courtney + phillip: joined. a memphis wine-themed wedding.

Their guests knew what an important day it was. It was a small gathering, with only those friends and family who were most important to them. This day wasn’t just about the start of their new marriage, it was about the start of their new family. When Courtney and Phillip stood at the altar and pledged their lives to each other, they knew they were not only joining their hands, their rings, but also the hearts of their children. After this day, they were finally one.

Courtney and Phillip’s day was full of their own personalities. Courtney’s sense of humor was obvious when the care package she sent to Phillip that morning contained socks for his cold feet, and breath mints for that very important first kiss. Phillip, who is a chef and maker of fine chocolates, made sure that the food, and especially the cake, met his standards (and it did!). Together, they love vineyards, Napa Valley, and fabulous wine, and made sure that their love of wine was truly represented.

At the end of the day, they included everything that was most important to them: their family, their children, a wine-filled evening of merriment, and each other.

Courtney and Phillip chose to see each other before the ceremony, and their First Look was so sweet! This was Ed’s angle of Courtney seeing her groom for the first time…

Courtney and Phillip, it was a pleasure to not only witness your nuptials, but to be the ones to capture it. The day was beautiful, and so you, and we were honored to be a part of it!

Here’s to the important things. And good food. And wine. Cheers!
