Hollis Wedding // Victoria + Ryder // Anderson Gail Farms // Shelby, AL

(As seen on Borrowed & Blue!)

It had been four years since we shot at Anderson Gail Farms, and we were so happy to be coming back with this precious couple. Victoria and Ryder are the epitome of adorable. After six years together, it seemed that they were more in love with each other than ever before. From the moment we met Victoria, we knew we were going to love this girl. She's one of the most infectiously happy people and is always, always, always upbeat. No one can be sad around this girl! We met Ryder for the first time on their wedding day. We always have a mental idea of how we picture the groom based on the descriptions we've been given and how the bride's talked about him. Nothing could quite prepare us for the adorableness we were about to witness from Ryder. Victoria and her mom, Donna had tried to convey to us the sweetness that is Ryder, but we just couldn't completely understand. If you ever need an example of how a man can truly cherish a woman...here is your perfect example. We've never seen a groom adore his bride as well and as constant as Ryder did with Victoria.

Victoria is definitely one of a kind, which is why it was no surprise that she designed her own dress after not finding exactly what she wanted! Piecing together items from Diane's Formal Affair, she created her dream dress. And it looked STUNNING. From the bride herself to the gorgeous greenery and florals by Lillie Jane's to the gorgeous summer colors, this day was truly amazing. We are so happy for our brides when we finally arrive on the wedding day and all the ideas and vision she's been dreaming up have been created into a reality for her. Congratulations, Victoria and Ryder! We wish you two an even more beautiful marriage than your wedding day!

"You have ravished my heart, my bride; you have captivated my heart with one glance of your eyes." -Song of Solomon 4:9
