Anne & Jimmy

A little sneak peak at what’s to come… Just a few pictures that tell the story of this beautiful day, how Jimmy and Anne are now husband and wife. They are so much in love and have a bright future ahead of them, both physicians about to start their carriers.
There had been rumors of possible storms, but the skies cleared up and it was a perfect day.
The ceremony was held in the sanctuary of Christ Church, and the reception was on the grounds of Bay Moorrings, property of DeeDee Reilly, a dear friend of the family’s.
The talented Debbie Turner from Celebrations, dressed up the majestic oaks, lights were strategically placed on the trees to create a feerique (sorry I had to use the french word, the english translation is magical, but it doesn’t describe it as well) ambiance.

Scattered on the lawn were the buffet tables adorned with magnificent bouquets, and the most delicious food, a fusion of low country and Southern cuisine, from Nancy Silivos
And I had with me Dorene Nash, a super creative Mobile based photographer, without whom I wouldn’t even consider covering a wedding.
On with the images, first some details in the parish hall, getting ready.

Anne was so elegant and classy. Look at the delicate earrings, they designed them.



They opted to meet before the ceremony,

Anne has many friends and wouldn’t leave anyone out, so there were 7 bridesmaids in the pretty grey dresses and 9 honorary bridesmaids in the cute black dresses.

Jimmy, too has many friends…

A few minutes before walking down the aisle, the girls are just chatting and having a good time, they would make a nice spread inside a bridal magazine.

The guys are just as relaxed,

I can’t believe I forgot to mention this funny little detail: while photographing the cutting of the cake scene, Dorene’s pants caught on fire! The steps leading to the covered porch, where the beautiful and out-of-this-world delicious cakes throned, were lit by many little candles. Dorene, eyes glued to her view finder, busy recording the moment, didn’t notice how close she was to the edge and the flame… and next thing her pants are on fire… that is dedication to your job!

The day was extra special as it was also Anne’s parents’ anniversary, and this happy group was their wedding party,

The band, Power House (in Mobile, AL) had everyone on the dance floor, and then on stage,

Leaving under a rain of flower petals,

    Simply stunning, the B+G will be over the moon with these, I am so jealous of the light you guys have over there, here is it is just dull :-( - can see a little bit of the 'V' influences coming out and it looks good, the great thing is you put into practice what you have learned - well done

    Great job Arielle. I second the awesome processing! I love the dress in he first group of photos. The color and light behind the dress is incredible and gives it a floating in air feel.

    It's official...your awesome! : - ) I especially loved the images you displayed in black in white (details, of the couple and the group of the couple dancing at the reception). Great use of light and off camera strobes. The last shot of the "rain of flower petals" is well planned and wonderfully executed. Your clients should be extremely happy with your work. Congrats Arielle!

I hope that you had a fun time during the wedding, these pictures are just what I need right now to serve as a little reminder!! Thank you so much for everything!

    These photograghs are exquisite with an element of sophistication that you just don't find with the average photogragher! You definitely have an eye for what works, not to mention the incredible training to which you have availed yourself! Pensacola is fortunate to have you here and I wish you the best as you continue to grow as a premier photogragher.
