Dunleith Plantation Wedding

I am so excited to share this Dunleith Plantation wedding with you! There are very, very few people I would leave New Orleans during Mardi Gras for – and the first time I chatted with Carley over Skype I knew she would be one of them! On Endymion Saturday, I left the craziness of MidCity New Orleans and drove north.

Photographing a wedding in Natchez has been a dream of mine ever since I visited nearly two years ago. The history, the architecture, and the hospitality encapsulate the South for me. I love living in this part of the country and I love weddings that celebrate that, and this one did – from the second line to the mint julep cups to the absolutely beautiful custom gown Carley wore.3 - FULL4_fuller_8A3A8076

This greenhouse was seriously one of the dreamiest (and smallest!) places I’ve ever photographed a couple!

When Hudson teared up at the first look (with all the bridesmaids trying to see through the huge tree branches from the balcony!) I couldn’t help but tear up too. Hudson + Carley are truly a team, best friends, and I know whatever they encounter in life they will be encountering together (for now, that means house training a puppy!).

I also have to say – Carley’s family is very close and for a weekend, they completely brought me into that family. I don’t know if I’ve ever felt so welcome or had so much fun at a wedding. The next morning, I woke up at Dunleith and walked down to breakfast and saw everyone I had photographed the night before! It really reminded me that this isn’t just a job, it’s a huge privilege. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Carley + Hudson!101_fuller_8A3A7963
