By | Weddings | 10 Comments

you might have read about how excited we were for rachel and zach’s wedding in my last post about their awesome rehearsal dinner. i have to say, we had every reason to be so pumped; their wedding was incredible! the day began a little rainy (always a slight bummer for an outdoor ceremony ;)) but cleared up beautifully in time for the chairs to dry and guests to arrive sans umbrellas, how perfect! the perfection continued throughout their ceremony; their backdrop of pastures (complete with running horses in the distance – i told you, perfect!) framed by mountains was completely breathtaking. it was our first time shooting at neverland farms and (now that we know how to get there ;)) i really hope it won’t be our last! we’re shaking it up a little for you guys and splitting their wedding day into two posts so stay tuned for part II, ‘the equally perfect reception.’ (please excuse my gross overuse of the word ‘perfect’ it just describes their day so, well, p-excellently ;)) enjoy!

clearly a little princess and so so sweet!

girls can spend hours arriving and getting ready: hair then makeup – repeat! they guys usually just roll up looking this good:

the only shot with shoes, rachel is really laid back and thoughtful – after testing the mushy ground she suggested they all go barefoot!

all musicians should be encouraged to wear pinstripes, love it!

on the way to the ceremony!

the carriage was awesome; such a southern touch!

walking down the aisle, so excited to start the next chapter of her life:
