Chapel of Memories + The Mill | Starkville, MS Wedding | Cassandra + Matt

Mississippi , November 22, 2016

Cassandra and Matt,

Your wedding day was so full of beauty and love, care and devotion. It was a beautiful celebration, a coming together of families and friends, from around the world, to witness the union of a couple so deeply in love, so clearly made for each other.  Thank you for trusting me to document it.

I hope your wedding day was everything you dreamed it would be.

Cheers to you both,

Nikki

Matt and Cassandra’s wedding took place on a glorious fall day and the colors did not disappoint.

The flowers were stunning. Joni of Fleur-de-Lis did an incredible job and made me want to photograph her work all year round.

Throughout the day, it was so wonderful to watch the expressions on people’s faces. There were looks of surprise, delight, and pride and joy, particularly among the parents.

Both Cassandra and Matt’s families own houses in Starkville so after the ladies were ready to go, I darted over where the guys were getting ready.

Matt is one of four boys, and the first to get married. Naturally, they were pretty pumped for him, and the photo turned out to be one of my favorites.

The hour before the ceremony starts is the longest hour of the day. The pews are filling up, the music is playing, the finishing touches and finalized and there is nothing for the bride and groom to do but wait.

Cassandra’s inspiration for the reception was the twinkle of starlight among the magic of the outdoors, a kind of magical fairy land.
