Rene + Jackie had a beautiful ceremony at Belle Isle Conservancy on a lovely Saturday afternoon. I actually met them that day, for a quick two hour portrait and ceremony. Immediately I felt the love and felt home.

Jackie’s dress was by BHLDN and her hair was done at Anthem Hair and Health [Katelyn Shaffer].
Rene had his suit custom made, with his signature on it because he’s just that cool.

There were so many REAL moments from this wedding, so let me share a few [a lot] of my favorite moments.

This is my ultimate favorite photo from the day. Jackie’s dad’s face, the crowd looking at Rene, just perfect.

 This is what wedding photography is about, not the staged stuff, but the honest stuff.R+ J_0864R+ J_0866R+ J_0874R+ J_0877R+ J_0878R+ J_0880R+ J_0882R+ J_0885R+ J_0888R+ J_0890R+ J_0891R+ J_0896R+ J_0902R+ J_0904R+ J_0931R+ J_0910R+ J_0925R+ J_0932R+ J_0914

Rene and Jackie had a bilingual ceremony, since Rene’s family doesn’t speak much English and it was beautiful. During Jackie’s vows she also switched to Spanish to include them and to be honest it made my heart just pound right out of my chest. It was such a sensitive and personal thing to do.
