HALLEY + CODY | HATTIESBURG, MS
When I met Halley, I instantly knew she would be wonderful to work with! She’s such a ray of sunshine, and kind right down to the core. It was also easy for me to imagine that the man she had chosen to share her life with would be the best of the best, and even though I knew I wouldn’t get to meet Cody until wedding day, I felt as though I would instantly like him. And all of my instincts were correct - Cody was an absolute gem! He’s down to earth, easy going, a laugh a minute, and just a a great dude to know. Both teachers at Petal High School, they share a love for educating and inspiring the youth they get to work with everyday. Cody is a coach and Halley is his biggest fan! I couldn’t imagine a more perfect pair who is ready to tackle anything and everything life throws their way!
Halley and Cody celebrated their union at The Barn at Bridlewood and centered it around faith, family, and love. The bride chose blush as her main accent color and kept all of the days details classic and elegant. I was so inspired by the all of the little things Halley and Cody chose to include on their wedding day that were so closely connected to who they are not only as individuals but as a couple. From Halley’s cowboy boots to the Petal football themed grooms table Cody had, every little detail told their story so perfectly. I won’t lie - I cried buckets at their event and I know I wasn’t alone. This couple is loved and cherished by so many, and its no wonder - they are such a shining example of how Christ loves his church and wants us to love one another. My favorite part of the day had to be the toasts given by members of the bridal party at the reception. Laughs, tears, and stories from childhood were shared by the bride and grooms family and friends, and each tale was incredibly moving. They then danced the night away to beats played by DJ Redzone, the brides brother in law, and celebrated the most perfect day with those they love the most.
Halley and Cody - I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to find the right words to express how thankful I am to know the two of you. I feel like I’ve known you guys my whole life, so it’s hard for me to imagine that our friendship began just last year. You two love each other SO WELL, and will always keep each the other laughing. It was an honor and a privilege to stand by your sides as you said “I do” to forever. Even as I type these words, I can’t help but get teary eyed all over again just remembering your beautiful wedding day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing me to capture the most amazing moments of your lives and I can’t wait until our next shoot together! I hope your honeymoon was amazing and that you love looking back at your wedding day as much as I do! All my love and the biggest hugs, Shea
