A truly beautiful part of life is meeting people who understand what really matters. It shows a gracefulness and courage that comes from the deepest part of the heart. Jack and Tracey are those kind of people. Besides being completely genuine, they are kind, joyful and totally in love. Every moment of their day was a dream come true.
Jack and Tracey met at a Chicago Cubs game in 2010. A day meant to be a celebration for a mutual friend, turned in to the first day of forever for Jack and Tracey (though Jack claims it took a few tries to get Tracey to agree to a date). After five years of being best friends, living in Chicago and enjoying time with their dog Bear, Jack asked Tracey if she would be his date to Cub’s games for the rest of their lives. In their kitchen, wearing pajamas, she said yes!
There were so many beautiful things about Jack and Tracey’s wedding. The Biltmore Hotel in downtown Atlanta, the classic Bentley that transported them around in style and, of course, the stunning bride and groom. But the thing that sticks with us the most about Jack and Tracey’s wedding day is the heartfelt and inclusive moments that Jack and Tracey shared with their families. They honored their loved ones so well on their day, celebrating not only their union, but all the love and support that made them who they are.
The Four Seasons Hotel. Another beautiful Atlanta landmark and where Tracey and her girls prepared for the wedding.
Tracey’s sweet bridesmaids were so much fun. We loved the toasts that brought all the girls (and maybe us a little bit) to tears.
Special moments with her mom as Tracey prepares to become a Mrs. herself.
Tracey read her letter from Jack out loud. A gesture that showed so much love and excitement. What’s a wedding without a cooler full of beer and champagne? Honestly, we might not want to find out.
Jack and his handsome groomsmen were so dapper and ready to celebrate!
Jack and Tracey’s first look was private and romantic. We love when couples take little moments to themselves during their wedding day.
The classic Bentley was the perfect touch to their sophisticated day. Not to mention a total dream to photograph!
Jack and his groomsmen had to represent the Cubs somehow! The socks were a fun touch.
Jack and Tracey stole away from the rest of their bridal party to take some pictures on the famous Jackson Street bridge over looking the Atlanta skyline. The lighting was perfect, but the sweet moments they had together created the most magic.
He may be giving his daughter away, but not before he shows his soon to be son in-law that the Braves showed up that day too!
First kiss after “I do!”
Cocktail hour while the ballroom is flipped for the reception. Saxophone included, of course.
The simple details of Jack and Tracey’s wedding blew us away. Everywhere we looked we fell in love!
First dances to start the party. The heartfelt toasts and well wishes for Jack and Tracey were some of the most genuine we have ever experienced.
Honoring their sweet parents was a priority that day.
The night ended with kisses, dancing and champagne–As all magical nights should.
