Uptown Feel, Classic Details: A City Wedding by Stephen DeVries

If you love the feel of an “uptown” wedding, chances are this couple’s approach will be right up your alley: a Birmingham wedding in which the couple promenades down a city street, has both ceremony and reception in a brick-lined loft, and approaches the special day with a sense of humor, in these images from Stephen DeVries. The bride’s ensconced in a hotel room for her makeup, hair, and dressing, but she’s taking it easy; no stress here except making sure all those little buttons up the back of the gown are just-so. Her maids wear strapless blue — with shoes of each girl’s choosing, from green heels to silver sandals; she poses, a vision in cascades of lace, with them in the sunshine of an October day.

The groom’s dapper as can be in a blue bow tie with his checkered shirt; his men wear four-in-hand ties of the same blue. We glimpse the groom peering over a span of wineglasses, and then his men join him in an elegant library/wine cellar with polished wood counters and carved tables. The “reveal” is a moment of smiles in a room fully dressed for a party, and then, amid columns laced with light, the bride emerges with her father through a curtained door for her big moment. Guests type their wishes on an antique typewriter, then feast from a bride’s cake with a whimsical “couple” atop it, and a host of chocolate truffles. The happy couple cut a neat figure on the dance floor, and the guests join in…then shower them with confetti at evening’s end, as they smilingly begin their new life together.
