McWane Center Wedding Reception

McWane Center Wedding Reception

Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography was so tickled to learn that Eunice and Garrett would have a McWane Center wedding reception in Birmingham. We had no clue the incredible science center also hosted wedding events until planner Anita Kanellis of AK Brides suggested the fun idea.

The reception, which capped off two weekends in New York and Birmingham with three celebrations, blended wedding traditions that nodded to Eunice’s Vietnamese family and Garrett’s Jewish heritage. That’s something we always love to see, y’all. The fresh spring yellow was a perfect wedding color choice repeated beautifully in the lighting, florals and other details.

Chanel, the special events coordinator at McWane Science Center, couldn’t have been more terrific to work with, and a vendor team of some of our favorite friends made for a spectacular night. Gorgeous florals were from the always-creative HotHouse Design Studio, lighting and draping by Design Productions, LLC. The yellow ombre cake was by Gia’s and the dreamy linens were from Decor to Adore.  Every moment was captured on video by Main Street Productions. Music was by DJ JJ of Fonix Entertainment in Atlanta.

We wish the adorable couple a lifetime of happiness.

Indian Wedding at the Birmingham Marriott

Indian Wedding at the Birmingham Marriott

An Indian wedding at the Birmingham Marriott is always fantastic and Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography, LLC is always pumped to be part of one, y’all. Shonika and Vaibhav had a swoon-worthy wedding reception at the Birmingham Marriott this month and we couldn’t have had more fun photographing it. Kelli also loves every reason to rock a traditional salwar kameez outfit of silky pants, a tunic and a dupata scarf, so she was extra tickled about this one.

Beautiful bride Shonika, who is from Fiji,  and dashing Vaibhav, who is from The ‘Ham,  are such an adorable and playful couple. They met and fell in love in California, where he works in Silicon Valley and she is a lighting analyst.  Guest were cheering in delight as they re-enacted their meeting, dating and love story in some pretty awesome extensively choreographed dance segments. We loved getting to know them and their precious, gracious families. These two are thoroughly modern but have a genuine love and respect for classic Indian culture that made for a killer night of wedding photographs.

We’ve gotta tell you, the Birmingham Marriott wedding and event team is one of the best in the city and dishes up special expertise when it come to those big, fabulous Indian weddings, Sikh, Hindu, Punjabi — you name it, they can help make it happen. Lauren and her team left no detail unattended to during the course of the night and couldn’t have made our job easier. Taj India restaurant catered the mouth-watering wedding feast. Y’all know how we adore Indian food! DJ Jaz of Atlanta knocked it out of the park with Bollywood-worthy event lighting and music that  thrilled the guests — and the photographers — for hours.

We wish this couple decades of happiness that are as joyous as your wedding reception.

Wedding at Woodrow Hall on Borrowed and Blue Blog

Wedding at Woodrow HallKelli + Daniel Taylor Photography, LLC is so stoked to see Ryan and Brent’s classic Southern wedding at Woodrow Hall in Birmingham, Ala.,  featured on the always-fantastic Borrowed & Blue blog. The B&B article highlights some of Birmingham’s best downtown wedding venues and we’re honored to have our work showcased among so many other great wedding professionals. Woodrow Hall is a Birmingham treasure and we always love working with WH’s event manager Brittany. The exposed brick is one of our favorite architectural features in this lovely historic building. Isn’t it fantastic?

The buttery off-white and pastel florals are by the talented team at HotHouse Design Studio and lovely linens and chair covers are from our new friends at Decor to  Adore. The end result was a timeless, refined elegance that reminded us of Charleston graciousness.

Ryan’s hair and make-up were by  the incredible Melissa Moore Bogardus and her wedding gown was from Bella Couture in Mt Laurel.

Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography wedding photos for bridal sessions are some of the best photo sessions we do. We were incredibly excited to take a road trip to photograph Callie’s wedding bridal portraits in Fort Payne, Ala. We can finally show you because these two are getting married, well, right about now at Birmingham’s incredible Southside Baptist Church, with a reception at The Club — always fabulous. Have we mentioned lately how much we love our jobs as wedding photographers in Birmingham, y’all?

We couldn’t have had a more gorgeous bridal session location than the family home of her fiancé, Dr. Jon. Jon’s mom and dad, Bonnie and Blake, hosted us, moved furniture, let us roll up rugs — you name it. Bonnie even made sure we had a fantastic, bridal shower-worthy selection of hors d’oeuvres and cider throughout the day.

Callie’s wonderful mom, Sheilah, and grandmother, MomMom, came along and we had the whole family helping out with reflectors, straightening the dress, you name it. They were they top-notch photo assistants. It was a terrific afternoon, y’all, one of the many reasons we love what we do…

By the way, that amazing bedroom suite is a hand-carved antique set from Vienna and showcases scenes from the original family’s favorite hobbies and artistic pursuits. Absolutely incredible.

We just love Callie’s dress, a Casablanca design, from Bella’s Bridal and her terrific Jimmy Choo wedding shoes. Her bridal bouquet was done by Birmingham, Ala. florist Kathy Miller.

A big thank you to Cathy Alexander for recommending us. She’s the ultra-cool mom of groom Jason, of one of our favorite couples, Jason and Mallory.
