I have been dying to share these since we shot Rachel's bridals in March! We had so much fun this day, and I got to meet Rachel's mom Gayla who is a DOLL and the kindest hearted person just like Rachel! But, let's go back to Rachel who was stunning in her fabulous gown, with a full hoop and crystal and pearl encrusted bodice. We started our session at Riverbend on a super windy day, and then our next stop was at the home of a couple who I had just met that afternoon because I saw the wisteria vines while driving by and knew I just had to ask. There were so kind as they opened up their home and property for a short while for complete strangers. It was a complete honor to shoot there and ever since I've been trying to figure out how to recreate that arbor and wisteria in my own yard!

At the start of the wedding ceremony Saturday, when Rachel was being handed off to Trot by her father, as little girl next to me whispered to her mom that she was a princess! Throughout the afternoon several of the children at the wedding were in love with the fact that there was a real life princess there!
