A word from the photographer: There was no lack of love, happiness or smiles at Jackie and Harrison's wedding. The two have been together since high school, and have everything going for them. After dating for 9 years they decided to tie the knot with all of their friends and family there to celebrate with them. August Moon was the perfect venue for what they envision, a weekend of outdoor fun and hanging out. The house and adjacent garage allows friends and family to stay on site, and the beautiful forest and fields make for amazing photos.
Jackie got ready with her wonderful group of bridesmaids. She is so comfortable in her own skin and true to herself, it is something that I feel you don't see that often and it was a breath of fresh air. Her sister did a great job of keeping her laughing while she was getting her hair done, and her friends all looked beautiful in their two-piece bridesmaid gowns. I loved Jackie's details, right down to her converse after-party shoes.
Harrison and his groomsmen were getting ready at August Moon as well. He looked so dapper with his blush bow tie and loose curls.
Jackie and Harrison did a first look before the ceremony. They wanted to take all of their photos early on so that they could enjoy as much time as possible with family and friends after the ceremony. The grounds of August Moon worked perfectly for portraits.
The ceremony setup was gorgeous. A handmade quilt which featured bits of fabric from all of the woman in Jackie's family was placed on one corner of the arch, it was such a special added touch. After the ceremony the wedding party made their way to the tennis club house for a intimate toast. Jackie headed that way hand and hand with her new mother-in-law. The reception was held under a large tent with wild flowers set along the center of each table. Jackie and Harrison had fun with a choreographed dance, and speeches were made by the best man and maid of honor.
