Since our last blog post, quite a few things have happened. We have had a months long forced sabbatical, which has given us rest in order to charge ahead over the next few months. We could not have been more excited to shoot this wedding since it was our first one back since Corona, and what a precious couple to open up our wedding season!
Macy and Kyler’s intimate family wedding was so stunning I cannot imagine it being any more beautiful if it had turned out the way originally planned. ~ Ann-Marie
“Kyler and I met through mutual friends at Blue Mountain College. Kyler went to play basketball, and I went for the education program. We got to know each other by hanging out with our friend group. Kyler finally asked me out after BMC’s Fall formal.” – Macy
“We were surprised by how smooth and perfect it felt. We were never rushed. After the first look, all of the nerves were gone. It was so peaceful to be together, surrounded by our family.’ – Macy
“Macy always said she wanted a private proposal. So I thought about where a perfectly beautiful place would be, and it was her family’s cabin on Lake Mohawk. The house sits on a gorgeous pier on the water. Her family helped me so much getting it ready. We laid out hundreds of candles, hundreds of rose petals, and a beautiful hanging tapestry with Macy’s life verse Ephesians 3:20-21 hand-lettered on it. It all happened at sunset, with the sun reflecting off the water. It was just Macy and I. Her family was waiting in the boat off in the water to celebrate. I thought the engagement was the most beautiful moment until the wedding, which took it to a new level.” -Kyler
“Elizabeth Harville, the floral artist from ehblooms in Collierville, did a fantastic job on the floral design. Out of all of the gorgeous flowers, two favorites were the bride’s floral comb and the groom’s pocket square—so much detail in such small beauties.” – Macy
“Due to Coronavirus, we had to change our wedding to a small family wedding at my aunt’s house. Looking back, we would not want it any other way. We were married on my 22nd Birthday. It was intimate and full of love. We planted a unity tree with the roots symbolizing our families, and the tree symbolizing the family we were committing to grow on that day. We ended the ceremony by having our first act as a married couple to be taking communion together. We were blessed to personally serve our small number of guests communion as husband and wife also.” – Macy
“We were married on my 22nd Birthday. I already knew everyone had planned to sing happy birthday to me after we cut the cake. I was completely stunned when Kyler pulled out his guitar to serenade me during the song. It’s was so fun and a memory I will never forget. I did not have a wish for my candles because that day, all my wishes came true.” – Macy
“Kyler and I were completely surprised when we went to leave the reception. The driveway was lined with all the people who were not able to be at the ceremony due to Coronavirus. We had a wedding parade down the driveway walking with our families following behind. It was so special and meaningful to us to wave and see all the people we were unable to invite. We are so blessed to be loved and supported by so many wonderful people.” – Macy
“My advice to future brides would be to remember your priority before the wedding festivities begin. It is to marry the man you love. You will not care about what was not perfect that day. All that matters is that you two become one. So as everyone says, slow down and enjoy all the special moments.” – Macy
