Rodger and Jessica’s Izenstone wedding in Spanish Fort, AL was such a beautiful day!
Rodger and Jessica are one of the sweetest couples, incredibly chill, and so in love with each other, and that definitely came through on their wedding day.
One thing I can say for sure is that the couple had a very smooth wedding day, which I know can be hard to accomplish! The girls were entirely ready when we arrived to take photos. Rodger is a very laid back kind of guy, and if he was nervous, it did not show at all. Overall the day was easy and without complications, which I partially attribute to how well Izenstone does a wedding day.
So now you know! I LOVE an Izenstone wedding! The planners are always so gracious and professional. They always go above and beyond for their couples and vendors, who are promised to have a special, unique day. You can check out Izenstone for yourself at their website here or check out one of my previous weddings at the same place here.
The couple decided not to do a first look, so there was so much anticipation for the ceremony, which––spoiler alert––was AMAZING. Definitely worth the wait for Jessica! Though it had rained that morning, we ended up with gorgeous, sunny weather. And as we do along the Gulf Coast, we had spent the week praying away a hurricane!
Some of my favorite parts of the day:
- Rodger and Jessica included their daughter on their wedding day in the sweetest way! She had special jewelry matching Jessica, and Rodger gifted her with a special ring during the ceremony.
- The planners at Izenstone collect rain water on any rainy wedding days and put it in a special jar for their couples. I think this is the one of the most sentimental traditions and a really personal memento to have from your wedding day!
- Stagecoach Cafe catered their wedding, and eight-and-a-half years ago, they catered my wedding! People still talk about the food from our wedding, and it’s no secret why. The crew at Stagecoach Cafe is incredible and they make the best food! Check them out for your wedding here!
- This wedding party enjoyed some dancing! The reception was a true celebration, and everyone had such a blast!
Rodger and Jessica, your day was a beautiful celebration of your love! Thank you for asking me to be part of your wedding, and congratulations!
