“Happy the bride the sun shines on” is the old expression, and for at least part of the day, the sun shone brightly on this bride and groom in this Auburn, Alabama wedding, pictured by Stephen DeVries. The bride and her maids take the time to get their hairdos just-so — even as a photographer snaps candids and shows up in the mirror! The delicate floral crown she has to hold her veil suits a simple cascade of waves, and her strapless gown is a swirl of elegance in lace. White flowers complement the bride and her maids, who look fetching in blue satin and high silver heels. The outdoor setting for the group shots is lovely — swaying trees, statuary, flowers, and even a pergola where the happy couple have their big “reveal.”

Everyone passes the time before the ceremony in unique ways: the men clown around with the groom, while the maids — and bride! — play a card game. Soon, however, they’re processing back down the aisle of the church, on their way to a cozy house reception. Against the backdrop of a stately Southern home, the guests enjoy fruit and cheese, finger foods, and cakes — one of which, of course, bears the emblem of Auburn University. After a few moments in private, the happy couple circulates through the corridors; bridesmaids rest and munch on the bottom steps of the stairway. Then, it’s time for a few dances and many hugs and kisses and good wishes, before at last the sparklers are lighted and everyone sees the newlyweds off…to a happy future together.
