There’s a first for everything, and such is the case with this faux wedding we were recently made aware of. Some of Memphis’s top wedding vendors and industry professionals (scroll to the bottom for a complete list) joined forces to create a beautiful, styled wedding shoot with one sole purpose: to raise awareness for the great need in Memphis for fostering and adopting kittens from local shelters.

Southern Sparkle Weddings and Elizabeth Hoard Photography incorporated five super-cute foster kittens from Memphis Animal Services into a stunning wedding shoot, complete with cake, couple, place settings and invitation suite, showing that weddings can bring two people — and maybe a few cuddly kittens — together forever.

We love how every last detail was accounted for.

Place settings, dessert table, florals … it’s all here!

“This will be my second year fostering kittens from Memphis Animal Services,” says photographer Elizabeth Hoard. “Fostering is a lot easier than one might think, and it saves so many lives that may otherwise be put down. I am a full-time wedding photographer, a full-time mother of three, and I still have time for fostering.”

Even if you only have a weekend available to foster, there’s still a need. For more information about kitten fostering, click HERE. And now for what you’ve been waiting for — prepare to fall in love!
