Catherine + Alex | Park Crest Event Facility | Birmingham, AL Wedding

It’s hard to put in to words how much we enjoyed working with Catherine and Alex. Catherine is so sweet and thoughtful; Alex is kind and clearly loves Catherine with all of his heart. Together this couple had the most beautiful wedding day filled to the brim with joy and a lot of happy tears. These two were married at Park Crest Event Facility in Hoover, Alabama in perfect Alabama fall weather. Catherine picked a truly incredible vendor team that made her day so enjoyable and absolutely amazing. We’ve been so excited to share this day with you so without further a-do, welcome to Catherine + Alex’s wedding day.

Fair warning: you may want to grab some tissues for these next few pictures. We’ve seen many, many first looks, but the emotions shared during Catherine’s first looks with her soon-to-be-husband and her sweet father left us all a bit teary-eyed.

After dinner, guests were invited downstairs for cake and dancing! Catherine’s cake by Barb’s Cakes was an absolute showstopper. She wanted her cake to be a huge element of her wedding design. Her six-tier wedding cake sat on a stage with spotlights, draping and floral. Guests were ooh-ing and ahh-ing as they saw this beautiful cake!
