Summer Wedding at Burritt on the Mountain

Be still my heart! Melissa and Alex celebrated their marriage with an incredible collection of details that made the day exactly perfect for them. Any wedding that has a Piper and Leaf tea bar, Suzy’s pops, a private bride and groom meal on The View, AND one of the sweetest couples ever get lots of bonus points in our book.

Burritt on the Mountain weddings are so beautiful! The View overlooking Huntsville in the valley is one of the favorite reasons our couples choose to have their wedding at Burritt, and it makes us really happen when the weather cooperates enough to use it as a backdrop for portraits at different parts of the wedding day!

As You Wish

Melissa and Alex are so perfect for each other. Listening to them recite the vows they wrote, watching them laugh together when something hilarious happens, and seeing the way their glances catch each other in the deepest moments – it really reminds me what a beautiful thing relationships are.

We have so much fun with these two sweet souls! Their personalities shine through in the details they want to bring into their pictures. Harry Potter came along to their fall Cove engagement session to speak of The Unbreakable Vow, Vans were the footwear of choice, and their official incorporated an impressive number of Princess Bride quotes into their ceremony.

“Why do you wear a mask and hood?”
I think everybody will in the near future,” was the man in black’s reply. “They’re terribly comfortable.”

Melissa and Alex rescheduled their May wedding to a beautiful August Tuesday due to Covid. It’s been the story for so many 2020 brides, but these two really took it all in stride! It’s never an easy decision to make. We’re so thankful these weddings have been allowed to happen, even if masks and hand sanitizer are the new trend!

Admist the covid details, there were plenty of amazing details that Melissa and Alex brought in to treat themselves and their guests. Like a Piper and Leaf tea bar!! We’re huge Piper and Leaf tea bar fans, and it did not disappoint. They also invited Suzy’s Pops (PERFECT for a summer wedding!) and had an entire selection of cheesecake flavors in lieu of a wedding cake.

Enjoy a peek into Melissa & Alex’s Burritt on the Mountain wedding!

Melissa & Alex – thank you for getting married, inviting us to come along on the journey, and for being YOU! From your engagement session to the wedding and every moment in between, you’ve been so much fun. Hugs to you both!!
