Rebekah + Alex // Louisville, MS Wedding

One of the best parts of our job is getting to know some amazing people who we may never have had the chance to meet otherwise. We have been really blessed to work with a lot of families who always gladly welcome us into one of the most important days of their lives! That is what made the wedding of Rebekah and Alex even more special than usual. Almost one year earlier, we filmed Alex’s brother’s wedding at Pierce Castle! We even filmed a special moment that happened at the reception between the couple and were able to include it near the beginning of their wedding film. It was really great getting to work with familiar faces and celebrate another happy wedding day with this sweet family! 

We started our adventure by traveling up to Louisville, MS to Legion State Park, where the wedding was being held the next day. We stayed in a little rustic cabin that sat overlooking the lake. The next morning we woke up early to get a shot of the fog rolling across the water- definitely worth it. When we arrived at the cottage where the bridal party was getting ready, Rebekah shared a special first look with her father followed by her groom, Alex. We got to go around and explore some of the park for their portraits- such a peaceful place.

The ceremony took place near the cottage in a little field surrounded by big, beautiful pine trees. The couple’s family and close friends gathered for this intimate celebration as leaves were quietly falling in the background- a perfect fall wedding. Before exchanging their vows, Alex and Rebekah asked their guests to actively participate in a "blessing of the rings" by passing around their set of wedding bands so each person could personally touch the rings and say a quick prayer for their marriage. Another reason why this was so special was because all four sets of grandparents were able to attend the wedding. As you find out in the film, the wedding was officiated by Alex's grandfather who shared heartfelt words during the ceremony. After the ceremony, everyone gathered for a beautifully decorated, brunch reception at the lodge. The bride and groom exited through a tunnel of flower petals on their departure. It was a beautiful day!!

Cassie + Jake // Macon, MS Wedding

This week we are sharing the love story of Cassie and Jake! They tied the knot at a beautiful, private residence near Macon. The weather was perfect for an outdoor wedding! We started the day by capturing Cassie and her bridesmaids getting ready upstairs in the huge lodge-style home. She shared a priceless moment with her mom who helped button her dress then walked out to the opening of the stairs for her father to see her for the first time that day! One of the sweetest moments of the day was definitely the first look between the bride and groom. Jake waited patiently at the end of the aisle with Cassie’s flowers. When she tapped on his shoulder for him to turn around, the look on Jake’s face was priceless. Since the weather was so perfect and there was a lot of extra time in the schedule, we were able to fly our drone a lot on this day! Not only did we get shots of the property and surrounding areas, but we also got a lot of the bride and groom standing under a giant tree that we thought was beautiful. Definitely some of our favorite shots of the day! The ceremony was held in the backyard with the bridal party positioned under the porch and the guests’ seating in the grass. There was a wooden arch structure at the end of the aisle with double doors which made for a grand entrance for the bridal party. There were hundreds of guests at this wedding- many people had to stand when they ran out of seats. You could tell Cassie and Jake are really loved by their family and friends! The bride was escorted into the ceremony by her father in a vintage car. The couple exchanged vows and rings in a very sweet Christian ceremony. Cassie’s best friend sang a special song as they lit a unity candle. When they kissed and were announced husband and wife, the smiles on their faces brought joy to everyone there! The couple exited the ceremony in the car, and we loved how she stuck her bouquet out the window! The reception was held both inside the house and outside on the back porch/ tent. There was a lot to take in here- a live band, dancing, photo booth, football game on the tv, and plenty of people! Cassie and Jake ended the night with a big sparkler exit which we also filmed with our drone. They had a lot of talented vendors at this wedding and hope to cross paths again!
