Kendall and Josh had a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony on the fourth of July, at McClain Lodge in Brandon, Mississippi. They were supposed to get married on March 28th, but two weeks before the wedding they were forced to reschedule thanks to COVID. It was not an easy decision for these two to make on whether or not they should reschedule, but I feel like they made the best decision in the end. Four months after their original wedding date they finally got to celebrate with their closest friends and family. And what a celebration it was!
When the wedding week arrived I was concerned we wouldn’t be able to have the ceremony outside as planned, since there was a big chance of rain. The day before the wedding when we checked the weather again it still wasn’t looking good. Kendall made the call that she would be getting married outside regardless. It was her dream to get married outside and she was determined. I was SO happy she made that decision because it wasn’t going to be the same if they exchanged vows inside, or on the porch at McClain Lodge. She had a specific vision and it was so much fun to create it. The day of the wedding we got started on the ceremony installation and there were a few times we were questioning if we should even be wasting our time. It would rain then the wind would pick up like crazy. When it was finally time for the ceremony it was sprinkling, but they proceeded on and it couldn’t have been more beautiful. We were so thankful these two got to exchange vows Under the Oaks. Following the reception guests danced the night away to tunes by Dr. Zarr’s Amazing Funk Monsters. A fun time was had by all.
