Real Wedding: Megan + Joe

Today’s Open Submission comes to us from Freshly Bold Photography. Megan and Joe were high school sweethearts that tied the knot in front of Megan’s great great grandmother’s “little house” in Grand Bay, Ala. Setting your ceremony in front of an old family property adds a personal, sentimental touch to  the momentous occasion of a wedding that is perfectly Southern. It brings you back to a place that holds memories for an entire family and shares it with your new family. The bridesmaid dresses and bouquets are a nice pop of color against the neutral palette of the menswear and natural surroundings. And what rustic Southern wedding would be complete without cowboy boots? The couple wanted to create a casual, fun experience with their guests – a true shindig! Everyone in the family had a hand in making all the details come together, from the flowers and bridal cake to the clean-up afterward. “We are more than grateful for the help from our friends and family,” said Megan. That is the true spirit of a Southern wedding. Congratulations to Megan & Joe!
