Kelsie and John’s wedding had such a creative flare. I really loved all the personal touches and the décor, some of which I hadn’t seen before. Even Kelsie’s bouquet was handmade. It wasn’t your typical floral bouquet; it was constructed from wild growth around their farm. Kelsie and John have a farm called Coosa Fancy Heritage Farm. I’ll let their words describe it because I couldn’t have said it any better. “We grow heirloom produce and happy pasture/wood raised heritage hogs with too many dogs in central Alabama. All Natural. All Good.”
Their wedding was in a historic schoolhouse. It had special meaning to John’s family; a family member taught school there. It has been a long standing and loved historic structure in Rockford, Alabama. Kelsie and John wanted their wedding to be different, not following a common script. I was pretty excited to find that out.
As you scroll, don’t miss the decorative dried orange slices-so colorful and unique! Every little detail was very fitting and so fun to photograph. This was a very, very good day. Did I mention their wedding was on New Year’s Eve? It was very important to them to have a fun gathering of friends and family and a really good party at the end of the evening. Instead of a DJ or band, they had a group of friends bring a turn table and crates of their favorite albums. It was one of the most interesting weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. I am grateful for clients like Kelsie and John and know there are many more open-minded, creative folks who want someone like Bang Images to document their day. Maybe that’s you!
Since Kelsie and John’s wedding was incredibly unique, I don’t have many vendors to share with you, but please enjoy these.
