The bride was given in marriage by her mother, Paula, who also escorted her down the aisle. The church pews were decorated with burgundy and white bows. Jacqie wore a beautiful white faille A-line gown designed with a sweetheart neckline, ruched bodice and side drape detail. The gown was from the David’s Bridal collection. The bride’s jewelry consisted of a pair of diamond studded earrings and a J-shape diamond accented necklace, which was given to her by her mother. She also wore a silver-plated heart bracelet engraved with her newly married initials and the date of the wedding, which was given to her by her long-time best friend and maid of honor, Adrienne Flick. The bride wore a pearl and diamond accent trimmed veil underneath her hair, which was curled and swept off to the side with heart-shaped hair clips. She carried a bouquet of silk burgundy peonies and white gardenias with accents of pink roses and baby’s breath. The bouquets were created by the bride and her sister.
The groom was dressed in a black tuxedo with a white vest. The groomsmen were attired in black tuxedos with burgundy vests to match the color of the bride’s bouquet.

A reception immediately followed at the Finzel Fire Hall, which was decorated romantically in the wedding colors of black, white and burgundy. A banner created by the bride’s aunt was hung above the bridal table and read “All because two people fell in love.” The centerpiece for the bridal party table was decorated with a heart-shaped votive candle holder on top of a square mirror surrounded by flower petals. Tables were decorated with black table covers, tea light candles and vases of flowers with small squared mirrors that caught the light of the candles.
An arch was placed at the entrance way to the reception and was decorated with flowers, lights and light tulle.
The newly-married couple danced to the song “Soulmate” by Josh Turner as their first dance. Music was arranged by DJ Eric Mellotte.
