The Sonnet House Wedding, Birmingham AL: The Contreras

She almost turned blue.

In the frigid cold at The Sonnet House in Leeds, Alabama, Abby and Alex vowed their lives to each other for better or for worse. After an emotional, private vow exchange that morning, the cold started to get to these two. But with the help of family and bridesmaids, Abby was equipped with hand warmers (in her dress pockets … who doesn’t love dress pockets?!) and a puff jacket on hand to slip on and off in between pictures. At one point we even wrapped the dress around her shoulders!

Even while shaking from the cold, the newest married couple on the block – the Contrerases – shared joys and tears on their wedding day. One of my favourite love song lyrics comes from Cody Fry, “our sorrows halved and our joys multiplied” and that is the epitome of their relationship. I’m so glad these two are married, and excited to watch them grow together as they venture out in Dallas!
