Wedding Planner serving Birmingham, Alabama and the Southeast for modern and lively couples

A beautiful springtime garden wedding at one of Birmingham’s favorite garden venues

Richard and Daniel Boone-Thomas were married on a gorgeous April day at Aldridge Gardens in Hoover, Alabama. They crafted a beautiful, joyful, and intentional event for their friends and family to enjoy, and it was an honor to help them plan their day!

As they told me at some point early in our planning process, they never expected to be able to do this and celebrate getting married, so they wanted their wedding to reflect not only who they are as a couple, but also celebrate and party with all of those people who have supported them! We cannot think of a better definition of a wedding, for any couple. That is what it’s all about, friends! #loveislove

Keep on reading for some of the details about their day! We excel at “matchmaking” our couples with their vendor team, and this was one heck of a team that came together.

“A little sassy, a little bad-assy”

Band: All In One Party Band via EastCoast Entertainment – they are a true party band and kept it going all night! Our booking agent Hunter really took time with Richard and Daniel to find the perfect fit for their event!

Cake: Daughter’s Bakery – the style that Daughter’s is known for, the semi-naked cake with crumbs, was started by Christina Tosi at Milk Bar, which has special meaning to Richard and Daniel. So it was the perfect choice for their wedding cake!
