A sweet and traditional ceremony began the day for Elizabeth and Jonathan’s Memphis Wedding | Vadala Ever After.
It seems like just yesterday I met Elizabeth and Jonathan at Starbucks to discuss their upcoming June 2016 wedding. We sat outside on a chilly December night and talked all about the details, how you feel when you know you’ve met the one, and laughed about anything and everything. I can’t believe that was almost 7 months ago! Elizabeth was referred to me by my hairdresser and previous bride Brittany. She and Elizabeth work at the same Salon- Estelle Salon and Spa. Sidetone: seriously, if you are a Memphis resident you need to be going to this salon. Everybody that I know is connected to someone at that salon (just be chance we find this out during conversation) because their stylists are insane. As in insanely talented. They will hook a sister up, for real!
So not only do I get to see Elizabeth’s sweet face every time I pop by for a brow wax or to get my hair done but I got to hang with her at Lydia and Nick’s April wedding this past spring! Elizabeth is truly one of the sweetest people I have ever met, and I am so happy that she found her prince charming. Both she and Jonathan were just beaming with happiness and excitement on their wedding day! His smile was so big when she started her walk down the aisle I swear it could have lit up the darkest night!
A Memphis Wedding | Vadala Ever After
Right before the ceremony I grabbed Elizabeth and led her to a spot in the hallway where there was a perfect corner that hid her from view and I linked her hand with her future husband’s. Her mom and sisters stood there as they held hands for the last time (without seeing each other) before they pledged their love in front of their family and friends. During a hectic wedding day it’s sweet moments like this that make me ugly cry at every wedding I work and make me so thankful for my own marriage and happily ever after.
I love love and I believe in fairy tales. I believe in happily ever after, and I believe that the walk down the aisle is one of the best ones you will take. In all honesty I can say that just from spending time with Elizabeth and watching her face light up when she talks about her man that she agrees with me. Not only does she believe in the happily ever after, but she is living the happily ever after.
The reception was small and intimate with little sandwiches, a cake cutting mishap (a piece may or may not have ended up on the table), and I may have given the groom and his flack for the Dallas Cowboys cake. Sorry Vadala Family, but I’m a Philly kid for life and we aren’t fond of those Cowgirls. The couple exited for their honeymoon with friends and family blowing bubbles and cheering them on! I know these two will meet the future head on with smiles, support from each other, and enough love and understanding to weather any storm.
Congrats you two, I am so so happy for you!!
