On the way to Jourdan and Payton’s Wedding venue, it was one of those beautiful summer days to roll down your windows and enjoy that summer breeze. Driving to The Henry Smith House at Picayune, Mississippi definitely feels like your driving through the country, such an easy and relaxing drive. As you pull up to the beautiful grounds of Mississippi’s gorgeous wedding venue you see the breathtaking set up of the ceremony space and the quaint Bed and Breakfast home. The Henry Smith House also has a charming, petite chapel behind the Bed and Breakfast with a romantic garden to the right of it. This romantic Mississippi wedding venue has such a beautiful outside reception venue set up with multiple fans to cool off the wedding guests.
The start of Jourdan’s day was getting ready with her bridesmaids, flower girls, mother, and grandmother. Her godmother, Robyn Difranco and Tabitha Aucion did such a spectacular job with Jourdan’s hair and makeup. She arrived at The Henry Smith House glammed and ready to take her photos with her bridal party and family. We also staged a First Look with her dad, which was one of the sweetest and emotional first looks I have photographed.
Jourdan and Payton’s wedding ceremony was held at the garden at The Henry Smith House where the perfect golden hour light was shining through the tall trees. The breathtaking light shined beautifully while Jourdan walked down the aisle with her father as her future husband shed a tear at the alter as his soon-to-be wife approached him. The officiant did such an exceptional job and even incorporated their families into a prayer circle. Their vows to each other were definitely unforgettable and left most of their family members and friends in tears. But of course the ceremony ended in loud cheers and applauses for the happy couple as they sealed their marriage with a kiss!
Right after the ceremony, we photographed their formal family pictures, bridal party photos, and then their romantic bride and groom photos. Jourdan and Payton were naturals in front of the camera, especially with the kiss and dip pose. The formal photos were followed by the reception. They incorporated all the traditional wedding events, such as their first dance, father-daughter dance, mother-son dance, the cake cutting, toast, bouquet toss, and garter toss into their wedding day. To make it extra special, we incorporated a special sparkler photo for the happy couple right before their awesome sparkler exit!
Congratulation again to Jourdan and Payton on your happy marriage! May you continue to love one another deeply, praise God for the blessings he has brought to you two, and laugh and cherish each other everyday!
