Jackqueline and Jeremy were wed on a yacht! On water! That moved! This was my first boat wedding and it definitely kept things interesting. You may remember this beautiful couple from their Griffith Observatory engagement session, complete with pinwheels. I know how excited these two were to finally tie the knot and I was so excited for them that their wedding day had finally arrived! I was lucky enough to have my dear friend, Jen Berry, along for the ride. Thanks for the help, Jen! And thanks to Jackqueline and Jeremy for allowing me to be a part of your very important day. It was an honor and I’m so happy for the two of you!
Here are a few of my favorites from the day:
Unsurprisingly, Jackqueline looked STUNNING. She wore vintage jewelry, purchased especially for this day. It was a perfect choice for her.
The ceremony programs were designed using one of their engagement photos, which also matched their wedding invitations, as it turns out. I love when details are all tied together.
After the Western ceremony, Jackqueline and Jeremy had a Chinese tea ceremony to honor her culture. I just adore the idea of tea service in general. There’s something so soothing about it.
I was finally able to sneak away with the newlyweds for a few portraits at the very top level of the yacht. One thing I hadn’t thought about before this wedding – where there’s a moving boat, there’s wind! But Jackqueline and Jeremy were total troopers and braved that cold wind like champs.
When we headed back inside, everything was situated for the party to start. An enlargement of another engagement photo was used as a guest book, which is a great idea!
And the pinwheels from their session made another appearance in the form of place cards, which I LOVED.
Dan of DV Artistry was the videographer at this wedding and he and his team did a same-day edit to show at the end of the reception. It was fun watching Jackqueline and Jeremy’s face light up as they watched it.
Once the boat docked at the end of the night, guests were welcomed by a group of Shaolin monks who put on an amazing performance. They did crazy things like this… (don’t let the calm face of the sledgehammer guy fool you. He was using quite a lot of force and it looked painful).
Also, this… Yes, that is a METAL rod that he is snapping like a twig over his head.
The look of concern on Jackqueline’s face and the look of awe on Jeremy’s says it all…
The happy couple had a fun send off with confetti poppers. While walking through the sprays of confetti I heard Jackqueline yell, “This is SO COOL!” I’d have to agree.
Congratulations, Jeremy and Jackqueline! I hope you two are having the best time in Europe!!
