Sheldon and Wesley’s traditional, southern, elegant wedding was truly a gem. They had the biggest wedding party we’ve ever had in nearly ten years of photographing weddings, but they were amazing to work with on every level. The setting of The Retreat at Southern Bridle Farms was perfect for the couple’s vision for their day. They chose a pecan tree as the focal point for their ceremony, which was extremely fitting since Sheldon’s family farms pecans. Though the weather was quite warm, it never rained, which was a tremendous blessing. The couple tested an old tradition, Burying the Bourbon, a month prior to the wedding, and it worked!

Mike and his crew at The Retreat outdid themselves with the flowers, reception decor, and all of the fabulous food which fueled the crowd so they could dance all night to the Sweet Water Junction Band. Enjoy this look into their beautiful day!
