No two weddings are the same, and Jacqueline and Nate’s The Red Barn At Outlook Farm wedding was truly one of a kind! What made it extra special was that it was the second wedding I was fortunate enough to photograph for the same family. Back in October, I documented the wedding ceremony of Catherine (Jacqueline’s sister) and her partner, Michael. From the touching ceremony to the lively reception, this celebration was overflowing with love, happiness, and genuinely good vibes. I was honored to capture all the beautiful moments of the big day. Witnessing the family come together once more for another spectacular wedding made it such a special occasion for me too!
I started the day photographing Jacqueline and Nate’s getting-ready moments as they prepared for their big day. Jacqueline was a vision in her gorgeous wedding dress, while Nate looked sharp in his stylish suit. Their infectious energy and enthusiasm filled the air! The bridal bouquet was particularly eye-catching with its delicate pastel colors. As a lover of all things light and airy, I was instantly in love!
Jacqueline and Nate’s first look was like a scene from a fairy tale. The groom’s expression when he saw his gorgeous bride was priceless, and I am so happy that I got to capture this special moment as he stood there gazing at her with so much love in his eyes. It was pure magic! The wedding party was also a blast to photograph, with the groomsmen bringing their A-game with matching “pawsome” socks. Capturing all of their energy and excitement was an absolute joy!
The Red Barn at Outlook Farm provided the perfect setting for Jacqueline and Nate’s union. The weather was perfect, with bright sunshine and a gentle breeze. The setting for their outdoor ceremony was absolutely stunning, with a picturesque gazebo in the backdrop. It was a true sight to behold. Michael, now the brother-in-law, officiated the ceremony, and it was beautiful. One of the touching moments of the day was the exchange of heartfelt letters between the parents and the couple. These letters, along with a bottle of vintage wine, were sealed in a box to be opened on the couple’s fifth wedding anniversary. Photographing Jacqueline and Nate’s couples portraits at The Red Barn at Outlook Farm was a lot of fun too. The sprawling farm pastures and the lush greenery made for a stunning natural backdrop, resulting in breathtaking pictures.
I must say, Jacqueline and Nate’s reception was absolutely unforgettable! The venue was adorned with gorgeous wooden beams and lovely string lights that created a warm, intimate atmosphere. The maid of honor kicked off the festivities with a clever nod to Nate’s profession as a pilot, using an Aircraft Marshalling Wand during their introduction. Their social media game was on fire, too, with a clever and catchy hashtag, #themitchellshavelanded.
Jacqueline and Nate’s first dance stole my heart. They moved together so gracefully, lost in each other’s eyes. The night was full of celebration and excitement, especially on the dance floor, where guests danced to their heart’s content. The party ended on a high note with a spectacular fireworks display that left everyone awestruck.
Jacqueline and Nate, thank you for choosing me as your wedding photographer. It was an amazing celebration, and I’m privileged to have documented your big day. Congratulations, once again!

Kris was the calm in the storm that I found wedding planning to be. Kris held my hand, encouraged me and also made me laugh when I didn’t feel like laughing. She is organized, professional and is the absolute best at what she does"
