Kaitlyn began her wedding day at The Buzz Salon where she and her bridal party got their hair and makeup done. They then headed over to Zion Lutheran Church where Jimmy and the guys were getting ready downstairs. Jimmy told us about the rings he wears around his neck that belonged to his grandparents, and how special they are to him.
Upstairs, Kaitlyn and her bridesmaids got dressed and then their photographer, Lauren Kirts Photography, took them outside for photos. After they finished, Jimmy and his groomsmen were next. Kaitlyn and Jimmy decided to not see each other before the ceremony and you can see the reaction Jimmy had when seeing Kaitlyn for the first time that day as she walked down the aisle.
Kaitlyn’s grandmothers took the place of flower girls and preceded her, holding a sign that declared, “Here comes the bride.” During the ceremony, Pastor Stuckwisch talked about how well-dressed Kaitlyn and Jimmy were for their wedding day which is an illustration for the salvation God has given to all of us.
Immediately following the ceremony, Kaitlyn and Jimmy walked through their guests and hopped on a trolly with the rest of their wedding party. They headed over to Schneider’s Nursery for a few more photos before making their way to the reception at The American Legion in Seymour.
Their DJ, Drew Storey, with Premiere DJs announced the bridal party into the room and after dinner Kaitlyn and Jimmy cut their cake. Once they had finished the traditional dances, Drew had the groomsmen and bridesmaids participate in a competition. Rather than do a dollar dance, the guys and girls had to go around the room collecting money from the guests for the bride and groom. Whichever collected the least amount would have to do push-ups. Although the guys won, all of the money was given to the girls and the groomsmen instead had to perform the Chicken Dance. After Kaitlyn threw her bouquet, Jimmy surprised her by coming out in his full firefighter gear for the garter toss.
