Lake Martin Wedding: Children’s Harbor Lighthouse-Ridge Club

Daniel Taylor Photography was so, so stoked to photograph Paige and Brent’s Lake Martin wedding at Children’s Harbor lighthouse and wedding reception at The Ridge Club, also at Lake Martin, in Alexander City and Auburn. The wedding sneak peek debuted on the cover of Over the Mountain Journal newspaper, whose editor is my former Birmingham News colleague, the awesome Laura McAlister.
We knew from the minute we met Paige’s mom, Vicki — the creative mind behind the wedding, that this would be one to remember. The upscale DIY online shopping paradise Etsy was the source of many of the day’s awesome details, including great paper products and gorgeous vintage nature details. Vicki teamed up with wedding planner Meghan Cease of M. Elizabeth Events for a all-out gorgeous affair, with floral design by the inimitable Mandy Majerik of Hothouse Design Studio, Catering was in the good hands of our friends at Kathy G. and Co., and Barb’s Cakes delighted the whole crowd, including these photographers.
Paige’s jaw-dropping wedding gown was from designer Amsale, from The White Room bridal salon in Cahaba Heights and her hair was the work of Hair by Jessica Lazarus. I have never seen guests clamor over a dress like they did this one. Everyone came up to the bride and wanted to touch the skirt, thinking it would feel like chenille, but it felt like sculpted silk. It was also worn by TV character Sarah on the show Brothers and Sisters during May’s wedding episode. Frankly, I think Paige wore it better!
You can also take a look at Paige and Brent’s exquisite wedding rehearsal dinner at SpringHouse Restaurant at Lake Martin, which was simply incredible.
