A March wedding in small-town Alabama brings together a close-knit family for celebrations in a tiny church and an in-town tavern in these wedding photos from Stephen DeVries. The bride has some pampering at home, getting her makeup done with veil and hair in place; her gown is a confection of sequins, beading, and sparkles on a halter-top bodice with a flowing, simple skirt. Matching jewels trim her pale-blue satin heels; she takes radiant pictures in the still-empty church. The colors of the day are green and white: they’re on wreaths that grace the church door, as well as in the bride’s and maid’s bouquets. The groom is in deep blue with a paisley tie and subtle green and white boutonniere, while his mother wears smoky lilac and black, and his future mother-in-law is in pale blue-gray.

At a historic church, the couple says their vows among a small gathering of family and friends — with very young wedding guests, indeed! As the bride and groom leave the chapel, they pause under a white arbor for a quick kiss…and then it’s time for a walk. Enjoying the glances they’re no doubt getting, they proceed down a cinder path, over a small footbridge, and right into town, on their way to the Main Street Tavern where the reception’s about to begin. The wedding cake is chocolate — and red; the beverage of choice is Coke, in original glass bottles, and the music is mellow and smooth from a small combo holding forth. After a flurry of hugs and farewells, the happy pair leave at sunset, in a shower of confetti, on their way to a happy new life together.
