Thomas and Elizabeth Carr: Camelot Manor Wedding

Thomas and Elizabeth had the most beautiful Camelot Manor Wedding. Camelot Manor is a gorgeous, historical home and is located in Westover, AL which is very close to the Birmingham Alabama area. If you’re looking for all of the classic Southern charm for your wedding, Camelot Manor is the way to go.

Elizabeth was one the most sentimental brides I have ever had the privilege of working with. There were some very sweet details incorporated into the wedding day that truly meant something. It wasn’t just for looks or trends, she had a purpose for several sentimental pieces including two bracelets honoring her late brother and stepfather along with pendants on her bouquet with notes inscribed to both of them. She also had Thomas’ ring inscribed with the wedding date and his initials.

This bridal party- let me just say, was the biggest bridal party I have ever worked with to date. I think there were thirty four people in the bridal party which means it could have been hectic, but I’m telling y’all it was just as easy going and smooth as if we had had eight people. The groomsmen and bridesmaids were all so cooperative and made the whole process easy on me.

Elizabeth was absolutely stunning. Her whole look was so elegant and classy and sure to never go out of style. Her earrings were such a big hit because of how unique they were. I instantly fell in love with them. Her veil was my other favorite of the day, and the veil shots after the wedding are literally to die for.

During the bridesmaid reveal, Elizabeth’s girls kept complimenting her on how beautiful she looked and showed so much love and support for her on her big day. After the reveal, Thomas and Elizabeth met for a first look moment in front of the house and I don’t think I have ever seen a more emotional first look with bride and groom. It was one of those moments that made me feel honored to capture. The most genuine love between two people, and the tears that were shed out of pure happiness was something only these pictures can describe. Thomas was in complete awe of Elizabeth and her beauty. It was beautiful and a moment I hope they will cherish forever.

Okay, so with fifteen groomsmen, fourteen bridesmaids, and three flower girls, you would think it would have been a mad house, but like I said before it was surprisingly easy! Thomas and Elizabeth picked some good ones because this bunch made bridal party pictures a breeze! Once we found a spot for all of them, we made it happen. Props to them for listening so well and doing whatever needed to be done to rock those photos.

The ceremony was short, sweet and had personal touches throughout. The perfect venue, perfect bride and groom, and perfect ceremony to express their love and share their vows in front of family and friends.

After the ceremony, the family took pictures, followed by more bride and groom pictures. Not only was the weather absolutely beautiful, but the light was GORGEOUS. Just look at these veil shots. I mean, I cannot get enough! I have been obsessing over this golden hour light and how the two of them were completely glowing after the ceremony.

Elizabeth and Thomas had their first dance followed by mother-son and mother-daughter dances that made everyone in the room tear up. As if our hearts couldn’t take anymore, the bride and groom shared a private last dance under the chandelier before their sparkler exit. This Camelot Manor Wedding was absolutely gorgeous, and I couldn’t have asked for a better bride and groom. They were so easy to work with and relaxed throughout their wedding day, a day that will easily go down as one of my favorites.
