{Getting Married} Julie + Mark

I was recently invited to photograph the rehearsal dinner of Julie and Mark at Chickasaw Country Club in Memphis. It was a beautiful setting for an evening filled with friends and family who had gathered to honor Julie and Mark.

There were several toasts given, which were funny and touching, resulting in plenty of laughs and a few tears too!

I was honored to be there to document this wonderful night. Congratulations, Julie and Mark!

{Getting Married} Kat + Thomas

I’m so excited to finally start sharing more photos from Kat and Thomas’s wedding weekend!

The rehearsal dinner on Saturday night was at Cafe Keough, located in downtown Memphis. I’d never been to Cafe Keough before, but it was a great venue for the rehearsal dinner. I think everyone enjoyed themselves, and I hope that shows in the photos! Here are a few favorites from that night:

The soon-to-be married folks arrived and were immediately bombarded by nieces and nephews.
Also note: Kat is wearing yellow rain boots because we were experiencing a monsoon that weekend.

This is how loved the nieces and nephews are: Kat and Thomas brought them goodie bags

So much going on in this photo. But Kat has the most expressive face

I, of course, then took a photo of them with my camera

Thomas and his mother Nancy

My FAVORITE, because Kat is just so smitten with the man she’s about to marry

Then it was time for the toasts, which were full of heartwarming stories and well wishes for Kat and Thomas.

Everyone there will understand what I mean when I say, “And then this happened…”

{Getting Married} Jennifer + Chris

I’ll be sharing photos from Jennifer and Chris’s wedding soon, but I actually began my coverage of their wedding at the rehearsal dinner. I loved doing that, because it gave me a chance to get familiar with the bride and groom, along with friends and family who would be there the next day at the ceremony.

I had a great time photographing the rehearsal dinner, so I thought I’d post some snapshots from that night before I share their wedding photos with you!
