Paige & Jeremy | The Venue in Fairhope, Alabama

Paige & Jeremy’s wedding took place in the picturesque Fairhope, Alabama on an almost rainy day in April. I don’t know what I love the most about Paige & Jeremy’s wedding day. I’m torn between their dog Cooper, her blue veil, the impromptu ice cream trip, and their surprise father daughter dance! Whatever you do… please look at the smile on their dog’s face during portraits. I can’t even! Right after portraits, Paige decided to dip into Mr. Gene’s Beans for ice cream before heading back to their reception! I love her spirit and how easy going she and Jeremy were the entire planning process and wedding day. Andddd she and her dad surprised their guests with an epic father daughter dance that was flawlessly executed. Later that evening, their dog Cooper joined them on the dance floor. I love that the venue was not only gorgeous but pup friendly so he was able to be a part of the day. The night ended with a sparkler exit and they left the next day to go to Italy! Talk about an amazing honeymoon.

A tip for future couples from their wedding is again about rain (Mobile and it’s bipolar weather). Check out her cute clear umbrellas that she bought when she saw the rainy forecast. If rain is in your forecast, choose clear ones for each bridal party member that will let light in. Also, if you’d still like outdoor portraits with the umbrellas but you’re worried about ruining your gown, pick up a clear shower curtain that you can stand on! Venues that have a porch or overhang are perfect for portraits too. Lastly, don’t let it bother you too much. Every rainy wedding I’ve photographed was still amazing!
