The morning of Daphne and Alex’s wedding was cold and rainy but this made their wedding story even more special. Most brides wish and pray for sun and glowing clouds but sometimes the opposite happens and that is okay! They took in the moments that were before them and enjoyed their time together, even when shoes had to be thrown off and the dress had to be held high! Despite the weather, Daphne and Alex chose to do a first look. I am always a huge fan of this as it is a very intimate moment with just the bride and groom. What made their first look even more special was the fact that we had an entire hour after for just bride and groom portraits! This is every photogs dream and I was loving every second of it!
Nottoway Plantation is a breathtaking antebellum plantation facing the Mississippi River with the most romantic and beautiful setting for a couple to begin their life journey. “We loved it so much we plan to return each year for our anniversary. The honeymoon suite and bridal dressing area were perfect. Our ceremony was held at 5:00pm in the elegant White Ball Room with classical music being played by an exceptional violinist.” Following the ceremony, everyone made their way to the dinner reception in Nottoway’s classic Cypress Ballroom. As the formal dinner was given to the guests, a lovely slideshow of the couple with their favorite songs played as memories where relived and new ones were made!
“My advice to a new couple is to embrace the day and call Nottoway Plantation and work with Nancy the wedding planner, she made all our dreams come true. It was a “perfect day” and we really enjoy the intimacy of a small wedding.”
