Not only are Tiffany and Patrick absolutely adorable, they are also ridiculously lucky.

“Why” you ask? They were able to take complete advantage of The Dixon’s tulips in ALL of their glory. No seriously, I shot there 3-4 weeks later, and they were still kicking, just not nearly as bright and bold as they were during this engagement session. Tiffany and Patrick had originally scheduled their engagement session months before this. School and work schedules got in their way and led them to reschedule, but boy OH boy are we glad they did. This engagement session is by far one of our very favorites to date for obvious reasons.

We actually had never met Tiffany and Patrick until their engagement session. They both introduced themselves, and John and I hugged them both (as we always do.) It only took me about five minutes to accidentally call Patrick “Pat” as if I had known him for 20+ years. I guess Patrick has that effect on people! Luckily Tiffany and Patrick both laughed it off and I told them they could call me whatever they wanted for the rest of the day.

Because of Tiffany, Patrick is much better at sharing french fries now and isn’t that really what love is all about? (hehehe!)

These cute kids are getting married THIS month at The Dixon, and we simply cannot wait to celebrate with them! We’re so thrilled to also be working alongside VMWeddings, Kasey Acuff, Emily McElhaney, and Ashley Oldham of 117 Event Design. Clearly Tiffany and Jackson have great taste!

You guys enjoy!

Meet Sarah and Beck, everyone!

These cuties are getting married next month on Earth Day, and John and I are thrilled to be a part of this sweet time in their lives.

When Sarah inquired with us initially she made us blush all day. She was full of compliments, knew a handful of friends whose weddings we had shot, and was beyond ecstatic to be getting married. We’ve got along from the get-go! When we set up a meeting, Sarah brought her dad along. We rarely ever get to be involved with FOB’s, but we were thrilled he got to tag along. He was as kind and polite as Sarah (and who doesn’t just love a super involved daddy?!)

Sarah and Beck had their first date at Hog and Hominy here in Memphis (and now I want pizza.) Ever since their first date these two have been inseparable. These guys absolutely love to adventure together, and probably have a suitcase ready to go at all times. Beck (who I’m convinced looks like Chris Martin) actually proposed to Sarah on their trip out west last year. When the newly engaged couple returned back to Memphis they didn’t get home until almost 1 am. To their surprise, they were greeted with balloons galore sprinkled throughout their house and a giant congralutory sign! Sarah and Beck are very loved.

We’re THRILLED to be capturing Sarah and Beck’s day in April, but for now you’ll have to enjoy these sweet images from their engagement session! Sarah was convinced she would be awkward in photos, but this cute couple, along with some warm sunshine, Sarah and Beck both looked like Kings and Queens!

You guys enjoy!

Remember these cute kids, Natalie and Grant?

I gushed over how much John and I adore them both in this post.

Natalie and Grant got married at Grant’s family home in Columbia, Tennessee. Talk about a charming town, John and I both are just itching to go back. Since we know Natalie’s whole family from her sister and brother-in-law, Kelly and Dusty’s wedding that we shot over three years ago, we felt super comfortable around everyone. We finally met Grant’s family, and they were just as welcoming and loving as the entire Rash family. If there is one thing we know, it’s that Natalie and Grant are extremely loved!

Natalie and Grant had their ceremony on the Jernigan family land, with a gorgeous draped alter adorned with the most gorgeous florals. They were able to get the majority of their formal portraits done before the ceremony. It was wonderful, because there were so many great opportunities we were able to take advantage of. Their bridal party’s attire was a pale pink and a light grey which was perfect for their June wedding. Natalie got her stunning mermaid flair gown at Maggie Louise, here in Collierville, Tennessee. Natalie and Grant’s wedding decor involved organic wreaths with speckles of pastels and gold.

Although it was one of the hottest days of the year, Natalie and Grant never complained once. They were such troopers about the heat and a smile never left their faces.

These love birds danced the night away in their family’s barn where their reception was held.

This lovely couple’s wedding was also featured on Borrowed and Blue which you can view HERE!

As always, it’s such an joy to work alongside VMWeddings, who Natalie and Grant hired to film their wedding. The video is incredible (per usual) so be sure to click HERE to watch it.

Natalie and Grant, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for letting us spend the day with you, enjoy!

Well, I’m just a ball of emotions over here over Ashley and Cody’s Spring Creek Ranch wedding. Why? WHY.NOT?!

We actually didn’t meet Ashley and Cody until their wedding day. Obviously they were just as adorable as we imagined!

Despite the gorgeous photos below, June 4th was actually a pretty stressful day in terms of weather. Throughout the duration of Ashley and Cody’s engagement, they were both 100% set on not seeing each other before the ceremony. Since they were going to have plenty of light after their ceremony, it was totally fine to wait. The day of the wedding, it was 100% chance of rain during their ceremony and after. Ashley and Cody had to make a hard decision, despite tradition see each other for the sake of photos, OR, keep tradition and risk the chance of having no outdoor photos.

They made the right decision, and we are so glad they did.

Ashley found her stunning gown from The Barefoot Bride, and she completely rocked it. Ashley and Cody were very creative in their first look. Ashley walked out holding white balloons in front of her face, and when she was ready, Cody turned around. The first thing they did was reach through the strings tied to the balloons and intertwined fingers. Both of their faces were absolutely perfect. . From that moment on, I felt misty eyed for the rest of the day. If you know me at all, you know I can’t stand crying in public. I hate that people feel they have to comfort you or fix it, but I just couldn’t hold it in on this day.

When Ashley’s dad walked her down the narrow aisle, I felt myself get a little choked up again. I said to myself “PULL IT TOGETHER KELLY, YOU ARE A PROFESSIONAL.” Seriously, at that point in my life I had done over 150 weddings, no issues. So I got a grip, and continued shooting. I made the mistake of watching Ashley’s dad during the ceremony and noticed the tears pouring down his face. Luckily I had a tissue in my bag so I was able to chug along. When the ceremony was over John whispered “Dude, are you gonna make it?” hahahahaha. He knows it’s very unlike me to get emotional. After all, being focused is my main priority.

After Ashley and Cody’s wedding was over, even weeks after, even now, I have a great appreciation for our job. It’s the best job ever, and I will never take it for granted.

Ashley and Cody, you both are blessings! Thank you and your precious families for allowing us  to spend the day with you all!

Enjoy!
