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!

Dennis + Madeline - Cedar Hall

"God led Madeline to a job at Windyke Country Club in Memphis. Not long after being there, she said there was a young man who came in inquiring about a membership ... Enter Dennis..."

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) ;)!

Rob + Rebecca - Wedding Film / Junior League of Memphis

"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
