I am not sure how I have shot weddings for 12 years and missed shooting a Jackson wedding, but we finally got one! Taylor and Reed’s wedding weekend was so much fun and the weather was absolutely beautiful. We were able to kick the weekend off with a stunning rehersal dinner at The Faulkner, Jackson’s newest beautiful venue. We are so excited to finally share these! Enjoy! ~ Ann-Marie
“Reed and I met at a mutual friend’s birthday party in Nashville! After we met, we got to know each other as friends and started dating about four months later. We knew it was serious after we spent the weekend at our friend Harry’s lake house. Reed and I went from friends to best friends and now husband and wife. It’s been such a special journey!” – Taylor
“Getting dressed at my Mimi’s house made the day so very special. My bridal party got dressed at Mimi’s, as well as my mom and sister. This was so special to me because my grandmother’s house is where we grew up. We used to play baby dolls and dress up in Mimi’s old dresses upstairs as young girls. To be able to get ready for our wedding day at her house was so joyful. I will cherish those moments for the rest of my life, especially the twinkle in my Mimi’s eye as she watched me have my hair and make-up done in her upstairs bathroom. This was one of the more still, quieter moments I will never forget.️ It was so special.” – Taylor
Also, my veil was my great-grandmothers (my Mimi’s mom). The veil has been worn by my mother, aunt, great-aunt, and cousin. It’s 100 years old. It is so special to wear this veil on my wedding day just as my family members have. It truly made me feel like a princess!” – Taylor
“Reed proposed at his family’s beach condo on 30A. Reed grew up at the condo since he was a little boy. He proposed on the green grass lawn in front of the condo where he used to play football with his dad and brother. It was super sweet, and I had absolutely no idea what was happening since it was 30 minutes before Ole Miss kicked off to play the first game of the season! I was in complete shock. After Reed proposed, we went back into the condo to find my entire family and friends waiting to surprise me. My two very best friends, Annie and Rollins, were there also. I was so excited and happy beyond measure. It was the best day! We celebrated all day and then rode to Rosemary on a bus to eat dinner and dance with friends. Such a meaningful day that I will never forget.” – Taylor
“My great-grandmother (Red’s mother) was given a diamond pin when she got engaged. She saved the pin for my engagement and had it passed down to me when I was engaged. I wore the pin during the ceremony. It was surreal as I felt my great grandmother was with me. Words cannot describe how meaningful and special it was.” –Taylor
“’Take in every single moment,’ was the best advice I received, and as the bride, I highly encourage you to take in every moment! Take a step back to enjoy the small moments, they are so special and so powerful.” – Taylor
“My grandfather, Red, was able to take us from the church to the reception in his Model-T. That moment, riding in the car with him and my dad in the front seat with my husband Reed beside me was one I will cherish forever and ever. The Model-T was Red’s first car, and it is 98 years old. Red polished the car and added new lights to it the week of the wedding. He wanted it perfect for the event! This made it even more special. I am not the first bride to ride away in Red’s first car. My parents, aunt and uncle, and cousins have all ridden away in the Model T. It’s a wedding tradition in the Mcintyre family!” “ – Taylor
“Wendy and Julia Putt at Fresh Cut in Jackson are beyond amazing. They completely made all my dreams come to life. And let me tell you, they are fabulous at understanding your style, taste, and vision and then allowing that dream to come true. I cannot imagine my wedding without their help. Wendy and Julia Putt are outstanding, and the flowers and decor said it all. We love you all so very much. And I look forward to staying in touch and remaining life long close friends!
“My grandmother Mimi and my mom were my design inspiration. I wanted the wedding to feel as traditional and southern as possible, as well as beautiful. It was beyond my expectations.” – Taylor
Also, I want to brag on Taylor Square Photography. Ann-Marie and Mackenzie went above and beyond to capture the most special moments throughout the entire weekend! Ann-Marie and Mackenzie are the dream team!!!! I am so thankful for them and cannot wait a second longer to see the amazing photos they captured. Love you guys.” -Taylor
“The best advice I have for other brides is to enjoy every single moment. Take a second to enjoy the quiet moments. Do not worry about anything; it’s all about the people around you! The people around you love you and are excited to celebrate your marriage with you; that is what it is truly about. Cherish every second. It’s the best day of your life.” – Taylor
