Timeless Spring Wedding at Bellawood | Mississippi Wedding Photographer

As a Mississippi wedding photographer, I have the pleasure of capturing moments that become cherished memories, and Kennon and Mari Margaret’s wedding at Bellawood was no exception. This fun, sweet, and laid-back couple shared a day filled with love, laughter, and beautiful details that perfectly complemented their personalities and chemistry. Today, I’m thrilled to share the highlights and my favorite moments from their classic and timeless spring wedding.

A Perfect Match Made in Mississippi

I’ve known Kennon since high school, but had the pleasure of meeting Mari Margaret after they were engaged. From the moment I saw them together, it was clear they were perfect for each other. Their laid-back nature and great chemistry made their wedding not only beautiful but also incredibly fun. It’s always a joy to work with couples who are truly in sync, and these two made my job as their photographer such an easy & joyful experience!

Bellawood: A Dream Venue

Bellawood, with its stunning bridal suite and handsome groom’s suite, provided the ideal backdrop for the day’s preparations. One of the venue’s many perks is its fantastic on-site locations that offer comfort and elegance as couples get ready for their ceremony. The bridal suite is a photographer’s dream for capturing those intimate moments of preparation and excitement. Similarly, the groom’s suite offered Kennon and his groomsmen a relaxed atmosphere, setting the tone for the day.

Spring Colors and Classic Elegance

Mari Margaret’s choice of beautiful baby blue with pops of pink was perfect for their spring wedding, adding a soft and romantic touch to the venue’s natural beauty. The ceremony itself was a lovely, classic affair with guests being welcomed by the beautiful music from Babcock String Studio, creating an atmosphere of elegance and charm.

Portraits at Bellawood

Capturing portraits around Bellawood was a highlight of the day. Mari Margaret, in her timeless bridal look, was absolutely stunning, and alongside Kennon, they made for an effortlessly beautiful couple. Bellawood’s scenic landscapes and architectural features provided countless opportunities for gorgeous photos that celebrated their love and the joy of their wedding day.

Celebrated by Friends and Family

It was evident that Kennon and Mari Margaret are deeply loved by their friends and family. The turnout to celebrate their union was remarkable, with ten flower girls leading the way, showcasing the love and support from everyone around them. This sense of community and celebration was a testament to their impact on the lives of those they love.

A Beautiful Day to Remember

Overall, Kennon and Mari Margaret’s wedding was a beautiful day marked by joy, elegance, and timeless style. As a Mississippi wedding photographer, being part of their special day at Bellawood was an honor I’m truly thankful for. Their wedding not only showcased their love for each other but also the beauty of Mississippi as a backdrop for saying “I do.”
