Romantic Memphis Acre Wedding

When we first met with Emily and Trey, they told us that they didn’t want a traditional wedding. With that, we loved them right away! Then Emily said what she really wanted was an intimate, laid-back dinner, where a wedding just happens to take place in the middle of it. We loved them even more! The best part? They got exactly what they wanted.

Classic Memphis Hunt and Polo Club Wedding

Oh friends, we have such a treat for you today! I’ll go ahead and warn you ahead of time… this is a very lengthy post! I had so much trouble narrowing down my favorite photos.

Now comes the hard part – trying to figure out what to say about this amazing, classic Memphis Hunt and Polo Club wedding. While I love words, and I love to talk, trying to find the right words for all the awesomeness that happened on this day is going to be a challenge. But I’ll give it my best shot…

Classic Memphis Winter Noah’s Wedding

Our 2017 wedding season has officially begun! We kicked off the year with an amazing couple. Sabrina and Gary are a classic duo, with style all in the right places (wait until you see her shoes!). My favorite thing about them is their romance. Gary can’t go 5 minutes without kissing her, and Sabrina has a shy smile that she saves for only him. I think you’ll notice as you scroll through these photos how easily they are themselves in front of the camera, and I love that!

We are officially done with weddings for 2016! We will still be busy the next few months with lots happening behind the scenes and time spent on re-energizing for next year, but we are tickled pink to end this year’s wedding season with a bang!

Classic, Neutral Cadre Wedding

He bounced on the balls of his feet while he waited to see her. His eyes sparkled with excitement and, already knowing the answer, I asked if he was ready for his wedding day. “SO ready!” he replied with a huge grin. We could feel the anticipation pouring off him in waves. He didn’t have any of the usual groom nerves, and cold feet were certainly not in the equation. This man was simply ready to be married to the love of his life! George loves Taylor with a fierceness we rarely see. It was obvious to everyone who shared the day with them that Taylor makes George insanely happy, and she would do anything to make him happy.

Classic Tower Room Wedding

“All in.” That’s what I always remember when I think about Erica. It has been over a YEAR since we first met with her and her lovely mom. That first time we spoke, sipping coffee, we all just hit it off perfectly. The more we talked about her wedding plans, the more excited we all got! At the end of the meeting, Erica turned to her mom and said, “What do you think?” Her mom gazed back at her and said, “Let’s do it! I’m all in.” And I fell in love with them both.

Memphis Hillwood Wedding

Karen + Derek: Joined | a Memphis Hillwood Wedding

There’s nothing like a classic, traditional wedding! A simple diamond solitaire, a lace gown, a sheer veil, classic black and white, and red roses speak more about a couple than it may seem at first. They say love, above all. They say simplicity is a gift. They say relationships will never go out of style. They say their lives will always have a splash of color. They say that coming together with family, friends, and loved ones is all they need.

jennifer + jared: joined. a heartwood hall wedding.

She is timeless, and he loves that about her. She lives and loves passionately, she can make anything fun, and she never goes out of style. On her wedding day, Jennifer wore her grandmother’s wedding gown, and made it look like it was created just for her. Like her, the dress is classic. Beautiful. Ever fashionable.

Jennifer also loves horses. She had wanted her own horse to be included in the wedding somehow, but when plans didn’t work out, Jared knew she was disappointed. While Jared knows he has to share a bit of her attention, he knows he never has to compete for her heart. So, as a surprise, he produced and donned a rubber horse mask so that she would know her horse was there in spirit. He leaned down and whispered in her ear, this way you will have a few photos with your horse. And she loves that about him.

On a beautiful summer day, Jennifer and Jared declared their love for each other, with perfect details that represent their love. Simplicity. Natural elements. Beauty. Timelessness.

Heartwood Hall Memphis Wedding

Jennifer’s and Jared’s wedding was held at Heartwood Hall, and the girls’ preparation began in the main plantation house, with a beautiful wedding gown and sparkling chandeliers. Jennifer wore her grandmother’s dress, which was created especially for her and is one of a kind.

Jennifer wore her mother’s garter, so there were three generations of weddings represented!

Meanwhile, Ed was with the guys, who were getting ready in the old plantation slave quarters (seems appropriate, doesn’t it?).

Okay, when I said this flower girl was the cutest thing, I wasn’t lying. I might be a bit biased, since I have three girls of my own, but she was adorable! She passed out flowers to all the ladies sitting on the isle. How cute is that?

Jennifer and Jared, I know you had a great time in Hawaii! Jennifer, I hope you kept those daisy-clad toenails buried in the sand! I can’t wait to hear all about it! Thank you SO MUCH for allowing us the honor of capturing your wedding day. It means more to me than I can express, especially since Jared is quite the photographer himself!
