Last October, we had the absolute priviledge to team up with Brittany Lott of Elle Affairs to help plan a stunning garden wedding at Birminghams Aldridge Gardens. Aldridge Gardens is a 30-acre woodland garden, complete with a six-acre lake and walking trail. The property was once the home of noted nurseryman Eddie Aldridge who discovered and patented the Snowflake Hydrangea. He and his wife Kay conveyed the property to the city of Hoover in 1997.(http://aldridgegardens.com/nature/)
Aldridge Gardens was the perfect backdrop for the brunch celebration for Natalie and Don's morning wedding. Due to the early morning time frame, Natalie and Don did not choose to see eachother before the wedding making the walk down the aisle their true "first look".
From chicken and waffles to tables adorned with stunning flowers in the garden, the gentle breeze and the mimosas flowing we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day for this darling couple.
