When I say this wedding was a fairytale, I mean that! Laurel has a heart of gold and Branson is so lucky to call her his wife. They are perfect for each other! 

Carthage is one of my favorite places so I was super excited to be heading that way. The late September weather was beautiful! When I got there I was amazed at how gorgeous this venue was! Laurel and her gals were having a blast getting ready and singing to "Hold On" by Wilson Phillips (I mean, you just have to sing this on your wedding day) and I was swooning over all of Laurel's detail items she had for me to shoot. 

After we arrived at West End Presbyterian Church where the ceremony was, Laurel put her dress on, which was absolutely STUNNING! Then Laurel opened her gift from Branson which was a picture frame revealing where they would be going on their honeymoon! Bermuda!! Afterwards, she asked me to capture them praying. Ohh y'all. This brought tears and so much emotion into the room. It was one of the most precious moments I've ever captured as Laurel's bridesmaids prayed over the Holy covenant she and Branson were about to make with God as the center of their marriage. 

"You're my wife now!" - I heard Branson say this to Laurel while signing the marriage license. It's those little things that I get to see and hear my brides and grooms do and say to each other that make my heart flutter! This is why I do what I do y'all! 

Branson + Laurel your wedding was beautiful and I wish you endless blessings and happiness!
