In three words, describe your wedding style?

Tasteful, Charming, Heartfelt

What provided the most inspiration for your wedding?

Easter and Springtime, especially in Memphis, always reminds me of my childhood running around my grandparent’s house. The scent of roses, the warmth of the sun on a chilly Spring day, and the sound of the pipe organ playing Easter hymns, made the decision to get married in April an easy choice. 

We wanted to make sure our wedding felt warm and welcoming to all guests. One of my favorite parts of planning was working with our florist, Deedra Stone, to pick out in-season flowers to be the center of all our wedding decor and paper items. My boss at the time designed beautiful floral watercolors that we then repurposed for our save-the-date, wedding invitation and envelope liner. Wade and I made sure to pick items that were meaningful to us during the planning process. We included a butterfly on the invitation suite to honor Wade’s grandmother and gardenias in my bouquet to honor my grandmother.

What aspect of wedding planning was most exciting to you? 

The liturgy and sacrament of marriage were the most important wedding aspects for us, especially since Wade and I met at the Episcopal campus ministry at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. We were privileged to have our priest from Christ Church Cathedral in Houston, TX, The Very Reverend Barkley Thompson, marry us in Memphis. Barkley was Wade’s priest growing up, so to have him preside over our wedding ceremony was very special. I always envisioned walking down the aisle to Trumpet Voluntary and was so blessed to have the opportunity to do so at St. Mary’s, where I was baptized and confirmed.

Our wedding was the first event for many family and friends since the COVID-19 pandemic began, so we wanted it to go off with a bang! We centered our wedding around everyone having fun and enjoying their time together. With Wade and I living in Texas, we had friends traveling to Tennessee for the first time and we wanted our wedding weekend to give them a taste of the Mid South. We filled our welcome box with goodies from our favorite candy shop in Memphis, Dinstuhl’s. We also included Beaver Nuggets for our Texas friends!

What made you decide on Hazen for your big day?

As luck would have it, I purchased a pair of Hazen earrings in 2012 from a boutique in Memphis not knowing much about the brand at all. Flash forward to 2017 when I met Taylor through our husbands, who became friends in law school. I’ve been supporting Hazen ever since and knew after seeing a few pieces at Taylor’s own wedding, I would want to wear Hazen for my special day. My bridesmaids and flower girls loved the pieces I picked out for them and still wear them daily, months later! It’s such a testament to the quality and versatility of Hazen pieces.
