Bridal Pics...Southern Style

When time came to decide on where Haley would get her bridal pics made...it really wasn't a hard decision...the location shoot would take place at a local SOUTHERN MANSION. The mansion was built in 1855 and it is a 13,000 sq. ft. greek revival style home...her name is...Bragg-Mitchell. The home is used for lots of weddings and wedding receptions and if there was a inside area for our band, then we would had rented this home for the reception, but you just never know how HOT it might be here on the gulf coast in late July. We were really pleased with how her pics came out...our photographers did an outstanding job...so take a look at her SOUTHERN STYLE pics...you just might need to have a glass of SWEET TEA because this mom had a hard time just picking a few pics to share with all of y'all.
                                              Happy that you came by,
                                                             Linda

                                       It was so hard to pick our favorite for her
                                       16x20 canvas that would be on display at
                                       the reception...this is the one that we went
                                       with...now it has a SPECIAL place in our
                                      dining room and if I say so myself...it looks
                                       really good in there after the makeover at
                                                         we did last year.

What a beautiful bride your daughter was! Congratulations

Beth Adams said...

Love the photos! My middle child, Theresa got married at an old mansion in Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay. The shot of your daughter sitting on the porch reminds me of it. I can see where your daughter gets her good looks.....from her Momma of course!

Your daughter was a beautiful bride and I can understand why you would have problem chosing the pictures. Thank you for sharing your family with us on this very special day. You have a beautiful family. You never lose one, your family just continues to grow is the way that we look at ours. Have a wonderful day. A Missouri Friend.

Lovely, indeed. The first daughter of ours to marry- our baby- did so April 9. What a great, calm stress-free bride she was, too. And our photographer, too, was God-sent.

Congratulations. What a lovely, happy bride!

She is just glowing! What wonderful pictures. My daughter did get married in a home much like that one, but not as big I don't think. Thanks for sharing these. I know how proud you are.

So beautiful Linda. I thought about you last weekend...it's hard for me to believe my "baby's" been married since 1997! Nothing beats a southern wedding!

These are amazing! I love the photos of Haley on the pebble walkway and sitting on the porch.

I had to pass on the sweet tea. It's after midnight and I don't want like to drink a lot before I go to bed unless I want to get right back up! : )
My blog is still a mess - getting really frustrated over here.

What a beautiful bride..I LOVE the ones of her on the porch...so romantic and charming! I wish we could've afforded better photography when we were married. Married young, and broke, but still in love and I guess that's all the matters! Here's to the bride's happiness! Andrea @ townandprairie
