Tessa certainly doesn’t need a beautiful white dress to look beautiful, she is simply a natural beauty! But once we saw her adorned with her Maggie Sottero Bernadette wedding dress, she took our breath away! She found her perfect dress at Imaginations in Brookhaven, MS. We met up with Tessa at a very unique venue in Hattiesburg called The Barn at Bridlewood. This is no typical barn, it was build especially for weddings and events! Everything about the “barn” is very shabby chic. It was the perfect southern venue for this stunning southern bride.
Blooms -A Garden Shop provided Tessa’s bouquet for the bridal session as well as for the wedding day. We have worked with Blooms Garden Shop several times in the past and they always do a great job. We’d absolutely recommend them if you are getting married around the Hattiesburg area.
I personally loved this wall, but it was in a hidden area of the Barn. Perhaps if you’ve been to the barn, you may be able to recognize it, tell me if you do!
Sadly, The Barn at Bridlewood was involved in a fire which almost destroyed it just a few weeks after we shot this session. Thankfully, they were able to rebuild! I know couples around Hattiesburg are thrilled to have this venue in their area, and I’m sure that many couples will be using it to host their ceremony and their celebration for years to come. I personally can’t wait to get back, hopefully I’ll have a chance to shoot a wedding there soon!
Be sure to check out Tessa and Brian’s New Orleans engagement session that we posted a few months ago. I’d have to say it certainly was romantic, they are such a great couple! You can view those images here:
We’ll be posting their wedding soon! They even had a special guest that many Hattiesburg residents and Southern Miss fans will recognize. Do you recognize the name Seymour? Stay tuned!!
Just a little something from my most recent workshop . Yes I love to teach all of the amazing attendees and help them build their knowledge , but I have to admit it is pretty fun to get to play as well .
Thanks to all of those who attended and to all of my lovely models !
