Catie and Hunter - Elegant Navy and Gold Country Club Wedding in Jackson, Tennessee

Ok so I maaaay have fallen a little behind on blogging, but I am on a mission to share my last few weddings of 2017, and this is a great one! Catie & Hunter got married on a beautiful October day at First Cumberland Presbyterian Church with a reception at the Country Club. Me and my second shooter for the day, Tracye Pulliam, arrived in the early afternoon while the girls were getting ready.

I had already seen Catie all glammed up at her bridal session, but she still took my breath away! She's such a beauty, and so down-to-earth.

While at the Country Club we also got some shots of the reception area all decked out, then it was time to head to the church.

The glass coasters were a cool favor! 

The girls rode over in the limo, and everyone started getting dressed.

Catie wanted to have a first look with her dad, so we did that next. She is so close with both of her parents, it was so sweet to see them all together!

Catie and Hunter also had gifts to exchange, so we did those separately in the sanctuary since they weren't seeing each other before the ceremony.

Hunter had Catie boo-hooing! His letter must have been super sweet, and one of his gifts was a canvas print of a photo of her late grandfather and her from when she was little. Such a thoughtful gift!

We got some bridal party and family photos done, then it was time to begin!

I went into super-bossy photographer mode after this. The sun had set, and we had like 1 minute of usable light after the ceremony. I just wanted at least a few good shots of them outside, so I hustled them out the door and got what I could before guests started coming outside. I was pleased with what I could capture in about 30 seconds! We did the rest of their portraits in the sanctuary. Thankfully Catie was much more concerned with getting great candids throughout the day, rather than a huge selection of bride and groom portraits. I can dig that! I love portraits, but capturing the moments throughout the day is what I have the most fun with.

Next was the super fun part! Eating, dancing and lots of joy!

The head table was absolutely gorgeous. 

Hunter taught us all how to dougie.

Catie got her dancing dress on!

It was such a fun night! I'm so thankful they chose me to document this day. They were all such a pleasure to work with from the moment we met. People like Catie, Hunter and Catie's mom, Susan, honestly make shooting weddings worth all the hard work. I love getting to meet such special people!
