Morgan + Paxton are every photographer’s dream couple.
This wedding was in April of 2016, but hey, better late than never, right?
These guys booked us back when we lived in San Francisco, so we didn’t get to meet them until the night before their wedding at their rehearsal dinner. John and I were saying hi and introducing ourselves, I was telling Morgan how much I love the name “Paxton” because of my small obsession with Bill Paxton (hello Titanic, Twister, True Lives, and Big Love) to which Morgan replied “well, they’re related.” Cue ALLLLLLL the fan girl tears and all the heart eye emojis. It took me a minute to realize she wasn’t kidding, but it’s true. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to make the wedding (which was probably best because I don’t know that I would have been able to stop the drooling and embarrassing myself) regardless, not only does Paxton have a cool name, he also has a cool relative (Hi, Bill!)
Morgan and Paxton tied the knot at the historic mansion, Hunt-Phelan. John and I had never shot there before, but we instantly fell in love. I’m not sure how much you can love wallpaper without being weird, whatever it was, I was at that point. (Trust me, it was stunning.) Wanda from Hunt-Phelan greeted us and was so friendly and so helpful the entire day. She puts brides at ease and makes their day even more wonderful.
Morgan and Paxton’s wedding was featured in the 2016 Pink Bride Magazine!
These guys tied the knot with part of the Memphis skyline behind them. Right after they kissed, fireworks coincidentally went off, and they danced the entire night away after that. It truly was magical. Morgan and Paxton, thank you so much for allowing us to capture such sweet memories! You guys were an absolute blast!
