I think this is the last of my really, really old ones- Well, at least the ones that took place over a year ago. ;)
You may remember Ashley and Brian’s session with their ridiculously adorable daughter, Ariella. We photographed their family around the Boardwalk last Christmas, and meeting the three of them, it was obvious we were in for a great wedding day! Ashley started her morning at the Boardwalk Inn, getting her hair and make-up done by rockstar stylist Kalie of About Face. We shot Kalie’s wedding yeeeeeears ago, and she’s one of the best hair and make-up talents in town. Book her!!
I love this one of Ashley’s and Ariella’s shoes and the sparkle they made on the wall. :)
Seriously. Go hire Kalie! :)
I loved the southern feel to Ashley and Ariella’s dresses! So much gorgeous lace.
I mean…… <3
Flower girls: The struggle is real!!
Faaaaaaaaaaaaavorite!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
That caaaaaaaake! <3 The party continued over at the Atlantic Dance Hall. <3
Ashley, Brian, and Ariella, we wish you all the happiest of ever afters! <3
Another one from the archives: Susie and Adam’s Disney wedding. :) These guys came to us from across the pond and got married in the Wedding Pavilion, enjoyed lunch with their guests afterward in The Living Seas Salon, and that evening, dessert and dancing in the Grand Floridian Convention Center. They are tons and tons and tons of fun, and their wedding day absolutely flew by. Susie and Adam, thank you for having us!! <3
And now some preview photos for the most patient couple ever- Kristen and Scott! <3
Kristen and Scott were married at Normandy Farm in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania- It was actually the second wedding we’ve photographed at this venue! Kristen found us through Hallpants’s parents when she used to work with them at Disney, and I couldn’t be happier that she remembered us when she got engaged. Kristen is happiness personified and truly became one of my all-time favorite brides, and I don’t know that I can remember a groom as smitten as Scott!
I’m so happy to have these two in our little Root family, but also as new friends. Can’t wait to share the rest soon, y’all! <3
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. :)
One of Virginia’s bridesmaids had temporary tattoos made of their dog Nigel. :)
Bridesmaid photos on the Peabody rooftop? Dream come true moment for me! :)
I loooooove when couples exchange gifts during the first look! :)
Oh yeah- One of her bridesmaids was Hailey from Ready for Love. :)
Virginia and Lindsey were married in Memphis’s gorgeous Calvary Episcopal Church.
Their reception continued at the Center for Southern Folklore in downtown Memphis!
Nigel totally made an appearance at the wedding!!!
Had to grab a photo with Emily and Stephen, our awesome couple who referred us. Thank y’all!!!! <3
Thanks for having us, Virginia and Lindsey!!!! :)
