Vintage and personal touches were a special part of our wedding day."
"Normally the forecast on any special day for the Speed family is rain. The sun beaming in was a blessing. We prayed for no rain, and our day turned out to be a bright beginning for our future together."
"As a family, we all passed our crash course in ballroom dancing and had a blast. Garrett wanted to go out with a big bang as he would now forever be a part of a dancing family."
"National Dance Day just happened to fall on our wedding day. It could not have been more perfect. When the mother of the bride own's a dance studio, you get flash mobbed by lots of cute dancers of all ages who kept the dance floor going!"
"Releasing the balloons was the final touch! As a little girl, I loved to release balloons to my Big Daddy after he passed away, so doing this with Garrett meant a lot. The vintage car exit and balloon release were in his memory. Although he would have rather seen us exit in a vintage Chevy, he would be thrilled we left in a classic vintage ride."
"Our wedding was truly the most incredible day of our lives. It certainly was memorable and full of personal touches that meant lots to our family. We are thankful for a spiritual day which celebrated the start of our future together. Many thanks to our family and friends who surrounded us with unconditional love on our big day! We are thankful for these amazing photographs done by Jackie and Luke that will bring back memories each time we view them! You could not have captured the day any better! We cannot thank you enough."
