Sophie and I had a great time taking this road trip down to Greenville in the Mississippi Delta for Anna and Nick's wedding. We managed to capture some beautiful photos in downtown Greenville, and hopefully, in the process, captured the essence of what makes the Delta so unique.
"We started dating after our freshman year of college (finally). We spent practically every day together that summer and Nick asked me to be his girlfriend in a sunflower field." -Anna
"Nick started packing for a picnic and told me to get dressed, which is definitely not out of the norm. We got in the car and started driving but he would not tell me where we were going. We pulled up at Windsor Ruins and I immediately started crying. I knew then what he had been planning. Windsor Ruins was a place that I had mentioned a while back that I wanted to go to and never thought much more about it until the moment we pulled up there. We got engaged during our picnic on what felt like the hottest day of the year. We were so giddy and asked every stranger that walked up to take our picture. After we left I started calling all of my close friends and family and everyone was so excited! When we got back to our house our families and some of our close friends were there to surprise me." -Anna on the proposal
Anna & Nick's Millie was quite a show stealer early in the day. I think she likes having her photos made!
"I think the whole day felt like a dream because everything happened so quickly. The day we had been planning for was finally upon us, and we were so excited! We had many friends and family that traveled far to come to celebrate with us, and we are extremely grateful for everyone that came." - Anna
"It was so special that Nick and I were able to get married in the same church my parents got married at in 1980. We were also very fortunate that Mark Shoffner was ordained a deacon in time to be the officiant at our wedding! Mark is someone who is very near and dear to our hearts and he made our day even more special." -Anna
The reception took place at the Greenville Country Club. Amanda Cottingham of The Pantry, decked out the country club from head to toe and made it shine.
"I guess every little girl grows up dreaming that one day you will get married. You dream that you will marry your “prince” the perfect man for you. As you get older you realize there are few men that have the same characteristics as the princes you would watch on Disney movies. Nick is my prince. He makes me better every day and he is everything that I am not. He is the most thoughtful and compassionate person that you will ever meet and I am so fortunate that our lives crossed paths again and we get to spend forever together." -Anna
