Ocean Springs Wedding from Taylor Lord Photography

I’ve got a major soft spot for this wedding. Not only is it covered from beginning to end in the prettiest pink you’ve ever seen, but it just so happens to have taken place in my backyard. Well, almost. You see this beach is my beach – the beach I walk along every week. Taylor Lord Photography did it proud by capturing it’s beauty – along with the rest of the stunning details from this big day – and I’m soaking up every ray of sunshine in the gallery right now!

From the stunning bride… To say this was our perfect day would be an understatement. Southern Mississippi weather is very unpredictable. It rained and rained the week leading up to our big day. But on our wedding day, the sky opened up and in perfect harmony, the rays were shining down on us and created a completely magical experience. It truly was a dream come true!

I will never forget the moment I turned the corner with my mother to walk down the aisle, and seeing my future husband for the first time. It absolutely took my breath away and he stole my heart when I saw the tears of joy in his eyes. So Romantic!

From the first moments of planning our wedding, we knew we wanted a Southern wedding with subtle hints of Kentucky Derby charm, as our wedding was actually on Kentucky Derby Day. Another great reason to have all your friends and family join together. My husband grew up in Kentucky and most of our family and friends traveled from out of state and even from different countries to join in on our wedding day!

I was attracted to different shades of pink and grey, modern elements, and DIY projects. My husband even built our arbor! I was blown away when I saw the set up of our ceremony, and to think that he made it himself was even more special. I can’t even begin to describe the feeling of how amazing the ceremony site was. He’s amazing!

One of the most important things to us was that our guest to feel as blessed as we were to have them join us on that day. I wanted everyone to feel included. We decided to have mini cakes as centerpieces on the table, to be conversation pieces. We brought in old pictures of our family members as testaments to those we lost and those whose marriages had last the test of time and set a great example for our life ahead.

The whole day I was overwhelmed with love. Love that Keith and I share for each other. And the love seen in our friends and family. Our hearts were warmed forever and our memories will always be of that magical day!

Mississippi Wedding from Shane Snider Photography

Oh, how I heart a backyard wedding. There’s nothing so sweet or so very sentimental than saying “I do” at your childhood home. Add in some gorgeous outdoor design and a handful of tree-hung chandeliers, and you’ve got a wedding of dreamy proportions. Shane Snider sent over all the swoon-worthy goodness and Heart Stone Films caught the video you just mustn’t miss.

From the Bride…Clif and I were married by his childhood pastor in April at his parents home in the front yard underneath the tree that he grew up climbing in Mississippi. The reception was held underneath the old oak trees in the side yard. It was incredibly important for my husband to be married in his home state of Mississippi, where all his family could be present and he has such a strong connection to his childhood home, we thought it would be the perfect location. Not to mention, it gave his parents an excuse to do some extra landscaping.

We both are lovers of everything antique and it was very important to me that we include that in our wedding. I have always loved cameos and wanted them to be a central part of the wedding so we used a cameo on all the letterpress pieces. We also both didn’t want to cover up the natural beauty of the land, but wanted to enhance it, so we did not use a tent. We hung chandeliers in the trees and hung birdcages, antique ribbon and vintage paintings in the trees. For the ceremony we asked the guests to gather their favorite herbs and dried florals from the antique tea cups at the ceremony entrance and either keep them for themselves or shower us as we departed the ceremony. Prior to the ceremony, guests were treated to mint juleps and sweet tea.

For the reception, guests dined under the oak trees on a family style meal of fried chicken, beef brisket, turnip greens, macaroni and cheese, corn souffle, and spicy green beans all served in antique dishes. The wedding cake featured different flavors on different layers, strawberry shortcake and orange cream in addition to mini pies. Each table arrangement was accentuated with vintage books, antique glass, birdcages and fresh fruit. At each place setting, guests were given a jar of fig preserves made from the fig tree in the front yard.

Jackson Wedding Film from Nathan Willis Wedding Films

“Here’s to your first love being your last love.” How stinking cute is that? That is what one of the guests at this wedding wrote to the couple. They were wed in a sweet as can be soiree in Jackson, and our lovely LBBer Nathan Willis Wedding Films was there to capture the joy of the day in one of our favorite ways possible – with some extra fabulous wedding cinematography. So sit back and take it in this morning my loves, because it’s a good one.

Trotter and I were headed down to New Orleansthe Mardi Gras Marathon and my 30th birthday. All I wanted to do for my birthday was to go to Jackson Square to have coffee and beignets. So that morning we walked to Cafe Du Monde and enjoyed our breakfast. Afterward, we walked around the square and as we passed the Cathedral, Trotter lead me into the park to a bench. We sat down and just took in the morning. Trotter asked me, “Do you know what I want?” I said, “No what?” He then got down on his knee and said “I want you to marry me!” At that moment I couldn’t even see my ring through my waterfall of tears.

We decided to have the wedding at The South because we thought it was the best location to hold both the wedding and the reception. It is a beautiful old warehouse that was renovated with exposed bricks and beams. We are Christians and wanted a church wedding but realized you don’t have to be in a church for it to be religious because the good Lord would be with us wherever we were. Plus Wendy Putt is the caterer for The South so it was a pretty easy decision.

I wanted an elegantly vintage wedding. I sat down with my sister Kendall Poole, who was my wedding planner, and her assistant Emily and we brainstormed. We looked through magazines, websites, and, of course, Pintrest. Being honest, I was not a traditional bride. I asked my sister to take care of all the details. I wanted to focus more on my groom and our marriage. I had a few things I really wanted but left most of it up to my sister.
