A stunning wedding in Decatur, Alabama at The Witt House, Carol Anne and Mitchell’s wedding day could not have gone better!
The timeline of their wedding day was not traditional, however, it was the perfect celebratory day where family and close friends were able to spend much of the day together! I absolutely LOVE when my couples choose venues to spend the entire day at- it really does keep everything much simpler as there is no extra travel times and locations. Everyone showed up to the Witt House, enjoyed a lovely lunch together, shared their love in speeches to the couple and had a sweet time all together.
Much of this wedding was incredibly special. If you have not yet read my previous blog post about the evening before this wedding, I would highly encourage you to do that now, and then join back to finish reading. You can view that blog post titled, “Not One Forgotten” HERE.
After the luncheon with family, Carol Anne and Mitchell had a few hours to take their time, finish getting ready for the ceremony and begin the First Look and portraits. You would never know from the pictures that it was a cold and rainy day in the low 50’s!! (And I didn’t think to pack a warm coat… you know, because it was MAY.) Fortunately, Carol Anne and Mitchell were the sweetest people with the biggest smiles the entire day… It also helped that we had a huge covered front porch to take pictures under! BUT YOU GUYS! That first look! Yep, Carol Anne dressed up in the infamous Dinosaur costume and Mitchell’s face was priceless! Man, I have the best couples!! After the first look, Carol Anne’s 3-year-old son, Asa, joined us for more pictures. WHAT A STUD. I couldn’t take enough pictures of him!!!
We finished up pictures and it was time for the ceremony. Mitchell played a song he wrote on his guitar as his lovely bride walked down the aisle, escorted by Asa. It was perfect and there was not a dry eye in the room. At the end of the ceremony, all 3 families joined together in prayer around Carol Anne, Mitchell, and Asa. And if that isn’t sweet enough, right before being pronounced husband and wife, everyone sang the chorus of a song that Matthew, Carol Anne’s late husband, wrote. I know he was honored in that. I also know God was glorified in that. It was beautiful and so meaningful.
The new family walked together down the aisle and headed straight for the cake. And after a short time of mingling with family and friends, they left.
It all went by so fast. And it was truly a grace-filled and memorable day.
