I know you guys remember these guys.

They made a statement with their colored powder engagement session, and I just knew their wedding would be an even bigger statement.

Let me back up a bit.

Ashley and I have known each other since we were little girls. Our dads work together, and our families are good friends. Jimmy and Toni (Ashley’s wonderful parents) are the owners of VMweddings Studio. There aren’t enough words for how much we absolutely adore the Woodard family. Jimmy and Toni almost feel like parents to us. They always have our best interest at heart, they give great advice, they work around our spastic selves (and that’s NO easy job), and they treat each other and anyone around them with the upmost respect. Their marriage inspires us, and I am positive that it inspires Ashley and Clay.

Ashley and Clay have been planning this BEAST of a wedding (and I mean that as the highest compliment) for what seems like forever. All of their hard work (with their family’s help) paid off. The Woodard and Presley family were kind enough to include John and I in their rehearsal dinner. It’s so rare for us to sit back and take things in without a camera attached to our face, but we had so much fun. We were able to meet relatives and close friends of A+C, and hear all of the thoughtful speeches their bridal party gave. If I wasn’t laughing I was crying. We felt honored to be guests.

Even though the entire week leading up to A+C’s big day called for rain (like 90% chance, people) it couldn’t have been any prettier. We’re talking BLUE skies and sunshine. Their day with the help of some pretty sweet vendors: (Heartwood Hall, Lynn Doyle Flowers, Kasey Acuff, and Barefoot Bride, just to name a few) was absolutely perfect. This wedding was in a league of its own:

A plethora of teapots, garden roses, pink peonies, penguin cake toppers, ribbon wands, navy gingham with pink accessories, and monograms galore. I mean, I’ve never seen so many beautiful things in one room.

Ashley and Clay, you make us (and everyone you meet) so happy! Thanks for allowing US to be on this journey with you!

Enjoy!

Meet Kelsi and Ragan, basically the cutest kids you’ll ever meet.

THIS is how they proposed to US:

photographer proposal

and for that, we’ll forever love them.

We instantly hit it off with K+R. We talked for an hour or two about friends we had in common, our obsession with our fur children, and all about the wedding in October. You can only imagine how PSYCHED we were when she sent me this little text.

Kelsi and Ragan are so compatible. They made our job absolutely effortless.

When we met up with them for these engagements, Kelsi took our breath away. Talk about a knock out. She’s a tiny blonde bombshell with a giant lovable personality. It’s no secret why Ragan is simply smitten around her.

I kept telling Kelsi she looked like Miranda Lambert’s doppelgänger. Her makeup completely set the romantic mood for this session (huge thanks to Kasey Acuff for doing what she was born to do.)

We love when our couples know what they want. Kelsi and Ragan were NO exception to that. They had the most perfect outfits for such a sweet and simple engagement session!

You guys are the best and we CAN NOT wait for October!

Tennessee wedding photography, Farmers Market Wedding

 I never know where to start with my posts.

Before I do, I should mention, Lena and Sallis’ wedding was featured on RUFFLED!

AND THE HUFFINGTON POST

Remember Lena and Sallis? (How could you not?)

I remember the first time I ever met this creative one of a kind couple. John and I left our meeting so hopeful. We wanted them to be our couple. We totally ‘got’ Lena’s vision for a complete DIY farmer’s market wedding. And then…. As if Lena and Sallis weren’t cool enough, Lena whisperered “my dress is blue!” 

Que the inner nerd inside of us, because John and I danced for the rest of the evening. (SIDE NOTE: speaking of John, I cannot tell you how many of these gorgeous images below are compliments of him, I could not have done even half of this without him! YOU’RE THE BEST!)

Not only were Lena and Sallis slamming it down with their edgy style, the bridal party attire was some of our favorites! The bridesmaids wore lace dresses from Free People and Anthropologie, and the groomsmen all had colorful gingham with adorable suspenders. Their flowers….. wildflower bouquets and boutonnieres compliments of THE best Lynn Doyle Flowers, talk about an artist. 

I wish someone could have recorded our faces when we walked into the Farmer’s Market Barn. It was completely decorated from top to bottom. I saw dozens of chalkboards with hand lettered chalk, custom hand stamped yarmulkes, thousands of twinkling lights, mix matched bunting galore, custom art, tassels of fabric, ferns lining the aisle, I could go on and on, but I really should let the images do the talking, after all, my degree is in art, not journalism. But before I do, I just HAVE to share this:

When I asked Lena and Sallis what their initial inspiration was for their wedding, my jaw dropped, I had tears in my eyes, and chills all over my body: “The Farmer’s Market offered ample opportunity for us to creatively construct a shabby chic wonderland lit by thousands of twinkling lights. We wanted our theme to be something fun and funky that harkened back to our southern roots and emphasized our love for a simpler time.” Lena and Sallis didn’t follow any common trends, they strayed away from typical traditions, and made their wedding the Lena and Sallis way. From the hand cut Ketubah that Lena did herself, to the dozen of wine/whisky bottles that were collected over the years from celebrations and date nights, and then hand painted on, to the thousands of twinkling lights that Lena and Sallis hung themselves, to the mix match pattern bunting that added the perfect amount of twang, to the linen strung chuppah stitched with the Star of David that Lena and Sallis snuck over and danced under when no one was looking, the day was made perfect because of all the time, and hard work that this couple put into their wedding. I asked Lena what her favorite memory from the day was, assuming she’d say “seeing Sallis for the first time,” or, “our first kiss.” No, not Lena, here’s the perfect answer she gave me: “The moment I walked into the barn when I was about to walk down the aisle. The orange colored glow of it all. I will never forget the lighting and the excitement of being steps away from being married.” I love that the artist inside of her most remembered the color of her day.

Lena and Sallis, we’re so thankful for you. We’re thankful you chose us to document such a special day, we’re thankful for how creative and perfect you guys are, and most of all, we’re thankful for your friendship! We love you both!

Enjoy!

I have a secret…

We freaking love Claire and David.

Seriously, they are THE best. I knew from the first initial email that I liked Claire. John and I were so hopeful she and David would feel the same way about us. Luckily they did, and we’re so looking forward to shooting their wedding later this year.

Claire and David are currently living in Charlotte, North Carolina, but are both originally from Memphis. They wanted their engagements to reflect the great city they grew up in.

Never have I EVER photographed such natural people. When I would pose these love birds, they would oh so naturally morph into the next one. They are so extremely comfortable together. We have a feeling these cuties will have a lifetime of happiness together. All they did was giggle, and we were totally ok with that.

Since this engagement session, Claire has sent me some amazing encouragement. She is so kind, and uplifting. I’m thankful for how supportive and generous our brides our with the sweet words and contagious spirits.

Claire and David, we CANNOT wait for August to get here!

Enjoy!

How do I ever start this post?

We count our bountiful blessings and thank God for all of the grand adventures we’ve had the opportunity of taking part in thanks to our passion and profession. We’ve traveled North, South, East, and West to capture the stories of individuals who are just as passionate about love as we are. We’ve shot with our toes in the sand in the tropical Dominican Republic all the way to the tip top of the FedEx Forum rooftop (as we clasped our cameras with clammy hands). We witnessed a miracle once, when I (Kelly) got to document a live birth, and have had fun passes that allowed us to walk on college stadium football fields. All of those things are SO incredible, and we feel so blessed we’re allowed to do what we do, but let me tell you what else is SUCH an honor and a blessing: Documenting your best friend’s wedding:

Remember Nathalia and Gene? Our edgy couple that were ‘clients’ turned friends? What on earth would we do without them? We come in contact with so many wonderful people, and Nathalia and Gene definitely slide RIGHT into that category. It’s times like these, when I look back and can see part of God’s plan. It’s like we were supposed to meet this inspiring couple ALL along. We often get to hang out with these love birds, and they always make us feel SO very special. We never feel rushed when we’re with them, and in this day and age, everyone (including ourselves) is always in a hurry, with their busy agendas. Not Nathalia and Gene, they’re so loyal to the ones they love, and we know we’re lucky to know them.

So what exactly happens when an edgy Indonesian princess crosses paths with a tattooed, charming Italian? A legendary life, that’s what happens. Nathalia and Gene got married at Heartwood Hall in Piperton, Tennessee. It was the perfect amount of twang to their Spring Wedding. Nathalia and Gene, we love you both so very much and we’re so thankful to call you friends.

We hope you enjoy these!
