Sweet & Savory

Don't you just love awesome couples who are truly in love and have a blast with each other? If your answer is yes, then let me introduce you to Kim and Derek - a super fun couple, both extreme foodies and 2 of my dear friends. 

They are both chef instructors at L'École Culinaire, a culinary institution here in Memphis. Kim specializes on the savory side of things while Derek focuses on the sweet (opposites attract, right?). They met at work a couple of years ago and have been cookin' it up ever since! 

Once Derek popped the question (with his Grandmother's incredible vintage engagement ring!) they got right to the planning and asked me to design their save the dates!

The ceremony is going to be held at Memphis Water Works, an impressive garden hardscapes space in the heart of the city with the ambience of a 100-year-old restored lumber shed (which makes it perfect for weddings!) And the reception is going to be at a Memphis Redbirds baseball game (on a fireworks night! I can't wait!) 

To reflect the awesomely fun and exciting elements of their wedding - I decided to focus on the fireworks for the design. I thought it would be a great way to introduce her colors (aubergine and bright blue) and set the tone for a relaxed yet energetic event!

Also, they had their engagement photos taken by (the amazing) Molly Kennedy of Good Golly Photography! This first round was taken in the kitchens of L'École (where they fell in love!) 

love the American Gothic spoof!

Molly sure does have a way of capturing the spirit of the couple! She's so incredibly talented and I absolutely love these pictures!
Happy Friday!
