Last fall, we met up with Jackie and Matt (and Hue! Their Great Dane) at Hartwood Acres. You know Hue was making another appearance at the wedding in August!

These two met on Bumble – they are both Pitt alum. They got engaged in Muir Woods outside San Francisco on their winery tour!

We started the day with the ladies at Matt’s parents’ home in Wexford. The ladies (and bridesman) got ready together and then we headed to church to capture the guys. Jackie and Matt shared a first look in front of the church and read letters from each other.

Following the ceremony at St. Alexis, the couple did a bubble exit. The rain was starting to threaten, so we wrapped up family photos and headed down to Oakland.

In Oakland, we worked in the area between Heinz Chapel and the Cathedral to get as many photos as possible in the rainstorm. Luckily, the rain was light! (Later in the night, we did have wild lightning!) After the photos in Oakland, Jackie touched up her hair – I am officially adding a blow dryer to my emergency kit on the wedding day!

Hue came in for the introductions at Soldiers and Sailors (he did say goodbye before dinner!) The couple took dance lessons and included lifts, dips, and spins! Jackie wanted a “Last Supper” photo which I feel took a moment to create – so thank you to the patient wedding party and my assistant for getting this image!

Afterwards, the dance floor was packed until the sparkler send off (the rain held off!) After the sparklers, the couple re-entered the ballroom and did a final last dance together in the empty room before heading to the after party!

Note to the couple:

­Jackie and Matt, thank you for letting us be a part of your special day! It was a pleasure to work with the two of you! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always. Congratulations!
