Shelley and Andre | Married | Fort Morgan, AL
Stop the presses! It’s wedding’s weekend for Shelley and Andre.
Shelley and Andre booked Andree Photography!
This should be the headline of a front page newspaper! Because these two love birds deserve national coverage with this incredible love story!
A few years back Andre traveled back and forth from Brazil to US with a tennis scholarship. He met Shelley while both attending college in North MS.
To say that I am fortunate to have met this sweet family would be an understatement. Shelley found me on a portal for wedding pros online. After a detailed Skype session we decided to make wedding magic together.
When I arrived at the beach rental in Gulf Shores on a gloomy Saturday, I was greeted by a flurry of cheers and hugs and all things pretty!
It. Was. Heaven. Mrs Clara, Shelley’s mom, ran around making sure everything is perfect for her baby girl’s wedding day. All while her dad and brothers were setting up the guest tent to cozy away from the menacing weather.
After an entire week of nothing but gloom and doom and raining cats and dogs, I was slightly freaking out about our beach ceremony, but guess what… God stopped the rain for long enough where we had our sandy affair without any other interruptions other than a very curious heron hanging around to see what was happening on his territory… Funny little guy!
Must give thank you where it’s due: to my trusted and incredibly helpful and talented assistant/second shooter/crowd gatherer/heavy bed mover (don’t even ask!!) and all around awesome person Ira Bates.
Someone like him is rare to come by and I am very very lucky to have Ira working with me every time! You don’t succeed alone and to depend on amazing people every single day is the only key to success!
I’ll leave you now gushing over how gorgeous these people are! And can we take a minute to appreciate the fabulous these mint green/sea glass bridesmaids dresses?!
