Wedding at Park Crest: Anniversary Flashback

Savannah and Dylan’s wedding at Park Crest Event Facility in Hoover, Ala., was a Southern dream come true. Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography, LLC,  can’t believe they are celebrating their first anniversary today, so we had to reminisce with some of our favorite photographs from their big day.

We couldn’t have been more excited to find out that Savannah was friends with another Hamilton, Ala, #Tayloredbride, Callie. The two share some fantastic Southern tastes. Both used some of the same wedding pro vendors, including florals by Kathy Miller. Savannah’s favors rich, vibrant colors, while Callie chose more classic neutrals for her elegant winter wedding. Both gorgeous, both beautifully created by Kathy, as always.

Did you notice how the floral colors and textures began with Savannah and Dylan’s wedding invitation, and was carried throughout their paper suite and wedding day florals? Remember, your wedding invitation sets the tone for your big day, so keeping a cohesive style really pulls together the look and feel.

Savannah’s stunning Anna Maier wedding gown is from the incredible White Dresses bridal boutique in Nashville. Her veil is by Toni Federici. Lovely hair and make-up by Madeline Hulsey and team. Cinematography by our friends at Holloway Productions. The delectable cakes were from Olexa’s of Mountain Brook, a regional favorite.

Thank you to Savannah’s family friend, Rita, for coordinating the event. And thank you to the entire event team for helping us create such unforgettable wedding images. We can’t wait for our next wedding at Park Crest.

Here’s to Savannah and Dylan, celebrating their anniversary in Cabo. Cheers! We wish you two a lifetime of blessings and happiness.

Wedding at Stone Bridge Farms in Cullman | I Do! I Do! Weddings

We were beyond excited when awesome associate planner Kendal of I Do! I Do! Wedding Planning asked us to be part of her wedding at Stone Bridge Farms in Cullman, with her adorable fiance-now-husband Jesse. #WelcometoPerrydise was a rustic chic stunner of a day, packed with refined elegance in a  beautiful, relaxed setting.

There’s nothing Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography, LLC appreciates more than when wedding pros we love choose us to be part of  their very own weddings. You may not know, but we photograph with both film and digital cameras. We couldn’t wait to share Kendal and Jesse’s film sneak peeks from our favorite photo artists at Indie Film Lab.

Kendal’s incredible gowns were from Bella’s in Hoover. These dresses never disappoint, in person or through the camera. Our clients consistently tell us how much they enjoy their Bella’s experience. One of our favorite wedding pros in Alabama, owner/planner Ashley of I Do! I Do!, worked her magic to keep everything fabulous and en pointe for the day. We always look forward to weddings with the I Do! I Do! team, which is how we first met Kendal.

Birmingham-based hair and makeup artist Melissa Moore Bogardus and her team dazzled as always, leaving all the ladies raving about their wedding day looks. Stone Bridge’s catering and serving team was positively fantastic. Thank you so much to the incredible ladies who made sure we were fed and so well taken care of during the reception! Stone Bridge Farms also created some beautiful florals, a palette of classic neutrals with a garden feel design. We’re still dreaming of the cake by Cakes by Kim (how does she create such a perfect red velvet?!). Salt & Paperie created the invitations and the Derek Sellers band kept the reception rockin’ with great music. We also enjoyed meeting and working with cinematographer Channing Brodie. What a terrific team all around.

Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Perry, for the honor of being part of your wonderful wedding. We love y’all!

Engagement at Morgan Creek Winery: Sneak Peek

Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography had such a blast photographing Kendal and Jesse during their engagement at Morgan Creek Winery in Harpersville, Ala.

Jesse is an EMT/firefighter and Kendal is an associate wedding planner with I Do, I Do! Wedding Planning in Birmingham. Needless to say, with all the great photographers she’s worked with, we are over the moon to be part of their big day. We’ve had the pleasure of working side-by-side with Kendal, and she and the entire I Do, I Do! team are just terrific. Have we mentioned lately how much brides needs planners and coordinators? They are one of the very best investments you can make in your wedding.

We couldn’t think of a more romantic location for these two than an engagement at Morgan Creek Winery. The vineyard leaves are just starting to change colors, but no matter what time of year, it’s always a stunning place to visit. We’re so appreciative of the entire Morgan Creek team for hosting us!

Special thanks also to the oh-so-talented Melissa Moore Bogardus for Kendal’s gorgeous hair and make-up. If you’re looking for tips on how to dress for your engagement photos, take your cues from Kendal and Jesse. We strategized over wardrobe for several days, making sure we had great colors for the site, as well as a special, romantic feel that translated well into the camera. We also wanted to make sure their choices went together, but weren’t too matchy matchy. We think they nailed it, y’all!

Thank you, Kendal and Jesse, for getting us, and for inviting us be part of such a special chapter in your lives.

Are you engaged? We’d love to talk with you about your wedding plans and how we can help bring your vision for photography to life. Contact us at 205.478.8019 or info@danieltaylorphoto.com.

CMT reality stars Kelsey and Collin wed

CMT reality stars Kelsey and Collin wed in an intimate ceremony in Helena, Ala., on Labor Day, Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography couldn’t wait to share a sneak peek of their beautiful day.

If somehow you missed how this courtship unfolded, you can catch up on the episodes that led them to the alter by clicking here.

For any of y’all who don’t know them personally, Kelsey and Collin are as down-to-earth and fun as you saw on the show. We were so excited and honored, when, out of all the great photographers they know and have worked with, they chose Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography to capture their special day. We had an absolute blast with these two.

The wedding day started in one of the most unique ways we’ve ever experienced, a sunrise first look on a hilltop meadow. The setting?  Third-generation family owned Griffin Farms. The mid-morning outdoor ceremony was brimming with plenty of gorgeous florals in blushes, pinks, creams and whites to accent the fairytale setting.

Guests then celebrated the nuptials with brunch and they toasted with a Bloody Mary and mimosa drink stations before the couple drove off in a sleek black Maserati.

We want to thank this incredible couple and all the terrific vendors who made the day so memorable, including florist Jill Montgomery and jeweler Nancy & Co. And we have to give a very special thanks to one of our favorite Birmingham wedding pros, hair and make-up artist Brittney of The Look by Brittney Shelton. She’s one of the very best on the Alabama wedding scene. As always, she created an incredible wedding day look for her dear friend Kelsey.

Check back with us soon for more from this fabulous wedding.

BridgeStreet Gallery and Loft wedding

We here at Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography were so excited to photograph Shera and Raimy’s winter BridgeStreet Gallery and Loft wedding in gorgeous downtown Birmingham, Ala. It was such an honor to get the call from Shera’s mom, Cathy. She booked us just a few days after we photographed the summer wedding of Shera’s brother, Levi, and his wife, Megan.

Shera and Raimy wanted an intimate, romantic, city-chic wedding. They chose details that reflected their creative sides, their Jewish faith, love of family and their appreciation of classic design elements. Shera got dressed at the always-gorgeous Grand Bohemian Hotel in Mountain Brook. The Kessler hotel has quickly become one of our new favorite places for pre-wedding getting ready. Some of our favorite highlights of the day were Shera’s old Hollywood glamour-inspired hair and make-up, the historic feel of the BridgeStreet architecture, and the vintage getaway car from Coats Classic Cars. We were also impressed to find out these two love birds were featured in the New York Times engagements, which if you know anything about weddings, is no easy feat.

Thanks to a great team of vendors who helped make the day such a pleasure, including make-up artist Angela King, hair artist Todd CargoDeep South Rabbi Barry Altmark, Dorothy McDaniel’s Flower Market, JAMM Entertainment and Yellow Bicycle Catering.
