Emily Marie Larson and Todd Nicholaus Miller were united in marriage on June 23, 2012. The ceremony was held at The River Terrace at Mud Island with Reverend Rene Somodevilla officiating. The bride is the daughter of Nancy and Alan Larson of Memphis, Tennessee. The groom is the son of Mr. Wayne Miller of Hernando, Mississippi and Mrs. Terri Rossi of Dallas, Texas.
The couple met through friends when Todd needed a date for a nonprofit event and hit it off immediately. Todd proposed to Emily on the roof of the Madison Hotel in Downtown Memphis on November 6, 2010. The ceremony was set against the backdrop of the Mississippi River and the iconic Memphis skyline during the sweltering summer months. The theme was “Riverside chic.”
Emily wore form-fitting dress from Ballew Bridal by designer Maggie Sottero with an embellished halter and corset back. She borrowed a pin from her brother, who was unable to attend the ceremony due to his deployment with the armed services. Her wedding dress was new, and she wore her great grandmother’s handkerchief as an accessory. For something blue, she chose a garter bearing the colors of her alma mater, The University of Memphis. The walk down the aisle was accompanied by the melodious acoustic stylings of Charley McLemore.
Following the reception, guests were treated to strawberry sweet cream cake courtesy of The Cake Lady and a selection of hors d’oeuvres from Catering For U. After a honeymoon trip to Bermuda, the couple returned to Midtown Memphis, where they currently reside.
