Jackie and Lance are one of the sweetest, funniest couples I've ever met. I knew their wedding was going to be a blast after I shot their engagement session last summer.
They are super laid back and were just bursting with happiness the whole day!
They chose Harrington Farm for their venue and it was clear why. The venue had so much character with the combination of the estate for getting ready and the barn style reception space, it was a unique and charming venue!
Jackie's dress was gorgeous AND it had pockets! The best!! I really respected her decision to wear flats, too. Flats rule, heels drool!
Jackie and her mom had the sweetest moment when she arrived. Jackie had just gotten into her dress and was looking stunning!
Jackie's step-daughter Lexi got in on the group hug. The love was overflowing!
Lexi is a total spitfire and I have loved getting to know her and Jackie and Lance over this last year. Lexi came to the engagement session and got in on the fun and we did Christmas card pictures with the whole family, including their new pup Barry Goldberg!
This is Barry Goldberg. He has stolen everyone's hearts with his adorable middle part, his little tongue, and for the fact that when he shakes he turns into a fur tornado.
All the bridesmaids were in awe at how beautiful Jackie looked!
Jackie did a first look with her uncle Bill and his reaction was one of the sweetest things I've ever seen!
All the groomsmen got personalized enamel pins instead of boutonnieres and Jackie gave her uncle one too!
We took a few quick portraits of Jackie with her mom and her aunts. There are a lot of important women in her life! Her aunt did all the floral arrangements and they were beautiful!
Then it was time for the ceremony!
Lance was beaming the whole time. It was so stinking cute!
Like I said, when Barry shakes he is a fur tornado.
Cutest ring bearer I've ever seen. THE DIMPLES!!!
Lance and Lexi and probably the coolest and cutest father and daughter I've ever seen.
Jackie's uncle Bill walked her down the aisle and it was so sweet! Jackie was crying happy tears the whole way.
Lexi sang "A Million Dreams" from The Greatest Showman to celebrate the marriage and it was amazing. Lance helped her pick out the song as a surprise for Jackie, which made it even better.
Jackie's friend Mike officiated and put together a planting ceremony to symbolize the union. He had the perfect mix of funny and sweet moments!
Then it was sealed with a kiss and they were officially married!
Then it was outside for portraits!
We had to do these quickly because it was freezing. It was in the 30's, which isn't that bad, but the wind was FIERCE, so we made fast work of these.
Barry had to be in some of the pictures to show off his TUXEDO!
I checked the timestamp on these images and we were only in the field for a minute and a half! Jackie and Lance are basically models at this point, so we were able to pump it out!
We had to get some pictures of Jackie and Mike before heading inside. They've been best friends since high school (or many even longer) so I had to capture their special bond.
We did the groomsmen pictures outside, but the girls were freezing so we headed into the warmth inside for theirs!
Lance gives the best hugs!
This was while Jackie was singing "Baby Shark" in order to become THE FAVORITE AUNT!
The first dance was fabulous!
Jackie and her mom did a dance that was so sweet.
Lance's family lives in Florida, so it was important for them to get pictures with Lexi.
Lance and Lexi had THE BEST father daughter dance. They are both fabulous dancers and they followed each other so well!
Before the end of the night, Jackie surprised Lance with a birthday cake! His birthday was two days after the wedding, so I don't think he was expecting it.
His face was priceless!
I had such a wonderful time working with Jackie and Lance this past year and I wish them all the best in their marriage!
