I’m embarrassed to admit the actual number of weddings we photographed in our home state when we were Tennessee residents, but the ones we did shoot, we loved so much! :) Virginia and Lindsey were our last TN couple, and we shot their wedding right after deciding it was time to move back home to Florida but before we put our home up for sale. It was a scary time not knowing if we’d be able to sell the house, whether it would sell quickly or we’d be there for months and months, where exactly  we’d live when we move back to Florida, if it was possible to fit everything in a moving van, if friends in Tennessee would forgive us for moving or Florida friends would still want to see us, etc. etc.

When we moved to Tennessee, my number 1 wedding bucket list hope was to photograph at the Peabody Hotel. It is the most special place in downtown Memphis to me, and where I spent every Thanksgiving growing up. My family would get all gussied up and go to the fancy Thanksgiving Day brunch, hang out with the ducks, get a photo in front of the giant Christmas tree, and then head home to decorate our own. It’s such a special place and it was an absolute dream to finally be able to shoot there. :)

Ah, Murietta’s Well Winery. <3 There are certain wedding locations where you couldn’t take a bad picture if you tried, and this is one of them. Erica and Arminder were married exactly two years after our last wedding at this charming Livermore venue. With my favorite relatives all residing in northern California, I would *love* for this to become a biannual tradition! :)

We met Erica and Arminder at Murietta’s Well and started the day with a first look in the vineyard.

Our brides have had some uh-mazing dresses lately, and I’d be lying if I didn’t say this one was a jaw dropper!

While Erica and Arminder joined their guests for dinner in the cellar, Nate and I enjoyed our vendor meal during sunset on the balcony. I love that one of the most romantic dinners we’ve ever shared was on the job. ;)

An oldie but a goodie, and I’m posting today because I can’t think of a better wedding to kick off our July blog posts! Michelle and Justin were married in the Florida Keys, and their family and friends started the wedding festivities in the historic Old Town Manor. I mean, this bed and breakfast had me the second this little guy greeted us upon arrival! :)

I couldn’t believe it took me nearly a decade of being a Florida resident to make it to the Keys. My favorite thing about the island? Wild roosters! :)

Once upon a time, I met Nick. And on Nick’s birthday, I met his best friend Nate. <3

Nick’s family is full of wonderful, amazing people. His grandparents greet you like long lost friends, his mom has treated me like one of her own since the day we met. His sister is a professional acrobat. His cousin looks like he just stepped off the pages of GQ, but is also one of the kindest people you’ll meet. You get the picture!

When Nick’s Uncle Ron asked us to photograph his wedding, we jumped at the chance! Uncle Ron and Carol were married at Pawley’s Island in South Carolina, where this was the view from the porch of their beach house. Their wedding was so incredibly intimate and emotional, with maybe only 10 people in attendance. We even got to watch Ron and his friends build the arbor! Everything was just perfect.

Dan not only escorted Carol down the aisle, but helped her pick out that incredible dress.
