Meet madison and Hunter Byer!! The sweetest couple ever! madison and Hunter both attended Collierville High School. They never really paid attention to each other in high school! Their paths did not cross until Hunter was a freshman at the University of Alabama and madison still a senior in high school. A mutual friend of theirs, Sarah Fowler, introduced the now love birds at a Collierville High School football game. (thank you, Sarah!!) Ever since that game, the two were inseparable. Hunter would take every chance he could get to come home and see his girl. madison now admits that she low key had a crush on Hunter all throughout high school (LOL!)
madison and Hunter continued to date for three and a half years. During this time, they both graduated from the University of Alabama in May of 2018. madison actually attended Ole Miss for her freshman year, but she could not stand being away from her “other half.” So, she then transferred to the University of Alabama in order to be with Hunter!! They frequently refer to each other as their “other half” (isn’t that the cutest ever??)
Now for the super sweet part - the proposal!! First, Hunter took madison out to a super nice dinner. Afterwards, he blindfolded her and told her to wait there. He then took her hand and led her to a certain spot. She had to count to sixty before she could take the blindfold off. When she looked up, rose petals covered the grass along with a picture of them hanging between two trees!! Hunter put so much work into it along with many other people who have impacted this sweet couple!
madison + Hunter tied the knot on July 21, 2018! It was an absolutely gorgeous wedding at The Jefferson in Oxford, ms! madison wore a stunning Hayley Paige wedding dress along with her makeup being done by La Rousse Salon and Spa in Oxford. The couple’s special day was filmed by Joe and Callie Cain. The wedding cake was from Frost while the floral vendor was Natural Creations "A Rare Find.” DJ Kevin Russell had so many people out on the dance floor having so much fun during the reception! Their special day was one to remember, for sure!!
madison now works for Magnolia Homes as a new home sales agent. Hunter works for CBRE as a leasing analyst! The Byers are currently loving life together!

Meet the Duncans!! Lydia and Jordan met during high school - they both attended Briarcrest High School. This couple has been holding on to each other for seven years before tying the knot! They are the perfect example of high school sweethearts!!! Jordan attended the University of Tennessee Knoxville While Lydia attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Not only were they high school sweethearts, but they also made long distance work! (GOALS)
While they were still dating, Lydia had convinced Jordan to take fake engagement pictures for April Fools’ Day. To Lydia’s surprise, Jordan got down on one knee and proposed during the photo shoot!!
Their special day was in Eads, Tennessee at Lydia’s Uncle’s house! This made for an intimate setting with beautiful scenery. You could not ask for better lighting than on that day! To symbolize the Duncans’ feelings for one another, fireworks shot off during the reception!! (Scroll down to see!)
Lydia currently works at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital. Jordan is a marketing specialist at Castle & cooke Mortgage. They are both super busy with work, but they are loving every minute together!

We are so excited to show you guys the full film of Sarah and John’s special day! A fun filled day spent in Downtown Memphis and a dreamy night spent at the Halloran Center.
Let me just start out by saying, there is not anyone more perfect for each other than Sarah and John. If you have already checked out their highlight film, you would agree when I say that Sarah is absolutely stunning and like a real life princess in her gorgeous dress by Allure Romance. Her beauty lights up any room and definitely lights up John’s face. John is so sweet and was always so giddy around Sarah. He had the BIGGEST smile on his face all day long. When the two are looking at each other, it is so evident in their eyes and smiles that they truly are in love with one another.
Sarah and John chose to do a first look before the ceremony and it was nothing short of perfect. It took place on a bridge and the scenery was beautiful. The moments before the couple turned around to see each other were so sweet. The two were so giddy and excited. When John turned around to see his soon-to-be Bride, all he could do was smile. She looked absolutely stunning and trust us, we couldn't stop smiling too!) A ton of happy tears were shed.
I think our favorite part of the entire day was the reception. With John being from Cincinnati and Sarah being from Memphis, they decided to pay some tribute to some traditional food items from both of the cities: Cincinnati's famous Greater’s Ice Cream along with John’s Mom’s famous hot fudge sauce, Aldo’s Pizza and Donuts from Gibson’s! To go along with the donuts, Sarah and John, with the help of some kind friends, built a donut wall and a dessert station, which brings us to the sweet part.
Sarah and John decided to go with a little less traditional reception when it came to the desserts, but in the best way possible. In Sarah’s words, “Both of our homes have always had an open door policy and being raised by Jewish mothers meant one way they show that they love you is through food, and a lot of it.” With so many talented chefs in their lives, they had an idea. Instead of having the traditional catering of deserts, the couple asked around 20 family members and friends to make 3 dozen of their famous desert items to have at the reception. It was such a unique way to incorporate the ones they love in their special day!
We loved the setup of all the desserts as they sat under lit up letters that said “LOVE” along with the gorgeous cake made by Lydia Farmer of Cakes that hung from the ceiling. It was an absolutely gorgeous setup.
Aside from the food and all the delicious treats, the rest of the reception was a hit. It was nothing short of a party thanks to DJ Jeff Cowens from Deep Blu Entertainment. EVERYONE was dancing and having a great time in honor of the new Mr. + Mrs. Bloch! We enjoyed seeing everyone laughing and just enjoying the moment.
We loved getting to film this day because it was full of laughs, lots of laughs, and a whole lotta love. Sarah and John, we absolutely loved being able to capture moments of your special dayWe wish you guys a lifetime of happiness with each other!

We are so excited to share this engagement session with you all. They are such a close couple to us personally and we couldn't be happier for their engagement. Joshua had the whole engagement planned out at the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas, and Alicia actually thought they were just having a couples session, but little did she know it would be one of the sweetest moments of her life.
Even though this sweet couple has only been dating for about 6-7 months, everyone can see that they are meant to be. Josh and Alicia, we hope that you have a marriage blessed with abundance of love, laughter, and honesty; that is focused on having a Christ filled marriage.
We hope that you enjoy these precious moments of the start of such an important chapter of your lives, and we are so happy we were able to be apart of it all. Enjoy!
