Wedding at The Hope Farm | Anne Lewis & Kyle

Filed in Weddings — June 20, 2024

I had the absolute pleasure of capturing Anne Lewis and Kyle’s wedding at The Hope Farm. Their celebration was a stunning blend of elegance and fun, set against the backdrop of The Hope Farm in Fairhope, Alabama. The day began at The Grand Hotel, where anticipation and excitement filled the air as everyone prepared for the big moment. This was my first (of hopefully many) weddings at their venue and wow, was it perfect!

Getting Ready at The Grand Hotel

The Grand Hotel provided the perfect setting for the morning preparations. The luxurious ambiance of the resort added a touch of sophistication to the pre-wedding festivities. Anne Lewis and her bridesmaids looked radiant in their silk blue dresses, which perfectly complemented the coastal theme of the wedding. I took some candids in the well-lit rooms, capturing the joy and camaraderie of the bridal party.

Meanwhile, Kyle and his groomsmen were just as dashing in their white coats and black bow ties. The classic look was a nod to timeless elegance. The contrast against the lush green surroundings of the hotel made for striking photos. The way the sun peaks through the mossy oak trees – my fav! We captured some candid moments of the groom’s party, highlighting the genuine friendships and excitement of the day.

The Wedding Ceremony at The Hope Farm

The ceremony at The Hope Farm was nothing short of magical. The FLORALS, y’all! The venue’s charm and natural beauty provided an idyllic setting for Anne Lewis and Kyle to exchange their vows. The floral arrangements by Wildflowers Fairhope were breathtaking, with a coastal-inspired palette that brought the theme to life. As Anne Lewis walked down the aisle she wore the biggest smile!

Portraits and Family Photos

After the ceremony, I took extended family portraits under the tent to utilize the beautiful floral arbor, then focused on the newlyweds. The Hope Farm’s scenic landscapes offered unique opportunities for stunning bride and groom portraits. We wandered around the property, capturing intimate moments against the backdrop of whimsical flowers and crisp white architecture. Anne Lewis and Kyle are both so photogenic, making my job as their Fairhope wedding photographer both easy and incredibly rewarding.

The Reception

The reception was a lively celebration, kicked off by the energetic tunes of the band Compositionz. The dance floor was packed all night, with guests enjoying the vibrant music and the festive atmosphere. The Hope Farm’s catering was a highlight of the evening, with a menu that delighted every guest. Passed hors d’oeuvres, fresh and grilled oyster stations, charcuterie, and flatbreads, something for everyone! Late-night salty fries and chilled espresso martinis were the perfect treat.

Anne Lewis made a stunning entrance in her reception dress, a chic and stylish change that was perfect for dancing the night away. I especially loved the details of the fabric, a nod to her wedding gown. The evening culminated in a grand exit, with streamers creating a festive tunnel as the newlyweds made their way to a classic white limo. It was a picture-perfect ending to an unforgettable day.


Anne Lewis and Kyle’s Hope Farm wedding was a celebration of love, joy, and togetherness. From the elegant preparations at The Grand Hotel to the heartfelt ceremony and the fun-filled reception, every moment was a testament to their unique love story. As a photographer, it was an honor to capture the beauty and emotion of their special day. Congratulations, Anne Lewis and Kyle, on your beautiful wedding at The Hope Farm!
