Just across the street, past hundreds of sailboats, I could almost see forever enjoying the cool salty air of Pass Christian, Mississippi. This is where they grew up, met and fell in love. Their love is the kind of love story you love to read about. Cautious, long, slow, bubbling with passion and building to this beautiful day at the Blue Rose Mansion surrounded by family and friends.


Their families shed tears of happiness, glasses were raised in honor of their pledge to love each other forever, and everyone danced. And while they danced and smiled gazing into each other's eyes I remembered the words said to them as they exchanged rings. The hands that wear these rings are the hands that will always reach for YOU, they will wipe away both tears of joy and sadness, they will gently hold and nurture your unborn children and even when they wrinkle with time they will still be the hands that reach for YOU.


Amanda and Jessie, thank you for such a wonderful day surrounded by so much beauty. I was so proud to be your photographer. Your family and friends made me feel like one of the gang. I've never gotten so many hugs or given so many high fives. Your love was radiant. I've never seen a groom smile bigger or all night like yours.  Thank you for allowing me to document your special day.

xoxoxo, Daphne

Special thanks to the wonderful sister of the bride who made this day happen for me when I photographed her beautiful wedding over 5 years ago. She is still as lovely today as she was then.
