John & Lacey | Fall Wedding at Bayfront Park
Fall Wedding in Daphne, Alabama at Bayfront Park
Hunter and I arrived over an hour early to Bayfront Park in Daphne, Alabama to photograph John & Lacey’s wedding. Considering all the traffic that was headed out of Florida and flooding the roads because of Hurricane Irma, we didn’t want to take any chances on being late. Thankfully, the route that we took from Enterprise to Daphne was great, because we had no traffic problems at all! That allowed us to start photographing a lot earlier than expected and the timeline to run ahead of schedule, which allows more time for pictures and less stress on everyone!! I built in extra time anyway because of the larger wedding party, but everyone was either right on time or early to be ready, so we had plenty of time for photos before the ceremony! That’s always a huge relief, especially when I am inspired by the beautiful day that John & Lacey had created and I can take extra photos of everyone and everything.
John & Lacey’s wedding was the perfect way to kick off the fall season! The colors that they chose were perfect and you can tell by the amount of wedding party photos I’ve posted that I didn’t want to stop photographing those gorgeous dresses and bouquets!!
I was worried about how the hurricane might affect the weather, but there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the temperature wasn’t even humid! That’s always a plus in this area! 😃 However, there were love bugs EVERYWHERE! I have never in my life seen so many love bugs in one area before! It was crazy! So there’s a good chance you will see some in the photos 😃But I agreed completely with Lacey when she said she would rather deal with love bugs than it being too warm. Because of the wonderful cloudless weather, it made for an amazing sunset portrait session for John & Lacey! I knew immediately once I saw the sunset over the boardwalk, that was exactly where I wanted to photograph right before the sun went down. The photos that resulted are so gorgeous!
John & Lacey, thank you both so much for choosing us to photograph your wonderful day!!
