Mathews Manor Wedding

Shelby and Chris had formed a fast friendship while in college. Their relationship changed over time into their deep love and respect for one another. They were married Saturday, September 27 at Mathews Manor , a very popular Birmingham Wedding venue in a very special ceremony officiated by the same minister who married Shelby’s parents 29 years ago. Rodney (the minister) was a great sport and moved aside after giving the Chris permission to kiss Shelby – I had asked him to do that so I would have a clear image of the kiss–without the minister’s head above the couple. :)


The bride’s room in Grace Hall at Mathews Manor is a beautiful place to get ready with plenty of room for the bride and her bridesmaids. Here Shelby does a little lipstick touch up.


A fun wedding party is always a plus! Here are a couple of images featuring Shelby and Chris’ wedding party. They were all great to work with and played along with our ideas. Sometimes what sounds really silly makes a memorable image! Chris and Shelby are naturals at “the dip” –how romantic!



By the time the car from Coats Classic Cars arrived, the sky had lost its sunset glow. That didn’t stop us from getting this one of them taking advantage of  the moon roof opening. Gotta love this Rolls!


Chris looks so handsome in his Air Force mess dress! And, of course, Shelby is fabulous in her bridal gown!



And what would a send off with sparklers be without a Love image?
