Intimate Garden Elopement at Memphis Botanic Garden | Shelbe + Tevin Moore | The Hatches Wedding + Elopement Photography
Mr & Mrs Tevin Moore
Meet one of my favorite couples to date, Shelbe and Tevin Moore.
Little backstory : Shelbe is actually a teacher at Senatobia Elementary (my hometown) and one of her students is the daughter of my uncle who recently passed away from Cystic Fibrosis. Layton spoke very highly of her teacher and I can see why!
We met back in November of 2016 after her fiance, Tevin saw pictures of another couple I had taken and both him and Shelbe wanted Jacob and I for their wedding!
Needless to say, we met, talked all things wedding and I was completely hooked on them as a couple. I could have talked with them for hours!
They were planning an elaborate wedding at Hillwood at Davies Manor and things were going smoothly, or so I thought.....
Until I got that text message from Shelbe saying how STRESSFUL wedding planning was becoming so they were going to elope a couple months ahead of schedule instead with their closest family. They whipped up different plans in a matter of days and we set the new date for August 22, 2017 at Memphis Botanic Garden.
I. Was. PUMPED.
The chapel at the Memphis Botanic Garden had been a bucket list venue of mine since I started shooting weddings in 2014. New favorite venue + this stunning couple? YES PLEASE.
They had an intimate ceremony with their closest family and friends and it was an absolute joy to be able to witness such a union between two endearing souls. Tevin cried, their moms cried, I cried.... I think I saw Kelsey with Connor & Co. cry too.
It might have been incredibly hot being in August in the south but Tevin and Shelbe rocked that heat on their wedding day like it was going in the next issue of Vogue.
We worked with incredible people, as always, Kimberly Yasmine for make-up and Kelsey Connor with Connor & Co. for her planning, florals and design.
Here is a glimpse into our day with The Moore's for their intimate garden elopement and we can't wait for their Day After Session! <3 We love you guys!!
