Rachel & Ed’s Wedding

IMG_3732

Rachel and Ed are perfect for each other.  Its just a fact of life.  Like one of those things you just know when you see it, like that the sun is warm and flowers are beautiful.  You just know it.  The more you are around them, the more this feeling grows and grows.  It radiates between them and before you know it, you’re smiling too.

Rachel and Ed are active people.  They are both vets, both active in their families, and active in their church.  When they went about planning their wedding they brought all of these factors of their lives into the details.  Their wedding was one of the most personal weddings I have been too, and it was truly beautiful.  Each aspect tied in a meaning to them from the hand picked readings to every single song that was played during the ceremony.

We started the day with a First Look and bridal party photos at UT Gardens.  Rachel and Ed had the best wedding party!!  These guys were up for anything and helped the day start out with some really fun poses.

Next it was over to Immaculate Conception for the ceremony.  Rachel & Ed’s ceremony was like a big family reunion.  They hugged and greeted each guest as they came in.  The ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt.

The reception was held at Calhoun’s on the River and was complete with epic DJ entrances for each Wedding Party Member.  Rachel’s Dad and Sister (who was the Maid of Honor) both gave speeches as well as Ed’s Twin Brother (Best Man).  Each speech proved more and more how Rachel and Ed are perfect for each other.  Some speeches brought tears of joy and others, lots of laughter._MG_1535
