Victoria & Cole's day was SO full of joy & was such a beautiful display of the Lord's faithfulness! They've known each other since middle school, & after years of dating, they finally became husband & wife in the most beautiful beach setting on the Mississippi coast this past Saturday!! My favorite parts of their day were the moments when I got to capture just the two of them & witness the amazing peace & confidence they had in becoming one! Rain had been in the forecast all week, so it wasn't certain that their dream of an outdoor ceremony on the beach would be able to happen, but amazingly the rain went completely around us & we truly couldn't have imagined a more beautiful setting!!
To top off the amazing weather, the Lord gave us a rainbow right before the ceremony & the most perfect sunset to end their day!! God is so good, & I know that regardless of what the day looked like, Victoria & Colbee would have been just as excited to be getting married!! It was so awesome to see how many of their family members & friends traveled from so far away to be there with them!!
I got to work with the most INCREDIBLE team of vendors which made the day that much better!! Bethany of Oak Weddings & Events did an absolutely amazing job coordinating the entire day! She made this destination wedding happen go off without a hitch, & I'm SO glad I got to work with her again! Willow Blu did such a beautiful job with all of the florals for the day, & they were so perfect for the beach ceremony!! I love seeing a team of vendors come together to make a wedding day amazing for the bride & groom!!
One of my favorite moments from the day was the moment Victoria & Colbee saw each other for their first look & then read letters they had written to each other. Victoria had been writing letters to Colbee in a journal for a couple of years, & was able to finally give him the journal that ended with her letter to him on their wedding day! So so sweet!! The way they love each other is such a beautiful example & I cannot wait to see all that God has in store for their marriage!!
Victoria & Colbee - thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your amazing wedding weekend!! We had SO much fun capturing your love & joy, & I hope these photos will be the sweetest reminder of the day y'all finally became husband & wife!!
