Olivia & Tommy

We love when the bride and groom decide to shake it up! Olivia and Tommy eloped in Europe and came back home to Memphis for their reception. They wanted the aesthetic to be very “Memphis”. 


They chose a historic location in downtown Memphis for their reception- Earnestine and Hazel’s. This location is an old jukejoint that has been around since the ’30’s-starting out as a pharmacy. As guests entered, cold beer and yummy wine were offered to get the festivities started while the DJ spun records. Their priest came to the reception to give the couple a special blessing in front of their family and close friends. After the blessing, the groom gave a very sweet toast to all their guests thanking them for coming.


The celebration continued with great food by Iris Etc. Catering who also provided a special cake for the bride and groom. The couple had custom bandannas with a map of Memphis made as favors for the party. The Hardin House planned a fun, relaxed, and laid back event for the bride and groom so they could celebrate their recent nuptials with their family and closest friends. Congrats Olivia and Tommy, and Happy One Year Anniversary!
