It seems like forever ago when Rachel first contacted me and we started working together… probably because it WAS forever ago! Almost 2 years ago now! It has been a delight working with these two from their engagement session in Nashville last year to their gorgeous wedding day this past Saturday! We loved capturing Stephen and Rachel’s beautiful wedding day for them! It was a delightful group of people who kept bringing a smile to my face :)
I loved watching Rachel’s eyes light up during different parts of the day… when she gave a gift to her bridesmaids and to her mom and mother-in-law. You could tell just how much Rachel loved her girls and how much they loved her. Then when Rachel saw Stephen, her eyes lit up again. I loved seeing Stephen see his bride for the first time. He slowly broke out into a bigger and bigger smile and you could see how much he adored his bride. During the ceremony, I loved watching them exchange little glances and smiles. Absolutely precious! I love these two together!
Stephen and Rachel got married in a full mass Catholic ceremony at the gorgeous St. Mary’s of the Visitation Catholic Church in downtown Huntsville then celebrated with their family and friends at their stunning reception at the Roundhouse Depot. The reception featured elegant draping and cascading greenery on the tables, which honestly took my breath away when I saw it for the first time. It was just gorgeous! Guests enjoyed drinks, hors d’oeuvres, a photobooth, and yard games (giant Jenga and Yahtzee, yes please!) outside during cocktail hour followed by a family style dinner of salad, chicken, green beans, and THE most delicious mac and cheese, just to name a few of the mouth watering dishes. After dinner, socializing and dancing completed the perfect evening.
Stephen and Rachel are two of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet. Stephen, you looked sharp! And Rachel, all day long I kept thinking to myself just how stunning you looked. You guys deserve the best! Thank you for allowing us to capture your day for you! It was truly an honor!
