11 Apr Classic Silvery Blue and White Memphis Cadre Winter Wedding
Ed and I are always so uplifted when we shoot weddings that are simply classic and clearly all about the marriage. This beautiful silvery blue winter wedding at the Cadre was definitely one of those! Alicia and Charles are so in love. They are a gentle, quiet couple, and to watch them together is to know that they will be making each other happy for a very long time. From their sweet First Look to the way they sought out each other for a quiet moment during their festive reception, it was obvious that they are right at home in this new family that they have built together.
Classic Silvery Blue and White Memphis Cadre Winter Wedding
I love when brides get ready for the day at their family home. Not only is it extremely personal to them, I learn a lot about the ways that she was raised. Alicia felt right at home as she sipped champagne while the makeup artist gently applied color to her face. Family friends bustled about taking care of details, and I got the rare chance to hear lots of family stories. Walking down the hall, I could see photos of a baby Alicia transforming into an older version of herself. Wedding photos from her parents’ wedding revealed that she grew up in a home where marriage was a priority.
No wedding goes off without a hitch, but Alicia handled all the hurdles the day threw at her in stride. Although she had counted on her brother being with her to share her day, unforeseen circumstances kept him from traveling. Though it clearly made her sad and disappointed, she kept her smile on throughout the day. Later in the evening, she carried him around on her phone during the reception, sharing a FaceTime version of the celebration with him. Such a sweet moment!
Alicia and Charles, I know this blog post is long overdue, but please don’t let that diminish how much we enjoyed your day! We loved every second of your gorgeous wedding, and we are beyond honored to have celebrated it with you. You guys are such a special couple, and we are overjoyed that you are finally now in the same city! Enjoy your love, nurture your marriage, and always carry with you these priceless memories. We love you both!
