Finally the day had arrived for Jacqui and Jamie’s San Diego craft beer wedding! We met them over a year ago, so it’s been a greatly anticipated day for us all.
Jacqui was so excited about those fabulously bling-y shoes and how much do you love those collar stays? It’s a great little inside joke of theirs about how 86 is a good number to live together until 😉 NICE JOB, Mom! Representing with the wedding party toast there! While getting ready Jacqui made a point of involving each person for a specific task. She shared some really special moments, connecting with each of them. And you can always count on a sibling for a little comic relief… Perfect timing! Meanwhile, Jamie was enjoying a champagne toast with her crew too. What can we say? Great minds think alike!!Jamie was surrounded by her crew, with all hands on deck getting her perfectly prepped to see Jacqui! Katie and mom having a big moment as the veil was fixed up and they could step back and see Jamie for the first time. <3 The moments of letting it sink in that it’s really truly actually happening TODAY!I was hanging out with Jacqui getting her ready to see Jamie and she was seriously just about ready to jump out of her skin with excitement and anticipation!And then completely overwhelmed at the sight of her gorgeous bride!Heartfelt tears followed by loads of giddy laughter. Perfectly these two. Then it was time for the wedding party VIPs to join us. Seriously—SUCH an amazing group of people! Not only do all these peeps love Jacqui and Jamie to pieces, but they all love to laugh together so much. I could hang out with them every single day… Kind of want to adopt them all <3We had a few minutes to steal the two brides away for some portraits. Don’t they both look spectacularly stunning?!Jacqui’s been talking about her custom tux for the past year and it did NOT disappoint! And seriously—doesn’t Jamie look like a Greek Goddess?! Ok, seriously… these two are so freakin’ sweet with each other. 100% support and love. All the way. As the sun dipped down, it was time to get these two MARRIED!! And, as you can see, everyone was exploding with emotion! Now, it wouldn’t be Jacqui and Jamie if there wasn’t some hysterical laughter and over the top joy involved here! Their dear friend, Jose, did a great job with their ceremony!Tender, real, raw moments. LOVE.
I so appreciate how these two amazing women wear their hearts on their sleeves. YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! After a few moments of letting it soak in, Jacqui and Jamie joined their guests for the festivities. How magical and whimsical is their reception decor?! Perfect for these devoted Disney, Pixar, and Harry Potter fans. Please note the cake topper. H/T Professor Snape 😉 Also love how they poured a special beer at the remembrance table. So perfect for their San Diego craft beer wedding! GAH! Adore. Everyone shared some really sentimental moments and great laughs during toasts before the dance party got started. Everyone migrated over to the dance floor to surround Jacqui and Jamie during their First Dance as married peeps! There’s no way to miss how specially and tenderly these two connect with one another. It warms your heart! And, of course, you gotta love how they laugh and live OUT LOUD together too! It’s contagious! So great how Jamie chose to toss a surprise break-away bouquet so that several friends walked away winners. It did get a little competitive out there, though!Okay, people… Time to get this party STARTED!!! Whoop! Whoop! Such a fun and lively crowd!! Lots of dancing, laughing, and cheering each other on.
We fully approve of all of the above. 🙂 Sometimes I have to encourage couples to get out on the dance floor together with all their guests. I think it’s awesome to feel completely surrounded by all the most amazing people in your life and appreciate that rare moment in life. I definitely didn’t have to ask these two to do so. Just all them. Soaking it all in. <3 Thank you, Jacqui and Jamie, for trusting us to document this incredible chapter in your lives. I’ve been so thankful to get to know you two as individuals and an especially dynamic couple. I absolutely cherish the new friendship we’ve developed during our time together! Much love and best wishes for everything amazing ahead of you, forever and always.
