Maggie and Jake Kimbrell | Douglas Manor | Columbiana, Alabama

The Love Story:
I met Jake when I was a freshman at Auburn and he was a junior. My roommate at the time was going over to meet a guy and have a game night-she invited me to come with her and I did NOT want to go. To my surprise I met the roommate of the guy she was meeting and Jake and I hit it off from the start and have been together ever since. :)

The Day:
We love a good speech from Dad. A dad’s approval is so important when getting married. Maggie’s dad had a lot to say about Jake and his emotions show you how much he admires Jake and is so happy Maggie found him to be her life partner. Listen to the sweet things he said at the reception in the video above!

Katelyn and Eric Bowlin | Danclay Farms | Florence, Alabama

The Love Story:
Eric and I first crossed paths as teens back in August 2011 at the Founder's Day celebration in Killen Park, Alabama. We shared a mutual friend, so we met up with them at the playground in the park. My friend and I were swinging when Eric showed up. Like any true romance begins, our first attempt at flirting with each other involved him standing in front of my swing, me trying to kick him in the face, and him stealing the shoes right off of my feet. I chased and wrestled him to get my shoes back. A true Cinderella story, am I right?

Later that night, on the way home, I asked "Do you think that Eric guy is cute? I think he's pretty cute", and she laughed to the point that she almost couldn't breathe. I was very confused. She then proceeded to point to the backseat that was almost completely taken over by a giant beach-ball. I moved the beach-ball to the other side of the backseat and found that Eric had been hiding under it the entire car ride. Till this day, I don't think I've ever felt so embarrassed!

Eric and I hung out for a few months after that night, but eventually lost touch through the remainder of our teenage years.

In February 2016 our paths crossed for the second time.

At this time I lived in Tuscaloosa and attended The University of Alabama. Eric lived and worked in our hometown of Florence, AL. Our mutual friend, Brooks Canup, will proudly admit that he is responsible for leading us back to each other. Brooks, who also lived in Tuscaloosa, always invited me over when Eric came to town to visit.

Eric and I took our dogs, Lola & Hagen, to the dog park for our first date (I always knew I would marry a dog person).

We officially began our relationship in May 2016, and continued to spend time together after Eric moved to Tuscaloosa in July 2016.

The Day:
It was a typical summer day in Alabama - beaming sun and scattered storms. We had beautiful sunshine all day up until ten minutes before the outside ceremony. As the wedding party gathered to walk down the aisle, a summer shower hovered right over the ceremony. A down pouring rain came out of no where and lasted for only five minutes. How lucky!? And speaking of luck, a gorgeous rainbow sat right behind the ceremony as the wedding began. It was a beautiful memory for this beautiful wedding day!

Lacey and Cody Martin | Danclay Farms | Florence, AL

The Love Story:
We met through mutual friends in March 2017. When we first started talking it was like we had known each other for YEARS. We definitely didn’t know what to think about it.... everything was perfect! After several dates and weekends spent together we knew that we were meant to be. On August 4th 2017 , Cody asked me to go out fishing with him. We reached a certain spot in Wilson Lake and he asked me to come look at something on the graph, when I turned around he was down on one knee. I couldn’t believe it. And then when I turned around, our family and friends were in the boat house right behind us. Cody really out did himself with this surprise.

The Day:
Lacey and Cody are the sweetest couple! There were so much laughter and happiness that surrounded this day. If you are a sucker for first looks and grooms crying, you don’t want to miss their first look! The love these two share is so deep and genuine. It is so apparent that these two were made for each other!

The Love Story:
Jake and Hannah met during their freshman year of college. For Hannah, it was love at first sight. But, she says for Jake, it wasn’t so much. They had their first date in 2012 on Valentine’s Day and started dating a few weeks later. Although they dated through college upon graduation their paths led them in different directions and they decided to end their relationship. They thought life was leading them towards another path. Seven months went by and they rekindled the love they shared. Two years later, their relationship is stronger than ever and taking the next step in getting married.

Emily and Reid Harvey | Huntsville, AL

The Love Story:
It was not until their junior year at the University of Alabama when Reid and Emily met. They had briefly met before at a student ministry called Campus Crusades for Christ that they both weekly attended. Little did they realize that they would soon be set up on a blind date! In early 2013, second semester of their junior year, Caroline Meyers (maid of honor) set Reid and Emily up on "Grab A Date" date party. A "grab a date" party was just that- you grabbed a date as quickly as you could given a short notice that the party would be that night. Caroline reached out to Reid and he said yes to going with Emily! They had so much fun together that evening that one date party lead to another date party. Whether they were eating donuts at Krispy Kreme or going to "Fat Boy Farm" (a Harvey family tradition and also where Reid proposed),they were soon spending lots of quality time together. It did not take Reid and Emily long to realize that they enjoyed each others company and by summer they started dating.

We have no doubt these two will have a life full of laughter and wonderful memories shared together! What an honor to capture this beautiful day!

Kyle and I have known of each other since 2010, but did not formally introduce ourselves and have our first conversation until the Spring of 2014. We met in Troy, Alabama while Kyle was in town visiting friends and I was finishing my last semester of college. A few weeks later, he made the four hour drive to take me on our first date and the rest is history. Many dates, four new cities for me and three years later, he created the most surprising and magical proposal for me in front of our friends and family!

The ceremony was held at Northport Baptist Church in Tuscaloosa, AL in a gorgeous sanctuary that was beautifully decorated with large floral arrangements. After we got Caitlin and Kyle married we moved the celebration to Alabama Museum of Natural History on the campus of the University of Alabama.

Hannah and Tyler Ray | Birmingham, AL

The Love Story:
We officially met through a mutual friend in 2015, and ever since then, we have practically been inseparable. Our friend knew what she was doing when she asked us to go to the library to study with her (she had to bribe me by letting me watch Netflix on her computer) and now it is quite literal that we are the guy/girl version of each other. A couple of days later, Tyler asked me to go to dinner and ride go-carts afterwards... I was sold! A couple of years went by and Tyler was now graduating from UAB, which meant we had to go on a trip to celebrate! We flew with Tyler's family to Chicago, IL to celebrate this special day with him. Little did I know, we would also be celebrating the start of our forever. While posing for a picture in front of the Buckingham Fountain, Tyler got down on one knee after his dad counted down from 3 for us to "take a picture". When you know, you know; and that's exactly how it was for us when we met, we knew we were the right person for the other from the beginning, and can't wait to see the rest of our life's journey together.

Kaitlin and Drew Hillis | Leeds, AL

The Love Story:
Drew and I actually went to high school together. However, we did not meet at high school. We met at Hooters when I was 14 years old and he was 16. He was walking out with a group of friends as me and my friends were walking in. (Hooters was the only walking distance restaurant to the movie theater ) He got my attention and I remember thinking he was cute. After they walked out his friends made him come back in and ask for my phone number. TWO WEEKS later he called me again after his friends forced him. We dated all throughout my high school years and broke up my freshman year of college. After a few years, we made it back to each other and have been inseparable ever since! Deep down I always knew he was the one for me! Now we have two perfect puppies that we are obsessed with named Jack and Jill and can't wait to start our forever together! After 12 years of knowing each other I can't wait to finally be able call this man my husband!
