What a wedding! Duane & Mandy had the difficult decision on their wedding day of whether or not to have their ceremony outside. At the time of their decision, rain was imminent. Thanks to the awesome staff at Bella Rose Plantation wiping down the white pews as guests arrived and providing white umbrellas for all, they were able to have their dream outdoor ceremony. Mandy’s bright and colorful style outshone the rain, and it was a dreamy day despite the rain!
It wouldn’t Bella Rose without roses, am I right? :)
This was one of Mandy’s gifts to Duane, a customized pocket watch that said “See you at 4 p.m.!” on the other side <3
Mandy opted for florally adorned lanterns instead of traditional bouquets, complete with twinkle-lights inside.
It takes an army :)
These floral robes were to die for!
I love when bridesmaids step up to serve the bride in whatever way needed on the wedding day, and this was one of those very special groups of girls. Here, one of the bridesmaids was hugging Mandy to help keep her dress tight while her sister laced her up.
Mother-daughter candids are one of my favorite moments to capture <3 <3
Mandy sneaking a peek at her groom arriving :)
The no-peek, where they prayed together and exchanged gifts prior to walking down the aisle.
They did it!!
Indoor family photos provided a break from the rain – and were still beautiful thanks to the gorgeous interior at the Bella Rose mansion!
Gasp, these colors. SWOON.

Duane had to do a little digging before he found the garter – he pulled out all sorts of things, including a drill, antlers, and more. This surprise had everyone losing it, including the bride. So creative!
That’s a wrap! What a gorgeous day – Congrats Duane & Mandy!
