Mr. & Mrs. Jesse Swilley

Megan and Jesse Swilley were married July 11th in New Hebron, MS. The wedding was supposed to take place this time last year but due to the tragic loss of Megan's brother the event was postponed. Both bitter and sweet, this day dawned with sunshine and clouds and even an occasional shower. Megan was reminded however, that rain on your wedding day is good luck and the sun was back out in full in no time. The ceremony was completely packed with guests lining the walls to watch this special union. Many wiped away tears as Megan and her parents lit a candle in honor of her brother Jonathan, who's picture was carried down the aisle by the bridesmaid he was to have walked with. Laughter soon gave way though as the ministers recounted stories of both Jesse and Megan's childhood and then again as the little Bible boy rolled about the stage with his John Deere tractor toys (gifts presented to him for making it all the way down the aisle). My favorite part of the day however, was the exit song. Rick Springfield's "Jesse's Girl" came blaring out of the speakers as the wedding party left the building. How cute is that?! It was a great day for a great couple and I wish them a lifetime full of happiness and success. Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Swilley!
