Candace & Kevin | Wedding ceremony & reception at Aldridge Botanical Gardens

Dorothy McDaniel’s Flower Market absolutely adored working with Candace for her June wedding at Aldridge Botanical Gardens in Hoover, Alabama. Candace and Kevin’s garden wedding was bright, colorful, and filled with meaningful details, and those weddings are our favorites.

Birmingham wedding photographer Morgan Trinker of Morgan Trinker Photography did an excellent job {as always} of capturing those details. You can check out her blog of their wedding here.

colorful wedding invitation

Your wedding invitation should set the tone of your wedding whether it be casual, elegant, or black tie and Candace’s invitations did just that. You’ll see in the photos below that the colors in her invitation coordinate with her flowers and bridesmaid dresses perfectly.

Candace wanted a colorful bouquet of garden flowers. Designer Andy Seale created the perfect bouquet for her including Juliet garden roses, purple scabiosa, light pink astilbe, antique green hydrangea, stems of fresh lavender, purple and soft pink Veronica, and Blue Moon spray roses {lavender}.

pastel garden wedding flowers

The most important ladies in Candace’s life carried clutch bouquets of purple scabiosa, scented geranium, antique green hydreangea, purple scabiosa, white dahlias, soft pink astilbe, and Juliet garden roses. We love that each girl wore a different color pastel dress. Lovely!

Kevin and his groomsmen each wore a boutonniere which included a succulent {echeveria} and was accented with hypericum berries {color: blushing romance}.

The color palette of this wedding was great. The grey suits that the men wore looked great with the
colorful pastels of the ladies’ dresses.

Candace and Kevin’s first look has to be one of the best ever. They brought their dog along, and she spun Kevin around she was so excited!

One of the many great things about a wedding at Aldridge Gardens is that almost any color palette and any flower combination looks great. There is also no shortage of great locations to take photos.

Birmingham caterer Café Iz did a great job as always. Again, Candace and her family did a great job decorating the buffet with a fun “L-O-V-E” centerpiece and moss initials hanging behind the table.
