Jacob + Harlie - Mallard's Croft

"You make me want to be a better person every day. I love you more than you could possibly know. I vow to always stand by your side and support you, to cherish you and honor you, and to love you wholeheartedly for the rest of my life. I promise I will always communicate with you and put you first. I will spend the rest of my life trying to show you just how much I love you. I promise to stand by your side through all the ups and downs we'll face in life - even the day Tom Brady retires..." 

So thankful I got to witness these two get married! The rain led to a plan B ceremony set up, but ehblooms made it look like plan A! What a beautiful day this was! Congratulations Harlie and Jacob!

Lindsey + Nick - Winter Park Florida / The Capen House

I loved getting the chance to travel to Winter Park, Florida to be a part of Lindsey and Nick's wedding weekend! Lindsey and Nick have been dating for 11 years, and were married on 11/11 at 11:00. It was clearly a perfect day! Having been dating for so long, both families already felt like one big family, but it was so sweet to witness them making it official! Cheers to Mr. and Mrs. Walker!

Kelsey + Justin - Cedar Hall Wedding Video

The prayer you hear at the beginning of this video may sound a bit old, and that's because it is! This is a prayer that Justin's grandfather would recite at every wedding he officiated. Kelsey and Justin thought since he is no longer with us, it would be a special way to include him by having it played during their ceremony. It was such a special moment! 

Kelsey + Justin's wedding day was filled with sweet, intentional moments like that. I am so glad they had me there to film this special day!

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!

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?!

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?!

"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.

It's so nice to step away from reality every weekend to celebrate love. These two were a lot of fun. And how about Lance's accent? I feel like there needs to be a "So I can kiss you anytime I want" in those vows. ;)
