Caroline and Grant Howell on their wedding day

October 16, 2021 // Ceremony And Reception at the home of the bride’s parents

Nostalgia and family were key elements of Caroline and Grant’s whimsical fall wedding. The ceremony and reception were held at the bride’s parents’ house, and she got ready in her childhood bedroom. Caroline chose blue, the color of her Azalea Trail Maid dress and her groom’s eyes, for her wedding color, and her father’s old band reunited to play for the occasion. The couple, who met at church one Sunday in Saraland, built handmade Mr. and Mrs. letters together to display as guests enjoyed dancing and wedding cake at the reception. The night ended with the band’s rendition of “Blessed Assurance” and the couple’s farewell.
