Lindsey and Tyler have such amazing friends and family. The whole wedding day was filled with laughter and good times. All week Lindsey and I were planning around the “what ifs” of rain, but it actually held off and made for some beautiful photos!
But before I share wedding day, I just have to share some from Lindsey’s bridal session at the Memphis Botanic Gardens. Lindsey made such a stunning bride, I was glad we could get some beautiful sunshine photos of her before the wedding.
The wedding day started out at the Madison Hotel in downtown Memphis. The hotel has so much style that Sophie and I knew exactly where we wanted to do the dress shot. The elevator walls were covered in records which was so cool and made the perfect shot. I also stepped out of the box and shot the ring and shoe details on top of a black laqured surface in the bathroom.
“Tyler and I were both born and raised in Memphis, but we didn’t cross paths until we ended up in the same calculus class during the fall of our freshman year at Alabama. Despite sitting a row or two apart from each other the whole semester, we didn’t officially meet until winter break when we were at a mutual friend’s house. He later offered me a ride to Knoxville for Boxing Weekend – where all great love stories begin – and when we returned to Tuscaloosa, he asked me out on our first date.” –Lindsey
“The whole weekend was so special for both of us! It was truly the most amazing experience having so many loved ones from both near and far and from the many different stages of our lives gathered in one place to help us celebrate.”– Lindsey
“Our florist Deedra Stone was SO amazing to work with! The one thing I remember always wanting at my wedding reception was a room full of beautiful flowers, and Deedra far exceeded anything I could’ve ever dreamed of!” – Lindsey
“All of our vendors went above and beyond to make this weekend one that we will always remember! Our planners, Kathryn and Patti with WED Memphis, didn’t overlook a single detail and made sure the whole weekend went off without a hitch. The food by A Moveable Feast was absolutely delicious!! And Kipp with Kipp Cakes! We had so many people ask for her contact info after the wedding. We may not be able to wait ‘til our one-year anniversary to have another bite of her delicious cake!” – Lindsey
After you work weddings for over ten years, you start to develop relationships with vendors. I can honestly tell you that Al from Al Paris and the Heartbreakers ALWAYS puts on a good show. I’m pretty sure he tried to catch my hair on fire at this one, but he does such a great job entertaining the crowd. We even got a visit from Little Richard.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better band than Al Paris and the Heartbreakers! Right after we got engaged, we were advised to book them early, and we are so glad we did! They were absolutely incredible!” -Lindsey
“Our wedding weekend was so much more than we could have ever imagined! We owe a huge thank you to our parents for all that they did to make this weekend so memorable and perfect! And another big thank you to our wonderful, talented, helpful and patient videographers (VMWeddings Studio) and Taylor Square Photography for capturing these special moments for us!” -Lindsey
Lindsey & Tyler thank you so much for allowing us to capture your special day. You are so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family to do life with! Congrats!! – Ann-Marie
