Pam + Kevin Wayman

August 8, 2015

Pam + Kevin said "I Do" in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Ellis Ranch in Loveland, CO. We absolutely adored every element of their day but one of our favorites was the bridal bouquets, made by Pam's Aunt. The different hues of blues with pops of pink, complete with hand dyed orchids and peacock feathers took this bridal bouquet to a whole different level of awesome.

Pam and Kevin's ceremony was filled with so much love and laughter, especially when Kevin was concentrating too hard on putting the ring on Pam's finger and forgot to repeat his vows (haha!). They shard stories on how they met, where they went for their first date, the first kiss and lastly the proposal. Close friends and family shared special readings during the ceremony before the new Mr. & Mrs. sealed the deal with a kiss! 

Once the marriage certificates were signed we started the bridal party and family portraits. Ellis Ranch is located at the base of a rocky cliff which made the most perfect backdrop for the Pam and Kevin's portraits! Pam was even down for a little hike to get the best view of the cliff...seriously, a photographers dream!

The reception space was absolutely gorgeous! The multi colored and market lights completely transformed the space. We loved all the little details they included, especially the table honoring their loved ones who couldn't be with them on their special day.

Congratulations Pam + Kevin and thank you for sharing your special day with us. You are such a beautiful couple and we wish you a lifetime of happiness with lots of beer!

Toomer's Corner

Anyone who knows Auburn knows the significance of Toomer's Corner, but for those who don't, let  me give you the cliff notes version.  Located at the intersection of Magnolia and College, Toomer's Corner is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Alabama. In 1872 Sheldon L. Toomer, Jr. graduated from the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Alabama (now Auburn University) and later returned for a pharmacy degree. It is said Judge John Harper, the founder of the city of Auburn, planted "Toomer's Oaks" in 1880, directly adjacent from Toomer's Drugstore which was opened by Sheldon L. Toomer, Jr. in the late 1800's.

Since Toomer's Drugstore was home to the only telegraph machine in the city, employees found a signaling system to notify the community of  AU football wins at away games by throwing the ticker tape from the telegraph machines onto the power lines outside the store.

Since 1962, Auburn fans have been rolling the power lines outside Toomer's Drugstore with toilet paper after every away game victory. The tradition continued as an away game celebration until 1989 when the Iron Bowl came to Auburn, AL for the first time. The post AU victory celebration resulted in fans blanketing Toomer's Oak trees with toilet paper.

In the early 1990's the power lines were moved underground resulting in a new tradition of "Rolling the Oaks". This 20 year tradition continued until Auburn took the Iron Bowl over long time rival Alabama State in December 2010.

Self-proclaimed Alabama Crimson Tide fan, Harvey Updyke, poisoned the oaks following Auburn's 28-27 comeback win over the Tide in December 2010. The trees were poisoned so bad and were forced to be cut down. Hundreds gathered around the poisoned Oaks after the AU game on April 20, 2013 and celebrated one final victory with Toomer's Oaks. One final roll before the trees were removed, one of the most devestating moments in the history of  Toomer's Corner.

The city has since installed wire cables that cross the intersection at Magnolia and College. giving Auburn fans a place to continue a new version of a very old tradition, but nothing will ever be able replace those Oak trees.

Although Toomers Oaks can no longer be found on the corner of Magnolia and College, tiger fans still roll Toomer's Corner (and the entire block) after every AU football victory.

And the clean up crew is still out there with their fire hoses the morning after. Cleaning up the signs of yet another Auburn victory.

To this day, Toomer's Corner remains a gathering place for the community to the celebrate AU football wins, even though it may look a little barren without the soaring oaks. Alabama didn't win this either, Auburn did.

A Sweet Home Alabama Engagement | Auburn University | Toomer's Corner Engagement | Cam + Steph: Engaged | Stevie Dee Photography

AL-4  

Saturday, October 4, 2014. Auburn, Alabama. Game day.

We dressed in orange and headed out to Toomer's Corner for a "family photo". Stephanie was the only one who had no clue about what was going to happen next. Just minutes after the family photo was taken, Cameron proposed to Stephanie (with the ring she had looked at a year ago) in front of all her closest family and friends. From the planning, to the speech, this proposal was so heartfelt and just plain perfect. There wasn't a dry eye in the house!

After all the hugs, champagne toasts, and tears of joy we were able to sneak off and do a few portraits before heading to the game. The architecture and history behind Toomer's Corner and the original buildings of Auburn University was the perfect setting for this newly engaged couple.
