We strongly believe that there is nothing like a June wedding in the South. Something about that time of year is just magical for an outdoor wedding. Anslee and Jacob’s June wedding at Shoal Creek was nothing short of perfection. No detail was overlooked and the photos by Sweet Julep Photography captured just how amazing this day truly was! Meet our beautiful bride, Anslee and her dashing groom, Jacob.
Anslee and Jacob dated for eight years before finally tying the knot. They were high school sweethearts and went to Montevallo together. We think some of the sweetest love stories are from high school sweethearts. Jacob popped the question at Shoal Creek, so it made perfect sense for them to have their wedding there as well. As we mentioned earlier, no detail went untouched. From the beautiful stationery by Empress to the stunning accessories Anslee wore, every little thing about this wedding was flawless. One of our favorite small detail was the awesome stamps used on the invitation suites – we love a custom monogram and seeing them used even on the stamps gives us heart eyes! It really is ALL about the details.
Anslee prepared for her big day with hair and makeup by Rawwbeauty. We loved the touch of gold in Anslee’s hairpiece that tied in with her beautiful gold theme. Our bride stunned in her gorgeous dress from the White Room and Mr. Burch dressed our groom to the nines!
How stunning was our sweet Anslee?
Anslee had a first look with her bridesmaids (which we always recommend!). Their reactions were priceless! We love watching bridesmaids see their beautiful friend as a bride for the very first time.
Next, Anslee went off to meet her groom for their first look. With a picture perfect setting on the golf course, it was such a great first look! One of our favorite parts of a wedding day is when a groom sees his bride for the first time. These two are such a fun couple and they kept us laughing the whole day!
It was important to Anslee to have a few photos done at her parents house. We transferred the wedding party there by golf cart (which was quite an adventure!) for some lovely photos. The wedding party was as gorgeous as they were fun! We LOVED everything about the gorgeous gold dresses paired with the blue tuxes.
Anslee and Jacob wanted to have an elegant wedding but definitely focused on making their guests feel welcome and comfortable. They kicked off the ceremony with a stunning mirror program and a fun ‘bubbly bar’ to welcome their guests to their wedding. It was such a great way to set the tone for all the fun that was to come. Their ceremony was perfect! The weather was absolutely amazing. With the highs in the low 80’s and not a drop of rain in sight for the whole day, the weather seriously couldn’t have been more perfect.
Now on to the stunning tented reception! We worked closely with Anslee and her parents on the design of this wedding. Anslee said she didn’t realize how much she loved sky blue and gold until she started planning her wedding. We love how her vision came to life! An elegant, but relaxed environment invited guests to enjoy delicious food and drinks and party all night long with the amazing Downtown Band.
The bar fronts and bar backdrop by KG Designs were stunning and brought the element of surprise that Anslee loved. We loved seeing her monogram used again on these custom gold bars.
Anslee was really excited about her cake and worked with Jan O’Donnell to design one of the biggest cakes we’ve ever seen in person. Not only was it breathtaking, but it was seven layers of delicious red velvet gorgeousness! KG Designs accented the cake with stunning florals to make it a truly, showstopping design.
The most important thing to Anslee and Jacob was that they have a super fun party. The Downtown Band made that happen and their guests were on the dancefloor all night long, after the first dance of course. It was one of the most fun receptions we’ve seen!
Thank you so much to Anslee and Jacob for letting Becky’s Brides be a part of your big day! Also, thank you to the dream team of vendors who worked along side of us and made this wedding come together perfectly! Anslee and Jacob, we wish you the very best! Congratulations!
