For this wedding flashback, we wanna take you back. Way back! To October of 2015! Ladies and Gents, let's go back to Infinity Event's first full plan wedding! This was Jessica and Caleb's "Home" themed wedding! To explain this theme, we must first tell you a little about this couple. Caleb was active duty military when he proposed, and he and Jessica knew they would be moving away from Memphis shortly after the wedding. Jessica knew she wanted to have a wedding that paid tribute to her fiance's service as well as to her home city and country. Booking her wedding ON Beale Street was a great start to that tribute! Hunt Phelan is located at the end of Beale and has the perfect place to help you feel right at home!
Next up was to choose the details. She chose the true red a her focal color and accented that with touches of navy blue, white and gold! So classy! So patriotic! She also wore Blue Suede Shoes with her wedding dress and he had Memphis Grizzlies socks with his suit!
To nod towards her new name and the military life ahead, she also had her seamstress sew her fiance's military name tag inside of her dress! For their guest book, they had guests sign a wooden sign in the shape of the state of Tennessee with a heart over Memphis! And this is where our title comes in. It said "Home is wherever I'm with you." <3
Other Memphis touches included Growl Towels and U of M pom poms at their send off as well as the "party shirts" the Groom and some of his friends (who also serve our country) wore under their dress blues! Curious what a party shirt is? Take a look at the photo to the right! From the front, it was all business and crisp white, but when the groomsmen took off their jackets, the sleeves and back of the shirt were wild! Memphis Tigers, bald eagles, wolves, flags, even sequins covered these shirts! Talk about turning the party up!
Now about that ceremony! Let's start with a cautionary tale. Jessica and Caleb's wedding was in October, remember? Any guesses as to something that is pretty important on a wedding day that changes in the fall?? You may have guessed leaves or the temperature, and you aren't wrong. However, this new planner's first lesson was making sure to know when Daylight Savings Time really starts to affect sunset! By the time ceremony rolled around, that Sun was runnin' away! Jessica and Caleb knew they wanted the guests to be able to see them, and they, of course, wanted the photos to turn out great, so they asked their fabulous officiant, Kirk Houston, to speed up the ceremony a bit. It was amazing! They shared their first kiss as husband and wife before the Sun went down, and still were able to squeeze in those family pics!
We loved working with the vendors on this wedding! Each one had so much Heart in the day! They cared so much about making Jessica and Caleb's day a fantastic experience, and they all worked together to make sure that happened! We are beyond proud to have been a part of this wedding day that highlighted such an amazing couple and this amazing city!
Jessica and Caleb,
I know Jason and I have known Jessica for a long time, but It was such a pleasure getting to know you both during your planning process. I think it goes without saying, but I am so happy that our friendship has gone on LONG after your wedding day! Thank you for allowing me to share your sweet story (& amazing photos) over and over! It has been such a blessing knowing you!
