European Inspired Wedding with Southern Touches

Photos and story by Ariel Cameron Photography  This Styled Shoot was inspired by the desire for the bride and groom to have their European dream wedding in a different way because of the pandemic many brides and grooms are facing today. StoneWood Farms in Tuscaloosa, AL, is a dream venue for couples in the Southern part of the US to experience the beauty of European-styled venues while remaining close to home. Kingsley (Kali) and William (Dean) were prom dates in high-school so being able to have both destination inspiration while remaining close to the home they love made the day even more special. The bride’s beauty in the Build-a-Bride dress is unmatched. From the grand entrance staircase to the small floral details, this timeless shoot will give hope to brides having to adjust their big days closer to home.

By: Rob Jinks of Rob Jink Photography This wasn’t what Eddie and Melissa expected their wedding day to look like.

Planning Through COVID-19: A Guide

In an already emotional and stressful process, this is so much more than you bargained for in planning your wedding. And you’re allowed to be upset about that.  But luckily, this is not the end of the story.   I recently heard someone describe this time as one of anxiety but also hope.  And how much do we need hope these days! In this period of “not quite the light at the end of the tunnel” and several weeks in, I think we also need the practical: how do we navigate the process today?  How do we approach decisions and plans from a healthy mindset today?  I called …
