christina + cory: joined. a memphis savannah woods wedding.

Bubbles. Fishface. Mama and Papa Bear. Sarah. Ludo. Lovey. They don’t have one nickname. They have many. And each one means something different, and something special to them. They are true terms of endearment. Those who know them well enough to be included in the hidden meanings know how lucky they are. Because for Christina and Cory, there are not enough ways to say I love you.

Christina and Cory were married on a beautiful autumn day, and their wedding was full of as many special details and hidden meanings as is their relationship. They stood in front of each other, and in front of friends and family, read vows that they had written from their hearts. And in that moment, they were the only two people in the world. Between tears and laughter, they knew they had finally found the right words. The right words for their love. And they expressed it every way they knew how.

The day began at Savannah Woods with a gorgeous gown and a bright pair of purple heels. There’s nothing I love more than colorful shoes with a white wedding dress!

Ed was hanging out with the guys while I tended to the girls. He snapped this photo right before Cory and Christina exchanged gifts and letters.

Christina and Cory chose to see each other before the ceremony, and their First Look was filled with tenderness and laughter. Christina surprised Cory with a special key to my heart boutonniere.

Christina put a lot of thought into her wedding details, and most of them she made herself.

    There are no words to sufficiently convey how wonderful our wedding day turned out.
    God surrounded us with such wonderful people, who made the day better than this bride could have ever dreamed.
    Amy & Ed are sincere blessings to us, and their work reflects just how amazing they are both behind the camera and in front.
    I am so very thankful to you both for capturing our day, and presenting it so beautifully through your thoughtful words and amazing images.
    And boy that Fishface sure is one handsome fella. Woowee, and I’m one lucky gal!

    These pictures are beyond enchanting! The wedding was highly delicious! Your perspective is enlightening! The teamwork between you two was simply contagious. I just LOVE how you caught me staring at the train when the couple was announced LOL!!! like a HAWK! Enjoyed your storyline and the mentioning of how much personality we jammed into it beginning to end♥ I will DEF be recommending you to friends and family for future events.
