When we first talked with Amy and Emma, there was just an instantaneous connection. It wasn’t long before many hilarious GIF’s were exchanged over text and constant Snapchat messages. And it’s because these two are sweet, kind, beautifully unique, and enjoy laughter. And we knew that this was their genuine selves because that is who they are with one another.
We first met face to face at their Forever Session. We saw Amy’s confidence embolden Emma. We saw Emma’s peaceful demeanor calm Amy. And all in all, we saw two people who are madly in love. And this continued on their wedding day!
A Truly Memphis Wedding
This Memphis wedding was truly Memphis! The Old Dominick Distillery downtown has such an amazing history and atmosphere. And their ceremony on the rooftop had the Memphis skyline and bridge behind them. Amy told us she loves the Mississippi River, and she made sure it was central to their day. The weather was even Memphis-like as the bluffs stopped the rain from the storm clouds for the ceremony to bring nice cool weather (and epic skies!) without a drop.
Right after the ceremony, with their beaming smiles, Amy wanted a moment with just Emma. We cleared the rooftop and let them just relax knowing they are finally married! They describe their relationship as “against all odds” and it was so special for us to get to witness that soft celebration afterwards (and YES, we sneaked in for a couple of shots but we made sure to keep our distance and ninja-like silence!).
A Seriously Good Party
These two were both looking forward to the reception the most! Seeing Red was rocking the dance floor with their great sets of songs. The food by Draper’s, was amazing per usual, and the cake by Mad Lily Cakery was a hit! Plus Holly and Ivy’s florals added so much elegance.
All of this was the backdrop though. The backdrop of two people becoming partners for life with their friends and family cheering them on. We were amazed by the support they had surrounding them that day. You could feel the love for them!
Amy and Emma, you two have stolen our hearts this year! We cannot wait for you to be back in Memphis so we can have regular hang outs!
