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.

An Elopement & A Honeymoon

By: Tania Hossain I never thought there would be a perfect time to talk about elopement weddings. If it weren’t for a certain sadness that is carried around with the thoughts of six feet apart and social distancing, most of 2020 has become elopers dream come true.

On Celebrating Your Original Wedding Date

After working closely with a dozen couples whose 2020 wedding dates were postponed to 2021, I know how much sadness, confusion, and utter sense of loss our couples felt as they worked to schedule their wedding team for their new date. There was a reason our couples had picked their wedding date, so I asked a few of them what they did to celebrate their original date.  I picked a few …
