The Inn at Villanova University Wedding || Jacquelyn and Jaime
There are so many great places at the University of Villanova for photos. We love when couples get married in the chapel there. That is always an important location for Villanova students. And Jaime and Jacquelyn were no exception. They were thrilled to put their names on the list to have their ceremony at the beautiful church there. But what I really enjoy are the reception at the Inn at Villanova University. Who knew there was so many amazing photo places back there. This Inn at Villanova University wedding looked just like an English garden, so charming.
Jacquelyn and Jaime met their freshman year at Villanova. Jaime is from Puerto Rico and Jacquelyn grew up in California and Hawaii (you will see touches of this in their flowers and décor). So it was fate that they met. Jacquelyn is currently a nurse in a NIC unit and Jaime is in construction. This awesome couple now lives in Alexandria.
We started their day getting ready with the girls. There’s so many great spaces to get ready here. The bride had a room of her own to put her dress on while the girls were able to get ready another room. Lots of room and talk about such pretty light. I love her dress by Lillian west. But My favorite piece had to be her necklace. It is actually a family heirloom and the earrings were the same ones her mom wore at her own wedding. How sweet is that! The couple wasn’t doing a first look so we did a bunch of photos before hand, the guys over at the church and girls at the Inn.
Saint Thomas of Villanova Church is AMAZINGLY beautiful.
It’s such a romantic place for a wedding. Unfortunately they don’t give you enough time to do photos after the ceremony. Not even right outside the church because they have back to back weddings. This is a big bummer, I hope they consider giving their couples more time to get the photos they want there. Even with the time constraint, we were able to get a few photos on the bridge. And some awesome drone photos and video before heading to the Inn.
The grounds at the Inn are so beautiful. We did some wedding party photos before finishing up with the couple. They’re just so sweet and adorable together. I love the way he looks at her. We were a bit rushed because you could tell it was going to rain any moment. And as predicted the rain started to pour about five minutes after we finished up. Talk about good luck.
The reception was filled with heartfelt toasts and lots of dancing. It was also Jaime’s birthday as well Jacquelyn’s brothers. Everybody wore birthday hats, sang happy birthday and they blew out the candles. I love how this wedding truly was a family affair. We had such a great time. We hope they have a wonderful time on their trip to Greece and then to Naples.
