If you have ever met Caroline and Jacquelyn, you immediately know that they are truly meant to be together; they are each other’s home. From laughing so hard with them that I left with sore abs at their engagement session, to the planning calls along the way, it has been such a joy to get to know these two.
We started the morning at their hotel, with each of their respective wedding parties in a separate room. There was so much laughter, the scenic route to opening a champagne bottle and the following champagne bong, heartfelt letters with Monet-level drawings, and love that was practically bursting from the seams. After a zip and some buttons, we made our way over to their first look.
The excitement felt all morning was just the start; the joy over Caroline and Jacquelyn seeing each other for the first time and all throughout their portrait session could be felt by everyone there. It was just so damn wonderful to witness how much these two love each other and celebrate the next adventure.
After narrowly avoiding the rain (thank you Rochester weather for actually cooperating), those grins carried them all the way down the aisle. Caroline and Jacquelyn exchanged their vows surrounded by their favorite humans. They sealed those heartfelt words with a kiss and could not stop smiling the whole way back down the aisle.
Their reception was one for the books — there were sweet dances, a game called beer-amid (yes, a beer-chugging pyramid race. This should be a regular thing), a RENT sing-a-long, and so many lovely moments. Every person there was so thrilled to be celebrating this new step in Caroline and Jacquelyn’s lives together.
