This wedding makes our hearts sing! It’s full of color, personality, and delectable food! What more could you want? The jewel tone restaurant wedding (yes, you read that right) takes place at a stunning and unique restaurant in Memphis, Tennessee. Burgundy, teal, and lavender pop against the naturally green venue. In addition to statement making florals, the bride’s Watters gown is in a league of it’s own! Her and her groom have the sweetest first look, ceremony, and reception all caught on camera by Kelly Ginn Photography.
Photographer Kelly shares, Katie and Alec are some of the most creative, intelligent, hilarious people we’ve ever met. Katie booked us over 1.5 years ago, and we’re so glad she did because this is one of our very favorite weddings.
After I delivered Katie and Alec’s wedding images to them, I reached out to her and asked her what she would title her wedding if she could. She laughed and told me she wasn’t good with titles, and all she could come up with was “a cozy, sensory-overloading, foodie’s dream wedding.” Katie and Alec are both “foodies” aka, share a love for delicious, fine foods. It only made sense that they get married at one of Tennessee’s finest restaurants.
Acre is a rustic-yet-sophisticated eatery featuring modern American cuisine, unique and creative drinks & family style meals. Every single course of their meal was well thought out. From the watermelon mint salad, to the cajun crawfish bread, to the delectable blueberry and marigold ice cream, it’s safe to say all of Katie and Alec’s wedding guests were in for a treat. Acre is one of the most charming restaurants and venues we’ve ever shot at. It’s tucked in a little nook in East-Memphis. The shrubbery around it makes it feel like a fairy cottage, with a bright statement yellow door. Its atmosphere makes you feel like you’re eating at home with good friends and family, which is exactly what Katie and Alec wanted.
Her Watters’ gown was the perfect touch of glam to such a rustic location, and don’t even get me started with the jewel toned accents and organic florals. I’m sure Katie and Alec can do much more justice at describing their perfect day, but honestly, the images speak for themselves!
