As a founding member of one of the country’s favorite bands (TRAIN), music is Jimmy’s livelihood and what brought him and Lindsay together (read their love story later in this feature!) so naturally it was a key element of their celebration. We asked Lindsay for a few songs that meant a great deal to them, and our design team hand-lettered lyrics to a craft paper covered marquis. Continuing the rustic, natural styling, we used farm tables, painted boxes, soft hued flowers, vines and hand lettered menus. Guests were treated to a rustic Italian menu by private chef Anthony Montgomery and live acoustic music performed by Nashville’s Rob Higginbotham. Wines from Train’s “Save Me San Francisco Wine Company” accompanied the celebration, and one special bottle was saved for Jimmy and Lindsay to open on their first anniversary.
Jimmy and Lindsay said they were glad it rained, because the entire setting was more intimate and beautiful than they could have expected. Enjoy their reception images by Kristyn Hogan!
Jimmy and Lindsay both grew up in Morris, IL, went to the same Jr. High and High School, but at different times. Lindsay shares, “After Jimmy graduated he left our hometown to pursue his dream of being a musician and after I graduated, I headed to college and then Chicago to start my career with Spencer Stuart. Jimmy became the guitarist for Train. In September 2009, Jimmy was living in Las Vegas and was in Chicago for a performance when he drove the hour to Morris to visit his family for a weekend. I happened to be making the trip from Chicago to Morris to visit my parents the same weekend. As it turns out, we found ourselves both going downtown to listen to a local band and that is when and where we met for the first time. We knew almost immediately that we had something special. We joke that it took him touring/flying around the world eight times just to meet a girl from his hometown.”
