Emily is a coworker of mine at the Journal, she works for one of the sister papers in Amory. I also took her daughter’s senior portraits a few years ago! I was honored when she asked me to photograph her and Alan’s intimate wedding! Emily looked like a timeless beauty, and Alan looked dapper in his gray suit. These two have such a natural ease together, smiling and laughing all of the time. 

The wedding was held at the beautiful antebellum home called The Magnolias in Aberdeen. We got through all of the photos of Emily and Alan and their families before some storm clouds rolled in. A last minute decision was made to move the ceremony indoors, and Emily and Alan were so laid back throughout the whole day. They were just concerned about getting married surrounded by their closest friends and family, and a little rain didn’t change that! The ceremony was held on the landing of the staircase, and afterwards everyone enjoyed cake and hors d’oeuvres. It was a simply sweet day!

I hope all of your days are spent smiling and laughing with each other, Emily and Alan! I wish you all the best!
