Like all good Memphis love stories Lindsey and Joel's begins with an obstacle, grows through years, and gets a big celebration by the Mississippi River with a beautiful group of friends and family. They liked each in the early 90s, but someone (let's call him Joel) was too afraid to do anything about it for 23 years. Finally, he did, and this gorgeous young lady (who has the patience of a saint) didn't scoff at him for taking so long, and even agreed to date him! They both thought the other was pretty cool, and 25 years after meeting, they are getting married!
Their lives have been touched and enriched by many great people and places. Lindsey and Joel are excited to share their big day with all of you, and it all happens in the places that have their hearts forever -- Memphis and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. They are excited for you to help celebrate this journey 25 years in the making, and this love that will last forever.

While dining at The Majestic Grille you might expect to see Myrna Loy & William Powell sitting at the bar, zinging witty one-liners at each other over ice-cold martinis.
Originally built in 1913 as the Majestic No. 1, a silent picture house that entertained Memphians for three decades, the restaurant gives diners a glimpse of the heady Hollywood days of ol’. From the beautifully restored Beaux Arts décor to expertly prepared classic cocktails to warm, gracious service to Chef/Owner Patrick Reilly’s award winning, yet remarkably comfortable food, you find yourself feeling transported to another time. Add to that the largest private movie screen in the city showing silent films & classic movies and you’re center stage in an atmosphere that reclaims the cinematic glory of the dawn of the silver screen.
