Emily + Clay | Alabama wedding | Odenville, AL


Emily and Clay’s wedding was the most beautiful rustic Alabama wedding.

Their wedding was held at a venue called The Red Gates which had the most gorgeous barn.





It was a cloudy drizzly day but come time for their ceremony it cleared up the beautiful sun came shining it was amazing.

Emily’s nana made her dress from nothing but a picture in a pattern.

She sewed “love nanny” inside in blue and that was her something blue.

It was the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.

One of my favorite portraits from her wedding is the one of her nana helping her into the gown she made her for her wedding day.

When Emily’s mom saw her in her dress they instantly started crying and hugging each other.

Like, give me all the kleenex right now.



Emily did a first look with all her bridesmaids and they were stunned at how amazing she looked.

Emily wore the cutest sparkly Kate Spade keds and she said they were the most comfortable shoes ever.

I am so recommending them to all my brides.

Here they are y’all.


The ceremony was so sweet.

Emily walked outside behind the doorway with her bridesmaids help.

They held a drapery to keep her hidden.

It was such a cute idea.

Clay was ecstatic when he saw his bride walk down the aisle to him.



One of the best things I’ve seen is the wedding toast they did with their two beers.

The best part was Clay holding her dress for her.

Literally the best thing ever.

So legit.


Emily and her dad both cried during the father daughter dance.

The sweetest thing ever.

Everyone was crying.



The reception was so fun.

Everyone was dancing and jamming out.

When I snuck Emily and Clay them away for their portraits the sun peeked through and it was the most gorgeous warm sunshine.



Emily and Clay’s wedding was just full of fun, laughter, love, happy tears and all the best things you can hope for for your perfect day.
