The Mississippi Delta is the quintessential expression of true southern beauty. Cotton fields and blue skies fill the landscape for miles and miles. Massive giant trees provide the stunning leafy canopy of shade and sporadic beams of warm sunlight. The Delta is where Michael and Shelby once lived and still love. Michael chronicled their story perfectly when he read in his letter to his bride, “...I first had a crush on you, to liking you, to loving you, and now to becoming one with you.”

Their wedding was the complete balance of vintage charm and modern boho. Shelby’s dress was a gorgeous gown with intricate designs. Michael’s suit was perfected with a floral tie that blended wonderfully with the theme of the day. Their ceremony was in the backyard of the timeless Thompson House in downtown Leland, Mississippi.

It was evident that Michael and Shelby’s love was a love built on friendship, laughter, and sincere joy. Friends and family celebrated the sweet couple with eating, drinking, and dancing the night away! Michael and Shelby were married on October 13, 2018, at the Thompson House in Leland, Mississippi.

Oh my goodness, the video is so so so perfect!! I am seriously IN LOVE with it! Y’all did such an amazing job! I am so glad we got to work with y’all. It was so so enjoyable. Truly. I can’t wait to share the video so everyone else can see how great of work you two are doing!
