timeless winter wedding in Mississippi

I’m SO excited to share my favorites from my last wedding of the year!! Connor & McKenzie are MARRIED, & they are just the sweetest!! When I first met them at their engagement session this summer, I knew they were a special couple. They’re high school sweethearts & have been planning their timeless winter wedding in Mississippi for over a year & a half, so they were beyond thankful that their big day was finally here!!

Some of my favorite moments from this day included McKenzie sharing a first look with her dad as well as her two older brothers! She had gifts for her entire family, as well as all of the wedding party, & even gave me & my assistant gifts at the end of the night. McKenzie is truly one of the most thoughtful brides I’ve ever worked with! I’m SO thankful she’s a Katelyn Anne bride!!

When Connor got to see McKenzie for their first look, he was overcome with joy! We were able to take lots of portraits before the rain that we’d been hoping would stay away finally came. It rained on & off right up until the ceremony was about to start, & we were so thankful it stopped just in time! When McKenzie & her dad started down the aisle, the sky turned from cloudy & grey to the most beautiful pink sunset. I truly believe the Lord was reminding us of His faithfulness & goodness!! What a gift!!

Connor & McKenzie’s family & friends had a blast celebrating with them at their reception! McKenzie & her mom had put together so many cute details including a hot chocolate bar which was perfect for their winter wedding day. I truly think McKenzie’s sweet mama didn’t leave the dance floor for one second!! She was having a blast & was so happy for her daughter & new son-in-law!

Mr. & Mrs. Williams – congrats!! I feel SO honored that I’ve gotten to be y’all’s photographer during this season. Y’all are truly an amazing couple, & I can’t wait to see what God has in store for your marriage!! Enjoy your honeymoon & your first “married Christmas!!”
