This wedding was wonderful! Rachel and Thomas were married in January on a freezing cold and windy (40mph) day. So much so that I had to make a hard decision of no outdoor photos until after the wedding. It would have been a detriment to the hair and makeup to do outdoor photos prior. Thankfully, their church was a beautiful, traditional Catholic church and made for the prettiest indoor photos.
Rachel was a stunning bride. All day long I heard people tell her how beautiful she was. But the best response came from Thomas. He was in awe of his bride as he should have been!
Following the ceremony we finished photos, had a fun champagne pop and then headed to the reception. Rachel is a planner, and the details of her day were so pretty. Each and every thing was touched with love.
The thing that I noticed most throughout the day was how much everyone loves Thomas and Rachel. It was extremely cold on their wedding day and every seat at the church and reception hall was filled. That proves that friends and family will always show up for those they love no matter the weather.
Congratulations, Rachel and Thomas. It was my honor to be with you and your awesome loved ones on your wedding day.
Enjoy this highlight reel.
