I’ve been looking forward to capturing Kenley & Ben’s downtown Louisville, Mississippi wedding day ever since I first talked with Kenley right before Christmas last year! She was SO sweet & excited to be marrying her best friend, & I just knew I was going to love every minute of working with her & Ben. After meeting them both in person at their engagement session, I was certain that their wedding day was going to be beautiful & glorify the Lord in every way! Kenley & Ben are full of joy & love for each other. I’m so excited to share all of my favorites from their downtown Louisville, Mississippi wedding!!

When we arrived at The Mason Boutique Hotel where Kenley & her bridesmaids were getting ready, we were greeted by Kenley’s friends who were the sweetest! They were so excited for their friend on her big day!! Kenley was just glowing as she got into her dress! We took a few bridal portraits before we headed to the church for the first look. When Ben saw his soon-to-be wife, he couldn’t hug her fast enough! They were so happy during all of their bride & groom portraits – it was a dream!!

Their ceremony was beautiful & glorified the Lord in every way. From the songs of worship to the message given by their pastor (who happens to be a past Katelyn Anne Groom!), God’s presence was evident as Kenley & Ben committed their marriage to Him! Their guests showered them with confetti as they walked out of the church, then everyone walked just a few doors down to the reception at one of my favorites, Market Cafe.

The food was incredible as always, & Cups N Cakes Bakery made the most beautiful bride’s cake & the coolest groom’s cake! Kenley & Ben met at Mississippi State, so it was only fitting that Ben have a cowbell cake surrounded by all of their real cowbells! Kenley & Ben even had one of their engagement photos painted onto a cowbell – so cute! They danced to “Islands in the Stream” for their first dance, then Style Entertainment provided the most fun entertainment as everyone danced the night away & had a blast!!

Kenley & Ben – I’ve been so grateful to work with y’all during this season! You two are a light & your marriage is going to impact so many people. Continue to seek the Lord as you go through life together. He is forever faithful!! I hope y’all will love reliving your beautiful wedding day through these photos for years to come!!
