Elegant Birmingham Wedding

Allie and Dylan's downtown Birmingham wedding was so elegant and classic. From Allie's simple pearl necklace, to the antique pocket watch Dylan carried with him, every detail was thoughtfully curated. These two were the epitome of class on their wedding day. They made everyone, including their vendors, feel so welcome. Their reception at the historic downtown B&A Warehouse was beautifully executed, and was the perfect juxtaposition between old and new.

They introduced themselves and found themselves instantly bonding over their love of brisket nachos and old fashions.
