Photoshoot with Ashley Upchurch Photography for Allure Bridal

In November I had the pleasure of teaming up with an amazing group of Mississippi wedding vendors led by the talented photographer, Ashley Upchurch, for a photoshoot for Allure Bridals.  We started off the cool autumn morning at D'Lo waterpark which, as you will see, is absolutely beautiful, and we made our way to downtown Jackson, MS to end the day at The Old Capitol Museum.  

Mississippi brides take note - You have a wealth of talented local wedding vendors!  I'll just let the images speak for themselves...     All of the details and vendor links are below.
