Simple & Rustic

Hello belles! Long time, no blog but I am confident that this one will make up for my absence! I bring to you a beautiful wedding from my college town of Hattiesburg, MS (Southern Miss To The Top!) so grab your boots because these photos are going to knock your socks off!

I would like to introduce you to Tori and Nathan Mayo. Now, I may be biased because Tori is my Phi Mu sista...but her stunning southern style can surely speak for itself! So, let me share their story with you!

Give us the deets on your inspiration, style, and location:

Nathan and I both love the outdoors, so I knew the wedding would be outside! Originally, I wanted a rustic barn wedding but just couldn't find the right setting in Hattiesburg. So, I began thinking of other options when I thought of Mr. Lawerence and Mrs. Bonnie Warren (lifelong friends of my mother). Soon, my mom asked if we could host the wedding at their house and they said YES! I was so excited to start the planning at such a beautiful place!

I knew I wouldn't need to do much as far as decorations because the setting was already perfect. Now the goal was to make everything simple and rustic! My mom and I began collecting mason jars, lanterns, burlap, wood, and grapevine and with time it all came together!

 Tell us more about the story of you and Nathan:

Nathan and I have known each other our entire lives! I have a picture of us in the 3rd grade with 'I love Tori' and 'I love Nathan' painted on our faces. (We used this picture a lot at the wedding!) I always knew we'd get married so we didn't date in high school because I didn't want to mess anything up! We first started dating as soon as we graduated and here we are now! He is truly my best friend.

How did you feel about the planning process?

Planning the wedding was stressful but I really enjoyed it! It was a big wedding, so being outdoors came with it's struggles as you don't have all the amenities of a normal venue. We had to rent tents, lights, generators, and even bathrooms!! It was a lot of work but it was all worth it in the end!

Any last thoughts about your special day?

I am so blessed to have such an amazing family and great friends who worked so hard to make our special day possible. Thank you to the Warren's for allowing us to use their gorgeous home! It was everything I have always dreamt of and more! I feel like everything about the wedding fit Nathan and I perfectly and couldn't have asked for a more wonderful day!

Thanks for sharing your story, Tori! You were a beautiful bride and I wish you both all the happiness in the future!
