What a way to start the year!! Anna Beth & Austin’s Jackson, Mississippi wedding at Fondren Church was my first wedding of 2023, & it was timeless, classic, & so stunning! You may remember these two from their fall engagement session at Austin’s family land. I have been looking forward to getting Anna Beth & Austin in front of my camera again ever since then! But this time, they were finally the bride & groom!!
It was really special to me to get to capture their wedding at my own church! I’m a little biased, but my church is truly beautiful & was the perfect backdrop for Anna Beth & Austin’s traditional-style. I LOVED every detail – from the classic all-white florals & touches of blue to Anna Beth’s modern-style dress & shoes, everything was so much fun to capture.
After shooting all of the details, it was so sweet to capture Anna Beth getting into her dress with the help of her mom & sister. When her dad saw her, they were both overcome with emotion. Anna Beth & Austin also shared a first look, then read their personalized vows & opened their gifts to each other. They were both surprised when they gifted each other Bibles – the best way to start their marriage!
After the most fun photos with their wedding party & family, their ceremony was worshipful & brought glory to the Lord! I’m so excited that Anna Beth & Austin want to seek Him together as they begin this journey of being husband & wife. Following the ceremony, we travelled to Bridlewood of Madison for the reception where guests were greeted with a champagne bar & the prettiest food displays. I loved capturing Anna Beth & Austin with all of their family & friends as they danced the night away!
Mr. & Mrs. Waldrup – y’all are finally MARRIED!! It was truly an honor to capture y’all’s big day!! I’m so happy for y’all & am praying for y’all in this newlywed season. Continue to surrender your marriage to the Lord – I know He has amazing plans in store for y’all!
