Intimate Orange Beach Wedding | Erin & Jeff

Erin and Jeff McAuliff had such a romantic and intimate Orange Beach Wedding day with their family and closest friends! We are so glad that we got to savor that sweet moment with them. It’s always such an amazing privilege to be able to “lock-in” these moments in time with photography.

Orange Beach Wedding Day

Erin spent the morning getting ready, then did a dress reveal with the kids that were a part of her special day, along with her bridesmaids.  The soon-to-be husband and wife did the sweetest letter exchange that brought tears to both bride and groom. Following after that were the most special first looks. It was super unique for Erin to do her first “first look” with her twin brother! Her look with her dad was also priceless. What a special bond this family has!

Intimate Orange Beach Ceremony

Their mid-August wedding in Orange Beach, AL was the PERFECT temperature! The “short and sweet” ceremony was right there on the beach, and you will simply fall in LOVE with the florals on the wooden arch at the altar!!  The house where they spent the day was perfect for a family oriented wedding, the beach making a wonderful natural backdrop. Surrounded by their favorite people, Erin and Jeff read their vows and exchanged rings, then walked up the aisle as Mr. and Mrs. McAuliff!

Beach House Reception

After their beach-side ceremony and some fun family portraits, we did the bride and groom portraits! And let us just say: the beach was a splendid background for some awesome pictures, plus we got the golden hour glow! From the portraits, we smoothly transitioned into the reception. (And if you want our tips for how to have a smooth and relaxed wedding day, click here!)

The whole day included so many meaningful touches, such as Erin’s jean jacket, and the reception itself featured a really cool neon sign and a signature drink in honor of Jeff’s late father, Don, who used to combine Seagram’s 7 with 7 Up.

We are so glad that we got to be a part of Erin and Jeff’s Orange Beach wedding day – an amazing atmosphere for the perfect day! Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. McAuliff!!
