My posts have been getting longer and longer, which I try to avoid (you know, let my work speak for itself) but it’s not happening on this post. I have too much to say.
I know you all remember this dynamic duo.
John and I started preparing for this wedding the moment I was informed that WE would have the honor to document it (lets face it, any Memphis photographer would have killed to shoot it).
John and I were already friends with both Kelly and Dusty, but I feel that when a friend asks you to shoot their wedding, that is the biggest honor possible. We love both Kelly and Dusty so very much. Kelly even bought us little ‘happies’ as thank you’s for shooting her wedding.
(I got a dazzling Kate Spade watch, and John got a new PS3 game, they TOTALLY speak our language.)
Not only are K&D so very giving and generous, but they are BOTH so supportive. I realize that I often mention my supportive friends, but Kelly and Dusty are by far the most supportive. They literally ‘like’ and share ALL of my posts, they tell ALL of their friends and family about us, and toot our horns for us on a daily basis. We are beyond thankful for Kelly and Dusty.
I am absolutely thrilled to announce that Kelly and Dusty’s wedding will be featured in At Home Tennessee’s January edition. This sweet couple definitely deserves that kind of exposure.
I had never met Kelly’s parent’s before her wedding, but was Facebook friends with her precious mom. Mrs. Nancy, or ‘momma Rash’ has always been so kind to me. When I finally got to hug her neck, it didn’t feel like I was hugging a stranger, it felt like I was hugging my mom. I know Kelly’s heart of gold comes from both of her wonderful parents.
When Kelly told me she reserved the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art for her wedding ceremony and reception, I’ll admit I geeked out a little. My degree is in art, and I’ve only made 100 trips to the Brooks in the last 5+ years. I knew exactly what type of treasure it was, and it was SO completely perfect for Kelly and Dusty. The Brooks Museum of Art is located at the heart of Memphis in the historic Overton Park. The Beaux Art Style building is constructed of flawless Georgian marble, and I knew it would make for stunning photos!
Everything about Kelly and Dusty’s wedding was nothing short of magical. Kelly hired Michael Doyle of Lynn Doyle Flowers to create her vision of arrangements and decor. I hired him for my wedding two years ago, and my sister did the same seven years ago. I highly recommend him to ANYONE looking. I have quite a few of his masterpieces sprinkled throughout this post.
From the gorgeous shades of lavender, the flawless fall weather, and all of the perfect priceless emotions, Kelly and Dusty had one of the most amazing days I’ve ever been a part of.
K&D, I can’t tell you enough how thankful we are for both of you. I’m so glad that we finally found a couple who is as crazy about each other as we are, and we absolutely cannot wait to watch you grow in life and love!
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Warren, enjoy!
We wish you a lifetime of love and laughter!
