The Sonnet House has patiently waited to bring you this wedding and we finally have it all put together for you! A difficult task in marketing a wedding venue is showing all the different ways it can be designed, decorated, and photographed for a wedding. Every bride wants to be different, and we want every bride to be happy. Meet Mariah + Brennen.
They enlisted Birmingham photographer, David Bley, of Storytellers, and he hits a home run every single wedding! When I first saw the gallery for Mariah + Brennen’s wedding pictures, my jaw was on the ground for a solid thirty minutes as I looked through them. Fall at The Sonnet House has always been my favorite. It’s cooler weather, the leaves are changing colors, and when captured correctly, as in this case, it can seem a little like a fairy tale.
We enjoyed working with Mariah and creating the perfect design for her big day. Corey used soft creams and whites accented with textural greens for not only the bride’s bouquet, but the ceremony and reception decor too.
Mary Jane Clements from Joyce’s Formals styled Mariah’s hair and make-up. Corey created a beautiful cream and soft purple clip of flowers for her to wear in her hair all day. Her stunning dress is a Watters design that was purchased from Diane’s Formal Affair in Jasper, Alabama. The gown originally was strapless, so Mariah shopped on Etsy to find beautiful lace straps which were added later. She nailed it!
Both Mariah’s traditional stucco cake and Brennen’s Auburn cookies and cream cake were designed by local cake baker, Audrey of Cakes by Audrey. Lisa Davis of Perfect Events performed the ceremony music, while Brandon with Feel the Beat Entertainment kept guests dancing all night long. Guests of the wedding were shuttled to and from their hotel by our favorite, Rare Transportation.
We can’t get over how beautiful this wedding was. It will be one that we look back on and reference for years. Mariah + Brennen, we love you guys and wish you nothing but the best!
