A Pastel Southern Wedding at The Oaks in Centreville, Alabama

The style of the wedding was romantic with lots of pastels and soft colors.
Tara and Will decided to a first look before their indoor ceremony. "We were in our own world and not thinking about anything but each other and how excited we were to be married!" says Tara. "It really made us feel so much less antsy before the ceremony and helped us to get more of the pictures we wanted."
Tara found her perfect tulle ball gown at Bella Couture Bridal shop in Mount Laurel, Alabama.
"We chose our wedding because it was absolutely gorgeous and had everything we wanted: a small, one room chapel for the ceremony, a barn for the photobooth and pictures outside, a conservatory for the food and drinks, an outdoor dance area for guests, and a huge antebellum home for the wedding party to get ready in," says Tara.
The bride went with cornflower blue for her short bridesmaid dresses because she wanted a color that would stand out in photos. M
