Ellen and Matt were set up through a mutual friend, and after meeting, Ellen says that it was “love at first laughter.” That’s so fitting for their relationship, because if you know them, you know that they are always bringing the fun. Matt is constantly cracking jokes and Ellen is constantly cracking up! We love Matt’s sarcastic, dry humor and witty banter and Ellen’s adorable laugh and carefree, fun-loving, sweet spirit! They are the perfect pair, so when Matt proposed to Ellen in the same park where Ellen’s parents got engaged, we’re not sure anyone was surprised.
We loved taking these two’s engagement photos. First, we explored downtown Birmingham, from the Alabama Theater to the Tutwiler Hotel, making sure to stop at Bistro 218 for coffee, because of its sentimental value. Ellen and Matt fell in love over cups of coffee, lots of conversation, and tons of laughter, so it was such a great spot to visit during their engagement session. Later, we shot at the Birmingham Zoo and rode the carousel and visited the animals – such a highlight of our year!
We cannot wait to celebrate the marriage of this sweet couple very soon at Anniston First United Methodist and Anniston Country Club. It’s going to be AMAZING!!
