Baby on board! Nashville wedding and event planner, Jayde of Jayde J. Smith Events has shared the exciting news with us that she’s pregnant! Her and her husband Dillon held an adorable Franklin Theatre baby announcement session with Tara Winstead Photography that couldn’t be cuter. These college sweethearts have called Tennessee home for a while and we are just as excited as they are for their little bundle of joy to make a debut! To see the darling photos and learn more about this duo, take a scroll below!
Tell us about you guys as a couple/family!
Jayde: Dillon and I are college sweethearts and have lived in the Nashville / Franklin, TN area for almost 6 years. We LOVE calling this area home and very blessed to have such a great community surrounding us here! We will celebrate our 3 year wedding anniversary in March and this is our first little one to welcome to our family. Our fur babies Maggie and Jagger can’t wait to meet their new little best friend!
What was the moment like when you found out you were pregnant?
Jayde: Honestly, complete shock! We had been praying for a child for well over a year and a half and decided to focus on travel and growing our businesses. After a trip to Asheville, NC, to celebrate our birthdays, we were surprised to see two pink lines while unloading our suitcases!
How has your family reacted to your pregnancy?
Jayde: Everyone is SO excited! This is the first grandchild/great-grandchild for some and the first cousin for others. I hope this precious blessing always knows just how wanted and prayed for he or she was!!
How far along are you in the maternity photos?
Jayde: 12 weeks
How did you come up with your concept/location for your photos?
Jayde: My husband and I are both very involved in the Downtown Franklin community and have LOVED all of our experiences with shows at The Franklin Theatre. My mom is actually the one who found out you could support The Franklin Theatre by displaying a personal message and we just knew this was the perfect fit for us!
What was it like during the shoot working with the photographer?
Jayde: SO fun! Tara with Tara Winstead Photography is amazing and makes you feel so comfortable during the shoot! We had a blast and I know she is just as excited as we are. I highly recommend booking her for announcement / family photos, Mamas!
Congratulations Jayde and Dillon! We couldn’t be more excited for you both and are honored to have shared your adorable Franklin Theatre baby announcement session!
