W&E Photographie recently made their way to Bridgestreet Loft for the wedding of Katelyn and Tim, where the couple met with friends and family to celebrate their journey so far and the future. Kalee Baker Events and Marked worked their magic to bring the couple’s vision to life, putting together incredible floral displays and a day no guest will be able to forget anytime soon.
From the photographers, W&E Photographie: These guys truly outdid themselves! They put together a vendor dream team. Bridgestreet Loft is one of our favorite Birmingham venues because, well, those white walls are what my dreams are made of. It’s a blank slate for anything. Katelyn & Tim chose to utilize Laura McCarty’s killer flower skills to add amazing focal points. Not one, but TWO hanging floral installations popped against the white washed brick interior.
Tim & Katelyn opted to do a “ring warming” ceremony. It’s a tradition where the couples rings are passed down each row while their guests are asked to silently say a prayer or blessing for the couple as the ring comes to them. It was such a sweet way to allow the guests to participate in their union. Some of our favorite moments that day happened during Katelyn & Tim’s first look. Tim surprised Katelyn with a bouquet that he made with the help of Laura, their florist. He’d always enjoyed giving Katelyn flowers throughout their dating years, so he wanted to give her a handmade gift of flowers on their wedding day. Swoon! Also, the couple’s kitty, Fitz, got to make an appearance at the first look, as well.
Not only was this wedding straight up beautiful, it was loads of FUN. Cocktail hour was made complete with a “selfie station” and coloring pages of landmarks & locations special to the couple. I’m sure you’re beginning to pick up on the fact that Tim & Katelyn just might be two of the most thoughtful and sentimental people around.
