Brooke and Hunter: A Shelby Farms Elopement

Shelby_Farms_Elopement_Utley0029

There are some weddings that really make us stop and remember why we are wedding photographers. Brooke and Hunter’s elopement was one of those weddings that touched our hearts deeply. Together with their immediate family, they had a simple ceremony in the woods of Shelby Farms. There was such a special intimacy in those woods as the family joined hands in prayer around the couple as they joined their lives together and started a new family. I had to fight back huge tears as I was reminded that even the simplest of weddings mean so much to the couple. With the pressures of having the perfect Pinterest wedding these days or topping your friend’s wedding, you can easily forget about the root of the wedding: the joining of two hearts. I’ve never seen a couple so happy to be newlywed! To top the day off the couple did a gender reveal for their family and found out that a little girl would be joining their new family! Brooke and Hunter thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of such a special time in your lives! You’ve shown us that no matter the location or budget, love prevails!

Brooke and Hunter: A Shelby Farms Elopement Preview

Shelby Farms Memphis Elopement

Blonde hair blowin’ in the summer wind
A blue-eyed girl playing in the sand
I’d been on her trail for a little while
But that was the night that she broke down and held my hand
The teenage rush, she said, “Ain’t we all just runaways, we got time”
Well that ain’t much…
We can’t wait ’til tomorrow
You gotta know that this is real, baby why you wanna fight it?
It’s the one thing you can choose, oh!

We got engaged on a Friday night
I swore on the head of our unborn child that I could take care of the three of us
But I got the tendency to slip when the nights get wild.
It’s in my blood
She says she might just runaway somewhere else, some place good
We can’t wait ’til tomorrow
You gotta know that this is real, baby why you wanna fight it?
It’s the one thing you can choose
