This military wedding in Memphis is sure to steal your heart! Shelby and Henry’s wedding, although unintended, was a perfect mix of Patriotic pride and sweet love! The ideal for a warm-weather wedding in the South! Just like their wedding song, this couple is just happy to see one another, happy to be together, and now happy to be married. That’s what it’s all about after all! Shelby gave us the full story below alongside beautiful photos by Lyndsi Metz Photography!
What is your favorite quality in your husband/wife?
“My favorite quality in my husband is that he always has some adventure planned for us, whether it’s a big trip to NYC, or getting away for a weekend. And, he always makes me smile.”
When did you know you were falling in love?
“We fell in love while we worked together in Hernando, MS.”
Did you have a specific theme or design inspiration for your big day?
“We didn’t have a specific theme. We just wanted a formal wedding, but it ended up looking patriotic with the groom and 2 groomsmen in dress blues.”
What was the most memorable moment?
“The most memorable moment for me was probably walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing my husband standing at the end waiting for me, grinning ear to ear.”
What was your first dance song, and why did you choose it?
“‘Happy’ by Bruce Springsteen because we love his music.”
Tell us about your grand exit!
“Everyone lined up outside with sparklers and we walked through them to a car that took us to the Peabody Hotel for the night, where we stayed in the Romeo and Juliet suite.”
Congratulations Shelby and Henry from all of us at The Pink Bride!
