We are so excited to bring you this Wedding day! Ashleigh and John are about as fun of a couple as you can have. Their wedding day was filled with little moments that we will treasure for years to come. We started this day by getting ready with the girls at the historic Tutweiler Hotel. Everyone was so relaxed, which is essential for a wedding day getting ready crew. Our favorite thing to say is that the Bride and Groom’s attitude represents the entire day. Ashleigh as John were so relaxed on their day. It was so nice to see how comfortable and confident they were in the day ahead.

After having her mom help her put on her grandmother’s pearls she made her way out to the front of Tut to have a first look with her dad. We love this precious moment and dad’s permanent smile after seeing his little girl in her wedding gown for the first time.

Next was John’s turn to see his bride. We love when first looks are this sweet and happy to see each other. They then read letters to each other just out of ear shot from us and we are obsessed with this idea. being able to put your words onto paper for your significant other and being able to keep that moment years after the wedding is over is amazing.

Not surprising to anyone the Birdal Party looked beautiful and were so much fun to be around! Ashleigh and John have such a wonderful group of friends. We loved working with these people.

The Ceremony and Reception was held at Bridgestreet Gallery and Loft. While I have done a styled shoot there with Alabama Weddings, this is the first time we have had a wedding here. It did not disappoint! It is the perfect two level venue for any wedding, we hope we get to work here again very soon!

Ashleigh and John had some of the coolest food at a reception that was provided by the amazing B + A Warehouse. Nachos in Doritos bags and burritos. WE ARE OBSESSED.

The reception was perfect and one of the best parts of the entire day, Elevated Entertainment kept everyone on the floor and dancing into the night.


We are so excited for Ashleigh and John’s future together and we hope you enjoy these little moments below. Or check out our other Birmingham Weddings.  Thank you again for reading about another Love Behind the Lens wedding!
