June 4, 2022 // Sacred Heart Chapel, Reception at the home of the bride’s parents

Ebie and Gaines celebrated their special day in true Southern style, getting married in a white waterfront chapel just as the sun began to set over Mobile Bay. The bride, who was the reigning queen of Mardi Gras in 2019, based her wedding flowers on those at her queen’s luncheon. The newlyweds arrived at their reception by boat, and guests enjoyed a blue bar and wedding cake, both coordinated to match the color of the bridesmaids’ dresses. The evening concluded as guests showered the newlyweds in streamers and confetti as they made their boat exit in quintessential Bay fashion.
