{Just Married} Kat + Thomas, Part B

Picking up where Part A left off!

Kat and Thomas’s reception was held at Felicia Suzanne’s, located in downtown Memphis.

First things first: This is the wedding reception for the (IMHO) Queen of local desserts and her Eat Local Memphis husband – the food was going to be GOOD. Want to see the desserts table? All desserts from Muddy’s, of course! Gentle reader, I sampled these desserts so I could report back on their deliciousness – just for you. Everything was delectable!

Chocolate chess pie

lemon thyme butter cookies

Charming hand-written signs by the bride herself

thumbprint cookies

peach pie

Even the little ones had pretty little drinks to sip on!

Wedding cake!

And now, there shall be dancing! First dance as a married couple, father-daughter dance, mother-son dance, free for all, line dancing. ALL THE DANCING!

♥ Heart sunglasses kicked the fun factor up another notch ♥

I thought the yellow rain boots were such an iconic part of Kat’s wedding weekend attire, that ending on a shot of her boots filled with giant pink flowers was quite appropriate

I really hope that these photos were able to convey how much happiness – and, well, FUN, was felt and had by all who were a part of Kat and Thomas’s wedding celebration. And that all the rain that came down that weekend truly does indicate the amount of luck Kat and Thomas will have during their married life. (Because that “luck” came down by the buckets!)


{Just Married} Kat + Thomas, Part A

Everyone kept saying that rain on your wedding day is good luck for the marriage – and, in Kat and Thomas’s case, that must mean they will have the luckiest marriage of them all! The rain that day can accurately be described as a “gully washer.” But that didn’t stop joy and fun from filling Kat and Thomas’s wedding day.

Oh, my bride that day arrived in yellow rain boots, with her “eat cake for breakfast” tote. I like where this is going.

And a pink wedding dress? Yep. Kat was 100% “herself” as a bride!

Kat and her sweet mom, Jan. Love this mother of the bride!

We were able to get some “formal’ portrait groupings before the service.

So. Cute.

And this is probably why one of their nephews had asked his mom the night before if Kat and Thomas are adults! “Oh. I didn’t know that” was his response when his mother said that Kat and Thomas are, in fact, adults. They have as much fun as the kids do!

People begin gathering for the church service/wedding ceremony

A few moments from the ceremony

As I mentioned in the blog containing the Polaroids from Kat and Thomas’s wedding, there were two receptions. The first was a champagne reception at the church, which was an opportunity for the newly married couple to mingle with the wedding guests.

Right then. That’s Part A done. Part B to follow soon!

(There was too much awesomeness for just one blog post!)
