“Ariana and Tim had a roller coaster of a wedding planning process this year, as many couples have, due to Covid-19. The couple exchanged vows on their original wedding date in May with just their closest family members, in hopes that in July, they could have their large dream wedding and celebrate their love with all of their closest friends and extended family. Unfortunately, one week before their wedding, our Mississippi governor extended the statewide closures of venues and Ari and Tim were forced to cancel their wedding!
I was devastated when Ariana called me with the news, but she was in such high spirits and so positive about the entire process! She asked me if I could instead just meet her at her parent’s house for a bridal session complete with a first look with her dad and her newlywed husband. Of course, I was thrilled!! So, on July 18, 2020, Ariana and Tim celebrated their wedding by putting on their full wedding attire and enjoyed the little things that were most important to them! We began the afternoon with a bridal session on the second story porch of her parent’s beautiful Pascagoula Beach house, and ended with a beautiful glowy sunset session at the historic Longfellow house just two doors down! Although things were far from their original plans for their wedding, I can not be more blessed to have friends with such big, strong hearts who know how to celebrate what truly matters, their love!!”
