Jamie Sue & Jef - Married!

The sound of music filled the air as the many musicians ran through one final rehearsal. The soft fluttering of the flute and french horn danced through the air as if welcoming each guest as they arrived. With a similar bounce in her step Jamie Sue entered the church with her bridesmaids in tow. On the tips of her toes she pranced down the staircase, smiling and laughing all the way. You see Jamie Sue and Jeff have a relationship that comes with it's own soundtrack. They met thanks to music, their first date involved a concert and they incorporated so many perfectly tuned musical details into their wedding that I completely loose count of them all. Really shouldn't we all live our lives as if dancing to our own personal ipod soundtracks? Jamie Sue and Jef... I'm so delighted I could be a part of your wedding day. It was nothing short of spectacular with a sprinkling of Halloween craziness thrown in on top. Next Steven Kellogg concert I expect to see you both down front dancing and singing at the tops of your lungs.. until then.

Much love always! Jennifer

Jamie Sue is a flute player herself.. so this ring shot seemed fitting.   

Ahhh.. Jamie Sue you are gorgeous! Favorite

This random ivy covered wall was such a find... Favorite

Incredible details.. don't you just love the gold vines? 

We snuck back outside among the Freak Fest party goers for a few more shots at the Capital.


Favorite! You two are so adorable together

What was the most memorable part of your day?

The music from the ceremony, the moment we were announced as husband and wife, and the reception – it was a blast!

What is your funniest memory from your wedding day?

The costumes – it was close to Halloween, so there were a lot of fake beards, a fox mask, crazy hats, and people coming to our reception in full costume from other parties going on at the hotel. Also, there was a moment during pictures where the groomsmen were jumping up and down (to stay warm) on a mattress on the side of the road – but you couldn't see the mattress at first, so it looked they were just jumping really high in the air!

Any advice you’d share for future couples getting married?

1.      Remember that your wedding day is just the beginning of your marriage J It’s just one day, so don’t sweat the small stuff – at the end of the day, you will be married to the love of your life, and that is the most important thing that day.
2.      Take a few moments during the ceremony and reception to just freeze those moments in your mind, otherwise it will just be a blur.
3.      Have fun! Just enjoy the day – make sure to have someone who is in charge of anything that goes wrong, and they shouldn't consult you unless absolutely necessary (this person should also be in charge of the bride’s cell phone!) J

Would you change anything about your day if you could?

Everything went amazingly – we wouldn't have minded if the weather was a little warmer but at least it was sunny! J

What songs did you use for your:

First Dance – "Lucky" by Jason Mraz
Grand March – "Beautiful Day" by U2

Where did you go for your honeymoon?

We spent two weeks in Costa Rica! It was amazing, warm, and beautiful!

How did you two meet?

We met doing a Broadway-themed musical performance for a big conference at work – there was an opening for another flute player, and he was directing the band for the show. Otherwise we probably wouldn't have met – we worked in complete opposite areas of the company, but our love of music brought us together!

How long have you been dating?

At the time we got married, we had just had our three-year anniversary!

5 words to describe your bride: 

Gorgeous, pitch perfect, genuinely sweet.

5 words to describe your groom: 

Strong, loving, dependable, caring, and handsome! J

Who were your vendors?

Cake Baker Cupcakes a Go Go (worked with Wade)
DJ or BandCelebrations (worked with John Sherman)
Reception SiteThe Madison Concourse Hotel

Any great vendor experiences to share?

The cupcakes were AMAZING as well as the terrace chair-shaped cake (so cool!) that we used for cutting the cake! Also, Celebrations is the best DJ company around – John made the whole evening run smoothly and had the dance floor full the entire time! The Concourse handled all the details and made the reception so easy to plan – they were FANTASTIC! And of course our photographer took the most AMAZING pictures and captured all the wonderful moments from that day that we will cherish forever!
