Memphis Dinosaur Wedding // Paige + Aldo
I don't think I've ever met a couple quite like Paige and Aldo. Don't get me wrong. All of the clients I work with are super sweet and throw fantastic weddings - no matter how big or small the affair. But this wedding. You guys. It was unique and oh-so-fun!
Paige and Aldo are the epitome of laid back. They love all-things-dodgeball, dinosaurs and the color blue. I feel the need to tell you this so you get an idea of their personalities, but also because they really weaved these details in when it came to planning their wedding. The result? A super fun party that truly reflected THEM.
Let's talk about location. This wedding was in Memphis, Tennessee at the Lichterman Nature Center. I was so excited to hop on that plane for a destination wedding. You know I love my SoCal weddings, but how fun it was to get out of town and see some new sites!
Paige is originally from Memphis and wanted to be there to support her family as her mother Karen battled cancer. I was devastated to hear that Karen passed away just a few weeks after Paige and Aldo got married, but felt relieved that she was able to experience her sweet girl's wedding. I will forever feel truly honored to have captured some photos of this beautiful woman and her daughter on such an important day.
This wedding was a family affair, with Paiges' sister, Drew, even making the dinosaur themed bouquets and boutonnieres. And, Paige (that crafty chick!) hand-dyed her own wedding gown (blue of, course).
I can't convey how much fun this wedding was, but I hope the pictures help to translate it for you. I mean- if you don't think a dino photobomb during the first look is fun - you need to loosen up!
Paige and Aldo's Memphis wedding is definitely a day I'll remember forever.
