Heather & Joey

Heather & Joey were married on the first cold day of the year and even the cold weather could not keep the two of them from having the best day ever. They were married in Ocean Springs at First Presbyterian Church. It was a beautiful day with blue skies and the oak trees that framed the church were magnificent.
I loved the way the light came in through the window to make her rings sparkle!
The men looked very stylish with fall season accessories. I LOVE the calla lily!
The girls helped Heather get dressed.
I had not met this ring bearer before this wedding, but he was so cute!
Kanin (below) has been in several weddings that I have photographed, so I've been photographing him as he grows up. And by growing up, I mean he's getting tall! He's so photogenic, I could follow him around and shoot him any time.
The beautiful bride.

The adorable flower girl!
And now it is time for the ceremony to begin!
Time for the ring exchange!
Lighting of the unity candle.
This is what it's all about. Right after the ceremony and I don't think they could look any happier.
A quiet moment before leaving for the reception.
Just one more kiss!
Heather & Joey held their reception at The Dock Bar & Grill on Gulfport Lake. It was an amazing location with space for dancing outside (complete with heaters so no one would get too cold!) and the cakes and food inside (complete with football on the tv's so none of they guys felt like they were missing the game!).
The first dance. The DJ was Jim Horn of Jim Horn Entertainment. Jim and I have worked together on several weddings on the coast, so it was great to have him working the event with me again!
The cake, set in the corner with windows on each side so it was beautiful from inside and seemed to glow like a jewel from the outside.
The groom's cake. I had to get a good shot of this cake. Look at the detail!
Joey's arms are much longer than Heather's...doesn't seem quite fair with that wicked gleam in his eyes!
Dancing with Dad.
This was just too funny. These are the "back-up" bridesmaids. Just in case Heather needed any fill-ins last minute! They were ready!
Mr. Smooth. I just loved this image. He looked so laid back, cool and, as I said, pretty much the definition of smooth...
Heather & Joey, dancing the night away.
Congratulations again, you two! Many blessings on you for the New Year! em
