We love IMPACT360 weddings, especially when it turns into a reunion with other alums. We traveled to Fort Payne, Alabama, to see Haley wed Alexander on Saturday. Haley was a honorary bridesmaid in our wedding and HUGE help generating ideas and helping pull them off. It was a joy to be present at her big day, too. If you have two minutes, check out their super cute save the date video. Don’t you just love their style?
We arrived on Friday night in time for a late supper at our hosts- friends of Haley’s family. We enjoyed getting to see a bit of Fort Payne on Saturday before the wedding. Brian took Vera to the playground in town and I picked out a gift for the couple off their registry at a local antique shop, Myrtle Janes.
The Saturday night wedding was simply lovely — the ceremony was at barn and the reception was outside on Haley’s parents property.
Vera did okay at the ceremony – except for saying “eyeball” repeatedly as she pointed at Brian’s eyes. And, between eating goldfish, she was sticking them under Brian’s suit jacket lapel and saying, “bye, bye!” to each one. That’s what you want as the background music during your wedding, right?
Haley’s dress was hand-made and the bridesmaids all wore similar, but unique vintage-looking dresses. It’s fun to go to weddings and comment how much the event resembles the bridge and groom – this wedding was definitely one of those! Check back here for their professional wedding pictures (and note that Heather Hester Photography took the couples shot above!)
The reception was a smorgasbord of food and laughter. We loved catching up with I360 people who live all across the nation. The cake spread was impressive and we loved the homemade jam in tiny mason jars as thank you favors. Vera and Brian danced their first daddy-daughter dance together. so cute!
