We love this Memphis wedding for so many reasons. Like the stunning vintage venue, the charming rustic details, the music-inspired decor, but most importantly how sweet this couple and their love story is! Elishia who we’ve worked with numerous times has always been a friendly face to the engaged couples who come to our shows and such a huge help to her clients. Sooo it is super exciting to be able to celebrate HER wedding below! Start scrolling to see it all & get some behind-the-scenes details from Elishia herself.
