The 2019 wedding season for DSmithImages Wedding Photography, Portraits, and Events continued in earnest on April 27th as I headed up to the lovely community of Mentone, Alabama to photograph the union of Samantha and Carter. This happy couple got married at the picturesque Mentone Inn but made use of the gorgeous surroundings throughout Mentone.
The day started at Samantha’s family home as everyone got ready to celebrate the big day. This is also where Samantha and Carter had their first look, which was bathed in warm and inviting springtime sunlight. The rustic setting was a perfect location for the couple to see each other for the first time on their wedding day. They even had a little fun during the first look by taking a moment to recreate the iconic “American Gothic” painting.
Once photos were done at the house, everyone loaded up and drove the short distance to the park at the scenic DeSoto Falls. Sam and Carter wanted some photos with this gorgeous piece of Alabama in the background, and I was happy to oblige their request. It was my first time visiting the location, and I do hope to get to photograph it again. When we finished with that scenic location, we went right to another one in Mentone. Sam and Carter decided to have all their family and wedding party photos done at an overlook with just a breathtaking view.
After using all these beautiful locations and settings, Sam, Carter, and the entire wedding party made their way back to the beautiful Mentone Inn for the wedding ceremony. The Inn was just such a quaint and ideal setting for an evening wedding during the spring in Alabama. Surrounded by friends, family, and lush greenery, Sam and Carter said their vows and officially tied the knot. They then enjoyed a reception catered by The Mentone Inn and celebrated throughout the evening with all their guests. One final set of photos were taken at another overlook in Mentone that had special significance to the couple. It was where Carter proposed to Sam, and I can’t think of a more fitting location to end such a wonderful wedding day.
I do want to thank Sam and Carter for saying yes to wedding photography by DSmithImages. I wish them all the best in their future together. I also want to thank their family and friends for making me feel right at home throughout the day.
