So if rain on your wedding day means good luck, what does a *double rainbow* mean!? We seriously lucked out on Jen and Travis’ wedding day! The weather was great as the bridal party got ready, and as we did group photos. During the ceremony, it started to downpour with rain! It didn’t damper the mood inside though, and these two had a very touching ceremony that incorporated their parents, friends and everyone else gathered at the church Jen grew up attending. We got lucky with another break in the rain, and we were able to take some great photos at the golf course where the reception was taking place, Chemung Hills! Bonus points: we got to ride around on golf carts! :) The whole bridal party entered the reception in style, and the cutting of the cake was followed by some very sweet speeches by Jen’s dad and her maid of honor, and Travis’ brother/best man. So it started raining again, and once it cleared, we were able to get Jen and Travis’ portrait with a double rainbow!! So awesome! And such a cool story they can tell their kids about their beautiful wedding day! The couple enjoyed the rest of their evening chatting with guests and reconnecting with old friends from high school and college, and dancing the night away! I had such a great time celebrating and capturing memories with Jen and Travis in Michigan!

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! :)
