Love chevrons? Bright colors? An architecture or a design buff? You’ll fit right in to this lovely wedding scene, as you’ll see in these images from Stephen DeVries of a Birmingham, Alabama, couple’s special day. The bride has two dresses set aside; one’s a short slip of lace with a lime-green sash (note the matching green shoes with nifty checkered bows!), while the other is a more classic confection of bridal white with a tea-dyed sash. Her bouquet? Yellows, whites, and oranges — bound with yellow chevrons (a recurring motif). Her maids? Their variegated dresses of green and yellow bring to mind a bouquet of daffodils, a nod to the springtime season. The bride poses on the steps of an architectural firm — and is headed toward a brick church with its own classic architecture.

Her groom is in elegant black suiting, as are all the men in the party; he wears a pale gray tie, while the rest of his men sport yellow — and they’re all dapper in yellow-and-gray argyle socks! This is a fun-loving pair who mug for the camera before their ceremony — although they’re serious when it comes time to say those vows. Reception guests see yellow and gray/blue in chevrons on the bride’s cake — and argyle on the groom’s; they’re offered streamers of those colors to send off the happy pair. Against the backdrop of an art gallery, the cake is cut, the dancing is lively, and the bride is all giggles as her groom goes for the garter. Finally, the streamers come out, the couple leaves hand-in-hand, and a perfect spring wedding day becomes the stuff of memories.
