10 Jan Colorful, Artistic Memphis Brooks Museum Wedding
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…
Both Lana and Darren have huge hearts, and gifting is a big way of how they show it. They share a piece of themselves (and their earnings!) with intentional gifts presented with care to those who are most important to them. On the wedding day, everyone got a carefully chosen object to commemorate the day.
Like most of our brides and grooms, they also got a gift for each other. But not just any gift. They each chose the other’s wedding ring, only to be revealed during the wedding ceremony. That meant that the first time they saw their wedding rings would be when they said their vows and pledged their lives to each other. I LOVED THIS IDEA!!!

Lana + Darren
Being the photographer, I got to get a peek at them before they exchanged them, so that I could sneakily photograph them with their other wedding details. Little did Lana know that Darren got her TWO wedding bands – each a delicate ring of gems.
The whole day unveiled (pun intended!) with similar unforgettable moments. Photos were very important to Lana and Darren, so they allowed for a First Look, plenty of portrait time at the Peabody where they were getting ready, and sunset photos later at the Brooks Museum as well. Darren is such a loving guy, and we were just smitten with the way he adores Lana. He is always gently holding her, caressing her, or giving her soft kisses. This guy is in love, and he is not afraid to show just how much!
Lana and Darren, your day was filled with all the dreams that we expected, and lots more that we didn’t. Thank you so much for allowing us to accompany you on this journey! We are honored to have captured your unique wedding day, and even more so to know your little family! Enjoy this small peek through the magic you created!
