29 May courtney + phillip: an arrington vineyards engagement
I’ve known Phillip and Courtney for quite some time now. Phillip is the amazing creative genius behind Phillip Ashley Chocolates, and his creations will blow you away. Seriously, go grab a box right now. I’ll wait. He comes up with such unique flavor combinations, and they always go so well with wine and/or cocktails. Brides, you will want to consider him for wedding favors – your guests will thank you for it!
Phillip is a big part of the Memphis wedding community, so I was so honored to be chosen as his wedding photographer when he decided it was time to tie the knot himself! They are huge wine connoisseurs, and had originally wanted a Napa Valley wedding. In the end, they decided having their family present was more important, but they still wanted some photos to represent their love of travel and wine. So we decided that Arrington Vineyards, just south of Nashville, would be the perfect location for their engagement photos.
Due to traffic and a few other unforeseen travel issues, we only had about 10 minutes before sunset to actually do the photos. I may have been sweating a bit under the pressure, but Courtney and Phillip rocked those 10 minutes, and we came away with beautiful photos! Afterwards, we joined the throngs of picnic-goers on the lawns, drank some wine (duh!), and chilled out to an awesome jazz band. It was a perfect evening!
Courtney and Phillip, thank you so much for spending an evening in the vineyard with us. And for making the 3 and half hour drive for 10 minutes of photos. I know we will be going back!
Here’s to wine. And travel. And an amazing, romantic sunset. Cheers!
