Today is a true treat because I am sharing Cassie and Rob’s Brooks Museum of Art Wedding in Memphis, Tennessee. When Rob first reached out to me to photograph their day he described the vision they had for their wedding of an intimate day spent with their very closest loved ones. Rob and Cassie had initially planned on having a larger wedding, but when covid hit, they decided to pair things down and quickly fell in love with the idea of a smaller, more personal touch to their wedding day (in Rob’s own words).
Their day started out by me meeting Cassie and her family at an airbnb where they were getting ready. Once Cassie’s mom helped her into her dress we headed to St. Michael’s Catholic Church (their home church) for their wedding ceremony. St. Michael’s is a beautiful older Catholic Church near downtown Memphis and it has beautiful wood detailing and stained glass windows. After Rob and Cassie’s ceremony we headed over to the Brooks Museum of Art for their couples portraits. The Brooks Museum is located in Overton Park and the Georgian marble and rich history of the place really lent a classic feel to their wedding photos. Rob and Cassie’s wedding was completed by a small dinner with their family at Paulette’s Restaurant where they were served filet mignon, crab cakes, and a delicious key lime pie. I love that Rob and Cassie stayed true to themselves and had an intimate wedding that was based on their favorite people and places in Memphis. At the end of the day weddings are about the couple, so as a wedding photographer when I see couples being unashamedly true to their vision for their wedding day nothing makes my heart soar more.
