Navy + Gold Downtown Memphis Columns Wedding

Every wedding has a surprise or two up its sleeve. The surprise with this one was that there were no surprises! Everything was as smooth as silk. Not only did everything go off without a hitch, but this sweet couple made our job so easy! They had plenty of gorgeous details, and they gave us plenty of time for lots of portraits. It was so hard narrowing them down for this post! The best part of the whole day, though? We have never seen a couple so happy to be married. We loved every single second of this one!

Ebony and Brandon have a modern, classy style, and their wedding day was no exception! Everything they chose tied their love of downtown in with their love for each other. Every single detail was exactly like them – classic and sophisticated with just a touch of sass, style, and sparkle!

My favorite thing about Ebony and Brandon’s day was that it was full of emotion. Even though they shared a First Look before their ceremony (with a few stray tears), it didn’t stop Ebony from welling up with emotional tears on her way down the isle. Everyone knew just how full her heart was when she saw Brandon at the altar waiting for her. When they finally sealed their love with a kiss, a huge smile spread across her face, and she was giddy with happiness!

Ebony and Brandon were amazing troopers and walked down to the river after their ceremony for a few sunset photos. Ebony sang a repeating “we’re married, we’re married” song the whole way that Brandon assured us mimicked the “we’re engaged” diddy she sang after the proposal! They had waited years for this moment, and they could not have been happier that they day had finally arrived. It was heartwarming to watch!

Ebony and Brandon, I won’t say that you two are lucky to have found each other. It was meant to be! But we do consider ourselves the lucky ones. We are lucky to have known you, lucky to have documented your love, and lucky to be able to celebrate it with you! We love you both to Spain and back.

Ebony and Brandon chose to see each other before the ceremony, and they rode to the First Look location together… but blindfolded!

One of our favorite First Looks ever!

Ebony and Brandon had the sweetest ceremony! It was one part tears, and one part laughter. The perfect mix! Ebony held it together until she turned the corner and Saw Brandon smiling at her from down the isle. Proof that a First Look won’t ruin the moment 😉

Married! After the kiss, Ebony was overjoyed!

We snuck away to the river for a few portraits right at sunset, and the light was divine!

Meanwhile, the Columns was getting all dressed up for the reception. I was in love with these modern centerpieces with a touch of gilded sparkle!

The First Dance, like the rest of the day, was full of emotion and laughter.

Ebony and Brandon, your day was not only perfect, but a perfect representation of your love. I may have already mentioned it (twice), but we loved every second of it! We can’t wait to hear all about your adventures in Spain! Thank you so much for being every bit of who you are. Cheers!
