I have something special to share with you today! I have a soft spot in my heart for this precious couple, Amanda and Matt, because their love story reminds me just a tiny bit of mine & Jonathan’s. Before I met Jon, I had been out of Mississippi exactly three times, and I had never left the South. And before I knew it, we were traveling all over the place, crossing oceans, having adventures, and learning to fly (literally!) My wonderful husband has
dragged me kicking and screaming encouraged me out of my comfort zone from the moment we met, and my life is ever so much richer because of his daring spirit. So when we first sat down with these two, I was tickled because Amanda is a lovely, shy young woman – she admitted to bringing her sister along for support on her and Matt’s first date! – and she has found her soulmate in a bold, adventure loving, professional pilot. And they’ve been having adventures ever since! For example: guess where Matt proposed? In PARIS, y’all. PARIS, FRANCE. (Can you tell that he’s also very romantic?) And guess what? They’re saying “I do” to a lifetime of more adventures this Saturday!Amanda and Matt brought along their sweet fur baby, Bella the bulldog! Look at this FACE!We met Amanda and Matt for their fall e-session in the beautiful small town of Clinton, MS, where Amanda grew up. We were super excited because Clinton is just CUTE, y’all. The little historic downtown has brick streets and adorable shops and BICYCLES everywhere. I loved how they incorporated so many important elements of their lives – their love of small town life, their love of MSU, and Matt’s service in the Armed Forces. These things alone would have made for an amazing e-session, but Amanda had a surprise up her sleeve for Matt.After capturing these sweet moments in the charming old streets of Clinton, we drove a few miles out of town…… where a friend of Amanda’s had a private airstrip filled with gorgeous old warbirds! Jonathan and I were over the moon at the chance to even just see these awesome planes, let alone photograph with them!Wouldn’t you know it, the weather turned super chilly and windy the moment we stepped foot on the airstrip, but Amanda was a trooper. We had so much fun taking these pictures! Amanda and Matt, we have been so blessed to get to know you and share this part of your wedding journey with you! We can’t wait to witness your beautiful day Saturday, and we can’t wait to see where love takes you from here!
