Wedding Day at The Barn at Bridlewood | Mississippi Wedding Photographer

This wedding day at The Barn at Bridlewood for Chandler & Hope Mantooth was absolutely perfect! Bridlewood of Hattiesburg is so beautiful & the fall colors this day were breathtaking! But, of course, the best part was seeing the pure joy Chandler & Hope had as they finally got to celebrate their wedding day!

Preparing for the Wedding

I met Hope & her bridesmaids at the bridal suite at Bridlewood! It was such a perfect place to prepare for the day! I always love to photograph the details & “bridal prep” at the start of a wedding day. Hope looked absolutely beautiful! Her hair & makeup were stunning, & her wedding dress was classic & timeless.

Chandler & Hope chose to do a first look before the ceremony. They shared this moment at the ceremony site at Bridlewood. It was so sweet, & I loved seeing how excited Chandler was to see his soon-to-be wife🥹 I also love that they chose this time to read their vows to each other. It was a beautiful, private moment for just the two of them!

After the first look, it was time for all the photos! My favorite photos were bride & groom portraits around the venue. Like I said at the beginning, the fall colors were just breathtaking! It was supposed to be a rainy day, but it ended up being clear & beautiful! This made it so easy for us to capture beautiful photos all around Bridlewood. After bride & groom portraits, we were also able to capture all bridal party and family photos as well! This meant that we were done with everything before the ceremony started! Everyone had some time to relax before it was time for Chandler & Hope to get married!

Ceremony & Reception

One of the reasons that Hope was so drawn to The Barn at Bridlewood was that she loved the hanging lights over the ceremony site! And they were absolutely beautiful as Chandler & Hope got married right as the sun set. The entire ceremony was so lovely & romantic! It really felt like Hope’s vision for her wedding came to life!

After the ceremony, everyone finally got to celebrate & relax at the reception! You could so clearly see how happy Chandler & Hope were to finally be married!! I loved seeing them get to enjoy this time with their family & friends!

We also had some fun at the end of the night capturing some beautiful couple’s portraits of Chandler & Hope by the lights. It was a bit of a challenge for me as a photographer, but I could not love the end result more! These photos were all so romantic & timeless, I’m so happy to being sharing my favorites here on the blog!

Beyond thankful that I was able to celebrate Mr. & Mrs. Mantooth!! Wishing them all the happiness in the world! 🥳
