This is what the entire Delta looks like at the end of the summer/beginning of fall!!

Mississippi Snow!

The Tallahatchie Flats
Old slave shacks that have been moved and renovated and turned into a hotel!!
This is actually where the boys in our wedding party stayed and we had a wedding shower/party there too!!

Groomsmen and their lovely ladies!

Band Set Up at our Shower!
How cute?

Particularly, I am from the home of Viking Range.

And the Alluvian Hotel

The Gals enjoying ourselves at the Alluvian after our rehearsal dinner.
