Franklin Wedding Photographer

  • Jason + Jackie

Are you ready for a beautiful Christmas wedding!? This is the very first Christmas wedding EVER for Inspired Designs! It is also the first night wedding! Yikes! Not only was it dark, it was sleeting outside.  Normally, for a natural light photographer, this would have been nightmare, but that sooo wasn’t the case.  Jason and Jackie are probably one of the most easy going couples I have ever worked with and their sweet and gentle personalities made everything about their day flow beautifully!  The fun thing about Jason and Jackie is that I feel like I’ve known them forever! We met for a consultation, then I shot Jackie’s bridal portraits and then we did their super fun engagements in Jason’s cotton fields! It’s such an honor to be able to come to a wedding and actually feel like part of the family.  I love it.


Jason and Jackie, your love for your families and for one another is contagious and it was SUCH an privilege to be a part of your big day! I wish you the very best as your start your new life together! Hope you are having a blast in Jamaica!

I loved Jackie’s shoes!

I love this next one because it was such a random shot but it shows off Jackie’s pearl bracelet that was her wedding gift from Jason!

Looking at her parents:)

See that huge ball of REAL mistletoe? Yea, Jason shot that out of a tree! No big deal.

Special special thanks to my WONDERFUL roommate Steph for tagging along with me! I seriously couldn’t have done it without her! She helped so much and made the day so much fun!:)

    KK this is such a great wedding! Even at night these pictures look awesome! I love all of the black and white and the glowy look from the lights in the doorway! And the black and white shot down the aisle was awesome! Also, I lovedd the homey-feeling that the reception pictures had and how you showcased the couple soo well.

    […] Use pine cones, berries, twigs and sprigs of fir for centrepieces, on chairs and down the aisle to create an enchanted winter wonderland. The colour combination of reds, greens and whites against a dark wooded interior or rustic barn works beautifully – especially if it’s mistletoe hanging from an arch! Photography by Catelyn James.
