Last weekend was a doozy, you guys. In the best way!!! I spent Friday shooting a wedding with my best photographer friend, then I took her roadtripping with me down to Clarksdale for Taylor Allen and Katie’s sweet Mississippi Delta wedding on Saturday.
Saturday morning, thick grey clouds and a slow drizzle wrapped the town in a damp blanket. We kept an eye on the weather forecast (crossing our fingers that the skies were going to clear in time) and started out our day with breakfast at the delightfully warm and inviting restaurant below the lofts we slept in, Yazoo Pass Bistro + Bakery. It was absolutely delicious (I highly recommend visiting them anytime you’re in Clarksdale; you won’t be disappointed), and they also just so happened to be making the cake for the wedding!
Around noon we headed out to the Clarksdale White House to track down Katie and her girls. And just a mere couple of hours later Katie was dressed, Taylor Allen was dressed, and they were ready for their first look! And boy was it an adorable first look, ya’ll! Taylor Allen was positively giddy over seeing his incredibly gorgeous bride for the first time. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a funny and sweet reaction!
Their ceremony at First United Methodist of Clarksdale was beautiful and personal to them, and their reception in the Norman Brown Commons Building at the Cutrer Mansion was exquisite. They did an incredible job transforming the space into an elegant and luxurious wedding reception. You’ll see what I mean in just a second, just you wait!
