Fall in Alabama is always a beautiful time, especially when you go to picturesque locations like Lake Guntersville State Park in Guntersville, Alabama. I found myself there on October 13th to photograph the union of Savannah and Zach for DSmithimages Wedding Photography, Portraits, and Events. You might remember seeing photos of Savannah and Zach’s engagement session on the lovely grouunds of Oak Mountain State Park. Like that day at Oak Mountain, Lake Guntersville was a gorgeous location for the happy couple.
Savannah and Zach are alumni of Mississippi State University’s forestry program so they wanted that to be represented in their wedding photography. From the woodsy and natural location of Lake Guntersville to Mississippi State theming and decorations, such as mini-cowbells for the guests to enjoy, the spirit of “Hail State!” and “Go Bulldogs!” was present throughout their wedding day.
The couple opted for a first look with Lake Guntersville in the background, and then they went inside to the exquisite lodge on the grounds of Lake Guntersville State Park to do their formal wedding party photos. Savannah also took this time to do a first look with her father, which made for a really sweet and tender moment. Earlier in the day, Savannah’s mother also presented her with old family wedding bands, which made for another really touching family moment.
When it was time for the wedding, Savannah and Zach said their vows on the balcony of the lodge right before sunset. Everyone had a wonderful view of the celebration along with the beautiful Alabama lake in the background. Aftering taking some time to do some absolutely stunning sunset photos, Savannah and Zach joined their guests for a reception that was quite the party. Everyone danced and celebrated the happy day with the newlyweds until they made their exit to the chorus of mini-cowbells.
I’d like to extend a word of thanks and congratulations to Savannah and Zach. I’m so honored they had me out to photograph their wedding, and I wish them the absolute best as a married couple.
