Picturing His Own Brother’s Wedding: Alabama Wedding by Stephen DeVries

July in Auburn, Alabama, pretty much guarantees warm weather; that’s probably why this bride’s wearing blue sandals over bare feet, as pictured here by Stephen DeVries. The day begins in the bride’s room at church, where the girls are getting hair done, giggling over high heels, and helping the bride into her strapless gown and gossamer veil. The historic church is dressed to the nines for the occasion — floral garlands on the polished wood doors, blooming shrubs around the entrance. Flowers for the maids, who are a sight in ice-blue, are baby pink and white; the bride carries white roses and lilies — and beams in a pose with her mother, resplendent in sea-blue satin. The groom and his men are dapper in black suiting; his attendants are in sky-blue vests and ties, while his are pure white.

With a white rose on his lapel, the groom goes to find his bride in their cute “reveal”…holding hands around a door! At last, all is ready, and the vows are said. The happy couple poses for some garden photos, then leads the way to a reception with a towering rose-trimmed cake and a groom’s “cake” made up of tiered decorated cookies. Once the dancing begins, everyone gets into the act — especially once the glow sticks come out and everyone’s wearing one (or more). A few red “haloes” later, a pose with the photographer (who happens to be the brother of the groom!), and the happy newlyweds are sent on their way, waving as they drive into their future together.
