We often find ourselves talking with each other about how we are so blessed to capture and celebrate with the most amazing brides and grooms on the best day of their lives! Friends and family travel to show their love and support for the newlyweds and celebrate the start of marriage. Marriage is the best and we feel so honored to capture our couples on their best day and give them memories they’ll have to treasure and look back on for generations to come!
We’re bringing another beautiful bride and wedding your way and today’s features the stunning White House Hotel in Biloxi, Mississippi! The last wedding we shared was from Telluride, Colorado and it’s safe to say Ryan was much more prepared for the weather at this Biloxi wedding! Y’all, this man, gotta love him!
And ya’ll if we can be real, we were ready to share this day with you the moment Laura became a Refuge Bride! If you know Laura, you love her. You love spending time with her, because when you’re with Laura you feel joy. A day with Laura is a day of celebrating and finding the good in every situation. You’re guaranteed to smile until your cheeks hurt, laugh until you cry, and feel like you had a day with a queen!
And her wedding day, it shouldn’t be a surprise that it was simply as perfect as Laura and Drew are for each other! Ryan told me he knew it was going to be a great day when he walked in and the bridesmaids were so present and supportive for Laura! And his day was absolutely made when he saw that Drew had a custom made shirt for the wedding, and custom cufflinks that Laura had made for him! “More and More” was engraved in his cufflinks, because they tell say they’ll love each other more and more each day! The entire vendor team was a dream to work with and created such a beautiful day.
And as beautiful as a wedding is at The White House Hotel, what stood out to us the most was the feeling of love and celebration that the bridal party and wedding guests had for Laura and Drew. As we stood outside the White House Hotel with all 30 members of the bridal party (yes 15 beautiful ladies and 15 dapper men!) it was so evident just how special Laura and Drew are to so many people. It was so genuine, so warm, and so real. It’s not every wedding that the best man is an Orthopedic Trauma Surgeon (Grey’s Anatomy anyone? Sorry for the reference Paul!). People flew in all the way from Washington state, just to celebrate with you two. Drew’s fellow pharmacist flew in from all over the country, Seattle and Georgia just to name a few. Your group of fellow pharmacist, or should we call them “The Ballers” is such a tight knit group and it’s so obvious how much you guys care about one another!
Laura and Drew, we love you guys so much and your day was one that we will never forget! Thank you for being the people that you are, because you bring joy to so many people every single day. It was an absolute honor to serve you on your wedding day and we can’t wait to watch all that you do together! And always remember these two things.. We’re always here to be a Refuge for you! And you can choose to be #HoneymoonersForever!
Love and Big Hugs!
Anna and Ryan
