A Corinth couple has a photo session waiting the next time they're on the Coast.

But that will have to wait until John Mitchell gets his fields planted.

He and Brittany Mitchell, his new wife, were able to take a break -- he from planting, she from nursing school -- to make a day trip to the Coast for a beach wedding.

Coast photographer Selena Baroni snapped some quick cell phone photos of a young couple's ceremony and posted them on her Facebook page. She didn't know who they were but wanted them to have photos.

"No wedding should go without photos," Baroni said. "It's not fair."

Baroni, who lives in Ocean Springs, said she was having a late lunch about 3 p.m. Wednesday near the Biloxi lighthouse when she saw a man in a suit carry a table and set it on the beach. Then the young couple came and were married in a short ceremony.

"He scooped a handful of sand, put it in a bottle and gave it to the couple and that was it," she said.

"They were there and gone in minutes -- the whole thing probably lasted 10 minutes.

"I do photography and I just wanted them to have the photographs if they want them."

She said the couple plans to make another quick trip to the Coast after planting is finished.
