Jackie & Matt | Bakers Ranch Wedding

December 7th, 2016

**WARNING – THERE’S A TON OF PICTURES** When I say that you can look at a couple and see their love for each other, Jackie and Matt are that couple.  They laugh, joke, the love in their eyes when they look at each other is absolutely undeniable.  These two are so perfect for each other […]

 

**WARNING – THERE’S A TON OF PICTURES**

When I say that you can look at a couple and see their love for each other, Jackie and Matt are that couple.  They laugh, joke, the love in their eyes when they look at each other is absolutely undeniable.  These two are so perfect for each other and it shows in every  single way.

I’ve known Matt’s family for almost 8 years now so shooting this wedding was like being with family.  The whole wedding at Baker’s Ranch was perfect.  Swanky Soiree Events transformed Bakers Ranch in a classic reception with a little twist on Christmas but not too much.

There were definitely tears (you’ll see why below), a whole lot of laughs but definitely a great time.

Huge thanks to all the vendors that made their day perfect!

Jackie & Matt both had letters to give each other but Jackie surprised him with a gift

Jackie and Matt decided they wanted to do a first look.  Literally up until the day before the wedding, Matt was a little hesitate but I’m so glad he decided to do it

When Jackie wanted a photo with her and the girls raising their bouquets, of course I said yes.  As we were doing this, the guys started mocking them and laughing.

So I made them hold the bouquets.  Don’t push me boys lol

Jackie & Matt - Baker’s Ranch Wedding

They had a memorial table with photos of family that had passed.  When I said their were tears at this wedding?  They even came from me.  This picture is from Matt’s sisters wedding that I had shot and it was the last picture taken with his dad.  The next morning, Joe passed away unexpectedly.

The kids felt that they needed to be included in the first dance too!

And then Jackie dropped the tear bomb.  She had created a slideshow of Matt & his dad.  She warned me that she was doing it but nothing prepared us for the emotion that was about to happen.  Watching Matt see memories of him and his dad was the peak of the emotional roller coaster of the day.

I usually don’t post photos of the garter “tradition” but when I saw Matt start from 10′ back, I knew something was up.  I was right!  He slid in for the removal!

Once again…thank you to the Hunsader/Leitch families for allowing me to be your paparazzi for the day!!  It’s always a blast <3
