Abbie & Charlie // Classy Summer Garden Wedding


Jun 16, 2022

Summer Garden Wedding at Huntsville Botanical Garden // Wedding Photographers in Huntsville, Alabama

Abbie and Charlie blew everyone away with an absolutely gorgeous Huntsville Botanical Garden wedding! You can’t go wrong with the beautiful architecture, lush greenery, and our favorite portrait-perfect aquatic garden, and all the thoughtful details elevated the space into a smashing celebration!

With both the Grand Ballroom and the Carriage House, guests had plenty of room to flow around the venue and enjoy what the Garden has to offer. We loved the floor-to-ceiling draping that provided a backdrop for their Carriage House ceremony and the way Abbie and Charlie incorporated their engagement pictures throughout the whole day!

Spending time with these two is just so fun. We whisked all over the Garden on the golfcart, climbed our favorite hill, and snuggled in a wall of cascading flowers. From multiple veil tosses to walking shots on every path, Abbie and Charlie rocked every moment of their portraits. We’re not alone in thinking these two are pretty amazing – all the people who traveled to this destination wedding proved how loved they are!

My Favorite Wedding Details

Always so many! I loved how Abbie and Charlie used framed prints of their (epic, I might add) Cape Canaveral/Cocoa Beach engagement session as both table decor and wedding favors. What a neat idea! Abbie stashed a basket of white flip-flops for guests to use on the dance floor and a collection of often-needed items accessible for all the traveling guests.

Mason Dixon has been catering many of our recent weddings, and we’re officially fans. Their food is always incredibly tasty and served to perfection! Reception treats are often one of my favorite details on a wedding day because they’re so fun and add a splash of fun. Mason Dixon is here winning me over with the entire meal!

I could always list so many favorite wedding details, but I know you’re ready to see some of these pictures for yourself.

Here’s a little peek into Abbie & Charlie’s Wedding at Huntsville Botanical Garden!

Abbie & Charlie – thank you so much for the amazing experience of getting to know you two, capturing the amazing memories, and walking beside you through the process! It’s been an absolute treat and we’re thankful for every moment. We wish you guys the very best in your new journey together as husband and wife!
