Memphis Wedding: Matt + Natalie

Matt & Natalie’s wedding was full of deep love, lots of laughter and a lot of emotion! It’s so inspiring to see two families with such strong family values come together and celebrate the joining of their clans. We could tell instantly that these two came from loving homes with all the support in the world.

Matt is a also a wedding photographer down in Florida, so we were especially honored to come down and shoot their wedding in Natalie’s hometown of Memphis! It’s always hard for photographers to be present at their own weddings without worrying about what the photographer is doing, so we are happy to be able to take that burden off of his mind for that big day!

This wedding was so exciting for both families!! There was a great joy! Because Natalie would be moving the next day down to Florida, there was also a lot of tears! They capped the evening off with an awesome flash mob style dance of thriller by the brides immediate family…it was amazing!

Here are my favs from the day…

Both Natalie and Matt got ready for the day in separate areas of the church. Each of them opened gifts from each other- Matt gave Natalie pearls that would become a family heirloom and Natalie gave Matt an amazing scrapbook documenting everything from the first time they met and all throughout their relationship. It was touching to see each of them read their letters from each other!

When Natalie was all ready, she walked in to see her dad! Natalie has an amazing bond with her dad and this was one of the many touching moments of the day.

After Natalie saw her dad, it was time to see the man she was going to marry! Matt nervous and excited to see his bride was waiting patiently outside the church. He was blown away when he saw Natalie!

Matt & Natalie’s ceremony was one of our favorites. After Don walked his beautiful daughter down the aisle, he administered most of the ceremony. The wisdom, love and advice he had for this couple and for everyone in the room was rich! This was also one of the biggest ceremonies we’ve ever been to with over 500 guests!!

This was not a tradition that Matt and I were used to- 2 wedding cakes: a bride cake and a groom cake! Loved it! Can you tell who’s is who’s? The cakes were unbelievable.

While the guests waited outside getting ready for the sparkler exit, Matt & Natalie had the big empty ballroom to themselves and this is where they shared their intimate first dance!

They left the party in style! I was pretty sure something was going to light on fire!
