Annah + Travis :: Wedding

When Annah told me she was having her wedding at Dunleith Plantation in Natchez, Mississippi… I DIED and went to Heaven. I’ve shot another wedding there before and it quickly became one of my absolute favorite venues I’ve seen in the South. So when I knew I’d be able to shoot another wedding there again, I was ecstatic and thought it couldn’t get any better than that. Well, it did. After getting to know Annah and Travis over time and while shooting their engagement pictures, I grew even more excited about their big day. They are two of the sweetest and most genuine people you will ever meet. They have been such an easy couple to work with in every single way and have been completely up for anything and everything. Annah worked with me on timing her event so that we could get the perfect lighting and we got just that. The weather was incredible, the bride was stunning, the groom was excited and everything was as it should be. The day was just absolute perfection in every way and I couldn’t have asked for more.

Annah and Travis: Thank you, thank you, thank you for being YOU. Thank you for reminding me how incredibly blessed I am and for giving me the honor of documenting your love for one another. I heart you both in every way and look forward to watching you grow more in love together. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything. Michael and I are so grateful for clients like you.

Below are just a few of my favorites from their incredible wedding.

I absolutely loved all of Annah’s details from the dress, shoes, accessories, garters, everything! It was the perfect vintage flow for the perfect old Southern feel of the day.

Annah had the idea of getting in the tub for a shot and I was in love!

I have to tell you about this moment. Annah used several pieces of music from The Notebook’s musical score for the ceremony and I gotta say, it caught me waaaayyy off guard. The Notebook is one of my favorite movies and the music from it is to die for. I captured this shot of the bridesmaids getting teary eyed as they waited for Annah to come around the corner and by the time the crescendo of the song “On the Lake” was playing, a whirlwind of emotion snuck up on me and before I knew it I was fighting some hardcore tears! I felt myself about to lose it and I quickly had to tell myself, “Courtney, get a hold of yourself! You cannot look like a basket case in front of all these people!!” I have gotten teary eyed at other weddings before, but never like this! (Thanks a LOT Annah! ; ) I truly felt like I was in a movie at that very moment and couldn’t believe how lucky I was to be a part of such an incredible day. It was a moment I will never forget.

Annah made her way around with her father in a carriage which couldn’t have been more appropriate.

If this isn’t the perfect vision of a Southern wedding, I don’t know what is.

Annah surprised Travis with a boudoir album right before they made their entrance into the reception. He, of course, was thrilled.

Right here he is thinking, “I am the luckiest man alive!” Right Annah? ; )
