I have been so excited thinking about posting this blog from the minute Rachel and Taylor’s wedding day began! I am so lucky and blessed to call these two friends and to have been able to capture such a special day for them was truly an honor. For as long as I have known them, these two have always been an example of what a loving and supportive relationship looks like.
Since my husband was one of the groomsmen, I had the opportunity to attend the rehearsal dinner the evening before. Surrounded by close family and friends, it was so amazing to hear so many wonderful toasts given about Rachel and Taylor. It was evident just how much they are loved and how their relationship has affected others. Not only are they both so incredibly gracious but their passion for each other and for Christ is so inspiring. Taylor took many opportunities throughout the rehearsal and wedding day for prayer and thanksgiving. I loved that!
This was my first time shooting at the Dairy Barn and this venue did not disappoint! I can totally see why it was at the very top of Rachel’s venue list! The lofted barn provided an intimate setting perfect for the ceremony and to escape the very unexpected heavy winds and rain that ensued just minutes after starting our bridal party portraits! However, as the ceremony came to a close, the clouds parted and the skies cleared up, allowing us time to continue outdoor portraits.
Rachel’s wedding vision was a complete dream from the light pink bridesmaid dresses, to the gold accents and crisp white table linens throughout the reception space. Although the original plan for an outdoor dance floor had to be reconfigured due to the rain, the Dairy Barn was the perfect setting for a night full of good music and dancing. As soon as the DJ started playing music, I think every single guest was out on the dance floor!
I am delighted to finally share some of my favorite moments from the day! Rachel and Taylor, thank you again for allowing me to be a part of your big day! I hope you’re enjoying Aruba!!
