This Biloxi Wedding Bash Looks Incredible
Just wait until you see the confetti.
Quite the local celebrities, Jordan spends his days as a lawyer, but his weekends and nights as an actor (yes, you’ve seen him in films like “Get Hard” where he got to kick Will Ferrell in the face!). “Sweet Kaitlyn,” as Kelly Ginn of Kelly Ginn Photography affectionately calls her, is a teacher at the same school she attended as a little girl. “She has a servant’s heart and is one of the most selfless people we know,” says Kelly.
A Stunning Round Stone
Kaitlyn’s ring is a striking round stone full of timeless style.
The Elegant Invite
Full of romance, the formal black lettering on Kaitlyn and Jordan's invitation complemented the black and white details throughout the day.
Brilliantly White Bouquet
White and ivory tones, with a slight touch of blush, gave this all-white bridal bouquet a wonderfully fresh, crisp feeling.
Classic White Rose Boutonniere
It doesn’t get more classic than Jordan’s wedding look, which was perfectly topped of with a bridal white boutonniere.
Lovely in Lace
If Kaitlyn’s breathtaking bateau neckline and all-over lace dress isn’t enough to take your breath away, one glance at that gorgeous train is sure to leave you in awe.
Black and White Beauty
The Groomsmen Gang
This dapper pack of gentlemen (15 people strong!) looked dashing while supporting their groom in their House of Tux looks.
The Ceremony Setting
Kaitlyn and Jordan wed at Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Biloxi, a stunning setting filled with vaulted ceilings and stained glass windows.
Polished Ceremony Programs
Kaitlyn and Jordan's wedding ceremony programs paired perfectly with their wedding invitations, bringing a traditional touch of paper to their ceremony.
A Sentimental “I Do”
“There wasn’t a dry eye in sight as Kaitlyn walked down the aisle,” says Kelly. “Even though Kaitlyn and Jordan did a first look, Jordan was just as emotional seeing Kaitlyn walk towards him during the ceremony as he was just hours before during their first look.”
The couple carried their white floral flair through to the reception, adding a pop of gold in their tablecloths, votives, and chairs to pull off a seamless, celebration-ready style.
Fully White Frosted Delight
Topped with white roses, Kaitlyn and Jordan’s French Kiss Pastries cake continued their classic, all-white look on the dessert table.
A Dramatic Grooms Cake…Literally
Jordan’s acting fame came to life in this cleverly decorated groom’s cake.
Things That Only Happen At Southern Weddings
Most weddings have an excited couple, more than a few loved ones, a grand send-off, and an 'I do' kiss – but Southerners have added their own charm to wedding traditions. We've mastered the art of soul food, we usually have fantastic 75˚ (enviable, really) weather, and our wedding receptions are full of syrupy drawls. If you find yourself at nuptials below the Mason-Dixon, you'll find some extra-special moments: seersucker suits, a buried bottle of bourbon, and a wedding cake with charms baked into it. Although very central to our region, these special Southern wedding traditions are celebrated for very specific reasons. We choose seersucker because it'll hold off the strong Southern heat. We bury bourbon so that we won't have to handle so much of that strong Southern heat. And, we pull charms so that our futures will be as lucky and prosperous as the bride and groom's. What's your favorite Southern wedding tradition?
