Stewartfield Mobile AL Wedding | Shelby & Rob

Shelby and Rob tied the knot at Stewartfield with their lovely October wedding day in Mobile, AL! Their day was a perfect combination of all of the special things that make their relationship and love story unique. I love that Spring Hill College has so many iconic houses and buildings on campus, with so many bright and light spaces that make for truly amazing pictures. They couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful venue for their wedding! If you want to read about another wedding in Spring Hill, click here!

Mobile AL Wedding at Stewartfield

Shelby and her bridesmaids got to savor the morning as they got ready. They opted for bridesmaids gowns with mismatched styles and I personally love how they all came together! After the girls were all ready, Shelby got into her beautiful wedding gown with help from her sweet mom. Her bridesmaids got the chance to see her in her full bridal look after her first look with her dad! Meanwhile, Rob hung out and got ready with the guys. He rocked the groom portraits, and we were excited to have the day beautifully start to come together!

One of the special parts of the day was when the bride gave the groom a letter and a gift, which was an absolute JOY to capture on camera. I don’t think you have ever seen a smile that big! Soon after that, I captured Shelby and her father’s first look at the church. It was such a sweet moment between Shelby and her dad. Directly after that, Shelby’s bridesmaids got to see her in her wedding gown! Their reaction was so sweet!! Many hugs were given. Everyone needs girlfriends like that!

Covenant Presbyterian Church Wedding Ceremony

Their wedding ceremony was held at the Covenant Presbyterian Church. Before the ceremony, I actually got some pictures of the whole wedding party, and did the family formals. We used the intimate time before the ceremony to take some bride and groom portraits. Following that, the day flowed right into the full mass ceremony. Rob lit up as he watched his beautiful bride-to-be get escorted down the aisle by her father. The ceremony was so sweet and personal, and both dads read scripture. Afterwards, we headed to Stewartfield on Spring Hill College’s campus to capture more bride and groom portraits.

Lovely Stewartfield Reception at Mobile, AL

Rob and Shelby’s reception was full of wonderful fun, many moments of visiting with their guests, and lots of dancing! Rob teared up when Shelby and her dad did their father-daughter dance. A joyous cake cutting took place later in the evening, and some cake might  have gone on the grooms face… (wink). When the night came to an end, the newlyweds were ushered off into married life by a bubble exit! What a fun and thoughtful way to end the day.

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