Lindsey and Kevin had a ‘no look’ first look. This is Lindsey’s reaction to hearing Kevin’s voice as he walked up. Genuine excitement y’all! They held hands and said a prayer. Then, it was time to get married!!

Putting on a bow-tie takes a lot of concentration. Thank goodness for older brothers!

This is a special one! I (Alisa) have known Aimee since high school. We won’t discuss exactly how long that’s been… only because I don’t like math of course.

Growing up and working in a small town, where everyone knows everyone since forever, you don’t always find your perfect match. When this gorgeous Alabama girl and handsome Mississippi guy found themselves wanting to broaden their horizons, they decided to take a chance with E-Harmony. Talk about a success story! The harmony they found turned into bliss and we couldn’t be happier that we got to spend a little time with them making memories, capturing their wedding and spending time with their sweet families. Aimee and Ben said, ‘I Do’ on a Friday morning in a private ceremony at Confederate Memorial Park in Marbury, AL.

the velveteen rabbit

The Velveteen Rabbit was one of Aimee’s favorite books as a child. A passage was read before she and Ben exchanged vows.

“Real isn’t how you are made … It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”

After the ceremony this special edition was passed down to Aimee’s nephew. LOVE!

Is there anything more Southern than a bridal session? Perhaps the name Jimmie Lyn??  This right here is a double dose of ‘Southernness’.
