Karye and Lynn are seriously some of the sweetest people ever. I had the honor of taking Karye's bridal session before their big day! The wedding day started at the church where they first met! Karye did a bridesmaid reveal with her girls, while the guy's hung out in the church nursery to get ready. Karye and Lynn chose to do a first look, and y'all- it was so special! There were so many emotions, from tears, to big laughs (like when Karye showed off her blue socks she was rocking with her high heels!). We were also able to do portraits outside, which was amazing since there was a storm warning that day! But it cleared right up right when we got ready for their bride and groom portraits! The church quickly filled up with guests attending the wedding. Karye was walked down the aisle by her father and her step-father, and all of Karye and Lynn's parents and stepparents gathered to pray over the couple at the beginning of the ceremony. Lynn also got emotional seeing his bride walking down the aisle, which made me tear up all over again (after tearing up during the first look!). The alter was filled with a beautiful door archway and a floral arrangement created by Karye's aunts and mother, and the couple built a unity cross together. After the two walked down the aisle as husband and wife, everyone traveled over the to Pontotoc Community House for the reception! They had delicious BBQ, a donut wall (!!), and a coconut grooms cake. Karye's cousin-in-law's bluegrass band played some music as guests mingled. We got to sneak off for some in-the-rain-umbrella photos, which may have been some of my favorite of the day! The night ended with a sparkler exit, and the two drove off in an old Ford pick-up lent to them by one of Lynn's family members! I'm so happy these two are married!
