2016 Wedding Reel!

2015 was an AMAZING year at Message in a Bottle. We grew in style, confidence and end product.  Our 2016 Wedding Reel is a culmination of many of our favorite moments from our 2015 weddings.  We are so proud of the growth we have accomplished and the stories of love we have captured in time for our clients.  Take a look at our new reel and feel the power of the video medium in capturing the essence of love.

Thank you to all of our amazing couples in 2015 (and before) who trusted us to tell your stories and capture the memories of your wedding day.  Without you, none of this would be possible.

Without further ado, our 2016 Wedding Reel:

A Fantastic Wedding!

Awesome …. Incredible ….  Phenomenal …. these words just don’t seem big enough to describe a wedding we went to recently.  Carra and Robert got married at Union Ave. Baptist Church and then had a fantastic reception at Minglewood Hall.

With at least 10 bridesmaids (maybe more!) and an equal number of Groomsmen this wedding was NOT lacking one bit in support of family and friends.  At the rehearsal dinner almost every single one of them explained in great detail about how special this couple was and how positively they had affected their lives.  When Dad got up to talk about his daughter you could feel the power of love in the room, which quickly broke into laughter as he presented Robert with a new wardrobe of Memphis T-Shirts in a tongue in cheek attempt to get the couple to move a little closer to home.
The wedding day although lavish in design was simple with the girls doing each other’s makeup and hair, and the boys watching the PGA Championship and Nascar.  The designs were beautiful, the colors elegant, and the brides dress was stunning.  However, no one doubted for a second that this couple needed anything other than their love for each other.
The ceremony went off without a hitch, with both mothers’ eyes streaming tears of joy.  The room was electric as the bride walked down the aisle with her father in a moment they had both dreamed of for a lifetime.  The sweetest moment of the ceremony came when the Minister pronounced the new couple husband and wife, and let Robert know that he could now kiss the bride.  After a beautiful kiss Robert leaned in and kissed Carra on the forehead.  The gesture showed his love and caring spirit and the whole sanctuary was assured that this marriage would last forever.
The reception had an awesome band from lower Alabama.  The band brought the funk and fun to the party for sure.  The Bride and Groom were introduced from behind the stage and proceeded into the most epic first dance I have every witnessed!  These two loved having fun with each other and they were some comfortable with themselves that no one else in the room seemed to matter.  The Bride and her father were quickly joined by the rest of her family on the dance floor, and the groom and his mother cut quite a rug!
The reception had food and fun from all different icons of Memphis and the guests from near and far enjoyed quite the party!  When it was all over the bride and groom waited to leave until they could thank their parents and share a special goodbye before exiting through their family and friends who were armed handful after handful of confetti!  As their Taxi Limo left the parking lot everyone had a warm feeling in their heart of the magic of love that they had witnessed that day!  Thank you to the Bride and Groom for letting us be a small part of their wedding day, and for offering us the opportunity to capture such loving moments on video!

Belly Dancer!

So Amara has been the belly dancer at 2 of our recent weddings.  One of the cool things about our job is that we get to capture the memories of a couple on their special day.  Sometimes they have very cool things planned like Grizz shows up, or a drumline, or a solider returns to see his sister getting married.  We have captured all of these events and more.  Twice in the last 20 weddings Amara has performed her belly dancing skills during the reception.  One, this girl is awesome!  She comes in with a great attitude and really spices up the party, but second she has skills!  Check out 2 of her performances we recorded at the Tower Room.

How cool is that right?!

Sexton Wedding Wrap Up

Fun!  We could end this blog post here.  That is the only word that needs to be said about this wedding!  Sure we could use Beautiful, a Celebration of Love, Amazing, Heart-felt ….  but really, it was FUN!

The bride and groom had such a great sense of humor and the bridal party felt so comfortable that everyone had a good time.

The wedding was at the Woodland Hills Convention Center and we have never seen that place look better.

The groom hailed to Memphis to follow his bride from New Jersey.  If everyone is as cool in Jersey maybe we should move there!  Wait ….  it’s cold there, so were staying right here!  In fact these it snowed on their wedding day here in Memphis!  It’s a sign! ;)

The jewish ceremony was beautiful!  The Rabbi was a master of his craft and delivered a touching service that really celebrated the love these two shared and recognized the commitment they were making.

Dancing, Food, and Fellowship followed!

Thank you to everyone involved!  We had a great time getting to be a part of your special day!

 Check out their Wedding Wrap Up Video and make sure you watch all the way until the end!

Kevin Barré Photography – Memphis Wedding Photographer

“Elegance”

That is the word we use when describing Kevin Barré Photography.  If you are looking for stunning images of your special day that have a modern style and a dynamic feel then look no further than Kevin Barré Photography!  Kevin  has been Photographing Memphis Weddings for over 20 years and knows how to make your day stress free while capturing images that you will cherish for a lifetime!
When my brides ask me what they should look for in a wedding photographer I tell them to look for 3 things:
1. Style
2. Value
3. Attitude

1. Style: Look at these images! Kevin Barré has an elegant style unmatched in the Memphis Wedding market!  The smooth textures, expert lighting, and brilliant composition make his photos stand out above the pack.







 2. Value: How do you put a value on priceless memories?  How can you look at these images and not want an artist like this to spend your wedding day with you? Kevin’s packages offer AMAZING value with bonuses like photobooks, images delivered on USB, canvas prints, and more!  These items are great, but the real value is having someone with as much experience as Kevin in charge of the memories of your big day!
3. Attitude:  You want a photographer at your wedding that is going to make you feel comfortable steeping out of your normal routine.  There is so much to do on your wedding day! You need a photographer that is driven to get you the results you desire, but laid back enough to go with the flow.  Kevin Barré is exactly that!  I have watched Kevin get amazing pictures in less than ideal situations without ever breaking a sweat. You need a photographer that has the attitude that they want to make your day better.  I have worked along Kevin at so many weddings where he has displayed this exact attitude that is so crucial to being a great wedding photographer.

Having worked with Kevin Barré Photography so many times we are so comfortable recommending him as one of the BEST wedding photographers in Memphis.  We have seen his images from so many weddings and every time we see them we are blown away at their clarity, quality, and style.  
Kevin Barré Photography also shoots engagement photos, special events, and more.

Downing Wedding Wrap Up

One of the best places in Memphis to have a wedding is at the Peabody!  One of the best couples to film at the Peabody is the Downings.  Add in the bonus of it being their wedding day and our job just got so easy!

Sarah and Lee had an awesome wedding at the Peabody! We were there to capture all of the special moments along with Snap Happy Photography.  This couple knew how to have fun!  I knew their wedding was going to be a blast when they performed the entire Rehearsal with drinks in hand!

The rehearsal dinner was a blast at Central BBQ!  Everyone loved the BBQ Nachos!

The morning of the wedding Sarah looked beautiful! She was glowing with joy as she prepared to walk down the aisle.

The reception was exactly the kind of elegant celebration you would expect, but with the added flair of the Bride and Grooms fun personality.

The night ended being remembered by all as  Cerebration of Love between 2 special people.  It was our pleasure to get to capture the memories of such a special day for 2 such amazing people!
