I’m so happy to introduce you to ten more folks that have the Southern Weddings stamp of approval!

Name: Berrett Photography

Favorite part of a wedding day? My favorite part is the first look between the bride and groom… so crazy romantic!! A close second would be the dance between the groom and his mother, or the bride and her father. Being a momma myself, I’m always a mess during those sweet moments with parents!

Things you’d write home to your Momma about: It’s the little things. My mom is always the first to want to see a featured wedding or to hear about the upcoming events. And as I make and create a lot of décor pieces for my clients, she’s fallen into the role of in-house seamstress.
