Jackie & Omar’s Music City Wedding
I met Jackie the summer of 2013 during a trip for the ISES (The International Special Events Society) annual convention in the Bahamas. I had just become familiar with the organization and the President of my chapter suggested I go to the convention to meet other members from all over the world. Although I was new to the organization, I decided to go and take my second shooter, Jaime, along with me to network. We had an absolute blast meeting other event professionals from all over the world. Jackie was one of them. She had just moved to Nashville to work for her aunt’s destination management/corporate event company and was excited because her boyfriend, Omar, would soon be moving there after living long distance for a year. She said that when she got married, she would love for me to photograph her wedding as she had become a fan of my work. Last summer Omar popped the question and Jackie called me immediately to see if I was available. I was so happy for her and couldn’t believe I was actually going to Nashville to shoot her wedding. She said she was getting married in a recording studio (how cool is that?) and her reception would be a cocktail reception at a chic restaurant in town. As an event planner, I knew she had some amazing things planned and I couldn’t wait to see what she would put together for herself. She did an amazing job hosting a welcome dinner the night before, a beautiful wedding complete with after party at The Tequila Cowboy and mechanical bull riding and a farewell brunch. Jaime and I worked hard to scout out locations for photos and find places that would be different yet still represent Nashville and their modern wedding.
