Have you ever been to one of those weddings where everyone is super emotional the whole time and it’s unlikely you’ll get through any part of the day without at least a few happy tears being shed?
I’ve been to some like that too, but I can say for a fact that none of them even hold a candle to the amount of tears that were shed at Jackie and Anthony’s wedding at The Crossings at Carlsbad!
Out of all the weddings we (Scottie & Breanna) have photographed, none have provided us with as many tearful or joyful shots as this one did! And as you can see, we ate it up!
If there was a laugh, we were there with camera in hand, if we heard a sniffle behind us, we were quick to twirl around to capture the accompanying tender expression.
(I LOVE the one above with Jackie’s brand new husband and her younger brother!!!)
It made us feel like we were amazing photographers to capture so many candid emotional moments, but the truth is, that’s just what the entire wedding was and it’s not our photography that made these pictures special, it’s the people in them and the love they feel for one another that did the trick.
Jackie and Anthony’s family and bridal party weren’t the only one who were right there with them in emotional solidarity that day…

…the entire room at the reception was filled with all sorts of people from different areas of their lives who were all laughing boisterously while trying to wipe their tear smudged makeup before we could capture it!
You would only have to be at this wedding for 5 seconds to be able to see that Jackie and Anthony are truly amazing people who’s lives have affected many others very deeply.
That was my (Breanna’s) favorite part about this wedding… the fact that so many spontaneous loving moments were happening constantly all night, purely because Jackie and Anthony are so loved, and extend so much love to everyone around them.
This wedding was a celebration of not only Jackie and Anthony’s love for each other, but of that of everyone around them.
It was like a “this is your life” kind of night where everyone whom you’ve touched and who’s been changed by your mere presence on this earth comes to tell you what you’ve done for them.
Needless to say, this was a truly special kind of wedding. And Jackie and Anthony were blessed enough to experience it because they are such a blessing to others.
Special thanks to Jackie and Anthony for letting us be a part of such an incredibly special day for the two of you. You made us feel like we were your guests, not just your hired photographers, and that says so much about who you are and how you treat people.
If your effect on the world has been this powerful separately, we can’t wait to see what happens now that you’re a team! Congratulations!
