Fiery Wedding at Sloss Furnaces

My last wedding from Bob Miller (for now! – if you missed them here’s one and two) is the gorgeous relaxed but energetic wedding of Beverly & Neil.

Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham AL (apparently one of the most haunted places in the US!) was suggested to the pair by their friend and eventual wedding coordinator, Sarah Crawford.  After visiting Sloss, they both agreed this location would provide the unique, relaxed, and energetic atmosphere they wanted.  Working within a very limited budget, they felt that choosing an unconventional location would allow them to bypass some of the traditional wedding etiquette.  “The location also said a lot about our interests” the groom told me. ” I’m an Architect (student) and Beverly is a Graphic Designer.  The soaring smokestacks and steel columns and beams (all decades old) provided an amazing setting.  In addition, much of Sloss consists of beautiful greenery sprouting out of the old steel in various spots.” 

Beverly wore a gorgeous dress, bought at Mimi’s Bridal in Laurel MS.

Thanks to photographer Bob and Beverly & Neil for sharing their day with us

    i saw Sloss Furnaces in the title and thought this might be exactly who it is!! She is a friend of a friend of mine! and I was really looking forward to seeing their professional photos at some point! very jealous they’ve made it on your site! It is a great looking venue and they did some great things with the details of the wedding.

  2. Thanks so much for the sweet post! The dress was actually under a “Private Collection” which basically means it was kind of a rip off of a designer dress, but I didn’t care. I loved it!
