His first memory of her was in the 4th grade. They were on the school bus and he remembers spotting the cutest girl he’d ever seen with her head buried deep in a book. They, along with their friend Colin, became inseparable. They have navigated middle school, high school, college, and now careers and med school.
All these years later, with Colin as part of the bridal party, these two were wed under a perfectly brilliant blue sky this past Sunday. They were one of my most relaxed, carefree couples ever and I just kept wanting to hug them for being so amazing.
They had their wedding at The Celebration Farm and when we first arrived, it was calm…and empty. The bridal suite was filled with florals, gowns, shoes, and bags. It was a perfect time for me to grab all the detail shots.
I’ve said this before: the combination of live music and the fountain at the amphitheater is so relaxing. For one second, I could close my eyes and be at a peaceful resort somewhere in Cancun.
Isn’t their bridal party stunning? Wow.
This image makes me so incredibly happy.
Oh-em-gee, Rachael! Go on, girlfriend!
I’ll just tell you right now, I’m framing this one up for my office. I love it that much.
I love their fingerprint tree!
Rachael & Lucas, words wouldn’t do it justice. I love you two. I tried writing this post several times and just couldn’t come up with the words. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Thankyouthankyou.
