stephanie + tim: a water valley, mississippi wedding.

When Tim walked into the room, he was afraid that Stephanie wouldn’t like the way the cake turned out. He worried that the champagne fountain wouldn’t work. His hands shook a little as he buttoned his coat. The only thing he wanted was for Stephanie to be happy. This was finally their day, and he wanted everything to be perfect.

He needn’t have worried. Stephanie strolled in the door with a grin on her face. Not because the cake turned out exactly as she hoped. Not because the weather couldn’t have been more perfect for an outdoor wedding. Not because her flowers were beautiful. But because today, she was marrying her best friend. Today, her little family would become whole. Today, life was perfect. She was happy. And that had everything to do with Tim.

Stephanie and Tim began the day at their reception venue, the historic Hendricks Machine Shop. The old building had a fabulous warehouse style that I adored, and was perfect for showcasing Stephanie’s dress and beautiful purple heels.

Stephanie and Tim chose to see each other before the ceremony, and their First Look was very sweet and emotional!

The light in the old building was beautiful for a few portraits. I loved the brick walls and wood barn doors!

The bridal party was small and intimate, and I loved that Stephanie’s nephew served as best man!

But Stephanie’s son got the honor of walking her down the isle. He was almost as excited as she was.

Stephanie and Tim celebrated all night with friends and family, but I pulled them away for just a few minutes for one last intimate, candle-lit photo. I’ll end with this obvious display of their love.
