Marissa and Matt | Married

Marissa and Matt had an absolutely beautiful October wedding! The weather was just perfect, not too hot but not too cold. They got married at St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Fairhope and had their reception at The Garden at Bella Sera. I have known Marissa since we were in elementary school, so I was honored to not only photograph her wedding, but to also see her start the next chapter of her life with Matt.

We started off their day at The Garden at Bella Sera where both bridal parties got ready. After her mom zipped her up in her beautiful wedding dress, Marissa and I walked over to see Matt at the chapel for their first look. It was such a sweet moment these two shared with each other. I always love seeing how my couples react when seeing each other for the first time on wedding day!

We went straight into bridal portraits with Matt, Marissa, and their bridal parties. They definitely had a fun and supportive crowd with them! Next, we were off to the ceremony and before we knew it, we were back at The Garden at Bella Sera ready to celebrate! It was truly such an amazing day filled with lots of love and laughter. Congratulations Marissa and Matt!
