Are you a country girl longing for a farm wedding? Then you’ll enjoy this album of photos against the backdrop of a family farm in Livingston, Alabama, as presented by Stephen DeVries. The bride takes some time for a sweet up-do and some tendrils; her dress is a confection of feathery white lace, and her maids are dressed in a variety of gowns in pale mauve, purple, and cream. Pinning her veil to the back of her curls, the bride shows off a bouquet that looks fresh-gathered from the garden and trailing wide gold ribbons; in the May sunlight, her smile is as radiant as the sky. An arbor is set up for the outdoor ceremony, marked with fence posts topped with wild flowers; wedding programs are tucked into a basket and edged with more gold ribbon.

The groom’s tan suiting looks fresh and cool; he and his men wear pale blue-gray ties. The ring bearer doesn’t need a tie — he’s already carrying precious cargo — and the flower girl is a tiny vision in white chiffon. Once the vows are said, family pictures are taken on the hillside, and then the party makes its way up the hill to a tented pavilion for the celebration. As the sun sets, the dancing begins — and the bride and groom cut a neat figure on the wood dance floor. Amid feasting, cake cutting, and colored lights, the party is full of laughter and more than a few hijinks. But at last, as the stars come out, the music softens, the family wraps the newlyweds in a hug, and the sky fills with fireworks…a spectacular ending to a spring wedding day.
