It took everything in my being to pry my eyes away from this morning’s gorgeous Elizabeth Fillmore gown, but pry I did and found a delightfully glamorous affair before me. It’s one of those classic beauties with hints of the couple’s Southern roots and a million images by Kristy Dickerson Photography that are as timeless as they are beautiful. The dock images alone are enough to send this blogger into wedding heaven and I’ve already mentioned my all out love affair with the dress. This is indeed a fairytale straight out of Mississippi. Hightail it over to the gallery for even more.
From Kristy Dickerson Photography… The wedding ceremony took place at a small church in downtown Ocean Springs, Mississippi and the reception took place at her grandparent’s estate. Both grandparents recently passed away before the wedding. The bride’s mother grew up on the property and the bride remembers going to the home to gather with family for the holidays. The bride got ready in her grandparents old room. It was filled with their gorgeous furniture, her grandma’s old perfume, and family pictures. The home is amazing and is located right on the bay in Ocean Springs. The home was filled with family pictures, wedding pictures, etc.. Guests could walk around inside the home to see all of this.
The bride wore an Elizabeth Fillmore gown and her veil was her mother’s that was originally from Italy and was handmade. The reception was located in the backyard overlooking the water. It was decorated with a vintage feel of soft yellows/soft purples, old oak trees, bird cages, wood/bark, and the list just goes on. Once the reception got going and night fell, they had about a 10 minute prelude of fireworks over the water coming from the dock.
