Phillip + Kristen - Wedding Video / The Cadre Memphis

This one is a tear jerker for sure! Watch and let me know what made you cry more- Phillip and Kristen's first look or when Phillip gets emotional seeing Kristen walk down the aisle. I had the honor to film Phillip and Kristen's rehearsal dinner too, and left feeling like I had known then forever thanks to the sweet, emotional toasts from family and friends. These two are a match made in heaven and everyone agreed. I sure had a blast putting this together!

Hunter + Jennifer - Wedding Video / Spring Creek Ranch

It was such an honor to film the wedding of Hunter and Jennifer! A common comment made over the weekend was "we didn't think this day would come", but it did, and they soaked up every second of it! They were married at Sanctuary On The Square, on the Collierville Square which was decorated BEAUTIFULLY for Christmas, and then had an incredible reception Spring Creek Ranch Weddings! It was such a perfect day!

I could not have asked for a better wedding to be the 100th wedding I've had the honor to film! Did I mention they had a PRONTO PUP STAND at their reception?! Stephanie and Chase are two incredible people, but don't take my word for it- watch their wedding film and listen to the wonderful things their friends and family had to say about them at their rehearsal dinner!

Sydney + Lanier - Wedding Video / 409 South Main Memphis

THIS WEDDING! From the most special rehearsal dinner that started with drinks and appetizers while watching the sunset on the Mississippi River, and ended with some of the most special toasts from the bride and groom's family and friends. To getting to spend the day at the newly renovated 409 South Main working alongside Smash Studios Photography. To Sydney blowing us all away with her beautiful gown from Maggie Louise. To an extra special ceremony where Lanier saw his bride, Sydney, for the first time as she walked down the aisle. To an incredible reception venue with BEAUTIFUL florals and decor by the one and only Deedra Stone Designs. To an amazing meal by Simply Delicious Caterings. THEN the party started with Doctor Zarr's Amazing Funk Monster (who were phenomenal) and the evening wrapped up with KRYSTAL'S cheeseburgers being passed on the dance floor. Honestly, does it get better than that?!

Keeton + Christopher - Wedding Video / Cotesworth Plantation

You is kind. You is smart. You is important.

I was so excited to film Keeton and Chris's wedding at the Cotesworth Plantation, that was used as Celia Foote's home in the movie The Help! Keeton was STUNNING in a dress she designed herself. Not a detail was left forgotten, even down to the mini chocolate pies (let's just hope they left out the secret ingredient) ;)!

Abbie + Chase - Wedding Video / Brookhaven, MS

It was such a treat to travel to Brookhaven, MS for Abbie and Chase's wedding. Brookhaven is the cutest little town, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Inn on Whitworth! Abbie refers to herself as a "fan" of Sami Sue Studios and she's a good one, at that! She's usually the first to like any video I post, and I'm SO glad it's finally her turn. It was such a sweet day for these two! Doesn't Abbie look STUNNING in her dress from KLEINFELD?!

"I would like to raise a glass... to a marriage that was born in Heaven. And may it continue to be so..."

I love filming rehearsal dinners and hearing the bride and groom's family and friends' versions of how the two met and what transpired from there. Watch Rob and Rebecca's wedding film to hear some of the awesome toasts that tell their story so well. This wedding was SO lovely and not a single detail went overlooked. There was a really wonderful team of vendors to ensure just that-

Baby Kate

Hey there!

I'm so glad you found your way here!  I wanted to share with you the latest on what is REALLY going on over at Sami Sue Studios ;).

We welcomed our daughter, Katherine Fay, to our family January 6th!  She has been such a sweet addition and we are all adjusting well.  Her big brother, Jay, loves her oh so much! :)  I am so blessed that this business allows me to be at home with them both.

This weekend I am jumping back into the swing of things and filming my first wedding of the year.  I know 2017 is going to be great!  I'm almost completely booked for the year, so please don't hesitate to inquire if you are interested in having me film your wedding.

xoxo,
Sami Sue
