Jackie and I met when we worked for the world’s largest online retailer headquarters’ Accounting department. We immediately bonded, not just because we worked long hours and spent lots of time together, but because I think she’s a cool chick! When Jackie’s introduced to you, her face lights with the warmest smile as she reaches out her hands to shake yours. It kinda makes you feel like she’s a childhood friend of yours whom you haven’t seen for a long time! I’ve since left my job and Jackie’s moved onto another department within the company. But you know that saying when people ask you if you miss your work, you say “I don’t miss the work, but I miss the people”? That’s exactly how I feel. Jackie and I used to take coffee breaks to vent about ginormous spreadsheets that’d make our eyes cross and send us home with migraines. And we’d laugh about it before returning back to those dreadful spreadsheets. It’s the friendships that we’ve made as we struggle to work 12 hours days that I miss. The actually working 12 hour days part, not so much!
During one of our coffee breaks, I asked Jackie about wedding planning and whether she was excited about the big day. And her answer back to me was, “I just want to be married to Justin”. It was such a simple answer, but it was a pure one. I can tell she loved Justin with all her heart and immediately knew these kids were going to make it. Justin has always been a calm guy. At least he was always calm, cool, and collected when he was around me. So when it came to him reading his vows to Jackie on the alter and he had trouble getting out his words, it truly touched my heart. Their personal vows to each other were so sweet, I had to try to compose myself behind the camera view finder. And it’s weddings like this that makes me love what I do.
Take a look at these two kids’ wedding sneak peek below.
Jackie's dress was one of the most gorgeous ones I've ever seen. But then again, what else can you expect from Vera Wang?
Purple was definitely a popular color this past wedding season. And Jackie's bridesmaids rocked these cute JCrew dresses.
Right before sunset, we grabbed Jackie+Justin and made sure we got some golden hour shots. Just gorgeous!
