on june 1, 2019 mallory dichiara and reese ashwander said their “i do’s” in front of their closest friends and family at the lady of the valley catholic church in birmingham alabama. the day started off with the bride getting ready at the reception venue, soiree event gallery, before heading to the church for their first look and their bridal party portraits!!
mallory chose some of the most exquisite details i’ve ever seen. she wore her grandmother’s earrings and looked stunning in her gown from Heidi Elnora Ateleir. when mallory chose her flowers for her wedding day she was very specific on the color of mauve that was chosen. her bridesmaids gowns are what i would call a mix of mauve and champagne and should have been hard to match, but Geri Carpri matched them perfectly!!! all of the details compliment each other and the glamorous feel that mallory had in mind for her wedding day.
the bride and groom were able to enjoy the rest of the day with friends and family after their ceremony and dance the night away thanks to DJ Well Dunn. as i was moving through the crowd photographing the party, i felt the floor actually shaking from the dancing that was going on! it was definitely a night to remember!
mallory and reese, i wish you all the happiness in the world! i hope your honeymoon is as fun as your wedding day and i pray that you two are actually getting to relax while you’re away! thank you for having me there to capture your engagement and your wedding day!
