rachel & ken are so different from one another on paper but once you meet them and see them together, their differences meld together and create the most vibrant couple- full of life and laughter and love. separately, they are opposites but together they are a force! and it really seems like together, they lead one another to experience life more fully. does that even make sense? i barely understand what i’m trying to say here so really, i just hope one day you meet a couple like rachel & ken- a couple that makes you smile and laugh and think and examine. matt & i feel so lucky to know them.
their wedding day was perfect- every detail was infused with rachel’s impeccable taste and style- down to the tips of her toes! here are a few of our favorites:
rachel gave ken the most amazing travel guitar as a wedding gift. his excitement was obvious from the first second he realized what it was:
rachel & ken designed their invitations to their exact specifications- don’t you love them!?
rachel is just stunning- i’m particularly in love with her hair and adorable dimples (i’ve ALWAYS wanted dimples! when i was little i tried to figure out how to hold my expression in such a way that it looked like i had dimples, am i the only one?)
rachel and her family are really close and shooting portraits with them was hilarious and entertaining, love:
just after portraits rachel & ken saw one another for the first time on their wedding day. it was such a sweet moment full of excitement and love, so happy to have witnessed this:
ken’s sharp wit is quiet and subtle- and no one can make rachel laugh harder, adorable:
i couldn’t resist sharing a few detail shots from the entry way- guests passed through and found their name and table number on this vintage ledger that rachel and her mom repurposed- so unique! i also love that rachel & ken included the globe- they’ve done SO much traveling already but i know exploring the whole world together will be a big part of their future!
we’ll get back to more beautiful details later but for now, the ceremony. rachel & ken were married in the center of the room, surrounded on all sides by their family and friends. i really loved the setup- it was like a big supportive hug all the way through the ceremony!
as the ceremony drew to a close, the sun began to drop and cast it’s stunningly vibrant rays across the venue. such drama:
while everyone enjoyed a sunset cocktail hour, matt & i were able to capture some of rachel & ken’s thoughtful details as they were set up inside. the legendary steve bales of bold american events perfected every inch of the space, stunning. if only i could figure out a way for him to style my life… :)
the hora (traditional jewish dance) was so awesome- friends and family were holding hands, dancing together and raising rachel & ken above their heads:
rachel & ken, you’re so so perfect together. it was such a joy to capture every moment of your wedding day- it was perfect! we wish you guys the very best!
