Fall weddings are fantastic events, and I had the pleasure of photographing one on October 1st at Avondale Brewing in Birmingham, Alabama. The bride and groom were Mollie and Bradford, two friends of mine, who you might remember from their engagement session featured here on DSmithImages.
Before the wedding party transitioned to Avondale Brewing, which sits in the heart of the vibrant Avondale neighborhood of Birmingham, Mollie and Bradford got ready at a lovely home nearby. This is where the young couple had their first reveal and saw each other for the first time on their wedding day. The happy couple had a loving and tender moment during the first reveal, and the beautiful early fall weather only complimented things.
Mollie, Bradford, and their wedding party then moved to the historic Avondale Park to do their pre-wedding formal photos. We decided to make use of the stonework amphitheater on the grounds of the park, and it made for a great backdrop during the formal photos.
It was then time to go just down the street to Avondale Brewingto get ready for the ceremony. Mollie and Bradford made use of the fantastic event space the brewery has on the top floor of their building. Friends and family gathered, enjoyed the beer offerings from Avondale Brewing, and then took their seats to see Mollie and Bradford tie the knot. The two said their vows as beautiful and warm sunlight blanketed the room.
When vows were said and Mollie and Bradford walked down the aisle as a married couple, it was time to celebrate. Guests continued to enjoy the beer from Avondale Brewing and dined on delicious food from Post Office Pies, which is located right next door to the brewery. For desert, Mollie and Bradford had a series of cookie cakes to enjoy.
Mollie and Bradford capped off the night with a final few photographs taken as the sun was setting over the Avondale neighborhood. It was a great way to wrap up their big day.
I'd like to thank Mollie and Bradford for having me photograph their wedding. Everyone involved in the wedding was fantastic to work with and be around, and they all were focused on making sure Mollie and Bradford had the best day possible. I'd also like to send a work of thanks to the staff at Avondale Brewing for having such a great venue space available for people to use and enjoy.
