Hey hey, y’all!!
It’s WEDDING Wednesday here at my house! So, what better way to celebrate than show y’all my latest wedding??!! 🙂
Y’all remember Jessie and Matt, right? We had such a great shoot for their engagement session at the Collierville Town Square. And their wedding did not disappoint!
I LOVED working with this couple. I met with Jessie about a year and a half ago, and man, how time flies!! I’m sad it’s over, but it was such an amazing day. It was worth the wait. To miss this wedding would mean possibly missing the happiest bride and groom I’ve ever met. Jessie was literally jumping up and down with excitement to be walking down the aisle later that day. Her happiness was contagious! Everyone around her was smiling, dancing, laughing, happy-crying. I was thinking to myself during the ceremony…”this is what the wedding day is about.”
The weather was unbelievably perfect. The flowers were great! Not to mention Matt and Jessie’s surprise first dance!! Did I mention Jessie is a dance teacher?? Needless to say, their routine was AMAZING!
Ok, anyways, let me get down to the deets, y’all!
So their gorgeous wedding was at the Collierville Town Square Gazebo! And their wedding reception was at the Quonset. I loved the metal outside of the building!
Matt and Jessie did opt for a traditional look. As many of y’all know, if you do go for a traditional look, I HIGHLY recommend adding on a second shooter. Which they did. Also, as an alternative to sparklers, we did a sporty send-off. I’m not sure what to name it, but it was like leaving a pep rally, which was really fun!
And now, I present…Matt and Jessie’s wedding day!
Often times with a traditional look, I will have a pocket of time with the bride for bridal portraits…especially if guests are in a separate area. By pocket of time, I mean about 5-10 minutes. And here, Jessie was getting ready at the Quonset, but guests were arriving at the Gazebo, which was just down the street. So this means uninterrupted time with the bride. The light at this time…in this place…I just couldn’t even, y’all!
I love this little shot. We finished our portraits and they danced their way to the ceremony site….I was just singin’ to myself, “Goin’ to the chapel, and we’re gonna get ma-aaaaa-rrrrried!”
Matt’s first look. 🙂
Possibly my favorite photo of the entire day. Everyone’s praying, and these two just couldn’t even help but look up at each other.
On to the reception!
Jessie is FLYING through the air!! I can’t wait to see the video of their dance!
Congrats again, you two!! I wish you MANY years of love and laughter. You’re off to a good start! 🙂
I want to send out a special thanks to my second shooter, Katie!! Thanks for coming out and helping!!! Also, thanks to Amy for helping my grab those detail shots and first dance! 🙂 Couldn’t do it without y’all!
