Kristen and Adam’s Gorgeous Memphis wedding by St. Louis Wedding Photographer Cate Jackson

Kristen and Adam were Married at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens in Memphis, TN, which is a fantastic venue. Kristen is actually my second cousin and when her Mom Sandy contacted me to photograph the wedding in Memphis, I was delighted! The couple currently resides in Colorado and decided to have their wedding in Memphis to be closer to their families. They couldn’t have chosen a nicer venue, with the Dixon Gallery’s outdoor gardens it made for a gorgeous backdrop. The weather was perfect despite rain in the days leading up to the wedding and storm warnings for the wedding day. It didn’t rain a drop! Here are some photos from the day starting with their first look in the gardens.bride and groom first look by Cate Jackson Photography

The garden had sculptures throughout so we used them as a backdrop. Here’s one that is actually a favorite of the couple.bride and groom in front of stone sculpture by Cate Jackson Photographybride emracing groom from behind by Cate Jackson Photography
