Rachel had been planning for this day for 11 years. She'd known that Charlie was the one for her for a long time, and there was no need to wait any longer! Charlie and Rachel share a long history and a tender love story and it was a huge honor to capture the celebration and beginning of their new life together (especially after getting to be part of the proposal)!
You know it's going to be a blast when friends ask you to photograph their wedding day... but you know it's going to be even more fun when your husband is in the bridal party! :) I can never get over how much trust we're given as wedding photographers, and what an amazing privilege it is to be able to capture such a life changing day for two people who vow to spend the rest of their lives together. Yay weddings!!
The day started with soft and lovely details.
Like these personalized rings! How unique and beautiful are they??
Rachel surrounded herself with her tribe of women - supportive and lovely!
I love the stillness in these photos, as she prepares to go see her groom for the first time!
They were so excited to be getting married!
The noonday sun was relentless and HOT, but they didn't really care. It just brightened their excitement!
On a day full of people and busyness, these quiet, sweet moments are some of my absolute favorites!
It really didn't take much at all for these girls to break into giggles!
And Charlie's guys made sure he was never serious for too long!
I couldn't get over how glorious her dress was!!
First kiss as husband and wife!!
Now off to celebrate with cupcakes and dancing!!
Rachel and Charlie - CONGRATS!! You did it!! Being married is probably the best thing ever, so enjoy every moment of it as you get started in your new life together. Love you two BUNCHES!! <3
