One of the very first things Akeilah said to me was, "Our friendship brings the playfulness, craziness, and the candid moments that make us love each other the way we do." Her wedding to Antonio was centered around family, but it was this friendship and interaction between the two that made it so memorable! Their small family has grown with the introduction of their daughter and with her, their relationship has grown in love and respect for the other. These parents have waited many years to become an “official” family by tying the knot at the elegant and modern Clark Opera Memphis Center. Their wedding was as beautiful as they are, and their reactions while walking down the aisle proves it all!

We had been waiting for this day for such a long time! When we first spoke to Alicia and Nick, we were unavailable for their wedding day. They worked with us and changed their wedding date so that we could be there to photograph them on the most important day of their lives. That means so much to us, and words cannot expressed how blessed we are to know these two! It has been nearly an entire year since their Christmas-themed engagement session, so we were so excited to get our cameras on them again!

By the time their wedding day came, Temi and Michael had really already been married for nearly two months. They had a traditional Nigerian wedding... in Nigeria. So they may have been legally married, but Temi had to return to her home in the states, and Michael remained behind to tie up loose ends in Nigeria. So, while they were technically married, they still didn't have much time together, nor were they even in the same time zone!

It was no secret that we were really looking forward to Nicole and Trey's wedding. After meeting them for the first time, we knew that we would be fast friends. The engagement session sealed the deal, and later we even helped them decide on their wedding day signature cocktails. Well, at least we helped them drink them! Nicole and Trey love strongly, laugh often, and fully participate in life. It's clients like these that we love to work with - the ones who become lifelong friends.
