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

Huntsville Botanical Garden Wedding Portrait at the Japanese Aquatic Garden

We’re all still basking in these memories of a beautiful summer day for Ryann & Jake’s wedding at Huntsville Botanical Garden! Now that we’re hitting 85 degrees and making “wow, it’s so hot” comments, I’m officially moving the wedding season category from spring to summer. But on a day when a pop-up thunderstorm was forecasted to hit right in the middle of pre-wedding portraits, basking in the summer sun was something I was more than happy to do!

Ryann and Jake chose the Garden’s Carriage House for their reception and decorated it with bright splashes of color for their tablescapes. Ryann loves pops of color against a clean backdrop, so we took advantage of the amazing balcony space for their First Look and initial bride and groom portraits. Aftward, we took our amazing golf cart ride out into the Garden (always one of my favorite parts of a Garden wedding!) and cheered as Ryann and Jake rocked their portraits.

A Meadow at Lonnie Lake ceremony later, these two were married and the official celebration began. We love some Mason Dixon catering, and she absolutely did not disappoint! How she does it, I’ll never know. A hopping dance floor makes our evening so much fun, and there are so many fun memories from start to finish.

A Few of My Favorite Wedding Details

Bonus favorite moment was having another one of our J&A Couples there as guests! The officiant and another one of the guests were bridesmaids from that wedding, and it was just so fun getting to reconnect for a little bit.

The bridesmaid dresses were beautiful! The delicate design and color were perfect for a summer garden wedding. I loved seeing something a little more unique.

Mason Dixon never, ever disappoints, but tonight she blew us away (again) with how good her food is. A dessert s’mores bar and late evening charcuterie board rounded out an epic offering. I’m officially a late night snack charcuterie board fan for the wedding day!

I could keep going, but the pictures will let you glance at the amazingness that was Ryann and Jake’s wedding day.
