Jackie and Joe’s Whimsical Wedding

The union between Jackie and Joe was a heartfelt display of a romantic and spiritual

bond. As the couple savored their “first look,” they read each other’s personal vows in an

intimate, rustic-style studio. Through glassy eyes, choked-back emotions spilled through

the lips of these best friends-turned-lovers. You could feel the weight of their eager I

today and sharing their life with their soulmate.
