the Bride and Groom: Katie & Jimmy

What was the most memorable moment of your day?

Katie – One of the most memorable moments from our day is when our pastor had us turn and face the people who attended our wedding.

Jimmy – I was feeling confident the whole day and didn’t feel nervous at all until Katie made her grand entrance. Even though we did a first look, seeing her walk through the doors made me weak in the knees and made it very real and exciting. I thought I was pretty clever in my vows but hearing everyone laugh as hard as they did really made me smile!

Any advice for future bride/grooms?

Katie – My advice would be to enjoy the engagement. I feel I rushed into planning and stressed my self out for the first couple months of our engagement and if I could go back I would have basked in the excitement of it more. I also feel premarital counseling is so important for couples to do.

Jimmy – My advice to a groom is to have someone drive you around the day of your wedding. Whether its last minute errands or driving to the venue, your mind will be swimming!

Funniest moment from your wedding day?

Katie – One of my very close friends came up to me and told me he was having trouble tying his bow tie…it was a clip on bow tie! It just goes to show everybody loses their mind on the day of a wedding!

Jimmy – Watching everybody dance at the reception.

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

The only thing I would change is I (Katie) had my extended family meet in the barn and I should’ve had them go to the chapel that way I would have been able to see and enjoy the flower arrangements in the reception area.

Where did you go/are you going on your honeymoon?

We are planning to go to Costa Rica in May!

White Chapel Wedding venue  Dallas Texas

I shoot at Rustic Grace pretty frequently, but this was my first wedding where the Bride & Groom used the chapel for the ceremony! It’s incredible – Katrina and Kevin really did a great job matching the style of the chapel to the look of the 1920s barn. (Also, look at the tiny barn on the directions card from their invitation! Dying!)

Katie & Jimmy planned plenty of time for photos, so we got the set right after the first look in the afternoon, and because all we had to do after the ceremony was their family formals, we got to take advantage of Golden Hour for about 15 minutes and shoot some “extras.” I’m so glad we did!
