Jennifer and Michael dreamed of a simple but classic and elegant wedding day experience in Birmingham Alabama with the fresh new landscape of budding blooms and greenery in the Spring.  Jennifer had visions of a grand and regal entrance when she made her way down the aisle and we knew, after searching many days, that The Tutwiler Hotel in downtown Birmingham was the perfect space to achieve this look!

Jenny and her bridesmaids had the balcony suite upstairs to prepare for the day beginning with hair and make up, while this stunning wedding gown from Diane’s Formal Affair hangs beautifully by the french doors of the suite.
