The groom has “Elvis” sideburns — and everybody has fake moustaches for some giggly pictures — in this lighthearted wedding in Opelika, Alabama, as pictured by Stephen DeVries. The setting is gorgeous: a down-home feeling of a family farm, complete with pumpkins, haystacks, baskets of mums, and the warmth of October sunshine as the glorious day begins. And yes, the colors echo tones of autumn — and Auburn — as well: orange and blue pompoms await use later, while gowns and flowers are resplendent in both those hues. The maids are pretty, indeed, in short, deep blue dresses; the groom and his men wear small orange lily boutonnieres. The bride’s strapless gown is a confection of lacy appliquéd roses and a layered chiffon train; she and her maids pose on a balcony in their finery…

…and then the moustaches come out. First the maids put them on, each girl posing for her close-up. Then the mothers…and then the groom and his men, all captured for posterity in their matching “lip gear.” Once the bride regains her dignity, a simple outdoor ceremony follows in an elegant garden setting, enhanced by “honey” favors for the guests and orange-beribboned lanterns. The reception features a white cake with trailing orange “roses”…and gummy worms in buckets of “dirt” as a chocolate treat! After goodies, the dancing begins, with both groom and bride dancing with pint-sized guests. With bouquet and garter tossed, the happy recipients of those items pose together with knowing smiles…and then it’s time to bid the newlyweds goodbye, cheered on by pompom-waving guests into their new life together.
