Shea & Kelsey Connor - A Vintage Wedding at Woodruff-Fontaine Museum in Memphis, TN | Memphis, Tn Wedding Photographer
MR & MRS SHEA CONNOR | MEMPHIS, TN
APRIL 30TH, 2016
I know you guys remember the adorable couple I photographed last fall with the favorite image called "The Mantle Piece", right? Well here they are again.....
And now they are HAPPILY MARRIED!!! So surreal. I met this awesome couple last summer and they were referred to me by my best friend, Meagen. *thanks beeb* We talked over coffee at the incredible City & State Coffee house in Midtown, in the arts district of Broad Ave. Quickly became one of my favorite places to stop in when I'm in the area. We instantly clicked. These two had my heart from the moment I saw them interacting through the window of the store. My favorite thing about them was that they are just as weird as I am. They let me have full rein over their engagement pictures and we laughed until we cried...... twice.
Fast forward to April 30th, and while we had a little bit of a problem in the beginning of the day, Kelsey kicked in gear and completely transformed the entire day. We went from gloomy and overcast skies, to sweating by the first dance because the sun came out!! I absolutely LOVED their venue, The Woodruff-Fontaine Museum located just off of Adams in Downtown. They have awesome tours all year long and special ones on specific holidays. Be sure to find them on Facebook to keep up with all of their events!
Besides their amazing venue, Kelsey's details were so quirky! It was right up my alley. While I couldn't get over every little detail, the day as a whole was intimate and joyful and as unique as Kelsey and Shea are. Every single thing from their awesome bridal wreaths to the groomsmen funky patterned ties had a touch of Kelsey and Shea. These don't even put a dent into the images we captured this day, but here are some of our favorites!
We had to end this celebration of Shea and Kelsey's brand new marriage by hopping into the bar across the street from their venue called, Mollie Fontaine Lounge. If you are ever in the area, I highly, HIGHLY, suggest stopping by this place.
Jacob, Cassie and I were tremendously honored to have spent the day with you and documenting your journey into marriage. You guys have become SUCH great friends of ours, I am forever grateful to have you in my life as well as excited to watch your sweet family grow! <3
