There is nothing more exciting then seeing one of your best friends happy, and there is no denying that I’ve never seen Jackie smile the way that she does with Zack. The first time I met Zack, he was “that guy” owning the dance floor at a wedding that I was shooting. (You should ask him to show you some of his Michael Jackson moves in particular!) What makes the story even more fun is that Jackie was my 2nd photographer for that wedding, but I let her go before the dance party started, so she missed out on falling in love with Zack THAT DAY. A couple months later, Jackie at I were at an Illegal Pete’s watching our friend’s band play, when in walks this crew of dudes in neon spandex and headbands. It was impossible not to stare, and we quickly made eye contact with Zack, in his mostly-unbuttoned jumpsuit (right- it was a jumpsuit?!). We recognized each other as “the photographer” and “the dancing guy” and after the show I left Jackie alone with this crazy guy. I guess they had things in common and junk because they were mostly inseparable ever since. I had some best-friend doubts because of how quickly they fell in love, but come on, that’s like my job and stuff. So YAY – 5ish years later, here we are – he finally put a ring on it!
I have known Jackie and her beautiful daughter AnnaBelle for over 10 years now and have wanted nothing more for them to find just the right guy to fit into their little family. Aside from knowing how well Zack loves my friend, he is also so great with AnnaBelle and I mean seriously, what else could I hope for?! I am so stoked for you all and I could not be more honored to be a part of this whole story. So much love – Jo
