Southern & Sweet Spring Wedding at Cold Springs

BRITTNEY + ERIC | COLLINS, MS

On a perfect sunny day two weekends ago, Brittney and Eric said “I do” to forever! The forecast called for rain and chilly temps, but the Lord had other plans. Sunshine and warm weather was enjoyed by all who watched the two become husband and wife. The day started with the bride handwriting notes to everyone near and dear to her. Then, with her bride tribe, she was pampered by the talented staff at Loose Ends Salon. The bride selected floral robes for her bridesmaids, mother, little sister, and future mother in law as their getting ready outfits, and they were OH SO CUTE! While Brittney finished hair and makeup, I slipped out to photograph her gorgeous details. She took so much care in selecting the details that would tell her and Eric’s story. A variation of shades of blue and pink decorated the day for the two with the bridesmaids in dresses from David’s Bridal in quartz and the guys in navy suits from John White, Ltd. The bridal flowers were the perfect touch to add to this already sweet southern wedding. White roses, hydrangeas, sea holly, eucalyptus, and sand dollars made for the most beautiful bouquets and boutonnieres. As a tribute to her father, a local farmer, the bride even added a a hint of cabbage to her bouquet. Her grandmothers handkerchief was wrapped delicately around the stems. As Brittney slipped into her stunning lace dress from Imaginations with intricate beading, she donned a single strand of white pearls around her neck that also belonged to her grandmother. A pair of blue jewel earrings and a pair of powder blue flats gave the bride her something blue. After tearful first looks with her father and bridesmaids, her mother carefully placed her cathedral length veil into her hair and readied her to walk down the aisle. As her bridesmaids prayed over her, with her family’s heads carefully bowed around, I was overwhelmed with the love in the room. The prayers were not only for Brittney, but for her future husband and the family that God would hopefully bless them with one day. After the prayers were said, it was time for Brittney to take her fathers arm and walk toward her best friend.

Not an eye was dry in the church during Brittney and Eric’s ceremony. The couple wrote their own vows and lovingly read those aloud to one another. Every word was laced in love and devotion. The wedding ceremony also consisted of the Lord’s supper and a sand ceremony. As the bride laid her head on her husband’s shoulder as prayers were said, I took a moment to say my own special prayer for the couple. Marriage is such a blessing. I prayed that their lives would be full, happy, and that they would find constant companionship in one another. That they would never go to bed angry at the other, and that the Lord would watch over and guide them throughout the rest of their days.

After kissing his bride, Eric took her hand and walked back down the aisle with his wife at his side. Cheers were heard all around and the two shared a private moment alone before joining the reception where a gorgeous 4 tier wedding cake prepared by Monkey Kisses was enjoyed by all. The bride opted for a nontraditional bouquet toss where instead of throwing a bouquet for a single lady to catch, she handed out individual roses to them. After handing out the roses, she prayed with them for the future wives they would be and that the right Godly man would come along to walk with them as their partners in life.

The couples send off was so much fun! Heart shaped confetti decorated the two as they walked towards their getaway car: a vintage red camaro! It was the most amazing end to the most amazing day. I stole Brittney and Eric away for their husband and wife portraits during golden hour, and every single shot was breathtaking. These two love each other so completely! The magic just happens when they’re together, and I feel so blessed that I was the one they chose to capture their love! Brittney and Eric - I just adore you guys! You’re shining beacons for Christ and your love is so pure! Love one another as our Lord loves his church, and your days will be full and truly blessed. I am so thankful to know you. It was such an honor to be by your sides as you joined the married folks club. Welcome, and thank you for the opportunity to serve you! Big hugs and all of my love, Shea

Boho Inspired Wedding at The Venue at Roseoak

BIJAN + BLAKE | PETAL, MS

I looked forward to Bijan and Blake’s wedding from the moment I first met them earlier this year! They are down to earth, joyful, and immediately fill the room with good vibes when they enter it. When I arrived to the Venue at Roseoak, Bijan and her squad were welcoming and couldn’t have been more excited for their best girl. She put so much thought and careful planning into her wedding day over the year, and to say she was ready to marry the love of her life is an understatement. Bijan was READY which made me even more excited about capturing their special day. The girls laughed and reminisced over mimosas while I hung out with them in the bridal suite. It was the best of times, truly, and I enjoyed soaking up all of the love in the room.

After the bridal party was dressed, and it was time for their first look, we walked out onto the balcony of the second floor of the main house. While Bijan’s MOH went to get Blake, I watched my sweet friend pause for a moment and close her eyes. She steeled her hands against the window in front of her and took a deep breath in. I remember that feeling from my own wedding day. The savoring of the moment. You have to grab onto as quick as you can because the rest of the day goes by so fast. BUT if you can just be in these next few minutes and remember every detail of the look on your future husbands face of seeing you in your wedding gown - yeah, that’s the good stuff right there. I felt her do that. Her serene countenance was breathtaking. And as they held hands and read their hand written notes from one another, the tears filled Blake’s eyes as Bijan beamed from ear to ear. Her joy was palpable and Blake’s emotion was moving. Needless to say, I had all of the feels - especially as he turned to see the vision that his future wife was in her dress. As the two embraced and the tears rolled down their cheeks, I was also teary eyed. I couldn’t have been happier for the two of them. From that moment on, it was go time!

Bijan and Blake said “I do” in the late evening just as the sun went down in front of their dearest family and friends. The two partook in communion and had their dear friend preside over their ceremony. It was beautiful. Mr. and Mrs. Fritz strutted down the aisle as their loved ones applauded and cheered and as I jumped up and down like a crazy person for them at the end of ceremony. All that was left to do was PAR-TAY!

The two had the best of times on the dance floor with each other and with their friends and family. They cut the cake, had their champagne toast, and the BEST food courtesy of Le Envie’ Creative Catering. Bijan and Blake laughed and danced the night away underneath the stars on a beautiful late November evening, and I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect ending to a more perfect day for these two sweethearts. The couple made their exit underneath sparklers as a caravan of loved ones surrounded them wishing them well.

Bijan and Blake, I will always be grateful that you came into my life. You guys make each other so happy, and it was so much fun being with you as you made your journey to becoming husband and wife. I never thought I’d be so lucky to have my very own bride tribe. Thank you for letting me be part of yours, BB. I hope you love these images from your wedding day as much as I do. All of my love and the biggest hugs, Shea
