Intimate Mobile AL Wedding Day | Ellen & Chad

Ellen and Chad had the sweetest little intimate Mobile AL wedding day we could have imagined! Although COVID has been awful to our couples, we’re kind of falling in love with these smaller celebrations. Especially when our couples are as in love and perfect as Ellen and Chad! They tied the knot in a small ceremony at Redemption Church here in Mobile before a fun backyard reception at their home in Spring Hill. We LOVED being a part of their day – definitely in part because it’s SO obvious how much these two love each other. What a special day for two amazing people.

Intimate Mobile AL Wedding Day

Their winter wedding was our first wedding of 2021, and despite the chilly weather, we couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful day. Although the day started off with some nerves, Ellen and Chad quickly warmed up and were just excited to be taking the next step together. Ellen and Chad chose to have a first look before their ceremony, which allowed us to get all of their portraits done beforehand. As you know, we LOVE first looks for that reason! It makes everything way less stressful later on in the day, even with a smaller wedding day.

After their sweet first look, it was time for the ceremony. One of Ellen’s friend’s sons play piano, it was amazing! One of the things we’ve come to love about these more intimate wedding days is how seamlessly friends and family fit into the planning process, and have bigger roles on the day of. It’s a great way to celebrate with those you love! 

Backyard Reception Inspiration

After their church ceremony, we headed back to their home in Spring Hill (seriously, have we mentioned we love it here?!) and got ready for their reception! They had a small tented reception in the backyard complete with an oyster bar and a s’mores fire pit. Oh, and they had the most gorgeous, bright flowers all around – which were a perfect match to Ellen’s personality. She’s such a joy!! It was the best way to celebrate for the newlyweds. Ellen and Chad looked perfect together all night. You could totally see in their eyes how happy and in love they are!!!!

We feel so honored to have been part of the vendor team for Ellen and Chad’s Mobile AL wedding day – everyone did such an amazing job creating a day special and perfect for these two. Ellen and Chad’s day was the PERFECT way to kickstart 2021, and we’re so happy we could be there!
