Winter Elegance Wedding at The Camellia House
KADEE + AARON | HATTIESBURG, MS
I am still in awe of how elegant Kadee and Aaron’s wedding was at The Camellia House! This amazing couple planned a timeless southern event that is sure to be one I and their guests will always remember. Kadee had a very clear vision of how she wanted their day to look and feel. From the very start of working with her, I knew she wanted a charming, elegant aesthetic that emphasized who she and Aaron are individually and as a couple. They both love their Southern roots, the finer details, and each other with their whole hearts. Aaron and Kadee kept the significance of their day in perspective the whole time. Both knew that no matter what happened at the end of the day they would be husband and wife and that was truly all they ever wanted.
When arriving at The Camellia House, I found Kadee and her bride tribe enjoying the morning and soaking up every joyful moment together. Kadee’s Delta Gamma sisters surrounded her with love and support. These ladies kept their girl smiling from ear to ear as they reminisced over old stories and made new memories with their best girl. Aaron was every bit the dapper Southern gentleman in a gray suit, bow tie, and high ball glass in hand. When it was time for their first look, he was overcome with emotion at seeing his beautiful future wife and, of course, we were all in tears. The two embraced and I couldn’t help thinking that if given the opportunity, they would have raced to the minister and said their vows right there and then just so they could finally be what they wanted most in the whole world: husband and wife.
The couple really went all out with florals, gifts for their bridal party, decor, and all the things that make a wedding a top notch event! It was a joy to see their vision come true and to have been part of it. As Kadee and Aaron said their vows in front of God and their loved ones, the sun slowly sank into the horizon line and we all cheered as the groom kissed his bride. It was time to party then and Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Shankland celebrated the best day ever with their family and best friends. To end the night, Aaron and Kadee drove away in a classic vintage car underneath a canopy of sparklers. To say it was the perfect end to the perfect day, is an understatement!
Kadee and Aaron – I don’t even know where to begin when thanking you for choosing me to be part of such an amazing time in your lives! Kadee, I’m smiling because you’re my sister and I laugh because there’s nothing you can do about it! I will always be thankful for the gift of your friendship and for the time I spent getting to know you guys. I hope you love looking back on your amazing wedding day as much as I loved being part of it! TDH & Big hugs, Shea
