Most brides would faint at the thought of a six-month engagement, yet for Trevor and Riley, it was the perfect amount of time so that they could finally start their lives together. From the letters they wrote to each other, it is evident that their love is pure and strong. Not even the off and on rain showers could dampen that. Their love was born and rooted throughout the difficulties of the nursing school along with the joyful moments in-between including welcoming a beautiful golden retriever fur-baby named Asher into their lives. Asher was present all day on their special day and had a special time of photos with the new blossoming family.

Riley looked radiant in her beautiful wedding gown. Her two sweet sisters helped her into her gown and her shoes. It was such a touching moment watching the three of them along with their mom putting their finishing touches on with joy and excitement. Trevor also looked so handsome in his navy tuxedo. Together Riley and Trevor truly looked like a match made in heaven.

The wedding festivities were held at the gorgeous Rosegate Venue. The ceremony was held outside beside the gleaming lake among the giant oak trees. Even though there were small showers throughout the day and even during the first look, nothing was going to stop Riley and Trevor from having the most beautiful and meaningful wedding day possible. The reception was an absolute blast being led by the amazing Groove Factor Wedding Band. For hours, Riley and Trevor danced and celebrated with all their family and friends. Even a hilarious (near-catastrophic) garter toss made a highlight of the night.

Riley and Trevor were married on October 26, 2019, at Rosegate Venue outside Florence, Mississippi.

#newpairofJordans

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.
— Lamentations 3:22-27

Fate and destiny are the perfect words to describe how Holley and Kevin met and fell in love. Their wedding day was a gorgeous masterpiece from the beautiful church to the clear October day and it was a joyous celebration.

Holley beamed in her gorgeous wedding gown and flawless hair and makeup. Not only was she beautiful, but she also has a heart of gold and made sure everyone was happy throughout the day.

Kevin looked great in his tux and was so excited to see his bride during the first look. Immediately after the first look, all the tension and nerves drifted away and they were happy and comfortable.

The ceremony at First Presbyterian Church of Corinth was witnessed by many family members and friends. The celebration that followed happened in a tented field in the neighborhood of Holley’s parents. A margarita bar and cowboy hats were the hits of the party. Beautiful white confetti flew in the air as Kevin and Holley left. It was a perfect ending to a perfect day.

Jesse and Hannah had the wedding that most little girls dream about. The glamour of it all seemed like one you would watch in a fairytale movie. Beautiful bride in a gorgeous Berta dress. The handsome groom dressed to the nines. Everything from the venues to even the smallest details was perfect, lovely, and timeless.

Hannah and her girls got ready at the historic and elegant Chancellor House. This is also the place where they had their first look. The contrast of them in the light of the huge window under the chandelier produced stunning silhouettes of them dancing, kissing, and just being close.

Soon they were surrounded by their bridal party at The Jefferson where the rest of the day would be held. Guest poured into the main hallway and filled the room just in time for the ceremony to begin. As they said their vows, it was evident that Jesse and Hannah truly have such a pure and sincere love for each other. It was a perfect elegant ceremony.

The reception began with a scrumptious sit-down meal provided by Taylor Grocery. Jesse, Hannah, and their families knew how to treat their guests with the absolute best. Then came time for the dances and the cake cutting! Even though they were married in Oxford, Jesse and Hannah are Mississippi State alum which rang true as they rang their new custom painted cowbell of the two of them! The Troy Laz Band was an absolute crowd pleaser and knew how to get the party started! The whole wedding day of Jesse and Hannah was an absolute honor to be a part of!

Jesse and Hannah were married on August 10, 2019, at The Jefferson in Oxford, Mississippi.

Britt and Brooke met when they both started new jobs at an apartment complex in Starkville, Mississippi. With Brooke’s bubbly personality and gorgeous smile and Britt’s muscles and sincere charm, it didn’t take long for them to fall in love. Their wedding day overflowed with sweet sentimental details of past family members and the community that supported them throughout their whole lives. 

Brooke and Britt decided to wait until the ceremony to see each other. During the day Brooke and her bridesmaids had a blast singing their favorite songs, dancing, and laughing together. They were astonished when they saw her in her wedding gown. The beautiful material swayed wonderfully when Brooke twirled. 

When it was time for the ceremony, a group of Lafayette County deputies came in and sat in a row near the front to honor Brooke’s late grandfather who was the county sheriff for many years. As Brooke walked down the aisle escorted by her grandmother, they placed a white rose on a chair in the front row where his hat sat. It was very apparent that Brooke’s love for her grandfather was honored in the sweetest ways. Even though he was not physically present, his life and legacy were displayed with pride and respect, which is exactly what Brooke and Britt wanted. 

The reception afterward was filled with food from Taylor Grocery and dancing with a live band. Britt and Brooke were married on July 6, 2019, at the Jefferson in Oxford, Mississippi.

The Mississippi Delta may be Mississippi’s hidden gem. With the revitalization of many of the small towns, even other Mississippian’s have become tourists as they re-explore and experience the quaintness and loveliness of the scenery. 

Parker grew up in the bustling town of Cleveland, Mississippi. On the day of his wedding, he and his groomsmen and ushers went and played basketball at his high school. The night before the wedding, the rehearsal dinner was held in the popular and elegant Grammy Museum. The downtown area of Cleveland had a cute farmers market in the middle of where the old railroad tracks came through and local shops and restaurants only added to the charm of the city. A few blocks away, First Baptist Church of Cleveland stands as a historical landmark of heritage and hope. Places like these shaped the wedding day of Parker and Ali. 

Ali was so excited to show her bridesmaids her wedding gown. She looked stunning in it with the cut off shoulders and long silk train. Parker and Ali read letters to each other that day which only increased the excitement and anticipation of waiting until the actual ceremony to see one another. Taking this traditional route, it was such a blessing to see Parker’s face and real emotion come to the surface as his beautiful bride walked down the aisle. 

Many other aspects can be said of the wedding day itself from the lovely details to the sentiment of the ceremony, but one aspect of the weekend made more of an impact on those who experienced it. The rehearsal dinner was wonderful. The Grammy Museum was awesome to look through and learn from. However, it was the speeches and toasts from the family and friends that truly reflected the character of Parker and Ali. Usually, the family and maybe a few of the party would speak, but not this rehearsal dinner. Nearly everyone who was there spoke of the impact that both Parker and Ali had on their lives. Truly it was astounding to see just how much they cared and loved so well those who were in their lives. It truly was a testament of the character and integrity that both Parker and Ali have both individually and now together as a united couple. 

The reception was held at the Warehouse where the band rocked and people danced for hours. The celebration was perfect! To end the night Parker and Ali raced toward the limo as confetti cascaded down all around them. 

Parker and Ali were married on June 22, 2019, at First Baptist Church in Cleveland, Mississippi.

The quaint bustling town of Ocean Springs is a secret gem of Mississippi. Its beaches are white, the giant trees are covered in hanging moss, and the history is etched in the streets and shops. This unique town was the perfect place for Alexis and Tyler to get married. 

Their day seemed to have two distinct themes: sophistication and fun. The sophisticated moments ranged from her stunning gown with its intricate beading from her waist up to her neck, to the ceremony in the grandeur of First Presbyterian Church, and from the chic boutique hotel that Alexis and her bridesmaids got ready at to the stunning, tiered, white wedding cake. All of it, even the small details, made the day so refined. 

The fun moments were also so thrilling to capture. Bridesmaids jumping on the bed and popping Champaign to jumping in the pool as the sweet couple left the reception. 

Above all else, the letters that both Alexis and Tyler wrote to each other were not the run-of-the-mill letters. They were filled with promised based on truth and sincerity. The emotion and sentiment behind the words went beyond the feelings of the temporary fleeting moment but were filled with the eternal commitments and declarations of love. It is evident that Tyler and Alexis meant every word and are truly soul mates. It was such an honor to be a part of the day. 

Tyler and Alexis were married on June 15, 2019, at First Presbyterian Church in Ocean Springs, Mississippi.

It all began with a Shrute Farms t-shirt... now they’re married.

The wedding weekend of Zac and Parker began on Thursday evening at Proud Larry’s, a famous restaurant located in the downtown square of Oxford, Mississippi. Both of their fathers, the maid of honor, and the best man-made toasts to the happy couple. Laughter and tears of joy filled the room as they prepared for the special day ahead.

Thoughtfulness and sincerity were the characteristics that filled the day. Parker wrote a letter to each of her bridesmaids and gave the letters to them after she put on her beautiful wedding gown. She and Zac both had written letters to each other that were filled with memories of the past and dreams for their future together. It was so evident that both of them were so comfortable and at ease with each other. Even though it was their wedding day with tight schedules and last-minute preparations to be done, they were still playful with each other and completely themselves throughout it all.

The ceremony was filled "to the max" with people sitting from the front to the very back of The Jefferson Oxford’s main entrance hallway. Saying vows, stating commitments, symbolizing their union with a unity candle, and finally sealing everything with the kiss, Zac and Parker were husband and wife. The reception was an incredible celebration with a live band and dancing. Nothing could have been better than just seeing the love that Zac and Parker have for each other and watching them dance the night away.

Zac and Parker were married on June 14, 2019, at the Jefferson in Oxford, Mississippi.

Sometimes there is no better description of two people being perfect for one another than simply stating that it seems as if their souls were woven together by the hands of their Divine Father. Samuel and Rachel are a beautiful example of this. Their ease, peacefulness, and natural joy that manifests from them for each other is such a wonder to behold. Their friendship, companionship, and love for each other are undoubtedly and inspiring.

Their wedding day, one that could cause much chaos and stress, was one of laughter, tears of happiness, and calmness. In her gorgeous dress and her handmade long laced veil, Rachel truly shined. Samuel’s face during their first look, said it all. Sweet sincerity embraced them as they embraced each other. Their ceremony was one of reverence toward the Lord and toward the holy covenant that they knew they were making. Rachel’s father walked them through their vows and declared a beautiful benediction over their marriage.

The celebration was filled with sweet details and the excitement of cake, outdoor games, and light dancing. No better grand exit than that of Samuel sweeping Rachel off her feet and carrying her through showers of rose petals and bubbles. They waved goodbye from an old fashioned antique car and off they were into the new chapter of marriage.

Samuel and Rachel were married on June 8, 2019, at First Baptist Church of Jackson in downtown Jackson, Mississippi.

Old Waverly Golf Club is an ideal place to get married- vintage charm coupled with timeless elegance and glamorous detail. It’s a gorgeous option for brides who grew up in the small towns scattered about the central east part of Mississippi. Old Waverly was the place for Megan and Blake to begin a new chapter of their lives together.

Megan glowed in her wedding gown accentuated by her hanging diamond earrings. She presented everyone she loved dearly with thoughtful gifts throughout the daya. After their tender first look under the natural canopy of shady oak trees on the elegant drive up to the clubhouse, she presented Blake with a gold watch and a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle’s 15 year old Bourbon. He presented to her a beautiful diamond bracelet that added such sweetness to her wedding attire.

During their ceremony surround by their family and friends, Blake and Megan exchanged vows that brought forth tender-hearted emotions from them both. Truly no one would protest that Blake and Megan loved each other deeply.

For the reception, music and dancing were on the top of the list for everyone celebrating their day. Delicious food and drink were ceaselessly served. For a fitting exit, Blake and Megan drove off in a “Just Married” golf card through a sea of sparklers lighting the way!

Blake and Megan were married on June 1, 2019, at Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point, Mississippi.

Picture this: a whimsical, carefree, gorgeous girl wearing a white flowing gown with tiny flowers in her hair walking down an outdoor aisle to a loving, tenderhearted, handsome guy that within a matter of hours would be her husband. A whirl of emotions and expectant anticipation hanging in the air as well as in their hearts. When he turns around, he sees his girl, glowing with a genuine and sincere love for and from their Heavenly Father and for him, her soon-to-be husband. That was Ethan and Hayley on their incredible, unique, spiritual, eclectic, and enchanting wedding day.

The Memorial Day heat was swept away by a classic breeze rustling the tall grass and green trees. The sun high in the light blue sky declared that this day would be perfect. In a tiny cottage at the back of the Bridlewood property, the bridesmaids were finishing their final details only to be dismayed by the beauty of their beloved friend as she stood before them in her flowing white gown crowned with flowers in her hair. She swayed freely and excitedly in her dress and carried her wildflower-inspired bouquet with ease.

Ethan and his gentlemen were dressed in light grey trousers and suspenders with a floral tie as a touch of summer color. Surrounded by prayers, Ethan couldn’t wait to see his bride. That moment was such a sweet one to capture. They reread letters that they had written to each other years earlier in their relationship, being reminded of the yearning, the waiting, and now the irony that it was finally happening. During the ceremony, officiated by Ethan’s father, they read individual vows that they had prepared for one another almost eclipsing the fact that they were marrying each other by their declarations to include, cling to, hold fast to, and earnestly desire God above all others including themselves. Selflessly and securely they became husband and wife in the presence of family, friends, and God Himself.

After the special dances and feasting, the toasts were given by a few people in the bridal party. It was clear that Ethan and Hayley meant a lot to those in their lives. Celebrating and dancing were the final aspects of the day. That Memorial Day would be something absolutely wonderful to remember for Ethan and Hayley.

Ethan and Hayley were married on May 27, 2019, at Bridlewood in Madison, Mississippi.

There’s nothing like a May wedding- flowers blooming, bees buzzing, that slight cool breeze mixing within the humid Mississippi sky. It all began one day when Joseph texted Reid asking what time her game started in high school. Later she found out that he already knew what time her game started but wanted a reason to talk to her. How sweet is that?

Their wedding day was filled with family and friends, dancing, laughing, and cooling off from the hot sunny weather. From the first look until the final grand exit, anyone with eyes could see their love was nothing but true and sincere. Their playfulness and light-hearted attitudes made the day even more fun. Jumping on Joseph's back after the first look, it was clear to see that Reid was having a wonderful day. The sunset also was perfect and made them actually glow under her flowing veil as they posed for photos.

The ceremony was filled with many more family and friends coming to join in their celebration. The reception was down a long winding gravel road leading the way to a wonderful cabin surrounded by woods and a gorgeous lake. As they rode off into the sunset, fireworks fluttered in the sky becoming the perfect backdrop to the perfect wedding day.

Joseph and Reid were married on May 25, 2019, at Ingomar Baptist Church outside New Albany, Mississippi.

“The blessing of the Lord—it makes truly rich, and He adds no sorrow with it” Proverbs 10:22 was the blessing Joel read on his wedding day over his marriage to Jalissa. Most people wouldn’t know all the prayers, intentional preparations, and detailed planning that took place to truly consecrate this day above all other wedding days. For Joel and Jalissa, this day was one they yearned for many years prior; this day was one they patiently waited upon the Lord for; this day was to be not only displaying the sacred aspects of a marriage covenant, but it was to exceedingly glorify the Lord God above all else.

Joel and Jalissa’s wedding day was truly a display of what the heavenly feast may look like. People of many nations, backgrounds, and experiences came together to behold a holy and sacred moment in the midst of everyday life- a wedding ceremony and celebration. Jalissa flowed in her wedding gown radiating the beauty of a woman of strength and dignity. She truly embodied a woman spoken of in Proverbs 31. Joel was nervous until the point where he got to hold Jalissa’s hand as they read sweet letters that the other had written.

But it wasn’t until the bride walked down the aisle escorted by her older brother that the groom got to behold her. Every aspect of the ceremony had meaning and purposefully directed everyone’s gazes not upon the couple, but upon the true and perfect lover of our souls, Christ Jesus.

At the celebration, intentionality encompassed every passing moment. From speeches from family and friends to passing out slices of the wedding cake to every individual person, for Joel and Jalissa this wasn’t just a party; the reception continued to praise and glorify the Lord. Jalissa even prepared a special song dedicated to her mother in which she used American Sign Language to sing all the words. Joel got to enjoy a moment of dancing with his mother and one of his brothers who came all the way from Uganda.

Joel and Jalissa have dedicated their lives to Jesus and it was only fitting for them to intentionally dedicate their wedding day to Him as well.

Joel and Jalissa were married on May 18, 2019, at Harvest Church in Memphis, Tennessee.

#joelandjalissa

Being genuine and truly authentic in this day and age can be a hard mantra to live by. In the hype and sometimes chaos of your wedding day, emotions can run high, small details may seem like major decisions, and time being with friends and family can get put off until the last few minutes of the day.

Emily and Steven, however, made it a point to remind themselves to be completely true to who they are, which meant a private time with each other after the first look, which meant having pictures with Emily’s sweet pup, which meant being with friends and family throughout the day celebrating every second they had, and which meant being flexible and up for anything to make their special day one to reminder fondly.

The forecast said it would be raining all day, but someone “up there” was looking out for them because it only rained about 20 minutes during the afternoon. Emily looked incredible in her lovely wedding gown. Steven’s face said it all when he turned around and saw her in it. Their genuine love and tenderness toward one another allowed for seamless natural moments of affection unaltered by directed poses or prompts. They were truly at ease and completely comfortable with one another.

After the ceremony, the crowd moved across the street to the Tupelo Cotton Mill where everything was intricately decorated with gorgeous flowers and ornaments, with a floral chandelier as the crowning jewel. Everyone ate, drank, danced, laughed, and cheered to celebrate the newly married couple. Steven and Emily were married at First United Methodist Church on May 11, 2019, in Tupelo, Mississippi.

Love has a tendency to come at a time least expected. You could say that’s what happened for Austin and Macy. Macy was Austin’s son’s kindergarten teacher and Austin said that she was the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. Fast forward a little bit, and their wedding was a sweet sentimental ode to their small town of Louisville, Mississippi.

Macy’s wedding gown was immaculately designed with lace with sleeves that embraced around her shoulders. Austin looked sharp in his blue suit with colorful socks for a unique touch. Their wedding ceremony was held in the gorgeous First Methodist Church with their colors and flowers enhancing the beautiful colors of the stained glass windows all around them.

Their celebration that followed was at the Winston County Shrine Club which was incredibly decorated with a bold wooden arbor in the middle. Every detail of the day was perfect from the setting to the weather and from the family and friends to the dazzling tender hearted couple. Austin and Macy were married on April 27, 2019, at First Methodist Church of Louisville, Mississippi.

When you step into Old Waverly Golf Club, it seems like you step back in time. Huge elegant paintings hang on almost every inch of the walls. Large windows look out onto the vast landscapes surrounding the club. Elegance, classic, timeless seem to become tangible realities when one steps onto the grounds.

Elegance, classic, and timeless are also the best adjectives to describe the wedding day of HC and Anna. Anna beamed in her wedding gown and her radiance only escalated when she opened the crown jewel of her attire, an heirloom necklace given by HC. Exchanging intimate letters during their first look, nothing but joy and excitement permeated their expressions as they saw one another for the first time on their special day. The fragrance of fresh flowers and the fickle Mississippi Spring rain draped beautifully around the outside garden courtyard during the ceremony.

Providentially, the rain and thunder held off so that HC and Anna could have the ceremony of exquisite sentiment and delicate simplicity. Family and friends feasted and celebrated the new couple until it was time for them to drive off in spring rain. HC and Anna were married on April 6, 2019, at Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point, Mississippi.

Bryant and Hannah have the sweetest love story. They fell in love as they worked alongside one another at a Christian summer camp. There’s truly nothing like falling in love in the summer. Bryant and Hannah’s love, however, is centered around and upon the person of Jesus Christ. It was so evident on their wedding day that they were making a covenant with Him and with each other.

During their first look, you could see Bryant’s expression filled with joy and excitement that it was finally their wedding day. Hannah, surrounded by her sweet college friends and roommates, glowed and beamed with happiness and anticipation to begin her new chapter of life with the love of her life. As she walked down the aisle, she was greeted by her groom and the representation of Christ with a white cross above the mantle that her father and mother created for the special day.

After the ceremony, both parents of the bride and groom welcomed the new additions to their families with open arms. Without a doubt, Bryant and Hannah’s love, life, and marriage beautifully glorifies Jesus and it was such an honor to capture it on film. Bryant and Hannah were married on March 30, 2019, at Battle Mountain Farm in Franklin, Tennessee.

Sometimes when you encounter a couple, you walk away saying “They are perfect for one another.” For Christian and Emily, that statement is so true. They are both so kind, gentle, and complimentary that you truly do walk away saying that they are a perfect match.

On their sweet wedding day, it was apparent that family means the world to them. They had their sisters and brothers along with their nieces and nephews standing on the altar alongside them. The ceremony was performed by Emily’s father, making it even more a family-centered event. The reception at Green Gate Farmhouse added to the sweetness of the day with its stunning landscapes and exceptionally detailed elements.

For Christian and Emily, nothing else could have better than to have their family and close friends share and encourage them as they walked together into their new chapter of life with one another. Christian and Emily were married on March 23, 2019, at Kingston Assembly of God in Laurel, Mississippi.

Do you know that look that someone gives to the person that they have fallen in love with, that tender genuine look of care and captivation? That look of bewildered awe yet complete comfort? That’s the look that Bo had when he was around Jenna. Everyone could see their sincere affection and inspiring love that they have for one another. You could tell that not only did they love each other, but they were also best friends and happy companions. Their love encompassed all aspects of life.

Jenna was absolutely stunning in her elegant slim wedding gown. During their first look, there were tears of joy and giggles of giddiness. Surrounded by family and friends, their ceremony centered upon Christ’s call to commitment and holy covenant of man and woman becoming husband and wife. The reception was at McClain Lodge in Brandon, Mississippi and had a live band inside and a s’more station around a bond fire outside. Bo and Jenna were married on March 3, 2019, at Riverside Church in Flowood, Mississippi.

There’s a steadfast kind of love that is discovered for couples who have known each other and have walked through life together for a long time. For Dustin and Madison, they have discovered and beautifully displayed this kind of love and in the month of February of 2019, they decided to take the next step into marriage together.

Madison glowed in her beautiful wedding gown and Dustin looked great in his black tuxedo. As they read letters to one another, normally stoic and quiet Dustin revealed the underlying emotion and passion that he had for Madison and the anticipation of her finally becoming his bride and wife. It truly melted everyone’s hearts to watch their precious daughter, Parker, walk down the aisle right before her mom during the ceremony.

During the reception, both Madison, Dustin, and Parker had their certain cakes celebrating the event. As Madison danced with her dad, Dustin and Parker danced right alongside. The whole day was truly touching and heartwarming. Dustin and Madison were married on February 23, 2019, at The Antler in Tupelo, Mississippi.

“Who knew that a girl from Mississippi had to go all the way to Texas to find a husband. Who knew that out of all the girls in Texas, Steven had to go to Mississippi to find one worthy of his heart.” They say that distance makes the heart grow fonder, and for Steven and Kelsey, they wouldn’t let a few states stand in the way of their true love for one another.

On their wedding day, Kelsey looked stunning in her intricately crafted wedding gown designed by Willow Bride. Steven’s classic blue tuxedo was crowned with stylish diamond cuff links and buttons. The Historic First United Methodist Church in Tupelo never looked and sounded so beautiful during the ceremony. With gorgeous greenery hanging from the columns, lovely scented flowers draped from several pews, and the choir proceeding down the aisle singing “This is the Day”, everyone there enjoyed all their senses being involved.

Steven and Kelsey drove to the reception in an old fashioned car greeted by a stunningly decorated Cotton Mill. Thanks to Memphis Soul Revue, everyone danced the night away enjoying the company, the cakes, and the celebration. Steven and Kelsey were married on February 16, 2019 at First United Methodist in Tupelo, Mississippi.
