The day finally arrived for Brian and Jaclyn to be married, and the minutes were winding down. As Jaclyn was getting ready for the first look, and Brian was making sure everything was set up just as they had planned, the wind was picking up-and the guests were poring in.
With an amazing bridal party surrounding Jaclyn-the ladies enjoyed cheers, a little champagne, and laughs-as they helped the bride into her dress.
Just outside, Brian was eagerly awaiting a sneak peek of his beautiful bride-to-be. As she turned the corner, and he turned to see her-he was definitely happy! He smiled from ear to ear and happily announced-"And she's all mine!!"
They shared a few minutes together as each admired the other. As some of the nerves seemed to disappear, they again went their separate ways for a final time-for it was time to 'line up'! Any minute, they would be going down the aisle-where they would stand before all of their loved ones, as they became husband and wife.
With the music beginning, and the ceremony starting, parents made their way down the aisle and to their seats-followed by Brian. To this day-Brian was perhaps the most excited groom we have seen go down the aisle! He danced his way, as he waved and gestured to loved ones, all the while still smiling, and celebrating this moment!
Following his entrance, the bridal party came in pairs, and finally-everybody stood to welcome the stunning Jaclyn. She was gorgeous-and kept her eyes on her guy as she was escorted by her father down the aisle.
The ceremony was intimate and heartfelt. The couple looked sincerely smitten as they shared their vows, wiped their tears, and sealed the deal with a kiss.
As they were declared Mr. and Mrs. Castaneda for the very first time, their guests clapped, cheered and blew bubbles-ready to celebrate!
And of course, everybody was ready to have some fun and pose with the newlyweds!
Toasts and dinner followed. And of course, the first dance as husband and wife. As they danced to Keith Sweat "Make it Last", they looked as if they were in their own world. Smiling about everything that had just transpired, and romantic-as they stole small kisses and close hugs the entire time.
A dance with the Bride and her Father followed, as did a special dance for the Groom and his mom. The dance floor was opened up, and many celebrated and danced the night away! The night was beautiful, and there was so much joy.
A huge congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Castaneda! We wish them many years of love, wonder, and friendship together. There is nothing like marrying your best friend, and judging by the ease and romance that these two shared while taking their bridal portraits-we know they have a lot to look forward to!
