We were so excited when Jackie and Chris asked us to photograph their day!
A Disney weddings “Dream Team” was on hand with Tyler of Beyond Videography by our side and Carol, one of our favorite DFTW planners leading the day! When we learned Jackie and Chris also dressed up as Lilo and Stitch for Halloween one year, we knew we’d be a great match! <3
We showed up to a villa at the Boardwalk Inn to capture Jackie and her girls getting ready. Nate and I love to ease into wedding day photos by starting with photographing our couple’s wedding details. My favorite thing to photograph lately is wedding rings! We’ve had more and more couples keeping these in the bride’s room when we get there so I can get a variety of photos in natural light before the ceremony. :) It also gives me more time to play with the rings on some personal items, like invitations or other trinkets like this- a drawing by one of Jackie’s bridesmaids!
Jackie’s mother and maid-of-honor got her dressed, and then we headed out to the porch for a little “bridesmaid first-look.” So sweet! <3
Richard is just as much a part of the Grand Floridian to me as the grand staircase! <3
The best “train conductor” there ever was! <3
Loooooooove! <3 The groom played tennis at Brown University and I believe they’re doing tennisy things here!
How do you get two shy flower girls to bolt down the aisle? Bribe them by holding out juice pouches! <3
Oh, yeah- Jackie SANG her way down the aisle!! It was amazing!
This liiiiight. <3
First married fist bump! <3 Ok, technically the second- We had them re-do it. ;)
My favorite, y’all! <3
I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s common for unique things to come in two’s at our weddings. This week, we had two amazing choreographed first dances! You couldn’t even see them mouthing out “One two three, one two three!” This first photo is one I got of them practicing their first dance in their empty reception before guests came in…
… And then Nate grabbed these during their actual first dance! :)
I. MEAN. <3
I’ve never cried so much during a wedding toast!!! Jackie’s sweet college roommate was able to work in Snape’s “Always” into the end of her wedding toast. Cue my Hufflepuff tears!! :)
Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuch a dance-y reception!!! :)
Jackie and Chris, we had TOO MUCH FUN!!! Thank y’all for having us!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
