What a joy-filled day this was!! From the moment I met Hayden & Hunter, I knew they were a special couple & their wedding day would be just as special! Their engagement session back in May was such a dream – it was so evident that they were best friends & ready to become husband & wife!! I was excited when Saturday arrived & their big day was finally here!! Their Louisville, Mississippi wedding was just the BEST!!
I always love capturing weddings in Louisville. It’s the cutest Mississippi town with the sweetest people, & I love getting to see past couples, parents, & vendor friends at every wedding I do there! When we arrived at The Mason Boutique Hotel, we met both Hayden & Hunter’s precious moms who were so welcoming to us. As soon as we walked into the suite where Hayden & her girls were getting ready, we were greeted with the biggest smiles & so much excitement!
Hayden is seriously one of the most joyful brides I’ve ever gotten to capture! You can just feel the joy of the Lord every time you’re with her, & she shows everyone she meets His love & grace. Hunter compliments Hayden perfectly with the biggest smile, especially when he’s with his bride! Their first look was my favorite moment of the day. Hunter turned around to see Hayden & said “good grief!!” when he saw how stunning she looked!! They were laughing & having a blast together all day!
Hayden & Hunter are both very close with their families & come from legacies of long marriages! At their reception, Hayden & Hunter displayed portraits of both of their parents on their wedding days which was such a special tribute. What was SO amazing, as Hayden’s dad shared during his toast, was that ALL 8 of Hayden & Hunter’s grandparents were in attendance. One of my favorites photos of the day is all of them on the front row during the ceremony! I hope the families will cherish it forever!
Their ceremony brought the Lord glory & was a beautiful reminder of the marriage between Christ & His church. I loved that Hayden & Hunter shared communion together as their first act as husband & wife. After they excited the church with all of their family & friends cheering them on, everyone drove right around the block to a beautiful reception at The Mason Boutique Hotel! My favorites Market Cafe & Cups N Cakes Bakery provided the best food & cakes, & Hayden & Hunter shared their first dance as everyone watched with joy! As they went around the room taking time to speak to all of their guests, I couldn’t help but think how amazing of a couple they are! I know the Lord has awesome plans in store for them!!
Hayden & Hunter – I can’t thank you both enough for giving me the honor of being your photographer! I have loved getting to know you both & getting to capture this season for y’all. As you begin your marriage, continue to trust the Lord every day! He will always be faithful!! I hope these photos will bring y’all so much joy for years & years to come!!
