Derick + Hayley: A Colorful Summer Wedding at NorthRiver Yacht Club

May 22



We’ve got a treat for you today friends! Prepare to smile as you’re scrolling through today’s wedding because Hayley’s joy is contagious! She has a smile that spreads to everyone around her, and our cheeks definitely hurt by the end of the day! There were so many personal touches and sweet moments from Derick and Hayley’s joy-filled wedding day that we had a tough time narrowing it down for the blog! We pulled the newlyweds out for sunset pictures a little ahead of schedule due to an approaching storm and ended up getting caught in the rain, but Hayley and Derick kept smiling it up for the camera and didn’t look at us like we were crazy when we asked them to drop the umbrella! Thanks for that guys!

As always, we had a blast being back at the beautiful NorthRiver Yacht Club and working with an incredible team of vendors! Elite Productions kept the party going (with some pretty incredible pyrotechnics!), and thanks to the incredible expertise and eye of Kristy Lee Events, the day was flawless from start to finish! From the beautiful florals to the delicious food to the gorgeous sunset over Lake Tuscaloosa – we were in photographer heaven!

Derick and Hayley – Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your family for the day. It was an honor to work with you both, and we are so incredibly happy for you! We hope you enjoy this peek at your magical day! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Hallmark!
