Classic Bayside Wedding Day | Haileigh & Mitchell

Haileigh and Mitchell got married in October of 2021 with the most classic Bayside wedding day in Daphne, AL! Their perfect day was spent surrounded by friends and family with those they love the most. It was so incredibly sweet to witness this couple wed in the very place they first met!

Wedding Day at Bayside Academy

Haileigh and Mitchell’s day started with them getting ready with their best friends! Haileigh actually met her bridesmaids way back in first grade while at Bayside. How special is that?! While getting ready in a beautifully lit Fairhope location, the girls headed outside to enjoy the mid-day cool front. I was so excited to capture a special moment with just her and her girls, reading a book of letters they had put together for her to cherish for years to come.

Haileigh chose to do a first look with both her brother and then her father before seeing Mitchell. Seeing the love the family has for each other was so beautiful! After seeing her brother and her father for the first time, Haileigh and Mitchell shared the most precious first look and spent some one on one time together for bride and groom portraits before the hustle and bustle of their big day truly began.

Bayside Wedding Ceremony and Reception

After bridal party portrait and formal family portraits, it was time for the ceremony to begin! Everything about this late October wedding day was absolutely stunning. The weather, the music, the florals, and the setting. Haileigh and Mitchell’s reception was an indoor/outdoor celebration on Bayside’s campus. It was a wonderful evening!

Congratulations Haileigh & Mitchell!

Haileigh and Mitchell, thank you for asking me to be a part of your beautiful wedding day in Daphne! It was wonderful from start to finish and I’m so happy I could be there to celebrate with you!
