Do you love the history and romance of old lighthouses? Then these wedding images will give you plenty to enjoy — portraits of a wedding day at the historic lighthouse in Biloxi, Mississippi, as photographed by Stephen DeVries. The bride and her maids share a few moments of fun and gossip as they’re fussed over at the hairdresser’s. Then the bride slips into a simple strapless gown with a majestic flowing train, a gossamer veil edged in lace, and sparkling sandals; her maids, in floor-length blue, hold bouquets of baby-pink and white — and big smiles — as they pose beneath a spreading tree. The groom and his men, clear down to the most junior of them, are dapper in gray suiting, plaid ties, and stephanotis boutonnieres.

After a clutch of poses outdoors, the party proceeds to a church, where guests are seated in the round beneath a “halo” of stained glass. When the vows are said, the happy couple pauses, savoring the day and the moment — then it’s time for the celebration to begin. The bride’s cake is four layers of pristine white topped with flowers; the groom’s cake is a luscious square of chocolate and raspberries. A few toasts, a little cake noshing, and then it’s time to dance — and everyone gets in on the act: witness the circle of little kids having a great time, and the bride cradling one of the tiny attendants in her arms. The party ends before sundown, as the newlyweds don their going-away outfits and depart, in a shower of rose petals, for their future together.
