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.
