Black Tie and Red Roses: An October Wedding at Old Waverly – Columbus, MS Wedding Photography

I have such a lovely wedding at Old Waverly to share with you today! Jon and I loved every moment of Chelsea and Chad’s beautiful October day, so I’ve had a hard time curating these images – I want to show every single sweet moment! Let me just say, Chelsea’s choice of a bold, refined and rich palette of deep reds and black, with touches of silver and sparkle, made her and Chad’s wedding party elegant with a capital E. Especially since their chosen venue was the Clubhouse at Old Waverly Golf Club – a place that is very special to Chelsea’s family, since her precious grandparents, Nudie and Edie Dowdle, are founding members.IMG_3388IMG_1488IMG_1501IMG_3435IMG_3313IMG_3403IMG_3358Can you believe this precious tiny tuxedo?? Wait till you see who wore it on his mommy and daddy’s big day!IMG_3380IMG_3363Chelsea’s smiles and laughter as her friends and family helped her dress absolutely lit up the room.IMG_1567IMG_1551IMG_1577IMG_1554IMG_3577IMG_1596IMG_3568IMG_3561Chad was nervous and excited and couldn’t wait to see his bride. I think he began to get a little worried when Chelsea was a few minutes late to their First Look…IMG_3627IMG_3619IMG_3607I’m so glad the drizzle held off so these two sweethearts could have their First Look moment at this quiet pond under the branches of an old oak.

Here’s that darling little guy in his precious tiny tux that I promised you earlier….IMG_1877IMG_3928IMG_3811Look at this gorgeous, elegant wedding party! Especially the tiny ring bearer. I MEAN. He stole my heart (and I think everyone else’s!)IMG_4086IMG_3774IMG_3738IMG_3775IMG_1816IMG_1802IMG_1814IMG_4257IMG_1846IMG_3975IMG_3981IMG_4000IMG_4006IMG_1952IMG_1965IMG_1983IMG_4050-2IMG_4033IMG_3947IMG_4035IMG_4051IMG_4060IMG_2013Look at these two! Don’t they look like they belong on the cover of a magazine?IMG_2036IMG_2045IMG_2085IMG_4302IMG_3375IMG_4710IMG_4273IMG_4670IMG_4277IMG_2092IMG_3873IMG_2082IMG_4395IMG_4293IMG_2088IMG_4331IMG_4325IMG_4324IMG_4337IMG_4318IMG_4418IMG_4342IMG_2133IMG_2108IMG_2130IMG_4383IMG_4465IMG_4443IMG_4427IMG_4457IMG_4462IMG_4591IMG_4600IMG_4605I feel the same way about wedding cake… IMG_2186IMG_2149IMG_4733IMG_4530IMG_4717IMG_4768IMG_2147IMG_4672IMG_4627IMG_4628IMG_4631IMG_2196Chelsea had a special surprise for one of her little guests when she “tossed” her bouquet! IMG_4643IMG_2202Chelsea and Chad’s family and friends sent them off with the sweetest sparkler exit. I loved how Mrs. Edie stayed far, far away from the fireworks, while Mr. Nudie enjoyed the sparklers!IMG_4695IMG_4685IMG_4691IMG_4689IMG_2228Chelsea and Chad, your wedding was as bright and elegant and lovely as the red roses that ornamented your day. It was such a blessing & honor to be witnesses to your joy!
