Chance and Rachel Beth Wedding

WeddingsAmanda MohinaniComment

It all felt like home.

The church she’d grown up at was a comfortable place for both Chance and Rachel Beth, and they wanted their guests to feel that sense of simple contentment. From the decorations to the outfits to the food to the vows, their wedding was a quiet expression of them - there were no flashy extras meant to impress anyone, but rather a collective, quiet breath as they said I do.

Both Rachel Beth and Chance are hugely patriotic people, and they incorporated as many of their favorite red, white, and blue colors as possible!

Rachel Beth was the epitome of calm and collected. She never felt rushed, never stressed out, and spread joy to everyone around her.

Chance isn’t usually a very emotionally expressive man, so I had to be sneaky when I caught glimpses of his immense affection for his bride. :)

Throughout the day, he would take her bouquet and “bop” her on the head as she would dissolve into a fit of giggles.

It was as if they were an old married couple already.

True friends hug you even if you’re not a hugger. Only true friends.

They both decided to surprise each other with ring pops during the ceremony! You know you’re meant for each other when you pull the same prank….

Once the ceremony was over and the party began, they found quiet moments to enjoy each other…
