Small-town weddings convey their own charm, and this May wedding in Mooresville, Alabama, is no exception — a casual, easy-going day captured here in images from Stephen DeVries. Down a rustic Lauderdale Street, past a friendly horse, down a wooded path…we arrive at the bride’s home, where she’s being pampered and primped over. The gown hangs ready, with its blue-green shrug; the Save the Date card promises treats to come. The groom, meanwhile, is getting his men together and getting his flower pinned on by Mom; he wears gray suiting with a green tie, and his men wear plaid ties in a mellow blue-green. The maids wear variegated dresses in the aqua-to-lime family, while the bride shows off pretty feet in open-toed blue heels. The groom? He’s in tennis shoes.

Down the garden path the party goes, creeping into the tiny church and witnessing the vows. The bride and groom pause for a few moments, reveling in their new status; then they lead the guests to where a spring-green colored milkshake mixer awaits with the shake menu on a chalkboard. Beneath strings of lights on an outdoor dance floor, the newlyweds show off their dance moves. Then, they proceed to the ceremonial cake-cutting…only it’s not a shared cake, but a milkshake glass with two straws. The bride slips away just long enough to change into a lace-tiered dress and kicky boots before tossing her bouquet into the crowd. Then, with the garter caught as well, the happy couple is shown on their way into the limousine — and off into their brand-new life together.
