Sibyl Temple Wedding, Vestavia Hills, AL | Eleanor Stenner

November 13, 2019

“Bané is moving here in a few weeks, so we’re getting married in a month!”

Emily sent me the sweetest message about their love story… how they met on the Rhine River in Europe while working for Adventures by Disney… She was an adventure guide and he was the head waiter… They met, fell in love and have been long distance ever since.



Honestly, it’s the perfect Disney dream come true! Emily wore a caged veil, high-low wedding dress and a special necklace. And Bané was dressed sharply in a navy suit and red power tie!

They married on the top of a hill in Vestavia Hills, Alabama on the perfect November day. It was crisp outside, the leaves were majestic and 20 people gathered under a stunning white temple gazebo. It was a family affair, with her brother playing “Come Thou Fount” as she walked down the aisle, and her other brother officiating the ceremony.

Emily’s joy was undeniable, and they are truly in love. Her tears during the ceremony were evidence of her love for Bané, and he held her hands tightly yet gently as they said lifelong vows to one another. Their lives are beginning together in Nashville now, but it was a joy to photograph this sweet day in Birmingham, Alabama!

And they lived happily ever after.
