Sara knocked it out of the park on image number 2. (Seriously, the first photo below was an outtake from the very beginning of the shoot and it is one of my favorites!) She was such a natural during the shoot, and we had fun walking around downtown Tupelo taking photos.
We also took some at Tupelo High School’s football field where Sara wore her senior jersey (a cool tradition seniors in the area do! It includes their names/nicknames, favorite quote or Bible verse and really anything they want!). Sara was named the football maid at this year’s homecoming game, and that’s why she chose the football field for part of her shoot!
Thank you for being so awesome Sara, and I’m so excited for you to enjoy the rest of your senior year!
What an amazing day this was. Allison and Michael’s wedding was such a beautiful and unique day! After a jaw-droppingly gorgeous A Midsummer Night’s Dream rehearsal dinner (I need to share some photos from that too!), the couple started off getting ready at The Antler. Allison went to school for dance, so she did her own makeup *perfectly.* She currently works for the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, and Michael also works in the creative field. He even designed and sculpted Allison’s wedding band! After a lovely ceremony in front of family and friends, the couple made their way to the reception, which was decorated by the extremely talented Tracy Proctor. They mingled with guests, and and had a bite to eat. The dances (first dance, father-daughter and mother-son) were such a fun part of the evening! Allison was so graceful on the dance floor, and Michael boogied on down with his mom! Reception fun fact: Allison and Michael had some of the best tasting cake *I have ever had in my entire life.* When the evening came to a close, the couple exited to a stream of bubbles, which made for some amazing pictures! Congratulations to Allison and Michael, these two are made for each other! :)

Classic, elegant and timeless are the words that pop into my mind when describing Karson and Nathaniel and their wedding wedding. Every detail was true to who they are as a couple, and it was such a beautiful day to be a part of! Everyone got ready at the Fillmore Chapel in downtown Corinth, and Karon’s best friend and four sisters stood up with her. Nathaniel’s groomsmen were also all in the family, and included his father, brother and Karson’s brothers. Karson and Nathaniel exchanged letters before their first look, and shared so many happy tears together! Gosh, they are so in love. I also had some tears rolling down my cheek, I am a sucker for these sweet moments! Karson also did a first look with her father, and it was such a touching moment. (I’m totally going to do this at my wedding too, such a great idea!) The ceremony began at the chapel, which is gorgeous with it’s whitewashed brick and beautiful architecture. Even more tears were shed as Karson walked down the aisle with her father, and then Karson and Nathaniel held hands as they exchanged vows and became husband and wife. A horse-drawn carriage(!) brought them to the reception at Pizza Grocery. It was so much fun getting to see these two lovely people beaming from ear to ear as they visited with their friends and family! Karson and Nathaniel ended their evening with an awesome sparkler exit, where they left for their honeymoon! I’m so thankful that I have gotten to know this sweet couple, and I just know their lives will be full of love and happiness! Cheers to Karson and Nathaniel!
