27 Feb Fall Backyard Wedding with Reception at Memphis Country Club
We love an intimate backyard wedding so much! As a photographer, it’s always so inspiring to shoot in a location we’ve never been. For the bride and groom, it adds so much personal detail to their wedding day. They can honestly say no one else has ever gotten married in that place before! I love that. They are also more comfortable in their own surroundings, and it lends a relaxed, stress-free feeling to the whole day. That’s exactly the kind of wedding day Catherine and Tyler planned.
Fall Backyard Wedding with Reception at Memphis Country Club
Catherine and Tyler were not afraid to design a wedding day that suited them best. They wanted a slow-paced, relaxed day with only their closest friends and family at the ceremony. While they both have a very large group of friends, they chose only their own family to stand beside them as they said their vows in front of the largest backyard tree, with a garland of flowers spiraling around it. Catherine’s family home has several beautiful gardens that made the perfect place for photos. The entire neighborhood was lined with trees that were bathed in yellows, oranges, and reds that were lit on fire by the post-rain sunlight. It was just what I needed to fulfill my Fall-loving heart!
The rain drizzled on and off all day, but Catherine and Tyler did not let the weather bother them at all. They were such troopers, hitting the damp streets for photos. The weather cooperated with us all day. It seemed to know exactly when we needed to be outside, and would shut off the faucet just for us!
After the ceremony, as the sun began to set, everyone moved to the Memphis Country Club for the wedding reception. The venue was decorated beautifully and was large enough to accommodate all the other friends who now joined the family to celebrate Catherine and Tyler’s new marriage. The decor matched Catherine and Tyler’s sophisticated style, and the band kept the party going all night!
Catherine and Tyler, we were so honored to have captured your very personal wedding day! Everything was beautiful, and I know it was exactly what you were envisioning for your first day together as husband and wife. Thank you so much for including us in this very special day!
