Let me start off this post by saying that yes, I'm completely aware that I'm almost an entire day late getting this out. I promise it has nothing to do with how much I enjoyed this wedding or my feelings toward Brian and Tina. It's just been one of THOSE days and I'm going to continue trying to adult properly by not whining about it too much.
Okay, so now that I have that out of the way let me tell you about Brian and Tina. From the minute Tina started talking about what she and Brian were planning for their wedding at our first meeting it felt like she'd reached into my brain and picked out all my favorite things and top priorities as a photographer. She wanted light, bright, and fun. Yep, done. We can totally handle that. She wanted casual southern elegance. Okay now I was really started to get excited about their wedding. Then she really got me by telling me that she was already thinking about her detail shots for the day. I was really excited about working with Tina from that first meeting but unfortunately didn't get to meet Brian until their engagement shoot. It didn't take long though until we felt like we knew him just as well.
Brian and Tina's wedding was at Mussecuna Plantation in Mississippi. It was a new venue for us and we were really excited to get to shoot there. Their day had all the ease of a back yard wedding with all the grace and style that comes with an antebellum home. We really got to relax and have fun (which is really easy with these guys). We couldn't have asked for better. We even got lucky enough to have great weather for most of the day! All of it really except the last 15 minutes of the reception. The DJ was playing the next to last song when we felt the first rain drop. Within minutes we went from an only slightly hot clear June evening to a steady downpour. 15mins later though, it was done, and we were off and rolling again just in time for their exit.
