Morgan+James//wedding

Morgan and James are such sweet people, and their wedding was such a fun one to be a part of. The wedding took place Thanksgiving weekend in Starkville at The Stables, which is such a cool venue. Despite being so late in the year, it was absolutely gorgeous weather. Morgan and James started dating when they were 15, so it was very special being able to capture their love. You can tell they are best friends, and they are so comfortable around each other. When James turned around and saw Morgan for the first time that day, his shoulders relaxed and a smile quickly crossed his face. Morgan beamed as she showed off her super cute glitter Kate Spade flats, before they embraced in a long hug. After their first look moment, we started doing portraits on the grounds with their bridal party and family. Before the ceremony started, Morgan listened to music and danced with her girls, as James relaxed and watched football with the guys. When it was time, everyone walked around to where the ceremony took place, and Morgan rode with her father. It was a moment of quiet excitement as everyone walked along, and Morgan shared one last hug with her dad before walking up towards James. They said their vows, and received Holy Communion before sharing a kiss and becoming husband and wife. Y’all- Morgan and James and their friends and family know how to have a good time! A great band was playing country music covers, tons of people were dancing and the groomsman were full of jokes. The night ended with a sparkler exit. I couldn’t be more excited for these two, congratulations to Morgan and James!

Haley+Tanner//wedding

Haley and Tanner’s wedding day was pretty perfect. Haley knew exactly what she wanted when she envisioned their big day, and she and their friends and family really knocked it out of the park making it all a reality. Much of the decor was DIY, and y’all- everything was stunning! It was a beautiful fall day at Southwind, and Haley got ready with the help of her mother. She did a bridesmaid reveal with her girls, it’s such a fun moment to capture! Tanner is a police officer, and a few of his groomsmen are fellow officers, so they made sure to get some awesome portraits together. Haley and Tanner first saw each other as Haley was walking down the aisle with her father, at the edge of the lake. Along the aisle were signs from 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8, and it was the perfect backdrop for a lovely ceremony. The rings were accidentally left upstairs, but their officiant, the Rev. Steve Casteel, did not miss a beat, and the ceremony continued on as planned. After Haley and Tanner walked down the aisle as husband and wife, they exchanged rings inside. It was fun from a photographer’s perspective because I’ve never been that close up for the exchanging of rings! After, we started taking portraits. It was right before sunset, aka the perfect light! The bride and groom rocked it, even if it was pretty chilly. After they headed inside to have a seated dinner with their guests, before the first dances and cutting the cake. At the end of the night, the couple ran off with a birdseed exit. These two have such big hearts, and so much love for each other. Congratulations Haley and Tanner!

Rachel+John//wedding

Rachel and John chose the perfect fall day to get married. The venue they chose was the Oak Hill Stables, which I think is one of the best kept secrets in the area! It is such a gorgeous venue with the outdoor chapel, and the pool house and patio made for a unique spot for the reception. We started off with getting ready photos at the venue. After some detail photos (check out Rachel’s custom-made blue  Rachel’s mom and sister helped her get ready (they brought a crochet hook to button all the buttons on Rachel’s beautiful dress, very smart!) before we did the first look in the outdoor chapel. John was all smiles once he turned around and saw his bride. We went to a few different spots for photos around the grounds, and then Rachel gave each of her parents a sweet, meaningful gift (there were definitely some happy tears shed!). Guests started arriving for the ceremony, and Rachel walked down the aisle arm in arm with her father. After the happy couple said “I do!” it was time for the reception. Guests mingled alongside the pool and pool house, and Rachel and John cut their cakes. Dancing started, with many of the guests joining in, including John’s mom and dad, who could really bust a move! The couple ended their wedding with a popper exit, before heading out west for their honeymoon. Congratulations to Rachel and John!
