With a wedding party that leaves no one out (there are sixteen bridesmaids here!) this couple ties the knot in a fall ceremony in Alabama that’s full of classic details and great style, shown here in these images by Stephen DeVries. There’s no worry about getting to the church on time: everyone’s decked out well in advance and ready for their family photos, smiles at the ready. Massive floral bouquets show the colors of the season: carnations, bittersweet, and greenery tinged with golds and purples bring the splendor of autumn to the scene. The maids wear gray in all varieties of silver, layers, and sparkles; the groom looks elegant and cool in black tie. The church stair rail is garlanded in green, but the elegant soaring nave needs no excess ornament — it’s breathtaking in its own right.

Once the sacred vows are said and the bride and groom catch their breath, the party begins, with a tower of champagne glasses and a five-layer, gold-trimmed cake. A five-piece combo plays elegant music as the bride and groom cut the cake and toasts are made. The father of the bride has a tender moment with his best girl, while the groom’s mother cuts a neat figure on the dance floor. Then, it’s time to break out 1920s-era hats, complete with feathers, for extra fun as the guests get into the “jazzy” spirit of the evening. Finally, as their classic car awaits, the happy couple makes an exit through a shower of confetti, and with a kiss for luck, they’re off to their future together — an event, and a sendoff, to remember.
