Stacey & Chris’s Anthropologie Inspired Wedding

DIY, Rustic, Vintage, Retro, these are all wonderful adjectives to describe the look of this next lovely  wedding. The early-October Saturday offered the most splendid weather, temperature, and a premature touch of  fall colors through the trees. Stacey and Chris were so wonderful from beginning to end,  that I may have to make a public dinner invite to them 😉 Seriously, they felt like good friends by the end of the day. The couple is so unconventional, and so of course, was every detail of their wedding! From their quirky engagement shoot to their rustic wedding, our cameras smiled. Because Stacey and Chris put SO MUCH of themselves into each and every detail of their wedding, each photo deserves a little descriptive caption!

Beginning with, the ceremony arch Stacey decorated with cup-cake wrappers.

Stacey and Chris were married at the Union Grove ART Gallery on the groom’s college campus. This lovely setting is an old chapel generally used as an ART gallery for UAH. Stacey had the wonderful idea to use it as a ceremony site– and we believe it to be one of the cutest spots!

Stacey is such an independent woman, and to see her break down like this, brought tears to everyone’s eyes.

And now, please take notes of what happens when you a) trust your photographer fully, and b) reserve a lot of time for “romantics” while the lighting is perfect

Kessa and Randy | {Wedding Photography in Atlanta, GA}

September 19th, 2009 was a wonderful rainy day in Atlanta, GA . The skyscrapers grazed the white thin clouds and just a few sprinkles came down to christen Kessa and Randy’s wedding day. Inside the Four Seasons Hotel, it was an entirely different story — sparkling chandeliers lit the marble floors, each crystal giving off a different shade of colored light; the pristine surfaces decorated with modern orchid and bamboo arrangements , punctually watered by a Four Seasons employee. This day was our first time meeting Kessa and Randy, and we were very excited to do so after over a year of communicating via email and phone.  Kessa was immediately comfortable with us taking her dress, shoes and accessories to photograph; she welcomed us warmly and treated us like long time acquaintances from the very first moment.  Kessa must be one of the most graceful beings, at times it would seem as if she was posing and completely aware of her body and face– but her gaze gave away that her flowy, feminine mannerisms were positively innate. Through the day and evening of Kessa and Randy’s wedding day, we were hugged and loved by their amazing family. A family so special, their love was palpable.  We are incredibly happy that Kessa and Randy have found each other and wish them nothing but the best in their new joined life.

Dorris and Stu | Memphis, Tennessee Wedding Photography

In early September Christine and I traveled to Memphis, TN for a very special wedding couple. Dorris and Stu reside in Washington DC, but chose to marry at the Inn at Hunt Phelan antique home right by Beale St. in downtown Memphis. The first time we met them was at the Madison Hotel the night before their wedding. As soon as we recognized Dorris and Stu, we realized that both the rehearsal dinner and the wedding, were going to be tasteful and unconventional events.

We were warmly welcomed into the top floor’s balcony were their rehearsal dinner was set up, and as we looked around we instinctively began shooting the glittering lights of the bridge, the candid smiles of the guests, and the wobbly dances of the children. The view from the Madison Hotel was mesmerizing–as you can see in the very first shots below.

After our time shooting the dinner, Christine and I ventured to Beale Street, to grab a quick drink {and shoot more pictures, of course} before returning to our Hotel.

memphis2The following day, was wedding time! When we arrived at the Hunt Phelan, the first thing we noticed were the VINTAGE WALLPAPERS, each differing, and more beautiful in every room. Dorris had a stunning creamy silk gown, accented with beautiful beading at the waist and in her one of a kind head-piece. Everything about this wedding  screamed class! The couple, the attire, the venue, the food– everything had been chosen with impeccable taste.  Right down to the BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES, which we adored most of all.

Stu and Dorris were so warm to us all through out the day, and we could not have felt more welcome. Dorris and Stu– we know you have recently returned from your honeymoon {which sounded so quaint and romantic}, thank you so much for making us feel so welcome from beginning to end, we hope you love your images as much as we do :)

Tori & Devin-our dear friends married! | {Missouri Wedding Photography}

We first met Tori and Devin over a year ago at a local coffee store for a wedding consultation simply as clients. We had a great meeting as we chatted about their wedding in Missouri;all while longing to photograph this incredibly good looking fun couple! A few months later we shot their engagement session, began hanging out and….. After over a year, long talks, good drinks, endless board games, many late nights and even more jokes-we consider them our closest friends. At the time, we thought we were so lucky booking their wedding, but what we didn’t know is that with time, we’d be even luckier to be their friends. It was blissful shooting our friends’ wedding because of many many reasons. For example, when we first saw Tori, the morning of their wedding- she let out all her nerves as she energetically greeted us with a slightly too-high-pitched-absolutely-adorable voice! We loved how open, uninhibited, and comfortable Tori and Devin were in front of the cameras all day long- and the whole day just could not have gone more fabulously. Tori and Devin’s wedding was in Kennet Missouri (home town of Sheryl Crow 😉 ); Some of the things we loved about this wedding, besides the marvelous couple of course, were: their first kiss as husband and wife, the guitar shaped groom’s cake, the orange guitar picks they used as wedding favors, and the fact that they allotted a great amount of time for artistics of just the two of them-as the sun dimmed flawlessly.

Enjoy looking at our best friend and her ever so awesome new husband!
