Kennedy and Ethan get married at the Steelwood Country Club in Loxley, Alabama.
Kennedy and Ethan’s fall wedding was a beautiful occasion filled with so much love and family connection. We connected through Instagram many many months ago. I remember looking on her page and noticing that she has horses. I used to ride and compete growing up, so we immediately bonded over our common experience.
The vision for her wedding day was timeless, elegant, and fun. I can attest that all of these visions were brought to life. Just wait until you see all the beautiful details!
This was our first time at the Steelwood Country Club and it is now one of my favorite southern Alabama venues. I love the classic old-money vibe with a hint of Southern charm. If the outside of the clubhouse doesn’t speak for itself, just wait until you peek inside. Upon opening the front door, you’re immediately greeted with the most beautiful arched foyer that I am still dreaming of photographing again. I don’t even know how to describe it, except that it was beautiful!!
Details & Getting Ready
I will never get over the beautiful foyer that we used for dress zip up photos and Kennedy and Ethan’s first touch. I think the beautiful light wood architecture was the perfect setting for the romantic and classy vibe that the Hearn’s were going for. Just look at those arches! Yes, I am a sucker for pretty arched architecture. I aspire to have one of those pretty archways in my dream home one day.
The Hearns exchanged their vows right in front of the Steelwood Country Club Chapel. This little white chapel in the pines made for a beautiful and peaceful setting. The best thing about a timeless ceremony spot is that you can decorate it as much or as little as you see fit. I loved how the Hearns incorporated their wedding colors into this beautiful altar piece. It was full and vibrant and so beautifully tied the timeless white church and the colors of fall together.
One thing that touched my heart was the memorial chair for the groom’s parents who are at rest. The memorial chairs and moment of silence were beautiful ways to honor them. It’s moments like these that remind me of why taking photos is so valuable.
