If you’ve been following our blog the past four years, you’d know that even though we live in Nashville, it’s rare that we get to photograph weddings in our home state! Imagine our surprise when our sweet Orlando couple Emily and Stephen moved to Memphis and referred us to new friends Virginia and Lindsey! I always love a reason to visit where I grew up, even if it’s a whirlwind 30 hour trip for a wedding! :)

Virginia began her wedding day getting ready at The Peabody Memphis, my faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaavorite favorite. :)

We’ve had a lucky stream of ADORABLE ring bearers, and Eli did not disappoint. This is him proudly showing Nate his new tattoo of Nigel, Virginia and Lindsey’s dog, made by her amazing bridesmaid Hailey! :)

Favorite. I cannot believe my “grown up job” gives me an excuse to hang out on The Peabody rooftop with beautiful people!

Just two minutes for photos before the sky opens up on them? Check and mark! Their party continued at the Center for Southern Folklore with Amy Miller Weddings & Events on hand to make sure everything was perfect! :)

Not even a year ago, Valerie was a bridesmaid in her best friend Gina’s Disney wedding, and now she’s brought us to Manahawkin to photograph her wedding! :) The Bonnet Island Estate was an absolute dream to photograph, and these two little monkeys were one of my favorite starts to a wedding day, ever!

Oh, just some flowers the florist designed. The florist who also happened to be the father of the bride. :)

Valerie’s personality was so infectious, and her nervous giggles at the altar were my favorite!

Candice and Jeremy’s wedding marked the first time in years we were able to photograph an Epcot wedding! Epcot weddings are my favorite. Even though Nate and I aren’t really “morning people” with our late night work hours, there’s something exhilarating about getting in the car to photograph a wedding and showing up at the hotel before the sun does. It reminds me of being a kid and getting up at 3am and driving to Walt Disney World in our pajamas.

I love showing up in a hotel room where the bride has been up since 4am, and was too excited to sleep the night before, and so everyone in the room is running on love and adrenaline. And I feel sort of like I belong to a special club- I mean, how many other wedding photographers in the world have a 6am start time on a Wednesday? :)

Candice’s sweet nephew held his hand over his heart, national anthem style, as she walked down the aisle. <3
