Melanie + Colin are the epitome of timeless. Their wedding attire, floral arrangements, accessories, invitation suite, and reception details almost stopped my rapid beating photographer’s heart.
Melanie got ready at her parent’s lovely home in Germantown, Tennessee. We spent the morning documenting her details as Kasey Acuff did Melanie’s makeup- which lasted the entire evening, even after dancing the night away.
We were lucky enough to be able to photograph beautifully hand watercolored invitations from Jenn Gietzen. We’re still swooning over those.
Melanie and Colin made the smart decision to see each other before their ceremony, which enabled them to have a few private moments together before the ceremony. This also allowed them to finish with formal photos almost immediately after the ceremony which enabled them to get to their reception super quickly. They were greeted by the talented Holly Hardin, of The Hardin House and joined right in on the party.
The Flour Garden provided the most beautiful and creative cakes we’ve ever seen. The bride’s cake was adorned with florals and real figs that photographed beautifully, and the groom’s cake was made to look exactly like a Yeti cooler. Melanie and Colin’s guests were flipping out over its realistic qualities, so much so, someone tried to open it. We’ve never been more entertained by a band at a reception than when we watched Az IzZ from Atlanta. They performed their hearts out and had Melanie and Colin’s wedding guests on their feet until the pom pom exit.
One of our favorite moments from Melanie and Colin’s special day was their first look. They both had stars in their eyes and tears on their cheeks. They powered through the August heat and got some of the most beautiful portraits we’ve ever seen.
Melanie and Colin, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to be a part of your most special day! We adore you both!
