A summertime wedding in Birmingham is a sight in demure white lace, smoky mauve gowns for the maids, and a groom with a tattoo in these images from Stephen DeVries. The girls have a pampering moment or two under the makeup artist’s skilled hands; the bridal gown, a wisp of satin with narrow lace shoulder straps, works well with fancy sandals. Poised and ready at the church are a guest book awaiting good wishes, programs in a handled basket, and memories of the Save the Date card, parties, and fêtes given for the bride. Her bouquet is simple white roses, while floral decorations for the church include Gloriosa daisies and roses in a pale peach/gold. The “reveal” is a sweet moment in the church, prior to pre-ceremony pictures; then, with family and friends in the red-carpeted nave, the two say their vows.

The groom, elegant in black bow tie, has fun posing with his bride — and taking care of her train; transported in a vintage car, the newlyweds arrive at a reception that greets guests with jars of penny candy and beverages, with the Mason jars given as guest favors to keep. Two cakes are cut: a multi-layered white bride’s confection and a chocolate groom’s cake in the shape of the state of Texas! Bedecked with hanging white lights, a local art gallery is a reception hall and ballroom par excellence; even young members of the guests and party love to trip the light fantastic. Finally, amid a shower of sparklers and waving American flags, the pair departs in their vintage car…into the evening and the first day of their married life together.
