One of our amazing Connecticut preferred wedding photographers, Carla Ten Eyck Photography sent us this Midwestern wedding filled with some good old fashion Kansas Fun. Carter and Jaime's wedding ceremony was a nice mix of Jewish and Christian traditions. Many of their friends had never heard Hebrew prayers or seen the breaking of the glass. They loved it!
The wedding took place in Belle Plain Kansas at the The Bartlett Arboretum. Which happens to be operated by one of the original members of the Dixie Chicks! Read on to here how Robin Macy introduced this pair of love birds.
Robin Macy, is the person who introduced Jaime to Carter. She is a member of the original Dixie Chicks and met Carter when she began recording her latest album "Songs from the Garden" at his recording studio, Greenjeans Studios in Wellington, Kansas. She knew quickly that he would be a good fit for Jaime and asked him, "Honey, do you have a sweetheart? Your energy is a lot like my friend Jaime's and I think you two should meet."
Love that story! You never know how you are going to meet the love of your life.
Carter wrote and composed the processional that was played by a brass quintet. Jaime knew he was doing it, but didn't hear it until the day she walked down the aisle. He also sang and recorded the song played during their first dance. It was his version of Randy Newman's "Feels Like Home."
Jaime and Carter love the Fun Barn for its rather unique charm but it's also special because it was the very first venue their Cajun and Zydeco band, "The Mudbugs" played in February 2008. The band also performed at their wedding reception with Jaime on the drums (in her wedding dress) and Carter playing fiddle and signing lead vocals.
