I know you guys remember the adorable Caitlyn and James.
(SIDE NOTE: I can’t believe it’s February, and I am just now blogging an October wedding. What can I say? Ya girl’s been busy.)
This wedding is so very special to us for so many different reasons. 1. I’ve known Caitlyn and her entire family since I was about a little girl. Caitlyn’s dad works with my dad, and he and his wife Toni are also the powerhouse couple behind VMWeddings Studio, our favorite videographers. Toni and Jimmy (who John and I often accidentally call ‘Timmy’) are like parents to us. They are so helpful, so kind, so generous, and honest to goodness BALLERS at what they do. (I have to brag on them, because they won’t.) We also had the pleasure of shooting Ashley’s (Caitlyn’s sister) wedding at Heartwood Hall this past March. I remember once I spent the night at Ashley and Caitlyn’s house. I was maybe 10 years old, so Caitlyn would have been 7 or so. She asked where my sister “Jennifart” was (Jennifer.) I laughed so hard I cried, and she’s pretty much been my hero ever since. I’ll never forget that. When my dad came and picked me up from their house, I told him what Caitlyn called my sister, he laughed and then pretended it wasn’t funny. Secretly he thought it was genius.
Another reason this wedding was so extremely close to our hearts is because Caitlyn and James said “I do” in the exact location we did, and the same month we did, three years later. I may be bias, but the Memphis Botanical Garden is such an enchanting gem. I cannot get enough. It was wonderful getting to view a ceremony where we tied the knot, on the other side of the camera.
Caitlyn and James are perfect for each other. They love big which is evident for the world to see. James never took his eyes from Caitlyn the entire day. Caitlyn’s mom Toni said; “It has been that way since kindergarten.”
Caitlyn and James, thanks so much for allowing us to capture these sweet memories. You guys are so special to us, enjoy!
