We have been anxiously anticipating this wedding since we first booked this incredible couple. We met them for the first time in April of last year we instantly connected with Jessica and Frankie. Then, when we shot their engagement session in May we were blown away! It was like having a couple from Disney in front of our cameras and we were just in awe of their chemistry and the love they showed throughout the day. Fast forward to last weekend, our first wedding of our 2017 wedding season, and once again they blew us away! Not only with how unbelievable their connection is in front of the camera, but with their beautiful hearts and their demeanor the entire wedding day.
If you follow us on Instagram, you may have seen that it actually rained, the. entire. day. last Saturday. Thankfully, when it was time for portraits, it slowed down to a slight drizzle! We could not believe how calm and composed Jessica was about taking pictures outside in the rain. We brought out our clear umbrellas (which we used that day for the first time ever) and her and Frankie were on board the rest of the day! The fact that they were willing to do whatever we asked, with huge smiles on their faces, shows their heart behind it all.
Besides the rain and having to pull out our umbrellas for the first time, there was another epic first during this wedding… the Dark Side. Yep, you read it write, they had Darth Vader and Storm Troopers invade their wedding reception! The best part… Jessica is a HUGE Star Wars fan and she had no idea! Her reaction was absolutely priceless :) From her red-sole Louboutin’s, to their sweet portraits under the rain, to the most epic reception surprise we’ve ever witnessed, everything about this wedding was breathtaking and we couldn’t be more excited to share some of our favorites with you all today!
Oh my heart! Our first ever red-bottoms :)
Jessica decided to do a bridesmaids “first look” and it was the cutest thing! This girl can light up any room! Frankie loked so handsome in his tuxedo! That look! This church is stunning! “Hey! I’m married” :) I’m telling you, they were such troopers! We actually LOVED using these umbrellas! Love this one! Be still my heart! Then we headed to Deering Estate for some more portraits! Obsessed with these blush bridesmaids dresses! These guys were awesome! Such a fun group! It stopped raining for a little bit and we were finally able to drop the umbrellas.
Tell me they don’t look like they’re straight out of a fairytale!?
And the drizzle started again, but we weren’t mad, because how could we be with all this cuteness happening! LOVE! Rain or no rain, they were all smiles the entire day! Love this simple and classic set up! Isn’t this the cutest cake topper ever?!
First dance as Mr. and Mrs! Ok, so I was a hot mess the entire time! The party began and little did Jessica know… Yes! This really happened!!! Best wedding surprise EVER!
And her reaction was priceless :) We couldn’t stop laughing at this one
And we even got a picture with them!
Jessica and Frankie, we are beyond honored to have been a part of such a special day in your lives! Thank you for choosing us to capture it all and for being such troopers about everything! We love you both so much! You have such a special place in our hearts and we wish you all the best on this new journey as husband and wife! Welcome to the married club :)
