Before putting on her gorgeous gown, Jackie and her sister grabbed their iPad and Facetimed with their grandparents who were unable to attend Jackie & Chris’s celebration. Jackie’s grandfather beamed with pride as Jackie showed him her beautiful flowers and her dress which I was photographing in the window of her childhood home. This love and family focused moment set the tone of the day and at every moment, Jackie and Chris were taking in the blessings around them. I was joined by my amazingly talented colleague, Caroline Talbot, who captured the guys getting ready as well as many other beautiful images. High school sweethearts, Jackie and Chris’s bridal party was a collection of siblings, cousins and friends who all were so happy to see this couple officially come together. Jackie chose a sparkly pair of Kate Spade shoes, which unfortunately had to be tossed aside in exchange for a walking cast. Injured a few days before her wedding day, Jackie went with the flow, adorning her new accessory with grace. Nothing could diminish the joy in her eyes and the smile that lit up across her face. Such a classic beauty, Chris kept taking her in, overjoyed to be her husband. It was so beautiful to witness. After a lovely ceremony at their local church, the party began at Pine Orchard Yacht and Country Club. Personal touches lined the sun-soaked fire places and the light and airy decor perfectly fit Jackie and Chris’s spirit. Families who had known one another for a long time were coming together and the overwhelming joy in the room was so infectious. A gorgeous couple and a gorgeous celebration.
