2023 wedding season has officially arrived & I had the great pleasure of capturing Jackie & Zac’s wedding at one of my favorite wedding venues, The Inn at Willow Grove. It’s crazy to think that before their wedding I hadn’t seen this adorable couple in a little over a year since we captured their engagement session in downtown Alexandria. That was also when I had the pleasure of meeting their adorable fur baby, Bella, who really seemed to steal the show with her “flower girl” apparel. Get ready to see some adorable pup images!
Although we had overcast skies for Jackie & Zac’s wedding, The Inn at Willow Grove couldn’t be more beautiful at Spring time. Jackie wore the most beautiful, blush Manolo Blahnik heels with a classic wedding gown adorned with the most classy bow. Jackie’s long veil blew so effortlessly in the breeze & it made all of my wedding photographer dreams come true. Not to mention that the color palette was absolutely stunning for this Spring wedding, complete with gorgeous floral arrangements from Lacy’s Florists.
Jackie & Zac shared an intimate first look where they shared the warmest embrace. Their wedding ceremony took place in the box garden amongst family & friends, while their recessional was accompanied with a kiss while being showered with flower petals. It was the most picture perfect moment. Jackie & Zac had a lively wedding reception filled with music (thanks to PT Event Group!), dancing, drinks, toasts, & even a live painter (Ben Keys) who was simply AMAZING at his craft! Since Jackie & Zac love to travel (and have already traveled to many places!), their reception theme had to do with traveling around the world. Their reception details displayed just that with a unique mapped out seating chart (literally), a personalized globe for guests to sign, & a dessert table that was to die for (holy cannoli!). There were so many finishing touches that made Jackie & Zac’s wedding truly special & unique. I just loved working with these two!
Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Cretella!
