I'm a follower of Christ, wife, wedding photographer, daughter, sister, aunt, cat mom and I have a slight obsession with Joanna Gaines. 

Together, my husband, business partner + favorite hand to hold, Trevor, and I make Kayce Stork Photography + Films.

I enjoy writing here on our online journal and sharing the knowledge that I've learned over the years in the wedding industry with not only my couples, but anyone who want an extra hand to hold during this amazing, yet busy season of life!

In my career, I've photographed everything from newborns to a past United States President, but my passion and focus has been for the wedding industry for over the past 5 years. I truly love this calling and feel blessed each day!

Romantic Blue Wedding at The Great Southern Club in Gulfport Mississippi

Wedding

August 11, 2017

back to blog

Bryan & Katie’s Gulfport Wedding is finally here!

We walked into Katie’s suite at Island View and were greeted with the sweetest bridesmaids, beautiful views and a breathtaking Bride!

Katie has been such a joy to work with. From long distance we haven’t spent much one on one time together, but I’ve so enjoyed our emails and phone calls over the last year of planning!

Katie’s gorgeous Allure Bridals gown was a showstopper! I loved the lace details!

These lovely Betsey Johnson pumps were a perfect pair to go with such a lovely gown!

Katie’s first dress was from David’s Bridal by designer Galina Dress. Isn’t is beautiful!? I love the back where it has a beautiful tie on the neck area.

Both of Katie’s gowns were so perfect for her!

Everyone else had went downstairs for photos except Katie and I. Katie was reading her note from Bryan when I caught this beautiful shot with the water behind her.

We had a forecast that showed rain, but it ended up being a gorgeous day!

These beautiful bouquets were designed by Jean of After the Proposal! They smelled as wonderful as they looked.

Katie chose blue as one of her main colors and I think her choice was perfect. I haven’t seen much blue this season so it was a change that I welcomed with open arms.

My second shooter, Candra, spent the morning with the guys at the Courtyard Marriott Beachfront, also in Gulfport. They all looked so handsome and were wonderful to work with.

I had met Bryan of course, and knew he would be awesome, but with weddings, there’s always that one Groomsman who goes missing, doesn’t like photos, give the second shooter a hard time, etc… that Groomsman wasn’t there! (And no, there wasn’t a missing one!)

All of these guys were incredible to work with!

I had never photographed at Jones Park in Gulfport before so I arrived early to take a look for photos and loved what I saw! Isn’t this place beautiful?

The blue sky even matched Katie’s colors 😉 Jesus loves her, this I know, especially with the forecast I was seeing the week of the wedding!

Love these sweet smiles!

The girls were busy watching what was going on, but that handsome little guy here saw my camera and proceeded to get the girls’ attention to take a photo! Wonder if his Mom will allow him to assist me at all of my weddings?

Aren’t they the cutest!? And those floral crowns were so lovely on each flower girl!

Here comes the Bride! Katie was beaming!

After the Proposal done the most wonderful job on the decor!

We loved the three tier cake with the elegant design! Cakes by Tina done an incredible job, as always.

Bryan chose a King Cake for his groom’s cake! If that doesn’t scream, “The perfect Southern treat”, then I don’t know what does!

If my blog allowed heart emoji’s, then they would be all over the place for this post!

Katie’s maid of honor gave a very custom speech! It was to the tune of the Fresh Prince and she sang it the whole time! Way to go, Shelby! The room was totally on fire!

And finally… they lived happily ever after.

Bryan & Katie, you were a joy to work with! Can’t wait to mail your photos for you to see! <3

  2. Bryan & Katie’s Gulfport wedding is nothing short of breathtaking. I loved all of the romantic little details that you captured for them throughout their wedding, but the ring shot and the one of the two of them on the pier were my favorites. This lovely couple has a huge gallery full of new memories so gorgeously captured and documented by Kayce Stork Weddings that it will be easy for them to recommend you to all of their friends! Your work speaks for itself.

  3. I love hydrangeas so this would be a perfect wedding for me! The blue is so soft and pretty. I love all the details of this wedding.

  4. Esther says:

    Beautiful wedding! Love the details that you captured, and the special moments between the couple. I especially like the one with her veil blowing in the wind – so pretty!!
