Of all the different kinds of weddings we shoot, the ones at private residences are always a favorite! It's one sure way to have a wedding like no one else's. Marisa and Paul are a couple like no one else, and they would have had a unique wedding no matter where it took place, but their venue choice only added to their originality! They celebrated their love at Paul's grandfather's gorgeous farm in Mississippi. It was the perfect place for their union, and offered them the opportunity to really showcase who they are as a couple. We absolutely love them both, and unsurprisingly, we loved every detail of their wedding. We are so thrilled to share it with you today!

Courtney and Josh never had any real wedding photos. They tied the knot officially with a romantic elopement. When they returned home, they had a celebration to share their new marriage with friends and family. So when Courtney came to me about doing some portraits of the two of them, we were more than honored! The first time I talked to her, she told me that she wanted some beautiful wedding photos that she would be proud to hang on her walls. She joked that the "third time's a charm," and we hope she's right!

I always tell my grooms that Ed has their backs. I'll admit it. As a girl, I sometimes tend to get carried away with the bride. I mean, 90% of the wedding day is all about the bride, right? But one of the reasons I have Ed on my team is to remind me that the groom is in fact 50% of the day. You can't have a wedding without the groom!

We all watched the sky with anticipation. The weather was predicting over 80% chance of rain, and both the ceremony and reception were planned for outdoors. Lori and Kenny had taken a leap of faith and decided against the extra tent for the ceremony site. Rain or shine, they were getting married outside! Lori had a photo of her and Kenny's grandparents, who couldn't be with them, wrapped tightly around her bouquet, and Kenny later said that it was due to them that they had such great luck with the weather.
