James & Danielle | Jefferson Patterson Park Wedding
I am always so excited when Emily, of Emily Chastain Photography, invites me to second shoot with her. It seems like Emily always finds the sweetest clients and the day is always a ton of fun. However, when Emily first asked me to second shoot Danielle & James’ Jefferson Patterson Park wedding, I was a little hesitant, as I would have to be at their wedding at 6:30 am!!! Luckily, I already had a wedding in the area the night before, and I was able to grab a hotel nearby. I’m not going to lie though, the promise of vegan waffles was a big motivator! (Read: Will work for vegan waffles)
When Emily first sent me the timeline, she let me know that I would need to get some images of James’ leather pants and earrings. I was having a good bit of trouble picturing the leather pants… especially at the end of May… but I must say that I was blown away with how perfect they were for James! While Emily was with Danielle, I got to hang out with James, before heading to Jefferson Patterson Park for their first look.
I love that Danielle gifted James a vintage pocket watch, that is a family heirloom. Danielle also sported a vintage pocket watch as well!See? Leather pants + James = awesome I was absolutely in love with the location that Danielle scoped for their first look. Amazing. Seriously, how fun are these two? And incredibly sweet together… I LOVE Danielle’s bird cage veil. It went perfectly with their vintage wedding theme and with James’ leather pants! James and Danielle had the sweetest wedding ceremony at Jefferson Patterson Park. I love the vintage camera theme and their tasteful ceremony decor. Their ceremony included a German log cutting ceremony; and while it didn’t quite go as planned, I think it was more representative of how life really rolls.
After the ceremony, we headed back to the reception where every detail was perfect. Did I mention there were vegan waffles?????? *winning*
I am so happy that Emily invited me along for James & Danielle’s vintage wedding at Jefferson Patterson Park! James & Danielle, I wish you many years of happiness together!
