Jackie & Anthony (along with their fur-babies Mocha & Bruno) were married on September 5 with a ceremony and reception at the Coach Barn on Shelburne Farms.

I love the story of how Jackie and Anthony met, told to me by Jackie:

“We met 10 years ago at Bed Bath and Beyond. I had just arrived from Ecuador and secured my first job in the United States. Anthony approached me only a couple of days after being hired and asked me to help him find where the hair dryers go despite being a seasoned veteran at the store. To this day, he says that lame excuse to talk to me was the best thing he ever did. We went out on the first of many dates and the rest is history as they say.”

The day of the wedding, I met up with Jackie and her ladies at her house after they returned from the salon. It was fun seeing the pooches were also getting ready at the house!

Mocha and Bruno await their treats for sitting so nicely!

From there, I headed to Shelburne Farms to meet up with the boys to do some photos of them.

Then I headed up to the Inn to do photos with the girls and Jackie’s family before returning to the Coach Barn for the ceremony and the rest of the party!

Jackie’s Grandmother, who she was incredibly close to, passed away a few months ago. As a tribute to her, Anthony gave Jackie a necklace with her grandmother’s birthstone in it, which Jackie wore that day. It was a very emotional moment when she opened the gift.

The ceremony was officiated by a close family friend of Jackie’s, and it was so very personal, heartfelt, and meaningful. It was the perfect balance – with lots of poignant moments and a healthy sprinkle of light moments – that provoked the sweetest reactions from both the bride and groom.

It was a “little” balmy that day so Jackie & Anthony retreated to the Coach Barn after the ceremony to re-hydrate and cool off a bit!

Jackie’s Manolo Blahnik shoes were given to Jackie by Anthony as a present back in 2008. She said then that she’d save them for a special occasion……and she did!

The west hall was beautifully and simply decorated for the party. I love smaller Coach Barn weddings where everything happens in one place – so intimate!

Mocha & Bruno came for a visit and for some official photos with their newly married parents! They are dogs but they were so excited it felt a bit like herding cats – thankfully Jackie & Anthony took it in stride and just cracked up at their antics!
