A Grand Hotel Point Clear, AL Wedding

“From the first time that I talked to you on the phone, and everyday since then, my heart skips a beat!” These are the words that Sherish wrote for Taylor to read on their wedding day. As she read these words aloud for their wedding videographer to record, we all just about melted into tears. Little did we know Taylor also has a way with words. To Sherish he wrote, “From the moment when we told each other that we loved one another, I knew that one day this day would happen.” And these are just two sentences from the beautifully written letters these two shared with one another.

Sherish and Taylor are two of the kindest people you could possibly meet. This day was five years in the making and now they are finally husband and wife! The first time I talked to Sherish she told me that her mom was a florist. She shared that she remembered working a wedding with her mom at the Grand Hotel in Point Clear when she was a teenager. From that time on, she knew it was the place that she wanted to get married some day. When a bride tells me a story like this I feel so honored that they would entrust me with capturing a day that they have envisioned for so long.

I prayed so hard for Sherish and Taylor to have the wedding day of their dreams. Between the pandemic and a rough hurricane season, I was holding onto hope that this day would be everything they imagined. To say I was overjoyed for a rain free wedding day is an understatement. When you’re planning an outdoor ceremony on the grand lawn, rain is a possibility. Thankfully, we had clear skies and the most beautiful sunset for these two on their special day. Sherish got the day of her dreams and it was absolutely beautiful from beginning to end!

Sherish and Taylor, you two are an inspiration! May God bless you with many years of happiness together! Enjoy this preview of your special day!

I love taking photos of a bride and groom right before the first look. You can just see the excitement in their smiles!

I love this sweet moment between Sherish’s parents that my second photographer, Alexis, captured during the ceremony!

Sherish’s parents recently celebrated 50 years of marriage! They couldn’t have the party they planned due to the pandemic, so they shared an anniversary dance at Sherish and Taylor’s reception. There was not a dry eye in the room! Seriously, this family is the sweetest!
