She planned the day with meticulous detail and hurried around her suite tying bows, hugging her flower girls, and writing a love note to her husband-to-be. Jackie appeared to be less concerned with her preparation as she was the welfare of her bridesmaids and family. She carelessly laughed with a glass of champagne in her hand knowing come what may, she was marrying the love of her life.

Marcus is the type of guy who's thoughtful and considerate of those around him. Since childhood, his kindness seeped from him, almost like his heart was a dam that couldn't contain all the love. Once, after procuring his first job, Marcus saved his money, bought a necklace, and boarded a bus to surprise his mom at work. He presented his mom with the necklace and it was then she knew Marcus was destined to make one lucky girl happy.

What makes Jackie and Marcus so delightful is not just their apparent love for each other, it's their ability to make their friends and family know they're not just part of their story, they are the story. Their collective narratives completed a tale of love, joy, and laughter on their wedding day.

Jackie and Marcus, your day was nothing short of beautiful and I'm thankful to have documented it. You're two of the nicest people and I wish you nothing but the best as you follow your dreams, fall deeper in love, and create great playlists together! Much Love and Appreciation… j*

Jackie started the wedding day with a pair of blinged-out Betsy Johnson shoes…

…which matched her wedding clutch…

We had to make sure we were very quiet…

…because it was a tearful wedding ceremony…

Maybe it's just me, but doesn't Marcus look like the happiest groom…ever?

After the ceremony, we headed to Hummingbird Nest Ranch for the wedding reception…there we found beautiful light and gorgeousness around every corner.

One of the nicest things about Hummingbird Nest Ranch is its privacy…and ability to make its own rules. Case in point: allowing an adorable dog to be on property with no questions asked!

JD captured this moment of a wee photographer trying to get his shot! 😉

As we finished wedding photos at Hummingbird Nest Ranch, the reception was coming to life with beautiful details and a stunning sunset…

The dessert station smelled delicious and hosted some of the cutest desserts…carefully manned by Jackie's dog, Lady…

And, really, let's just take a moment to soak in the adorableness of it all…

JD's perspective of the Grand Entrance…

…and my perspective a few moments later…

The First Dance…

You can tell a lot about a couple from the toasts given at their wedding reception…what I do know is just when I thought I couldn't like Jackie and Marcus any more than I could–boom–they became even more amazing in a matter of minutes.

The toasts were so lovely I wanted to raise a glass of bubbly!

Love.

The couple spent the night dancing and celebrating at Hummingbird Nest Ranch under the light of Italian lights and the moon…

Many thanks to the amazing team who made the wedding at Hummingbird Nest Ranch come to life…

I wouldn’t say we were business nerds but my husband just sent me a Slack message asking me to call him.

If you need me, just follow the trail of empty La Croix cans around my house.
