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!
