Vibrant Wedding Day at Bellawood | Mississippi Wedding Photographer

As a Mississippi wedding photographer, capturing the unique beauty and heartfelt moments of a couple’s special day is always an honor, and Savannah and McKinley Skipper’s wedding at Bellawood was no exception. Their wedding stood out not only for its bright and beautiful details but also for the profound love and support that surrounded them throughout their celebration. Today, I’m excited to share the story of their perfect day at Bellawood, a venue that beautifully complemented the joy and color of their wedding!

A Day Filled with Love and Bright Colors

One of my favorite aspects of Savannah and McKinley’s wedding was the choice of bright colors for the flowers. Savannah’s selection added a vibrant and fun touch to the beauty of their day, and was so fun to photograph. I always love when florists leave extra flowers for me to use in detail photos, and this wedding was no exception. The additional blooms allowed for creative detail shots that beautifully captured the essence of their day.

Intimate Moments and Joyful Celebrations

The day began with an emotional first look between Savannah and McKinley, where they shared private vows, creating an intimate moment that set the tone for the rest of their day. The clear weather, following a day of rain and storms, was a huge blessing, allowing us to capture stunning bridal portraits around the scenic grounds of Bellawood.

A Touching Ceremony

The evening ceremony, surrounded by their closest family and friends, was the perfect celebration of their love and commitment to each other. Savannah played a touching voice recording to begin the ceremony, in which shared her love and excitement to to marry Mckinley. This made the moment she walked down the aisle even more special and emotional. The love and support from her family during the ceremony were palpable, especially in the moment her mom and sister walked her down the aisle. This beautiful moment was a testament to the strong bonds and support system within their family, making the ceremony even more special.

An Evening of Celebration

After the ceremony, the celebration continued with more bride and groom portraits, capturing the newlyweds in the beautiful evening light. The reception was a testament to the joy and excitement of their marriage, with Savannah and McKinley dancing and celebrating with their loved ones. The atmosphere was filled with happiness, laughter, and dancing, making it a memorable night for everyone involved!

A Perfect Day for the Perfect Couple

Savannah and McKinley Skipper’s wedding day was a beautiful reflection of their love for each other and the dreams they shared for this day. Their kindness and love were evident in every interaction, making it a joy to photograph their wedding. Witnessing their happiness and the fulfillment of their wedding dreams was so sweet!
