April Wedding at St.Mary’s Catholic Church| Sarah & Jake

Congratulations to Sarah and Jake! We celebrated with their beautiful April wedding at St.Mary’s Catholic Church in Mobile, AL. It was a such a gorgeous day to get married! We were in love with all of the details and special touches. Have a look at the photos. We hope you love them as much as we do!

A Wedding Day at St.Mary’s Catholic Church

Sarah and Jake had their wedding day at a stunning church in Mobile, AL. Both Sarah and Jake got ready with their bridesmaids and groomsmen at the Battle House Hotel. The room where Sarah and the bridesmaids were getting ready had amazing lightning and we were able to capture the growing excitement of the day.

After a morning of getting ready, Sarah followed up by doing a first look with her bridesmaids, dad, and her fiance as well! All three reactions we beautiful. Next we did our bride and groom portraits followed by bridal party photos on the front lawn of Cotton Hall. We absolutely loved these formal portraits! This location is beautiful and provides for the perfect privacy as well as scenery for first looks and bride/groom portraits.

Ceremony at St.Mary Catholic Church

After the portraits we headed over to St.Mary Catholic Church for the ceremony. It was a joyful ceremony and definitely one to remember!  Then we headed back to Cotton Hall for the reception. It was an amazing time full of dances and an exciting bouquet toss. There was delicious food – including an oyster boat – beautiful decorations, a cake cutting, first dances, and a send off with streamers and confetti! We LOVE this venue! It was perfect for Sarah and Jake’s special day!
