Southern weddings have hold a special place in our hearts and Haydn and Wesley’s big day is the definition of sweet and southern.
Local, hometown family and friends put on their cowboy boots and gathered in this Alabama barn to watch this union they all knew was meant to be. Held in a backyard, charming details are abundant: hand-tied florals, a homemade wedding cake, and home-grown love and hospitality filled the air all day long.

So let’s talk styled shoots for a minute here. A fictional wedding, for a fictional couple,full of amazing little details that are the brainchild of some uber talented vendors; of they’re going to be beautiful! But this one!? Oh my! It’s more like a bohemian 70’s Americana love child born in the summer but inspirational all year round. With j.woodbery photography behind the lens, this pretend wedding was made more perfect by the fact that “models,” Brandy + Peter, got engaged the night before the shoot! Toss this one into my fanfic favorites for sure!
From the photographer:
The inspiration for this shoot came to me when I drove past a fireworks trailer painted as an American flag. I immediately knew I wanted to do a shoot that was Americana themed with a 70’s twist. I knew that Brandy and Peter were the perfect couple to play bride and groom as soon as we started planning! Funny enough, Peter proposed to Brandy the night before the shoot. It added an extra boost of magic the whole time we were shooting, imagining that it was their actual wedding
Magical for sure. The hair! The dress! The make up! The flowers! The whole boho-American vibe! Just color me patriotic, because red, white and blue have never looked good! This shoot has me both longing for summer and yearning to attend a red, white and blue beauty like this in real life! Thank you j.woodberry and team for creating this stunner! And a big congratulations to Brandy and Peter!
