The day was full of excitement, tears, joy, and laughter. Excitement filled the air when the girls arrived back from the salon, and as the guys got dressed and into the limo Tears from Rachel’s father seeing his baby girl for the first time who he would be giving away in a few short hours and from Todd seeing her for the first time as she entered the aisle knowing he would get to spend the rest of his life with his best friend. Pure joy from the bride and groom as they heard the Father read their vows outloud to them, exchanging the occasional glance, smile, tear and giggle. And laughter! So much happiness from everyone celebrating the joining of these two today!
My husband grew up and is best friends with Rachel’s brother, Pete. Their parents came to our wedding and I seen them a few other times throughout the past 8 years. I only met Rachel one time so I was over the moon excited and honored when they asked me to document their wedding day. There really is no greater honor when someone you know asks you to document one of the most defining moments in their lives! Thank you so much for inviting us so warmly into your beautiful day. I hope you love this sneak peek into your day!
Rachel & Todd decided not to do a takeaway shot, but on my way out I was documenting the party from the outside (sometimes I just can’t stop 🙂 ), Rachel came over to their table to change her shoes, so I waited a few moments, then Todd started walking over!!! He SPOTTED ME!!! Woo hoo cool night time shot opportunity! We exchanged laughs and waves and then I got to capture this moment! 🙂
Big thank you to the creative team who helped make this day so memorable!
