John and I can’t believe these kiddos have been married for almost a year.

(Note: for brides reading this blog, just a reminder that Liz + Clint got their images less than two months after their wedding, but finding time to blog these beauties is a whole other story.)

Remember Liz + Clint’s engagement session with their precious pup, Tucker? HOW could you forget? These guys are so special to John and I. Even almost a year after their wedding, they are STILL some of our biggest cheerleaders. Recently, they swung by to pick up their wedding album, and surprised us with a DELICIOUS bottle of red wine. We still get inquiries to this day of potential brides who name drop “Liz + Clint”, and we know why. They are SO loved by all who know them. It’s no wonder they had 80 people in their bridal party. I may have exaggerated that number a bit, but they had an army around them, that’s for sure.

Liz + Clint got married in August and to say it was warm would be an understatement, but it didn’t rain. God bless. These guys had the very sweetest first look. We were very thankful they decided to see each other before because immediately after their ceremony, they were able to jet over to their reception and spend the whole night dancing and mingling with their friends.

One of the most memorable moments John and I reflect back on from Liz + Clint’s wedding day is her first look with her dad. The relationship Liz has with her dad is so sweet and their first look photos are some of our very favorite. It’s no secret Liz is a daddy’s girl, and we love that.

Liz’s parents surprised the newlyweds with an amazing vintage Lincoln Continental classic getaway car. It was the prettiest shade of light blue. Both Liz + Clint were thrilled to have it there for photos and to sneak off in.

Deedra Stone prepared the loveliest florals that made such a statement against the pale blue bridesmaid’s dresses. Liz + Clint’s ceremony was held at Independent Presbyterian Church and their reception was at Chickasaw Country Club. Deedra also adorned the ginormous chandelier with the most stunning florals. It was the talk of the reception, understandably so. Kasey Acuff did Liz’s makeup and Gretchen Campbell did her hair and both lasted all night, despite the August heat.

Liz + Clint danced their entire night away with fun glow sticks, candy necklaces, and even a late night corndog buffet (Liz’s favorite.) It was one of our very favorite receptions and an absolute blast.

Liz + Clint, thanks so much for letting us spend the entire day with you, and for you constant love and support!

Enjoy reliving these moments!

I can’t believe these two have been married for almost an entire year.

(Side note: it just takes that long to finally get around to blogging!)

Remember Kaylee and Taylor? Or as we call them, “Taylee!” HOW could you forget these two gems? I gushed about how lucky Memphis is to have this powerhouse of a couple! Kaylee and Taylor are truly our biggest cheerleaders. They are always shouting our name from the rooftops and loving on us at all times. We can’t thank them enough for all they have done for us and our small business.

Kaylee and Taylor got married at The Tower Center, here in Memphis. Kaylee’s mom told us that the view, venue, and photographer were top priorities of theirs, and we felt so special to be included in such a special day. Being the Memphis loving couple they are, Kaylee and Taylor tied the knot on top of the city, and I can’t think of any better spot than The Tower Center for them to become Mr. + Mrs. Kaylee and Taylor’s wedding vibe was classy, sophisticated, and chic. I would expect NOTHING less from these stylish folks. There were gold and sequin drapery, florals adorning every chandelier, and glitter galore. It made our photographer hearts SKIP a beat.

Holly + Ivy did Kaylee and Taylor’s flowers, and they did such a wonderful job. Kaylee’s bouquet included cascading gold ribbons that provided the perfect amount of sparkle. Kasey Acuff did Kaylee’s makeup which was flawless the entire night, even as she danced the night away. Kaylee’s talented sister Madison created all of the cakes that were not only gorgeous, but also delicious.

Since The Tower Room is at the very top of Clark Tower, we had to find an outside location for photos. We decided on Overton Park. Despite the heat, it was the perfect place for portraits. Thankfully, Kaylee and Taylor saw each other before their ceremony, which enabled them to dance the night away at their reception. Seconds before Taylor turned around to see Kaylee for the first time, he said “Are you ready to see your fixer upper?” That pretty much goes down as our favorite first look moment in history.

Kaylee and Taylor, we love you guys to pieces and are beyond thankful for the love and support you’ve ALWAYS provided. Memphis wouldn’t be the same without you guys!

What can I say about this incredible couple that I didn’t already mention HERE?

Even though Kendall and William’s wedding was last July, we feel like it just happened. Kendall started off as a sweet girl who inquired with me, and now I will forever call her a friend. She’s one of those girls you can just always count on. It’s no secret why both Kendall and William had about 1,000 wedding guests. They are SOOOOO very loved.

These love birds got ready downtown at The Peabody Hotel, and then got married at Immaculate Conception. They had their reception at The Cadre downtown so their wedding guests were able to get a good dose of good ole Memphis. It was so fitting for their classy, timeless personalities. Naturally, July in Memphis is HOTTTTT, that is a given. I won’t lie, this July afternoon was exceptionally hot, and Kendall and William handled it like the champions they are. Kendall got unbearably nervous just seconds before her first look with William, but as soon as he turned around and hugged her, her nerves subsided. These two are absolutely perfect for each other.

We were able to get all of the formal portraits done before the ceremony, so Kendall and William were able to dash off to their reception. When we arrived at their reception, our photographer hearts fluttered. The flowers and decor provided by Garden District and Mona Dunlap were swoon worthy! The delicious food was served by CFY Catering and of course, it was the talk of the evening!

Kendall’s makeup was done by Queen Kasey Acuff herself and Kendall’s long blonde locks were done by Elaine Clayton from Salon 387. Kendall turned every single guest’s head in her stunning Maggie Louise gown. It was romantic, classic, and so Kendall.

Kendall and William, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to capture these sweet moments! We love you dearly!
