Who could forget Tiffany + Patrick’s tulip dreamland engagement session at The Dixon Gallery and Gardens?

I’m pretty sure their images made every single person in Memphis, engaged or not, take a tour of the Tulips at the Dixon. We absolutely love this venue (with or without the tulips) because it just has so much to offer.

One of our favorite parts about Tiffany and Patrick’s wedding was the placement of their ceremony. We’ve shot several weddings at the Dixon, and we had never seen anyone have their ceremony in that location. We freaking loved it. It was absolutely gorgeous, and I have a feeling, they will be trendsetters for weddings in the future at the Dixon. Tiffany and Patrick hired Ashley Oldham of 117 Event Design, and thanks to her and all of T + P’s wonderful vendors, the day went on without a hitch! Kasey Acuff did Tiffany’s makeup, and it lasted the entire night (even with tears of joy and killer dance moves!) Emily McElhaney did Tiffany’s hair and it didn’t move the entire night (and Tiffany truly danced the night away with Patrick.) Tiffany and Patrick hired Holliday Flowers and Events as their florists, and we heard the guests constant comments on how gorgeous it all looked. DeepBlu Entertainment rocked the entire night away (as always) under a gorgeous clear tint with dozens of sparkling strung lights that made the night feel even more enchanting! CFY Catering knocked it out of the ballpark once again with some of the most delicious food, the guests just kept coming back for more. VMWeddings Studio were Tiffany and Patrick’s wedding videographers and we cannot recommend them enough. They are absolutely wonderful and you can view T + P’s highlight video here.

Tiffany and Patrick are some of the greatest people we’ve ever worked with. They listened and trusted our direction and their day was absolutely flawless. At one point, Tiffany requested that the some of the underlying netting in her dress be cut because it kept catching. As apprehensive as I was to take an actual KNIFE to her dress, she assured me it was fine and what she wanted. I’ve never been so nervous and made 15 people be my witness. Haha, we love how they fully trusted us. Tiffany and Patrick, we hope you guys enjoy re-living this special day!

Remember Sarah and Beck (aka Chris Martin?)

What’s left to say about these babes that I didn’t say in their engagement session post? (^) There is no couple we would have rather spent Earth Day with than sweet Sarah + Beck.

It actually rained/misted most of Sarah and Beck’s day, but that didn’t get them down even a little. Sarah and Beck had their ceremony at Colonial Park United Methodist Church which is where they did their private first look. Thankfully this church in particular, had great covered areas for outdoor photos. Since Sarah and Beck’s first date was at Hog and Hominy, it only made sense to take a few fun bride and groom portraits there. Sarah and Beck got to sip champagne and split a peanut butter pie (which we all highly recommend) in the VERY same booth they had their first date in. That’s one thing we love most about Sarah and Beck. They are extremely intentional, and it truly reflects in their photos. Sarah nearly brought Beck to his knees in her stunning Anne Barge gown she purchased from Maggie Louise Bridal.

After snapping a few shots at Hog and Hominy, we went back to the church to wrap up with the rest of the formal portraits. Minutes before the ceremony, Sarah had gifts for both of her parents and then her precious dad prayed over them both. We absolutely love Sarah and Beck for so many reasons, and being with them on their wedding day was so incredible. Through Sarah and Beck’s engagement, we got to know her family (which doesn’t happen very often) and now we just love them so much as well. Sarah and Beck are so very loved by all who know them, and that was obvious for all to see.

Sarah and Beck’s reception was at The Memphis Zoo at Teton Trek. The stunning florals were provided by L and Jay Productions.

Sarah and Beck had Amy Tyler Weddings and +Events  as their wedding planner and the day ran smoothly! Sarah and Beck and their guests were completely entertained and danced the entire night away thanks to The Soul Shockers. Sarah’s makeup lasted the entire night (despite rain, tears, and killer dance moves) thanks to none other than Queen Kasey Acuff.

Sarah and Beck, thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your special day.

2017.

I feel like I blinked and it’s gone. What a year. Let me say it again, WHAT A YEAR!?

This is the fifth time we have ever put together our annual “year in review” and let me tell you, it is NOT easy picking the best of the best. This post alone took us five or six days to compile, but being able to look back and reflect is the best feeling in the world.

I’ll be honest. 2017 was our very best year in terms of work. It was also the hardest year we’ve ever had. We shot more weddings in one year than we ever have (48 to be exact) and we’ve honestly just never been as busy as we were this year. You know what they say, busy = blessed and that’s exactly how we feel. We had the very best couples this year, who we are beyond thankful for, and we know 2018 will be so hard to top 2017.

As always, we try not to write too much in our year in review posts. There are close to 500 images total in this post, and that’s an overload as it is. What can I say, it’s hard to narrow it down when every wedding was beyond our wildest dreams.

To our couples, thank you. Thank you for truly trusting us with your most precious and sacred memories. Thank you for investing in us, and for allowing us to have our dream job. We will forever be grateful for you all.

2017, Look what you made me do.

2018, we’re coming for you.
