When most brides would have panicked at a weather forecast of a 90-percent chance of rain and tornado warnings, Katie was busy going out to buy pink polka-dotted rain boots….

When she called me the day before the wedding, she was as calm as I’ve ever heard a bride that close to the big day. Her only question was:

“Do you guys have an umbrella?” :-)

So even though her and Stephen’s garden wedding and reception were forced inside by some REALLY ugly weather, this awesome couple made the most of their day … and in turn, there day was AMAZING from beginning to end.

She looked drop-dead gorgeous in her wedding gown, and I think Stephen and I both noted more than once that he was a very lucky man! Katie and Brad’s wedding a very spring feel to it, with a HUGE splash of color in the form of some pink, orange, and white details. It was a perfect mixed of a comfortable southern style, paired with some splashes of glam here and there. (Case in point … see Katie’s awesome hair piece and cake!)

The wedding and reception were both held at Birmingham Botanical Gardens, with Katie and Stephen bringing in an all-star cast of vendors to make the day memorable! The event was catered by All Around Town Catering, with the beautiful cake designed by Jan from DreamCakes.

Katie and Stephen, thank you so much for having us along for the big day. We had an amazing time with you guys, and couldn’t wait to show of some of our favorites from your gorgeous wedding!
