I love fall weddings, especially those that include cotton and cowboy boots! Allison and David’s homegrown wedding was a family affair with so many adorable southern touches – from the old barn that made the perfect backdrop for the couple’s ceremony, to the quilt-covered hay bales that served as pews for the guests to the cotton decor that was picked right out of the field behind the bride’s house. Allison and her family did an amazing job of tying all of the details together! And as a side photography note, cotton is SO much fun to style detail shots with!!!
Rain and wind threatened the outdoor ceremony but thankfully held off till the couple exchanged their vows, which Allison wrote. Even though the rain was on again, off again, the couple and their families and guests were still able to enjoy some delicious barbecue under the twinkling trees that overlooked the fields. The newly pronounced husband and wife ran through a sea of sparklers as they made their grand exit on none other than a John Deere tractor.
I hope you enjoy some of my favorite photos from their special day!
This teal flower was taken from Allison’s late grandmother’s dress as a way to honor her memory on her wedding day.
This was the swing that Allison and her “maw-maw” used to swing on while having their long talks. Allison is sitting in the very spot that her beloved grandmother would sit as they shared their hearts with each other.
Both Allison and David work for John Deere in Huntsville so this cake topper is perfect for them!
