While the girls were getting ready in the bridal suite, Chris and the guys were putting the finishing touches on their black tuxes with bow ties and fun socks. They definitely had a blast and were so much fun!
The light coming through the trees on the love lock bridge was the perfect spot for their first look. I love the 2 different perspectives we got shooting on opposite sides of them to get the full effect of that sweet moment when Chris saw Jackie!!
Their ceremony was under the ancient oaks with wine barrels, burgundy florals and succulents. You could feel the anticipation as everyone waited for Jackie to walk down the aisle to see Chris. You would think that it’s not as dramatic when couples do a first look but honestly it always is!!! This time of day the light is perfect. My favorites of them are the ones of just the two of them in the woods, just so beautiful. Heading back, we had to get some more of those red bottoms. Bakers ranch recently re did their outdoor chapel with lamp posts and a modern clock by the peak of the roof which looks really cool and modern.
The soft romantic feel carried through the reception details wth greenery, lanters, candle light, and the draped ceiling with a crystal chandelier in the center. Jackie’s sister, Alison, was her MOH and she toasted to her sister and best friend getting married to such an amazing person. Chris’ brother was his best man talked about all the fun times they had as kids and the funniest story about how their dad forgot about Chris and didn’t realize it until they got home. You know it’s a fun party when they dance floor is packed until it’s time to line up for sparkler send off! Congratulations Jackie & Chris!!!
