Michelle & Tim // Spring Wedding at The Padgett Place


May 5, 2022

Soft Neutral Spring Wedding at The White Barn at The Padgett Place // Wedding Photographers in Huntsville, Alabama

There was so much to love about this gorgeous spring wedding at The White Barn at Padgett Place! During the planning process, Michelle and I bonded over our love for details and thinking things through. Walking into the venue on the wedding morning was a thrill! Seeing all the thoughtful touches pulled together to create an absolute dream of a wedding day had me doing a little celebration dance!

The White Barn at Padgett Place is a new venue here in Huntsville, and it did not disappoint! Michelle and Tim chose an elegant theme with whites, neutrals, and greenery. I loved the elevated simplicity of it all. There’s a beautiful lake on the venue grounds, complete with a golf cart to whisk us away to the Gazebo. Most of the day had a light cloud cover, which gave us a lot of flexibility with portrait locations! That always makes things fun.

Favorite Wedding Day Details

So many! My favorite definitely has to be Winnie the dog. She was a star! We brought her out for some pre-ceremony portraits and she handled it like a pro. So cute in her little collar!

Michelle incorporated several family pieces into her wedding day, such as her grandma’s hand-embroidered handkerchief and Tim’s traditional baby-bonnet-turned-handkerchief. I especially loved her diamond and ruby ring. It belonged to her grandmother and was incredibly special to Michelle.

The bagpipes and apple cider doughnuts! These were nods to Tim’s heritage and couldn’t have been more perfect. You know we love a good bagpiper at a wedding, and celebrating Tim’s Irish heritage in that way was super fun. His family is from Connecticut and love those hometown apple cider doughnuts. I didn’t get to sample one of them, but they looked amazing. We happen to be headed up to the Northeast this fall, and apple cider doughnuts are going to be high on my list if we swing through Connecticut!

I could keep writing about this amazing wedding and how incredible this couple is, but hopefully these pictures will speak for themselves.

Here’s a little peek into Michelle & Tim’s wedding day at The White Barn at Padgett Place!

Michelle & Tim – thank you for letting us spend all these incredible moments with you! It was an honor to capture your wedding day, and we had the best time. We’re so excited about your new journey together as husband and wife! Congratulations, guys!!
