Michelle + Glen || Memphis Wedding Photographer
Boy oh boy, am I glad to be back blogging about some of the best clients in the world! The couple featured on this post has the sweetest story with some serious Memphis love!
I first met Michelle and Glen when I shot their engagement photos. Michelle is from New Jersey and Glen in from the south, but they met in New York and fell in love! Michelle moved with Glen to three different states and when it came time for them to settle down and start their life together as a family, they CHOSE to call Memphis their home! Even these two who have no family ties to the city love it as much as I do, so of course they chose a beautiful downtown venue, The Balinese Ballroom. Their love for this city, and more importantly for each other made their wedding day a BLAST to be a part of!
And here it is, folks! The most precious moment that I get the honor of being a part of every week! The first look! Serious heart eyes over here for Michelle and Glen’s special moment.
These bridesmaids are the coolest girls ever! I’m loving their mismatched dresses to show off their unique style! And Ashlye McCormick did a great job on the bouquets to tie everything together. Stunning!
This takes nontraditional wedding cakes to a whole new level! The bride’s aunt made the top layer and the donuts came from Gibson’s Donuts, a Memphis favorite! You know they’ve made Memphis their home when they love Gibson’s as much as a native!
This right here may have been the highlight of the night. Â NOT to take anything away from my awesome couple. Â But, in their true fun fashion, they decided to have Elvis visit the reception to surprise Michelle’s Mom who has a serious CRUSH on him. Â I’ve never seen someone so surprised and just smitten in all my life. Â What a fun night!
Michelle and Glen, thank you SO much for letting me be part of your engagement and wedding! It is such an honor to get to share in these special moments with wonderful couples like you! I wish you two many years of happiness!
