You can meet the love of your life anywhere, anytime — as evidenced by this couple, who met on a mission trip and came home to the South to be married in a spring wedding in Birmingham, as pictured here in this collection from Stephen DeVries. The bride is a vision in white lace, especially posing against an exuberant flowering bush in the sunshine; white roses, jeweled shoes, and a wisp of a veil create a gossamer image well in keeping with mild breezes and blue skies. Maids wear short, simple blue satin dresses in identical hue but distinct styles to flatter each girl’s figure and taste — and blue is one of the signature colors, continuing on the cover of a photo album and woven into the wreath on the church door.

Yellow’s another key hue — in a tiny jonquil bud with the calla lilies trimming the lapels of the men’s classic white-tie tuxes. The bride takes time for a pose with junior attendants, then a prayer with the pastor, before her father walks her up the aisle to an arbor under which the couple says their vows. Then, it’s outdoors for some fresh-from-the-ceremony putting on the golf course — complete with saddle shoes! Cakes are blue/white/yellow (bride’s) and red/white (groom’s) — his with a miniature bat and ball, plus a nest of “crackerjack.” Dancing is lively and fun, with friends snapping photos — even the smallest guests get into the act. Finally, after everyone’s had their cake and wished the couple happiness forever, the newlyweds depart in a shower of bubbles, off to find their future together.
