One week ago, Jacquelyn and Jeffrey had the most perfect weather for their wedding day. In the middle of August! Yup! Who would’ve thought that August 10th would be one of the most beautiful days of the entire summer! Normally August is so hot, but Jackie and Jeff’s day was a perfect 79 degrees, zero humidity, and delightfully breezy day. We could not have asked for a more perfect day for our sweet couple!
Jackie started out her day at her family’s home where she spent the morning with her bridesmaids getting ready. They had such a relaxed morning with lots of laughs but also lots of emotional moments, too. It was such a nice start to the day, and it was made even better when Laurie from Laurelwood Designs showed up to deliver Jackie’s florals. Wait until you see the florals!
While the ladies were getting ready at Jackie’s parents’ home, Jeff was getting ready with his groomsmen at their venue, Indian Trail Club. This is one of my favorite venues and if you haven’t been there yet, you’re about to see why in the images below. It’s such a stunning location and I just love all the natural light and scenic landscapes that surround this venue. It also has an elegant space for groom prep, and Jeff took full advantage of it before heading off to the ceremony.
Jackie and Jeff were married in a traditional Catholic ceremony. My favorite part was seeing Jeff’s big smile as he watched his bride walk down the aisle with her own joyful smile. These two make such a wonderful couple and their joy is just contagious! After their ceremony, we headed to Indian Trail Club. This venue is one of the most beautiful venues for summer weddings! Its gorgeous location provides so much natural light and it was absolutely stunning for Jackie and Jeffrey’s wedding day. These two combined pink hues with formal black ties and the combination was simply stunning. I also loved their reception details. From a unique seating display with engraved mirrored stirrers to a fun signature drink in honor of their dog, Molly, not to mention floral table runners and organic blooms everywhere, this wedding was just beautiful.
For their portraits, we took full advantage of the ITC grounds and I had such a good time capturing Jackie and Jeffrey together as well as with their family and wedding party. I will admit, though, that I had an even better time capturing them all at the reception. These two had one of the liveliest dance floors I’ve seen all year! They had the best band and their guests were on the dance floor non-stop. It was so great to see everyone celebrating our happy couple!
Jackie and Jeff, congratulations on your wedding – what a beautiful day you had!! I wish you much love, joy, and health! Enjoy the rest of your honeymoon in Hawaii!
