An Elegant, Southern Wedding at Mountain Brook Club in Birmingham, Alabama

The Deep South played more of a role than just the setting of Keeley Patterson (25 and an auditor) Graham Tayloe’s (35 and a recreational land specialist) wedding. It was also the theme for their big day. Born in a small Southern town, Keeley wanted to stay close to her roots, as well as to those of Graham, who enjoys hunting and exploring the great outdoors of their home in Alabama. In addition to incorporating friends’ businesses into their special day, the couple worked to make sure both of their interests were represented, blending hunting elements perfectly with stunning floral arrangements. “Graham is very outdoorsy and adventurous, and I play to the more glamorous things in life," Keely says. "Between the turkey feathers and the beauty our wedding party, the wedding was a perfect combination of us together." —Ginger Harris
