Gorgeous New Years Eve Wedding in Orange Beach, AL

On the way to Maritza & Grant’s wedding, I kept glancing at the sky and wondering how the day would unfold. It was windy, rainy, and overcast and the forecast didn’t show much change. Luckily for me, Maritza’s home had large windows and natural light which made her getting ready images beautiful despite the conditions. I highly recommend that brides have a getting ready space full of natural light for this reason!

The ceremony took place at St. Margaret’s of Scotland in Foley and it was amazing! Grant’s reaction to seeing Maritza was one of the sweetest moments of the day! After the ceremony, we had limited time to do the portraits and it began to POUR in the middle of the couple portraits. They were literally showered in good luck as we all sprinted to cover. I let Maritza know that we could always get back into her gown on a pretty day after the wedding for more couple portraits and we did that this week! You’ll notice the different location and lighting but I’m so glad she got the couple portraits she deserved at Bragg Mitchell Mansion! Here’s a few highlights of this gorgeous wedding day!
