We were extra excited to be able to photograph our much-loved veterinarian, Allen and his bride-to-be, Hoover librarian Amanda, for their engagement photos! We combined it into a family session, with Allen’s gorgeous daughters, Sophie and Madeline, and the family’s three dogs, Sam, Frodo and Charlie.

Allen owns at Galleria Animal Clinic, where he and his staff do an unreal job of taking care of our basset babies, Scarlett and Jenna. Y’all, our dogs go nuts to get out the car and run IN to Galleria Animal Clinic! Amanda is Hoover’s coolest librarian. The day began at the cool, industrial Sloss Furnaces and ended at Railroad Park in downtown Birmingham.

Congratulations to Allen and Amanda! We can’t wait to be a part of your big day this month!

B&A Warehouse Wedding Reception| Mariee Ami

Daniel Taylor Photography was delighted to photograph Staci and Jay’s wedding ceremony and wedding reception at B&A Warehouse because we knew it would be just as awesome as their engagement session.

The fun and elegant affair was filled with a fresh yellow and white color scheme, and lots of excited visitors from out of town. The couple held their wedding ceremony at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Hoover, Ala. and the reception was at one of our favorites, B&A Warehouse. We recommended our new friend Nellie Kirk Butler of Mariee Ami  wedding planning studio in Mountain Brook to help Staci plan the big day, and let’s just say Staci and her mother were more than thrilled with Nellie’s fabulous work.

Andy Hopper of KG Designs provided the gorgeous flowers, while Jan O’Donnell was responsible for the scrumptious cake. The inside of the cake had a yummy guava filling, which was a nod to Staci’s dad’s Cuban heritage. We always love those small personal touches that make a wedding even more special. Staci was stunning in her wedding gown by Bridals by Lori of Atlanta–you know, the Say Yes to the Dress TV show salon. Wedding band Azz Izz electrified the crowd, with the highlight of the night being when Jay’s dad jumped on stage doing the Dougie!

Guests had tons of fun in the photo booth at the reception by Total Entertainment, and at the end of the night, the newlyweds were whisked away in a glamorous car from Vintage Auto. We took photos at the Renaissance Ross Bridge Hotel for their beautiful after-session.

Congratulations Staci and Jay! We had so much fun celebrating with you and wish you all the best!

The Stables at Lake Martin Wedding Bridal Session: Ashton

Take it from Daniel Taylor Photography, there is nothing cuter than a bride in cowboy boots! Add a guitar, some fainting goats, and an incredible location, and you’ve got yourself one beautiful bridal session. We had an awesome day with Ashton, who is married her Southern hubby, Ryan, last night. The family is dedicated to fantastic, authentic DIY details, making the day super special, and definitely one to remember. We would put this in one of our top three weddings over eight years of doing this. We also loved the couple’s sweet, rustic engagement session from earlier this year, which was also near Lake Martin.

We are beyond appreciative to Emily Lewis and Linda Ingram, two awesome wedding folks from The Stables at Russell Crossroads, for recommending us to Ashton for their drop-dead gorgeous venue that has quickly become one of our favorites. We’re convinced you won’t find a prettier spot to get married than the Alexander City part of Lake Martin, and the service is second to none y’all! Take a behind-the-scenes look at our session with Ashton, complete with goats on the loose!

Birmingham Wedding at Carraway-Davie House: Sam & Adam

Just by the many excited facial expressions of beautiful bride Sam, you can tell how much fun this wedding was! Daniel Taylor Photography had a blast working with the gorgeous, loving couple on their big day.

Corretti Catering provided in-house service at the Carraway-Davie House, and the venue also had beautiful in-house floral service. Y’all know by now how much we harp on having super-fresh, gorgeous blooms and Catherine Wayman’s creations never disappoint. Another detail that we really loved was the pipe and drape with specialty lighting at the reception. Essential wedding elements like these can really elevate an already gorgeous venue and translate into some killer wedding photos.

At the couple’s reception, Sam and Adam surprised their guests by performing the final dance from their favorite movie, Dirty Dancing. They even did the lift y’all! So fun!

Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day Sam and Adam! We wish you a lifetime of happiness.
