We shot our 3rd wedding EVER in this church. It was nice to be back in this amazing light. ANNNND YOU’RE MARRRRRRIED!!!!!

What was the most memorable moment of your day?
rachael: After the first dances, toasts, cake cutting, and the band was just starting to play, we were done with all the mandatory “wedding” activities. Patrick and I sneaked out the back and had a moment to just breathe and take it all in. In that moment, all the anxiety melted away. Oh, and brides, if you think you can hide from Bobbi, you are mistaken… she definately followed us out and we then had an impromptu photo session.
patrick: Learning too late that we were supposed to go straight into our first dance right away. Neither of us knew what was going on when they started playing our song and had to back track through the crowd. We finally realized what was going on and had a good laugh out of it.
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
rachael: Don’t make decisions in your wedding planning based on anything other than what is going to make you enjoy your day.
patrick: Buy your own tux.
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
rachael: not a thing!
patrick: I would have kissed my bride during the ceremony. For some reason the deacon did not lead us into that.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
GREECE! It was excellent, even if it was a bit longer than anticipated. Patrick got an ear infection and we had to stay there an extra 6 days… DARN.
Thanks for being gorgeous 😀 Much love friends!
