I've thought about how I was going to start this blog post so many times, some of which were before the wedding took place. No matter what I think of, it will never do justice. Rob and Rachel gave me the chance of a lifetime. They believed in me, they loved my work, and most of all, they have become great friends. There was something that just clicked last March when Rob contacted me about shooting his wedding. Although I had met Rob a few times before, I didn't know his fiancé Rachel. The more he told me about the wedding, the more I fell in love...before even sitting down with them. Once that happened, I was hooked, and the fact that they even wanted to work with me, "Ms. never shot a wedding before," was just the icing on the cake.
As the months went on we'd meet up to plan out details, and then wedding meetings became mentioning details over wine. It certainly helped that Rob and Rachel literally lived down the street from my parents. I have no other way to describe it than Rachel and Rob are good people. Plain and simple. They are the people that invite you over for game nights, summer bbqs, and will watch your child when you're in a pinch (that really happened.)
Rachel and Rob's wedding was one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. The scenery at Laurita Winery is just out of this world, the food from Branches Catering was impeccable, the Matt Bilyks Band had the dance floor packed all night, and the wedding crowd was better than you could have ever asked for. Every detail was so well thought out and it was a true reflection of Rob and Rachel. Enough of me rambling, let's get to the good stuff :) Warning: MASSIVE over-share
THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU!
