weddings: jackie & ed

Jackie & Ed are married!  Some of you may remember Jackie & Ed’s Engagement Session, which, mind you, I posted after they were married!  Whew.  I’ve been ridiculously busy.    I have the BEST CLIENTS EVER, who understand that as a working mom of 2, I have a very, very full plate.  They say, good things come to those who wait, now, don’t they?  Without further delay, I present some of my favs (and there are just so many more) from the newly married Jackie & Ed’s wedding day!

Jackie has one of the most genuine smiles and laughs I have ever witnessed.  In case you missed their NJ Engagement Photography Session, Jackie and Ed are extremely animated – wearing their emotions on their sleeves at all times, so I knew I was in for it.

I arrive at Jackie’s house and I of course get my usual welcome!

There’s always something special about the first time  a Mother sees her daughter in her dress on the big day.

I get to the church only to see that the guys are doing exactly what I thought they were doing.  BUSTED.  Ed, the groom is in the middle, with the fire hat.
