Jakki + Keith wed under a beautifully draped tree in Jakki’s parents’ backyard with their friends, family + their dog, Max with the reception following at The Lace Factory.
I second shot this wedding for Katie Slater (who was with Carla Ten Eyck at the time). When I arrived Jakki said, “I felt like I hit the jackpot!” with having me as her second shooter. Obviously, I instantly loved her.
I am so grateful to have been a part of their day. This wedding had everything: A shake for breakfast. A shake for lunch. A sensible dinner. Those shoes that nurses wear. And you can dance the night away to the sounds of Donald Duck having a Vietnam nightmare… Just kidding. I can’t seem to say, “it had everything” without following it up with a line from Stefon.
Ok, seriously, this wedding really did have everything. The love was palpable; the weather, perfect; the ceremony, intimate; the reception, fun; and the details, gorgeous + sentimental. Speaking of details, all the beautiful florals you see were done by Jakki (her bizz is: Jakkelyn Iris Designs) with the help of her friend.
Like I said, I was grateful to be a part of their wedding for many reasons. Not only was the wedding great, but I always love shooting with Katie, I got to see my industry friend, Catie (formally of Dana Bartone & Co.) who did the beautifying and I got connected with Jakki, whom I now call a friend and get to work with on a couple of upcoming weddings this year.
As always, enjoy my favorites from their day. xo
