Word to the Valentine-less | You are loved

‘I will rejoice greatly in the LORD, My soul will exult in my God; For He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest; as a bride adorns herself with jewels.’ isaiah 61:10

In honor of Valentines Day, I want to reach out to those of you who may feel unloved. You ARE loved. By your creator and Lord. Fairy-tales do not exist… in which I don’t believe, but i do believe in the eternal God… the lifter of our head and spirit. We are fastened by an everlasting love by the Lord Jesus Christ. His love for us was shown by his death on the cross; and is alive today!

In ancient times, to become queen, the only way was to marry the king. Isiah 61 so eloquently parallels the loving relationship we have between us and our heavenly Father. The enemy will convince you otherwise into believing you are much less than the beautiful creature you were designed to be. That you are not a child of God. Not worth being loved. Not beautiful. Not loved. My dear friend, may I convince you otherwise? Beth Moore states that ‘Scripture is the strongest bandage God uses to bind up the brokenhearted.’ In my dark days, I have always had the Bible to lift my soul and spirit, inspired by God with rich words of wisdom and love. God never promised life would be easy, but did promise to be with you every step of the way! You may not have a Valentine, but who needs a Valentine when you have the Lord loving you unconditionally? Christ is completely and utterly taken with you. Believe it. xoxo Jan

Soft maternity boudoir session | Huntsville AL. 35806

The absolute joy of being a wedding and portrait photographer is to work with precious families for years and years to come. To see them grow.

N came to us for her boudoir session over a year ago when she and her husband were trying for their first little one. She wanted to capture the essence of her body before her belly grew with their first little miracle.

What an honor. What a blessing. I am overwhelmed. Completely satisfied…. and whole. <3

Annabella at Cedar Glen Wedding | Huntsville Alabama

From the moment we met with Kristen and Ryan to hear of their love story, and wedding details being held at Annabella at Cedar Glen, there was an instant connection. From the first date when they felt an instant spark and talked for hours at IHop, to their glorious day of marriage, this couple is going strong with a deep love for the Lord. Their impeccable style, love for all things vintage, and wishes for a romantic and casual environment for their wedding day, led them to Annabella at Cedar Glen here in Huntsville, Alabama. It was sure to be a perfect fit!

Kristen’s choice of color for this unique December winter wedding was lovely shades of blue and deep purple. She pulled off the look effortlessly with carefully crafted florals from Peggy’s Log Cabin, unique deep purple suede wedding shoes, and hints of blue and purple centerpieces with mix-matched glass vases and jars. Their whole day flowed like a dream. When they are together, you cant but help feel the tender love they possess for each other. We are honored to call them clients and friends <3

5 Tips on Choosing Your Wedding Dress: A Southern Bride’s Guide

We recently got introduced to a great group of ladies through one of our sweetest brides, Emily B. We knew from the start if they’re friends with Emily, they are classy, good, southern people;)These lovely ladies (Ella, Kara & Teresa) are currently opening up a glorious Boutique Bridal Shop here in Huntsville AL. called White Dresses. It can be found in the quaint town of Providence (500 Providence Main Street, Suite 3 Huntsville, AL 35806). This wedding dress shop is full of gowns that can not be found in any other southern bridal boutique! The textures, fabric, and service is unparalleled by any other bridal boutique!! We asked them to share some tips to help our southern brides find the PERFECT wedding dress… read below how positively perfect they lay out how to choose your gown for your wedding day.

“…[F]inding a wedding dress is like finding a true friend; you should be able to trust it, you should never regret it, and whenever you see it…it should always make you smile.” -Designer Sareh Nouri

Tip 1: Start Shopping Early — So many brides make the mistake of waiting until the last minute to look for a gown and are sad to learn that some of their favorite designers can’t be ordered in time for their walk down the aisle. While our shop (along with others) often will help brides who have a short schedule, it can be expensive to rush order a gown. Shopping early will save you from the stress of rushing a gown to your event!

Tip 2: Know What Fits — Selecting the perfect gown involves more than just selecting one that is gorgeous on you! It needs to be the perfect gown to match the setting and location you have selected. Think of your wedding like a branding exercise – it needs to all make sense and lead people back to the idea or theme behind your wedding. For example, if you are planning a beach wedding steer clear of beaded ball gowns! You don’t only want to look amazing, but your dress selection needs to make sense for the type of wedding you are hoping to have.

Tip 3: Gal (and Guy) Pals — If you have watched an episode of “Say Yes to the Dress!,” you know how out of hand some parties can get. While we do know that some of that is made for TV, it is important to think about the friends and family you want to help you find the perfect dress! Make sure to bring friends and family that will support your gown selection – whether or not it is what they would select for their big day.

Tip 4: Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover — When I was selecting a gown for my big day, I made the mistake of walking into the salon convinced I was going to select one particular dress I had pulled from the magazine. As soon as I put it on, it was a complete let down. What looked killer on the girl in the magazine, made me look rather frumpy. Thank goodness I had a bridal consultant who selected some gowns that were completely out of my comfort zone and different than what I initially said I wanted. Thus, the moral of the story – never miss out on a dress because it doesn’t look like what you think you are going to want from a magazine cut out.

Tip 5: Have No Regrets — Couture Bridal Gown Designer Sareh Nouri is a smart gal – selecting a gown is more than just finding a pretty dress. Selecting a wedding gown should be about what makes you feel confident and gorgeous on your day. That means to make sure you are happy before you place an order. Never let friends, family, or a bridal consultant talk you into a gown you are not happy with! This is your day and you should be able to choose what you want!
