Tiffany and Jimmy – First United Methodist Church, Jackson

on April 30, 2012 in April Weddings

This weekend, I had the honor of photographing Tiffany and Jimmy’s wedding at First United Methodist Church in Jackson. Saturday was rainy and COLD. It reminded me so much of the day I got married, eight years ago when, on May 1st, it was in the 30s and pouring rain. Fortunately, the only plans for outdoor activities for Tiffany and Jimmy’s wedding were for taking photos of the bridal party at the train station, which would allow us to stay out of the elements for the most part.

The ceremony was beautiful, with the message of two being better than one and I especially liked the music they incorporated, particularly the song “Can’t Help Falling in Love” which was sung by a friend of the couple with the most angelic voice.  Once the vows and rings were exchanged and Jimmy and Tiffany were pronounced husband and wife, we photographed the family groups and then headed to the train station to photograph the bridal party. The rain had stopped by then but the wind was pretty vicious.  I worked as quickly as possible so everyone could head back to the warmth of the limo. There were some goosebumps and some chattering of teeth but not a single complaint! It wasn’t long and we were headed to the reception at Hugo’s.

Maid of Honor, Samantha and Best Man, Cody gave heartwarming toasts and a wonderful dinner of chicken and lasagna was served. After dinner, Tiffany and Jimmy cut the beautiful cake, made by family friend Karina Rowley. The couple shared their first dance as husband and wife, danced with their parents and then Pro DJ’s got the party started and the dance floor was filled with happy guests.

Thanks, Tiffany and Jimmy, for choosing me to photograph the beautiful day you planned. Enjoy your sneak peek below!
