Jacqueline & Dan | New Years Eve Wedding | Downingtown Country Club Wedding
I met Jacqueline and Dan last year for their engagement session. I knew right away, these two are true love. I got to photograph their engagement session at the BEAUTIFUL Longwood Gardens in the Spring of 2018. You can check out their engagement session, HERE.
Jacqueline and Dan’s wedding rolled around. New Years Eve. It was by far the most rainy wedding I’ve ever photographed. It wasn’t a light kind of sprinkling rain – it was down pouring. All day long. But, no amount of rain could ruin their big day! Their bridal party was a blast to photograph, and everyone was high in spirits with the rain. I am even more thankful that Jacqueline and Dan were such a fantastic couple. They never let the weather get to them. Ever. They had good spirits and positive attitudes the entire time. The ceremony and reception was at the beautiful Downingtown Country Club, in Pennsylvania.
They spent their morning with their closest friends getting ready. Their romantic black and gold color scheme carried through the whole day with lots of gold glitter decorations and really added to the New Years Eve spirit. I got lots of inside portraits at the club, but still wanted to take advantage of the beautiful property- even with the rain. We had the fun challenge of taking as many outdoor portraits as possible in the pouring rain – luckily, the club has many covered patios and awnings. We used one of the beautiful stone buildings for their romantic first look. Man, I just LOVE first looks. The moment when Dan turned around and saw his bride, tears filled his eyes. We were able to get many portraits in this area, including some beautiful rainy portraits with a clear umbrella- which came out AMAZING. Another plus of the club having so many covered spots included a FUN champagne pop with the bridal party and sparklers- which allowed everyone to stay dry! :)
After saying I DO, they spent the night partying with their closet family and friends! The entire night had such a fun vibe and everyone had a blast. At the end of the night, everyone migrated to the clubs bar and celebrated as the ball dropped and welcomed in 2019. Jacqueline and Dan kissed as 2019 hit, the very first time as a married couple.
These two love birds were such a wonderful couple to photograph. The love, joy and affectionate for each other was visible all day. Weddings are beautiful rain or shine, and this wedding was SO beautiful.
Jacqueline and Dan- Thank you SO much for allowing me to capture your special day. I felt so welcomed by everyone and it was a pleasure to be a part of! I wish you forever years of joy and love. xoxo Heather
