Melissa + Curt
Lake Guntersville State Park
April 17th, 2021
Lake Guntersville State Park in Guntersville, Alabama is one of my favorite places in Alabama to photograph a wedding. I’ve had the pleasure of shooting numerous weddings there in the past, and I had the pleasure of shooting one there on April 17th.
That is when I headed up to Lake Guntersville to photograph the wedding of Melissa + Curt. You might remember them from their engagement session at Tannehill State Park.
Melissa + Curt along with their family and friends were such a delight to work with during this special day of celebration. Lots of family remembrances were incorporated into the design and look of the wedding, such as Melissa’s dress having portions of her mother’s and grandmother’s wedding dress.
The formal wedding photos were taken at the state park’s beautiful lodge facility, and the actual wedding celebration was conducted on the lodge’s balcony. Melissa + Curt were blessed with gorgeous weather and a gorgeous view of Lake Guntersville for their ceremony.
Once the ceremony was finished, everyone went into one of the grand event spaces at the lodge for the reception. Music by Mike kept the party going throughout the night as Melissa + Curt celebrated with friends and family.
It was also the birthday of Melissa’s father, so he got a special piece of prime rib delivered to him with a birthday candle in the middle. He was then given a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday” by the entire crowd.
When it was time to say goodnight, Melissa + Curt made their exit through a stream of bubbles and the cheers of their guests. It was a beautiful way to end a beautiful day.
I’d like to thank Melissa + Curt for having me come up to Lake Guntersville to photograph their wedding. It was a delight working with them, and I wish them nothing but the best in their future together. I also want to thank their family and friends for the warm hospitality shown to me throughout the day!
I’d also love to talk with anyone looking to book photography for their upcoming wedding or elopement celebration. Please visit my wedding photography pricing page to request a personalized quote.
