Blue Rose Wedding, Pass Christian, MS

My associate shooter Natalie has photographed a couple weddings at the historic Blue Rose, but I personally never have.  Until April!! 

First, it's an amazing place to get ready and have bridal portraits taken.  Second, the staff was so wonderful - and made sure everything ran smoothly.  Third - the location and home itself are so picturesque that it's practically impossible to take a bad picture here!!!

Roxanne and Derek are truly awesome.  And today, someone special would be viewing the wedding from up above.  Roxanne's mother passed away just weeks before the wedding, but you could feel her presence there throughout the entire wedding day.

The weather was trying to cooperate, however about an hour before the ceremony, it began to rain.  The decision was made to bring the ceremony inside, which turned out to be just as beautiful!  The rain stopped just in time for us to go outside for pictures after the ceremony, and we caught some dreamy light!!

Rachel, from Pine Hills Floral Designs designed the beautiful bouquet and all the table arrangements.  And the cake was from the amazing Melissa Fischer of Melissa's Specialty Cakes in Long Beach.

Tilley Photography Willowdale Estate Wedding Featured on Style Me Pretty

Before moving to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, my photography business was based out of Boston, Massachusetts.  And so from time and again, I'll get the occasional New England wedding (which I love by the way, so keep them coming).

Two summers ago I had the pleasure of photographing a storybook wedding at the Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, MA.  Taylor and Chris were a dream couple, beautiful inside and out.

So, imagine my suprise to see the wedding feautured this month at Style Me Pretty!
