Wedding Day at The Raymond Venue | Mississippi Wedding Photographer
This wedding day at The Raymond Venue for Ryan & Kodi was absolutely perfect! And so much fun!
I’ve actually known Kodi & since high school! We graduated together 10 years ago (which is hard to believe 😅), & it was such a joy to get to reconnect with her for her wedding day! Kodi is the kindest person, & I was so honored when she reached out to me about capturing her wedding. I loved every moment of working with her & Ryan!
There were so many sweet moments from their wedding day, & I’m beyond excited to be sharing my favorites on the blog! 🤍
PREPARING FOR THE WEDDING
We met Kodi & her bridesmaids in the gorgeous bridal suite at The Raymond! It’s such a perfect space to get ready for the day! I also had a lot of fun running around the venue shooting detail shots! Kodi had a beautiful vision for her day & I loved seeing how it all came together!
Once Kodi was ready, she shared some sweet first looks with her bridesmaids & dad! She was such a stunning bride & I loved seeing everyone’s reaction to her in her dress! Also had to pause to take some beautiful bridal shots of her around The Raymond😍
The sweetest moment of the day was Kodi’s first look with Ryan! They were both so excited to see each other! Ryan was just in awe of how beautiful his bride was. His reaction to seeing her in her dress was priceless–the photos speak for themselves
From there, we got to take some stunning portraits of Ryan, Kodi, & their bridal party! Something I love about The Raymond Venue is that it’s right in the middle of the cutest downtown area. There are so many beautiful locations for portraits! We also had the most incredible weather and lighting! It was a fall wedding day dream come true!
CEREMONY & RECEPTION
The ceremony took place outside & was so lovely! The gospel was preached throughout the ceremony, & Ryan and Kodi chose to share communion together as husband and wife. They were covered in prayer & celebrated by family & friends as they officially became Mr. & Mrs. Jackson!
We had some time after the ceremony to take some more portraits of the two of them! I absolutely adore these photos! I love the pure joy they shared after just getting married!
The reception was so much fun! This is always the best part of a wedding day! It’s just great for everyone to finally be able to relax & celebrate together! Ryan & Kodi are surrounded by some incredible family & friends! Loved getting to be a part of such a fun celebration!
We ended the night with a sparkler exit & the cutest getaway car!! Ryan & Kodi really are two of the kindest people & I could not be more excited for them as they enter into this new season of life! Congratulations x10000 to the Jacksons 🥳
