Stephanie and Haydel’s beautiful wedding was nothing short of perfection! It took place at Whitehall Plantation with their closest friends and family. The day started off so wonderfully with plenty time to get in detail shots, bridal portraits, AND a sweet first look!

Their portraits were the best part! The porch on this venue is so so amazing! I really enjoyed this venue and would love to shoot there again! So definitely checkout Whitehall Plantation if you’re looking for a sweet intimate venue!

The ceremony was outdoors (oh how I love outdoor ceremonies) and it was short and sweet! We even got all bridal party portraits and family formals done beforehand so both Stephanie and Haydel went straight to celebrating after signing their marriage license!

A cute dance floor was set up outside of the house complete with a live band (The James Martin Band!) and some great hanging lighting. Stephanie and Haydel shared a few sweet dances and even some fun ones with their bridal party. I had such a great time celebrating with everyone on such a perfect day!

These two lovebirds just spent their honeymoon exploring and hiking through New Zealand and lets just say it’s totally on my bucket list now. Also big congratulations to Stephanie’s sister, Jenn, who just welcomed a baby girl into the family!

Thank you so much for trusting me on your big day, you two!


Congratulations Stephanie & Haydel!!
