Christian + Andrew’s Wedding at The Dixon Gallery and Gardens || Memphis Wedding Photographer

Boy oh boy! Do you remember the sneak peek image I posted a few weeks ago and bragged that I had already culled through this couples images … THE NIGHT OF THEIR WEDDING! Well … meet Christian & Andrew! They are #sillyinlove and I LOVED every second of it! My second shooter and I met this couple at Kingsway Christian Church where these two would say I DO! Christian told me that her colors were pink and gold but I never in a million years was expecting the beauty that was to follow!

Christian purchased this beauty, a Paloma Blanca gown, from Maggie Louise Bridal located in Collierville, TN. What a stunning gown! Christian had buttons added to the back as well.

So, this was a first. Christian had already purchased her wedding gown when she met this stunner, a Lazaro Bridal. It was love at first sight and she knew she had to have her! So she headed over to the ladies at The Barefoot Bride and decided THIS would be her reception dress. Andrew’s reaction was awesome! Jaw dropping to say the least!

We hung lady Paloma Blanca in the reception room so she could shine on throughout the evening.

The image of the evening ladies and gentlemen. This sums up the whole night. In my mind. When I see this image I can immediately go back there. And who wouldn’t want to go back there?
