Wine & Navy Wedding at The Venue at The Bakery Building

SYDNEY + MICHAEL | HATTIESBURG, MS

Can I just say how FANTASTIC Sydney and Michael’s wedding day was?! It was full of love, laughter and some pretty awesome surprises! I knew I would love working with Sydney from the moment I met her! She was so fun and easy to get to know, and it wouldn’t be until their engagement sesh that I would meet Michael, but he was every bit as great as I imagined he would be. These two are the very definition of joyful! They make each other laugh, have the utmost respect for one another, and genuinely can’t wait to grow old together. As I worked with them through the next several months, I felt as if I’d known Sydney for years. She’s just so down to earth as is Michael. When she let me know about a few surprises that would be taking place on their wedding day, I have to admit – I wondered how they would pull them all off – but things went off without a hitch!

When Michael was little, he loved dinosaurs! Sydney knew he would have a few nerves on wedding day, and to kick those nerves to the curb, she planned to catch him totally off guard during their first look by wearing a dinosaur mask. So when Michael turned around, he saw a T-Rex instead of Sydney and immediately fell into giggles! The preparation was truly hilarious because while we all tried to keep from laughing while putting them into place, it was just so hard not to giggle! Sydney knew exactly what to do to put her future hubby at ease and they eagerly embraced every second of the rest of their wonderful day.

The couple said “I do” surrounded by their family and friends in an intimate ceremony. After becoming husband and wife the newlyweds enjoyed a fabulous reception with mouth watering BBQ, hopping tunes, and a surprise engagement! Yes – one of Michael’s groomsmen proposed to his girlfriend at the reception! Instead of tossing her bouquet, Sydney approached the soon to be bride and handed off the bouquet to her. That’s when her future groomy dropped down to one knee and popped the question! It was SO SWEET and we were all in tears! There was just so much about Michael and Sydney’s day that made it special!

Sydney and Michael – I can’t begin to thank you guys enough for letting me be part of such an amazing time in your lives! Yours is a day I won’t soon forget! You two just make me smile with your fun loving attitudes, huge hearts, and willingness to always put others before yourselves. I seriously am in constant awe of your goodness and will always be grateful to know you. I hope you love looking back on your wedding as much as I loved every second of being part of it!!! Big hugs, Shea
