So much in today’s post: a couple who chose one another in high school and weathered all of the ups and downs of a decade of life spent as boyfriend & girlfriend, that couple’s hometown showing up and showing out to celebrate these two and shower them with love, and all the classiness the South has to offer with an entire weekend executed just masterfully. Enjoy just these few photos from their day…

I think that feelings of gratitude for your soon-to-be spouse are something that are pretty common on your wedding day, but maybe even more so for this particular wedding. The day before Ellen & Mark’s wedding Mark and and two of his groomsmen (one being Ellen’s brother) got into a pretty bad car accident just hours before the rehearsal dinner. By the grace of God they all walked away from it with only a few scratches and were able to make it to the rehearsal dinner. When I showed up on Saturday, had someone not told me, I’m not sure I ever would’ve known anything had happened by the way everyone was acting. Although it was quite a scary thing to happen at any point in life much less the day before you get married, these two and their families were genuinely focused on the reason they had all gathered together and celebrated this new marriage as well as I’ve ever seen. I can’t say enough how much I loved getting to photograph these guys and their families. Ellen & Mark, I hope these photos do justice to how beautiful your wedding day was and remind you of the gratitude that you have for each other. Enjoy!

If you don’t feel all warm and fuzzy from the love that’s just so evident between this couple in these photos then clearly you need a hug. ;)

I didn’t really know Mary Word and Kenny before their wedding day, but what a surprise to find a pair of people who are kind, unassuming, and just so easy to be around. They put together a wedding that showcased some of Jackson’s best vendors, venues, and, well, people. I loved getting to be a part.

Mary Grace is one of the most expressive, social, easily likable people you’ll ever meet who has a career at a local news station, which she couldn’t be more cut out for. Reed is a humble, thoughtful guy that’s so good at playing the guitar that his wedding cake was a life-size replica of a guitar, and he even brewed three different beers himself for his guests to enjoy at the reception. These guys are a class act, and it was nothing but a good time getting to work with them over the course of their engagement. Wishing you guys many years of laughter, good music, and homebrewed beer!

If there’s been a theme to weddings this spring/summer, it’s been RAIN. For whatever reason (plenty of reasons, I’m sure, that I’m not smart enough to understand), we’ve been faced with either the threat of storms or wedding days with straight up pouring rain.

But. For some people, they just press on undeterred. I showed up to Meagan & Clark’s wedding in Quitman, MS, and asked Meagan if they had made a decision about the weather and she quickly replied, “Yep, the reception is still going to be at my house. And we’re not gonna worry about the rain.” And that was that. And yes, it rained HARD at their wedding reception but there’s just no doubt that it didn’t take one thing away from the party.
