Courtney & Gary Wed at Rancho de las Aquilas

Kathy G & Company has the honor and privilege of being part of some of the most beautiful and amazing weddings in Birmingham, Alabama.  We would like to take this opportunity to highlight the Swaid & Mince wedding.


Courtney Swaid and Gary Mince were married on Saturday March 23 at Rancho de las Aquilas.  Ranchos de las Aquilas is nestled on 45 acres with spectacular natural surroundings. The wedding party enjoyed the Alabama woodlands while overlooking the mountains that provided an extraordinary setting for this particularly unforgettable special event.

Andy Hopper AIFD, with KG Designs, took care of all the flowers from the hand-made crystals in the bridesmaids bouquets and the brooch-studded arrangement for the bride, to the stunning centerpieces for the reception and the standing displays at the alter.  Andy really outdid himself.  Rancho de las Aquilas never looked so good.


The bride’s “bling” queen style was reflected in everything from her gorgeous dress to the fabulous sequined gold and silver linens.  Courtney sparkled even more with the the beautiful diamond necklace that her father gave her.  As stunning as the bride was, you couldn’t help but notice the adorable flower girls in their feather skirts.  They looked like perfect little angels.
After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed Middle-Eastern specialties with family-style service inspired by the bride’s Lebanese father.  The wedding party sat at the estate table while the other guests were seated at round tables in the dining room.  There was an extensive kitchen staff including chefs, sous chefs and cooks to prepare the amazing menu.  Olexa’s provided the stunning wedding cake and Kathy G provided the chocolate table.

Stephen Clawson played acoustic music for the reception and Christy, Courtey’s father’s wife, played classical violin.  The photographer was Andrea Orr and we can’t wait to see final photos. We hope the entire wedding party and all of the guests enjoyed attending this wedding as much as we did.   If you would like information about your upcoming wedding, please contact us at (205) 942-4210 or email info@kathyg.comkathygswaidminceflowergirl
