Jacqueline & Mitty are like peanut butter & chocolate…alone they’re pretty awesome, but together…..well, it’s a winning combination that’s hard to beat! We first met these two lovebirds earlier this summer, when we got together for their bello love session.
It’s not often that we first meet our couples just minutes before photographing them and still hit it off right away, but that’s exactly how it was with these two. They’re just super cool people…fun, warm, funny, and absolutely beautiful, both inside & out.
I knew even before meeting them that we were going to like these two. Before our love sessions, we give our couples a little survey with questions that let us get to know them a bit better. Andy & I provide our own answers too, to help couples feel a little less intimidated to share personal info with us. Jac & Mitty sent back their survey…all 4 pages of it…and it was like Christmas morning. Not only did we get a real inside look into who they are, and what they love about each other, but with every single, thoughtful word they were welcoming us in to their world with open arms & open hearts. And, that is gold to us.
More often than not, our couples send back surveys with one line answers…and we get it…we’re all busy and who has time for something so seemingly trivial. But, Jac & Mitty’s answers were so much fun to read. Jac’s replies were particularly verbose….which I suppose I could relate to, as anyone who’s ever got an email from me can attest…I’m never at a shortage of things to say. But, they weren’t just chatty responses, they were seriously heart-felt. And, in their words it was easy to see how much these two love & care for each other.
Their wedding a few weeks ago, in the backyard of Jac’s grandfather’s ocean front Falmouth home, was the perfect testament to just how BIG these two love …and not just each other, but their families & friends and life in general. It was such an honor to bear witness to that kind of love & celebration. It was the kind of wedding you never want to end (Well, the kind of wedding you’d never want to end if you could put down your 20 pound cameras and join everyone breaking it down on the dance floor, which we were seriously tempted to do.)
I could keep going on about how much we adore these two, but I know most folks come here to see photos…so, I’ll just let the photos do the talking. We hope you enjoy this little sneak peek into the love & celebration that was Jac & Mitty’s wedding day!
Ga ga gorgeous!!! Jac is a vision in her Ramona Keveza wedding gown. Just beautiful! And, to think, all she said to us when we first met was how awkward she is in front of the camera and how she can never take a good photo….yeah, whatever!
Mitty and the guys were getting ready at the Sea Crest Resort just down the road. The guys all wore these handsome bluish/grey suits by Isaia, and super cool plaid ties .

Last minute gloss touch ups…and away we go….
Happy looks like this…
Jac & Mitty had their first look on Jac’s grandfather’s front lawn. The property and tent just looked so beautiful thanks to the talented team at Sperry Tents, the super sweet and uber stylish Jen Chagnon at The Pink Polka Dot, and the lovely Courtney Dunbury of Courtney’s Floral Creations. We are huuuge fans of Courtney’s and this wedding was some of her best work ever. Just so beautiful and so totally Jac’s style. Awesome job Court!!
Look at that beautiful face light up at the site of her sweet mister….swooon!
Joy is this….
These two were absolutely glowing….yaaay for love!
Jac’s grandpa’s dog is a sweet old fella, who was doing his part on the wedding day to help keep Jac calm and centered….and look pretty adorable doing it.

Jac & Mitty could not have asked for a more perfect day to say, “I do!”
Side by side, now and forever!
Mitty & his besties, including his brothers, Chris & Chase (far right) before the ceremony starts at St. Barnabas in Falmouth.
Love this unscripted moment as Jac arrived via the side door, with her handsome dad, Dennis, and her soon-to-be nephews/ring bearers, Harrison & Alex.
If every day could feel like this, life would be soooo good!
Love the way Mitty gently touched Jac’s arm as she made her way to him….sometimes so much can be said in a simple touch.
Or in a look…..
We did it!!! Woooooo hooooo! Look at their faces….can you stand it?? So much happiness!!
Jac gets a love-filled hug from a friend just outside the church.
I LOOOOVE this photo of Jac, it’s almost as if she can’t believe how happy she is in this moment. Meanwhile, her super sweet parents, Dennis & Elissa, make their way out of the church.
See what I mean about Courtney’s flowers???? Just stunning! And, that floating ball of flowers in the middle of the tent must have been about 4 feet wide! Love the linens too!
A little pink sparkle and a ruffled cake by the talented staff at The Casual Gourmet. As always, Olive and her staff made sure everything ran with machine like precision, while guests enjoyed the delicious food!

A fun perspective on their first dance.
Jac played lacrosse in college and here some of her former teammates shower their gal pal with love & kisses.

Love Mitty’s expression as he listens to Christina talk about her new big brother. Just lovely!
This little star lit walkway….it provided the perfect backdrop for a little late night break from the party for our happy couple.
Sealed with a kiss…..
Honestly, there were just too many great moments to fit in this post…I could have kept sharing, but we’re already a bit late getting this online, so we had to stop somewhere. We hope you, Jac & Mitty, enjoy this little peek. More to come very soon…we promise! We cannot wait to share the entire collection with you…so many wonderful love-filled moments jammed into one day! Until then, thank you both sooooo very much for including us in your amazing wedding! We love you guys and loved being a part of this special time in your lives. You, your family & friends all made us feel so welcomed, and you two shared yourselves so selflessly. We appreciate it so much and cannot wait to see where this journey of love takes you both next!! With big love & hugs, Chris & Andy xoxoxo
