Jerah + Benjamin | Intimate Gulfport Beach Wedding

Walking together along the beach was one of Jerah’s and Ben’s favorite things to do as a couple, so it’s no surprise they chose to have the Gulfport Beach for their wedding ceremony and photos. In the hours leading up to the big day, we were all checking the chance of rain – wavering between 40-80 percent. But thankfully, there wasn’t even a drop until late that night when we were all safely reception-ing under the veranda at Patio 44. 

With the weather being as gorgeous as it was and having a bit of extra time before the reception, we ended up with a lovely chunk of time for bride + groom portraits… meaning Ben had to brave Mississippi beach humidity for that much longer. Every time I commented, though, he said the same thing: “whatever makes her happy.”

There were so many sweet moments throughout the day, but my personal favorite was probably Jerah’s first look at herself – YES, that’s her natural hair color!! From her family that came from all different parts of the States to Rachel, her maid of honor and the absolute kindest soul, this couple couldn’t have picked better people to surrounds themselves with on their special milestone.  

Jerah and Ben, I’m on cloud nine happy ya’ll found each other and I’m so honored to have been part of your wedding day!!
