Bellevue Baptist Church Cordova Wedding : Raymond + Sarah

Sunday, March 26th, 2017

Raymond and Sarah’s Bellevue Baptist Church wedding yesterday was a sweet day surrounded by precious people. We got to know this couple last year during their engagement session and one of the things we appreciate about them most is their ability to laugh together. Their joy is contagious and to know them is to love them.

We are always thrilled when our couple’s choose to do a “first look” on their wedding day because we have more time with them before the ceremony, but Raymond and Sarah had us in tears. When Raymond turned around to see his bride, he let out the words, “Oh Sarah!!” From that moment on, this sweet couple had quickly found a special place in our hearts.

Raymond and Sarah … we are so thrilled for you! Thank you for letting us be a part of your lives on such a beautiful day!

Dixon Gallery & Gardens: Spring in Memphis

Monday, March 20th, 2017

Our wedding yesterday was a private event at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens. Everything was perfectly lovely, and our couple and their families were wonderful to work with.

In honor of the first day of Spring, here are few blossoms from our wedding that are currently in bloom at the beautiful Dixon. It’s one of the many wonderful wedding venues in Memphis where we love to photograph.

Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary Cordova Wedding: Dane + Carrie

Sunday, March 19th, 2017

After a few weeks of family time and rest, we started our 2017 weddings yesterday with Dane and Carrie at Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary. I first spoke with Carrie just a few months ago, but I’ve heard about her through countless friends at our church. She is one of those people that everyone loves, and her family is one of those families that no one forgets. Carrie’s sweet father, Blake, went to be with the Lord recently after an aggressive battle with cancer. After a lifetime of following hard after Christ and serving as a pastor in California, he left a legacy of a truly beautiful family who serve the Lord and point to Jesus even in the middle of the hardest of times. Yesterday was a celebration of Dane and Carrie, and a beautiful picture of new beginnings growing out of a rich heritage of love.

All wedding stories are beautiful, but Dane and Carrie’s is one we won’t soon forget. What a privilege to be a part of your day and to tell your story. Thank you for allowing us into your lives – it is an honor.
