We couldn’t ask for more than an April wedding set in the Birmingham Botanical Gardens with the most perfect spring weather, lush flowers, delectable food, and romantic scenery! The bride and groom were easily able to mingle among guests by keeping it an intimate evening of only their closest 100 friends and family. As Ashton and Jonathan snapped few extra photos after the ceremony, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in the gardens with passed hors d’oeuvres and a signature cocktail drink from the bride’s favorite, Shindigs. As the sun went down, guests took their seats for a seated dinner and menu cards dressed with lavender. The night concluded with a band under the qazebo and a sparkler send-off.
