Jacqueline and Chris' Northern Virginia Wedding - Part One!

Last week you got a chance to view the  sneak peek from Jacqueline and Chris' wedding, and here are the official part one photos to their wedding!  Jaqueline, Chris and company started out the day at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens for the couples first look, which was nothing short of adorable!  I know both Jacqueline and Chris were nervous leading up to that moment, but all of that totally melted away once they saw one another!  You can see it in the photos!  :) After the first look, we hightailed it over to McLean Presbyterian Church to take some more photos before the start of the ceremony.  I was pretty pleased with the level of sass that the groomsmen and bridal party portrayed in their shots!  It's hard to pick a winner, but I think the guys might have a slight edge over the girls.  Eh?  Maybe?  ;)  I also loved the detail shots I was able to get of the girls shoes (Jacqueline loooooves red shoes), flowers (by Flowers & Plants, Etc.) along with Jacqueline and Chris' beyond gorgeous rings!  The ceremony was absolutely beautiful, and my heart melted when Jacqueline and Chris had their first kiss as a married couple.  Seriously, it's the most classy first kiss I have ever seen!

Following the ceremony, we went back to Meadowlark (the reception site) and finished up the rest of the formals on site with Jacqueline, Chris and the wedding party.  I loved the energy everyone brought to the photos, particularly for the men jumping and the girls twirling shots!  The twirling shot was a result of the girls having really great dresses, but also because I had Chris twirl Jacqueline in an engagement shot too, so the consistency there was really nice!  I had to end with a shot that I already had in the sneak peeks, just because it's one of my fav's!

Enjoy the photos below, and stay tuned for the final part two coming your way soon!
