lily :: bridal portraits + bridesmaids' luncheon :: mississippi wedding photographer

I know many of you are anxiously waiting to see photos from Adam+Lily's beautiful south Mississippi wedding this past weekend, and there's good news and bad news:

The bad news is that you'll have to wait to just a couple more days to see more photos of the lovely couple. Patience, people... patience.

The good news is that today I'm sharing a few images from our mini impromptu bridal session and her lovely bridesmaids' luncheon.

The weekend of these bridal portraits and their engagement session was the first time I had ever met Lily. I'd heard Adam talk about this amazing girl he was so in love with for months, and with all that chatter about how great she is, he'd set my expectations pretty darn high. But you wanna know what? Lily lived up to every single great thing Adam had to say about her. The girl has got it all... she's gorgeous, kind, funny, a great cook (anybody try the cinnamon peach ice cream at the reception???), and we chummed it up just like old pals.

And considering my use of the word "chummed," which I've never said before in my life, I've obviously been watching wayyy to much of the London Olympics. But I digress.

I'm so glad Lily and Adam found each other, and even more excited to say that I've gained a way awesome new friend.

Doesn't she look AMAZING, y'all? I'm in love with this dress by designer Mori Lee from Mimi's Bridal and her birdcage veil was constructed by none other than her groom.

On the morning of the wedding, in true southern tradition, Lily had a bridesmaids' luncheon with all the closest ladies in her life. The tone was fun and relaxed and featured some amazing food catered by Marilyn Fuquay of Laurel.

Here's a peek at their invitation suite created by the incredible Lucky Luxe Couture Correspondence with artwork by Adam...

As a gift to Lily's bridesmaids, Adam created these amazing pieces of art, all cut from the same painting. Be sure to check out his work here.

Watch out for more photos from the wedding later this week!
