Did you ride a school bus as a kid? We’ll bet it probably wasn’t nearly as sharp as the groom’s “party bus” in this Birmingham wedding, as pictured by Stephen DeVries. On her May wedding day, the bride gets a special updo, complete with flower trim; silver slippers await her toes, while bread awaits the guests at church. The groom and his men are dashing in gray suiting with simple cream-colored rose boutonnieres; the bride, resplendent in a long veil, carries some of those cream roses as well as pink and palest lavender purple in her bouquet. The maids line up in dresses of that same lavender; they pause with the bride and other women at the church for a heartfelt moment of prayer behind the scenes.

After the exchange of vows, the newlyweds and their party climb aboard that school bus — curtained and decorated on the inside with spiffy blue striped upholstery! White-covered tables complement the tall cake trimmed with rose, pink, and fuchsia flowers; a tender figurine portrays the couple’s bond. Guest favors are honey pots (including wood stirrers) trimmed with banners saying “Meant to Bee”; bottled Cokes, complete with striped straws, rest on ice. As a special offering, the bride and groom perform a song together for their mothers, giving everyone a poignant moment. Then, after a generous serving of cake, a few dances, and lots of laughter, they’re tucked safely in their “getaway car” and off into their future…with lovely spring wedding memories to last forever.
