A Mississippi Destination Wedding

        On May 23rd in Natchez, Mississippi these two were married at the Dunlieth Plantation. It was a great weekend from their rehearsal dinner to the end of the wedding. It had been pouring the day before and we were forced to rehearse inside but we all said many prayers and we had the most perfect weather for this outside event.

        The groom is one of our second shooters so I was so excited when he asked me to shoot this for him. It is always a privilege when anther photographer likes our work enough to have us be there for them on their wedding day.

        Upon arriving in Natchez we (my husband accompanied me) were greeted in our room with the sweetest gift basket complete with the couple’s favorite drinks. On her wedding day we had to keep tracking down her favorite, Coca-Cola, as the property was a Pepsi kinda place. The bride arrived on a horse drawn carriage and her Dad married them as the groom’s Father asked who gave her hand in marriage. The best part – the romantics! These two were ready for some time alone and we took complete advantage of the lovely property. Here are some of my favorites but really, watch their slide show because the entire day was just beautiful.
