Amie and Ronald - Wedding at The Barn Event Center - Jaclyn Paige Photography

Amie and Ronald's wedding at The Barn Event Center in Townsend was one of the most fun and relaxed weddings we've ever covered.  While part of that was due to their doing a First Look before the ceremony, the main reason it was such a great day is that they are such a cool couple, and they suit each other perfectly!  A lot of their planning included personal handmade touches (the two of them made the ring bearer's box), and many of the elements of the day were taken care of by people close to them: friends did the flowers (The Crazy Daisy), cake (Maria Daidone), and music (Brandon Blanchard); and Ron's grandfather officiated the ceremony (for which they wrote their own vows.)  Amie and Ronald arranged The Barn's seating in the shape of a Celtic cross, so they were literally surrounded by family and friends during the ceremony.  Beyond that, the catering and event staff at The Barn Even Center are super friendly and efficient, and it's easy to see that they enjoy their jobs.  Their food was awesome, too!  Heather from Simplicity Event Planners  coordinated the details of the day, and she is seriously one of the most effective planners we've ever had the pleasure of working with: on top of every detail but also a kind and relaxing presence on a busy day.  The party really got going when the gigantic glow sticks appeared and guests filled the dance floor-- so cool! Ronald and Amie are so in love (even though Ronald refused to let those tears fall, they filled his eyes a couple times!) and we wish them all the best as they start married life together!  Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Cohorst!  --Jaclyn

Kristi and David - Crescent Bend Wedding - Jaclyn Paige Photography

Kristi and David are some of the kindest people we have ever worked with.  They are so good together and make such a great couple!  It really was a privilege to work with them and capture their day at charming and historic Crescent Bend.  Suzanne Clayton got the girls' faces even more beautiful than they already were, and Tracy Davis from Salon Barnes and Barnes created their amazing hairstyles. Always in Bloom provided the gorgeous white bouquets and floral arrangements and All Occasion Catering served up delicious and colorful fare as well as the huge wedding cake.  Besides being beautiful people who are friendly and sweet together, David and Kristi also real troopers: their wedding day turned out to be one of the hottest, muggiest days this summer, but they still did their First Look outdoors and spent time in the heat to get some great shots. Then, when it rained on them after the ceremony, they remained in high spirits and danced the night away to the tunes provided by Drew Holloway of Ogle Entertainment.  As the evening continued, guests enjoyed a snack from Krystal and then gathered to send the new Mr. and Mrs. off through a tunnel of sparklers, and Kristi and David rode away in a 1959 Rolls Royce provided by Regal Carriages.  What a terrific day for a terrific couple!  Check out a few of our favorites from the day:
