Cultural Center of Hattiesburg, Mississippi Wedding Picture of the happy bride and groom dancing as a married couple
Here, the happy bride and groom dance for the first time as a married couple as some guests applaud, clasp their hands in joy, and take pictures.
This couple, who seemed inspired by simple elegance and family, married at the Hattiesburg Cultural Center in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. While some brides dream of big, fairytale weddings, this couple envisioned one spent with a small group of guests made up only of people whom they consider to be very special to them. Katie, the bride, wore a shimmering white dress while her groom, Evan, wore his Navy uniform. The couple shared a fairly traditional ceremony followed by a reception and dancing. The room, which used to be a library, was simply decorated with a few woodland-inspired touches and filled, more than anything else, with the love and joy of this close-knit group of people who all joined together to share in this special moment.
