A Moment Beneath the Trees
Chad & Beka

More and more we find ourselves playing host to moments – a stolen glance, a quick kiss or squeeze of the hand. It seems the trees are echoing our collective joy and calling out to others to join us here in this quiet place, to revel in happiness beneath their branches.

These moments, experienced, cherished and remembered for years to come, are what inspired us to open up every inch of this beautiful place to the talented people who so beautifully capture each glance, kiss and embrace. Since we first pushed back the gates so many months ago we have played host to couples and families as well as a unique array of talented Mississippi wedding vendors, photographers, stylists and the most talented dreamers among us.

Sharing the results of these ideas, the moments captured, is such an honor for us.

This session was shared with us by Brooke Davis, one of Laurel’s most cherished artists. The couple, Chad & Beka, were already a part of the Rasberry Greene family as Chad performed the first wedding ever held here on the farm, so many months ago.

Brooke shared with us, “I always love shooting at Rasberry Greene, it’s one of my first choices when helping couples, families, and brides decide where they want to take photos. I am never, ever disappointed with it. Thanks Donnie and Lauren for making your dreams a reality, this photographer is so appreciative.”

Please share these photos and help us celebrate this moment, these people and the story that they are just beginning to create together.

“I love Rasberry Greene because when taking photos there I have so many different spots to roam around and the scenery there never gets old. I once had a friend ask me, after I featured a few photos from the property, if I had used backdrops for those photos. I giggled a lot when they asked me that and was extremely proud to say, “Nope, they were taken at Rasberry Greene!” – Brooke Davis

“Donnie and Lauren are THE sweetest, most wonderful hosts every time I want to come out and shoot at the Gin at Rasberry Greene (even if it’s last minute). Jones County is so blessed to have this place, but even more blessed to have those two in charge. They are special!” – Brooke Davis

Rasberry Greene

A story to inspire and celebrate a love that matters.

The Gin at Rasberry Greene is a rustic, industrial wedding and event venue nestled deep in the woods of Soso, MS.

At Rasberry Greene we encourage you to focus on the decisions that really matter - on the memories made and future stories to tell that will last beyond the details and help you build a marriage with meaning.

After all, it's in the quiet, intentional moments where we see our future ahead of us, and what a beautiful one it is!
