Candis and Keith have waited a long time for this day. And so have their boys. More than anything, this wedding day was about celebrating family, and there's nothing I love more than a family-centered wedding! Candis and Keith's children may be young, but they knew exactly how important this day was. An especially moving song during the ceremony made these two little boys melt into tears. They didn't care who saw them. Overwhelmed with emotion, they wiped at their eyes. Then they wrapped each other and their parents in a long hug, on the altar, finally a family. That is what this entire day was about!

Rachel knew what she wanted for her wedding, but more importantly, she knew what she didn't want. The thing I love most about her is that she is not afraid to be herself. She knows her limits, and she doesn't push them. Her style oozes out of her, and she OWNS it! She has the right mix of art appreciation and love of color, but she knows when enough is enough. She found her perfect match in Justin, who gracefully lets her be herself, but also pulls her in and holds her close when she needs more than just herself. Their wedding day was the exquisite culmination of their relationship, and it reflected their personalities, both separately and together.

Today's colorful Brooks Museum wedding is such a special one! Lana and Darren are such kind-hearted souls with the sweetest love story. Lana is a designer, and loves art in all its shapes and forms. She brought that vibe to her wedding day with bright pops of color and style (just wait till you see her dress)! Art is such a big part of her life that she and Darren decided to have their reception in an art museum! Even though every detail of their wedding was gorgeous, my favorite part of their day was something small that came from the heart. Keep scrolling to find out what it was...

We are so excited to share this Ballet Memphis wedding with you guys today! We have decided that ALL wedding receptions should be held in a dance studio. The sprung floors are literally made for dancing! This dance mom approves 110%. It felt fabulous on the feet all night long, and it looked gorgeous to boot! Ballet Memphis, like every great dancer, dressed up and performed beyond all expectations!

If you follow me on social media, I apologize in advance. I'm going to be posting a ton of images from this Memphis Country Club wedding! It was so beautiful and full of amazing details. The bride and groom are totally model status, and the reception was a party to remember! But most of all, Bailey and Will create love wherever they go. Love for each other, love for their families, love for their friends (they had the biggest wedding party we've ever had!), and even love for people they don't even know that well. They are such loving souls and their day was a complete reflection of them! Keep scrolling to see some of our favorite moments from this incredible day!

The best weddings, to us, are the ones that celebrate family. A brand new family forms the minute a bride and groom say "I do." Two already existing families are joined into one. One family gets a new daughter. The other, a new son. Together, these families spend a whole day rejoicing over love and togetherness. Elizabeth's and Sam's day was all about family. Their siblings stood beside them in the wedding party. Elizabeth's mom was by her side the entire day, sneaking in hugs wherever she could. She shared a special heart-wrenching First Look with her dad. Sam's dad helped him dress in the morning. Elizabeth's grandmother ministered their communion during the ceremony. They were both surrounded by the ones they love the most all day long, and that is what truly made this day so special.

We are so excited to share this gorgeous Memphis Columns wedding with you today! This was the last of our 2017 weddings, and it was one for the books! If I could clone this wedding and shoot it over and over, I would in a heartbeat. Everything about it was perfect. There were happy tears, lots of hugs, and TONS of laughing (and the sweetest daddy daughter First Look)! Every detail was beautiful. Best of all, Morgan and Jeremy have hearts of gold, and we are so proud to call them friends. This wedding was definitely the grand finale of our year!

There are some couples that, every once in awhile, come along and make us realize how lucky we are to know them. That make us better. That care more about others than anything else. That, even on their own wedding day, on a day that's supposed to be all about them, somehow make it about everyone else. Michelle and Joe are that kind of couple.
