Cleveland, Mississippi Wedding | Mississippi Wedding Photographer
I absolutely loved this beautiful, rainy, Cleveland, Mississippi wedding day! Looking back through the photos, I just found myself smiling! Even with the craziness of an all day rain storm, Hamp & Kaylyn had the best attitudes. Truly, they were both just so thankful to be married & to celebrate with their friends & family! The photos from their day reflect their joy & the love they have for one another!
PREPARING FOR THE WEDDING
Hamp & Kaylyn chose to hold their wedding ceremony at the beautiful Our Lady of Victories Church in Cleveland! It truly was a beautiful location for the ceremony. The church was also the location where the girls got ready for the day. Taylor Mann & Brianna Vickers did an absolutely incredible job on hair & makeup! We started the day capturing photos of them getting ready together, along with photos of their gorgeous wedding details.
After Kaylyn was ready & in her dress, it was time for first looks! We started with a fun & sweet first look with her bridesmaids at the church! Next was a first look with her dad, which was absolutely precious. And last was, of course, Kaylyn’s first look with Hamp. This moment was even sweeter than I imagined it would be! It was still pouring rain at the time of the first look, so we did have to be creative. But we found a beautiful location under an awning at the Cleveland Country Club. Hamp had the best reaction to seeing Kaylyn in her dress. The stress & chaos from the rain could never have taken away from how perfect this moment was. I definitely think this was the best part of the day!
Hamp & Kaylyn were so amazing during their bride & groom portraits! They braved the storm with bubble umbrellas, & trusted us to capture these moments for them in the craziness of the downpour. I’m so thankful that they did! I love their bride & groom photos so much. Thankfully, Kaylyn’s bridesmaids were ready to help out after the portraits by blow drying her dress!
CEREMONY & CELEBRATION!
The wedding ceremony was absolutely beautiful! There was gorgeous music (including a beautiful solo from Kaylyn’s sister), along with scripture reading. The church looked stunning & was the perfect place for all of their family & friends to gather together to watch them become one!
After the ceremony, there was a miraculous break in the rain! We pulled Hamp & Kaylyn out for a few more portraits as the sun set. I’m so thankful that we did! I truly love the portraits we were able to get of them in the rain, but I was happy to add some golden hour portraits of them right after the wedding!
The reception at the Cleveland Country Club was so much fun!! It started with a confetti entrance for the newlyweds! Then, they went straight into some perfect first dances & cake cutting! Style Entertainment took over from there & kept everyone dancing all night! I really had such a great time, & know everyone else did too!
Hamp & Kaylyn had a sparkler send off to end the night! They had the cutest getaway car that we had to grab some pictures with as well! At the end of the day, I was just so thankful to have been there to celebrate the Williamsons! Yes, the rain was stressful, but it didn’t take away from the joy & celebration of the wedding! So happy for the Williamsons & wishing them all the best!!
