I was so excited when July 14th arrived because it meant I would be shooting the wedding of Jackie & Reese, a couple I have enjoyed getting to know over the past year!
I started the morning with the couple at the Portland Regency Hotel where they got ready and had their ceremony
A beautiful gift from Reese to Jackie
The couple wanted to enjoy most of their cocktail hour with their guests so they chose to do a first look, so we could get the majority of the formal photos taken before
They were so excited to see each other
A huge thank you to the couple's bridal party who were nothing but smiles despite the heat!
After a few photos of the couple it was time to head back to the Eastland for the ceremony
After the ceremony ~ Jackie, Reese and I walked to Grace where the reception was being held. We enjoed stopping at a few places to take some final photos
As a surprise to their guests~ the couple arranged for the Boston based a cappella group RedLine to entertain the guests during happy hour
Having a good time during their first dance
Father of the bride, best man and man of honor gave great toasts to the happy couple
Reese was so eager to taste that great looking cake, he didn't even wait for Jackie to feed him
After the formalities the dance floor opened up and everyone was having lots of fun
The couple enjoyed a little trivia game about each other while the guests got a chance to cool down and get a fresh drink
Then it was back to the party
Jackie signing along with a tune
People were flouting (is that a word :)?!)
And really getting into the pole dancing
The night came to an end with one final dance
Jackie & Reese~ thank you so much for letting me share in your wedding day! It truly was my pleasure!
