Romantic Fairhope Inn Wedding Inspiration

This romantic Fairhope Inn wedding inspiration styled shoot was a magical experience to capture and is one we would gladly do again! Held at the cozy and picturesque Fairhope Inn, this shoot captured just how beautiful a small wedding could be without losing the magic of the big day. This collaborative creative photo shoot was just perfect!

Romantic Fairhope Inn Wedding Inspiration

Micro-Weddings became popular in 2022 due to the state of the world. They’re different than elopements in the way that the attention to details is still there and the guest list is smaller. Whereas typically with elopements, we see only a few guests and a very light reception afterward. Micro-weddings are becoming more and more popular because they still have the grandeur and excitement of the wedding day, just on a smaller scale. We were excited to put together some ideas for a couple who might want a smaller wedding like this one!

The details for our wedding inspiration styled shoot came together beautifully thanks to the help of our planner Ashli Pridgen. Our bride, groom, and bridesmaids models were amazing and thoroughly conveyed the joy that a wedding day brings. The eye catching florals were provided by Sarah Beth’s Florist and the cake, carefully decorated with dainty flowers was provided by Sukar Bakes. The candles adorning the tables were hand painted by local artist Melissa Munger, adding a personal touch. The Fairhope Inn is just the cutest little spot in Fairhope! We were so happy to photograph this local venue! From the flower covered gazebo to the champagne fountain, it was everything you could ever want in a romantic little wedding. We were obsessed with the colors, table settings, and details. The brightly coloured flowers contrasted beautifully with the bride’s tasteful and elegant white gown.

Wedding Inspiration photo shoots are such a fun way for our local vendors to collaborate and show off all our talents! If you are looking for your wedding day vendors and love the work featured in this blog post, we’ve added a link to contact each vendor at the bottom of this post!



We are STILL obsessed with this romantic styled shoot.  And we hope you will be too! PS, if you’re planning your intimate elopement or microwedding, be sure to reach out – we love capturing wedding days off ALL sizes!
