Emma + Eli
The Willows Manor and Gardens
I grew up in the town of Pinson, Alabama. Just down the road a bit from Pinson is the town of Cleveland, Alabama. I found myself there on June 12th for a very special occasion. The occasion was the wedding of Emma + Eli at The Willows Manor and Gardens!
The Willow Manor and Gardens is a beautiful and secluded house nestled in the woods of Cleveland, Alabama. The owner has made it into a wedding venue, and it’s an absolutely aces place for a celebration. Emma + Eli really made a fantastic choice when they decided to stage their big day there.
Emma + Eli had a whirlwind wedding day on the grounds of The Willows Manor and Gardens. After getting ready on-site, Emma did a first look with her bridesmaids and then her father. She and Eli decided not to see each other before the wedding, and that made the ceremony a wonderfully intimate moment for the happy couple.
The actual ceremony was conducted at the venue’s spacious reception hall, and Eli’s grandfather served as the celebrant. Emma + Eli said their vows, exchanged rings and had their first kiss all in front of their family and friends.
Once the ceremony was concluded, Emma + Eli made use of the beautiful summer day in Alabama with a couples photo shoot on the grounds of The Willows Manor and Gardens. Everything was so lush and green, which made things look even more beautiful for the couple.
As the night progressed, Emma + Eli enjoyed a festive reception. Rusty’s BBQ provided delicious food while Thomas Nails of Blaze Entertainment kept the party going. When it was time to say goodbye, Emma + Eli participated in a tradition established at The Willows Manor and Gardens.
The couple, along with members of their family and close friends, lit lanterns to set off into the sky. It was a beautiful way to put an exclamation point on a fabulous celebration.
I want to thank Emma + Eli for having me come up to Cleveland and photograph their beautiful wedding celebration. I want to wish them nothing but the best in their lives together!
I’d also like to thank their family, friends, and The Willows Manor and Gardens for showing such wonderful hospitality throughout the day!
