Victoria+Brandon//wedding

Victoria and Brandon started their day at the historic Rosedale home in Columbus. It’s absolutely stunning if you ever get a chance to check it out! It’s an antebellum home that’s also a family home. These two are good friends of mine, and I was so honored when they asked me to be their wedding photographer! And it was so fun knowing them and a lot of the guests that attended, a very unique and fun experience from a photographer’s perspective! Friends Melissa did Victoria’s hair and makeup, Ellie helped as the wedding day coordinator and Michael helped out behind the scenes and helping set things up! Victoria and Brandon exchanged letters before their first look, and it was so sweet getting to witness that moment between them, and the build up to the first look. We took tons of portraits with Rosedale as the backdrop and Victoria’s long veil as the perfect bridal accessory (doesn’t she look stunning by the way?!). And we took some portraits with their beautiful pups, Deacon and Scarlett. Victoria and her father rode up to the ceremony in a horse and carriage, it was seriously straight out of a fairy tale! Her mother and father walked her down the aisle, and their friend Doug married them. It was a lovely ceremony, and after, everyone headed to the barn for the reception. They had so many fun details, like a monogram W light displayed on the wall, to a spooky bridal illustration of Victoria! A few tears were shed at the thoughtful speeches, and they couple shared their first dance under the stars. It was such a fun reception! Everyone was dancing and having a great time! It was such a wonderful day! Congratulations, Brandon and Victoria!

Laura+Paul//wedding

Laura and Paul had a beautiful September wedding at Paul’s family’s cotton farm in the Ripley area. The day began with everyone getting ready at Paul’s parent’s home. When it was time for the ceremony, Laura walked with her stepfather to Paul, who was waiting for her at the wooden alter in the middle of a cotton field. It was a small, intimate, and moving ceremony. They wrote their own vows (which seriously had me tearing up!) which they exchanged in front of about 10 of their closest friends and family. After some photos, we headed to Tupelo for the rooftop reception at Park Heights. You couldn’t of asked for better weather! People ate and drank and mingled with views of City Hall in the background. They shared their first dance, and then cut the cake! (Be sure to check out Paul’s groom cake, I’ve never seen one like it!) It was a perfect day for a perfect couple. We were able to schedule a ‘day after’ session after the wedding where Laura and Paul got dressed up, and we went back to the cotton field and took some amazing photos at sunset! I have had so much fun getting to know these two people, and I’m so excited for them to be starting this next chapter of their lives. Congrats Laura and Paul!
