Sweet Cortney & Jamie are married! We first met Cortney & Jamie over dinner to chat about their wedding plans and knew right away we would be a great fit. Cortney & Jamie are the kind of people you feel yourself with; they are welcoming, kind, down-to-earth people. Our kind of people! We got to know them more at their engagement shoot and just knew their wedding day would be fun and beautiful in every way.
You’ve heard us say before how vital friendship is within a marriage. When I think of a couple who is not only crazy about each other but have a deep friendship too, Cortney & Jamie come to mind. We asked these cuties how they knew they had found “the one”…they said they enjoy doing everything together and are the most comfortable around each other. They love joking around and always have fun together. And of course, they “just knew”. 😉 A statement so simple, profound and true.
Cortney & Jamie’s wedding was our first wedding in downtown Paris, Kentucky. This town is adorable and full of character! Such a perfect scene to capture wedding day memories for these lovebirds. Jamie is a firefighter in Paris and some of our favorite shots of this day were at his station with his guys (and the station pup who followed us everywhere!). We loved exploring this small town with Cortney, Jamie and their bridal party. A shot we always try to get in a downtown scene is one stopping traffic! Brides usually get away with this. 😉 Their bridal party was all for it! We had such a blast hanging out with Cortney & Jamie’s favorite people that day. When a bridal party loves and supports a bride and groom the way this crowd did, it’s a good day. They were determined to have some fun too, which we love!
You’ve heard us say before that it takes a village to pull off a wedding day and it’s always true. We LOVE how Cortney & Jamie’s loved ones stepped in to make their day as magical as it was. There were so many moments we witnessed of family, bridal party and guests, lending a hand to create this beautiful day. Like many of our weddings, this wedding too felt like one big family reunion. Our favorite kind of day.
The moment Cortney & Jamie really looked forward to on their big day was sharing their vows. This bride and groom wrote their own vows, which we love. Their words couldn’t have been more sweet and true. If I could choose a word to perfectly describe the ceremony and reception, it would be thoughtful. Throughout the evening, there were moments that captured our hearts and brought us to tears. The way Cortney & Jamie value family is something I know will be passed on through generations to come.
“Here’s to” a lifetime of love, friendship and adventure for our sweet friends, Cortney & Jamie. Congrats to the newlyweds!! #lovetherenauds #GoingGrimes #ltrbride #ltrwedding
A huge thanks to the vendors who made this wedding day beautiful…
