There is truly so much to say about Jimmy + Catherine! Maddie + I first met them when we did their hilarious Lookout Mountain engagement session (a groom has never made me laugh so much) and I totally wanted to be their friend. Jimmy + Catherine are adventurous, loving, laidback, and all-around just good people. It was such a blast to hang out with them on one of the most special days of their lives!
We started the day at the home of Catherine’s mom, Mary, and step-father, Pat. Their gorgeous house on Lookout Mountain was the perfect place for all of Catherine’s bridesmaids (there were twelve!) and many other friends, aunts, and cousins to drink mimosas, eat a quick lunch, and give lots of hugs. (Really, Catherine has set a personal record for pictures of people hugging! I totally get it… even I hugged people that day! You could feel the love!) After the girls got ready, we headed to The Church of the Good Shepherd for the ceremony. Catherine’s dad met us there and it was so special to see all of Catherine’s family surrounding her.
After the ceremony, we headed to the Jones Family Farm for an absolutely incredible reception! (I was really excited about the fireworks beforehand, but having someone crash the wedding via hang-gliding was a total first for me!) Catherine’s dad put a lot of work into the property for the wedding (progress we got to witness at the engagement session) and it was so neat to see it all come together! The Atlanta Showstoppers put on an amazing show (with some help from Jimmy on the drums and Catherine did her share of the vocal work… see below!) and kept everyone dancing until late into the night. Epting Events ran the reception and catered, and I must say it was some of the most fresh and delicious wedding food I’ve ever had!
Jimmy + Catherine, we are so ridiculously happy for you! I know you will make each other happy for the rest of your lives. We hope you enjoy your images – you can register here to see more when available.
Big shout-out to both Maddie + Elizabeth who photographed the day with me!
