04 Jan tammy + george: joined. a memphis wedding.
George is a man who loves a little intrigue. When he knew that he wanted to be with Tammy forever, he told her he was taking her on a trip, but didn’t say where. Instead, he gave her a handful of paper letters to unscramble. When she was done deciphering, the letters spelled out The Road to Hana. Tammy was thrilled to be going to Maui, but she did not know that there was another more important surprise to come. There, on a Hawaiian beach, George dropped to one knee and asked Tammy to share her life with him forever. Tammy quickly said yes, and pocketed a rock from the beach that they both will never forget.
Tammy and George were married on Christmas Eve, in a small ceremony with only their children present as guests. It was a beautiful union of their love, and their families. The preparation for their day began at Schaeffer Chapel.
Tammy’s daughter helped her get into her dress, and her soon-to-be stepdaughter helped with her jewelry.
Meanwhile, George was showing Tammy’s son a thing or two about tying a tie.
Tammy and George chose to see each other before the ceremony, and I just love this moment when George gets the first look at his bride! The First Look is always intimate and emotional, and George was surprised to find tears in his eyes. It’s always special when we can capture priceless moments like this.
The day could not have been more beautiful for wedding portraits – not too cold, even for December! Photo on the right is Ed’s.
One of my favorites!
Tammy, you made one gorgeous bride!
The ceremony was simple but beautiful.
Ed is always so good at capturing emotional moments!
Family and bridal party portraits all in one! Everyone had fun with the camera, which I always love!
A few more portraits in the amazing light.
My favorite photo of the day, hands down. Tammy was such a blissful bride!
