We knew that Rachel and Zach were about to have a beautiful wedding day when we arrived to find them both grinning ear to ear.

Rachel was absolutely glowing with her delicate braided updo and classic sleeveless wedding gown. Her bridesmaids were supportive, sweet, and all creative; they each put together their own fresh bouquets for the wedding and filled with room with lots of cheer!

The creativity didn’t stop there. Rachel’s brother accompanied the ceremony with his singing and guitar-playing, except when he took a break to walk his sister up the isle. The ceremony was full of special details; Rachel’s longtime friend officiated with enthusiasm and the guests all sang a hymn together in celebration as the finale.

After the ceremony, we caught some beautiful moments of the newly weds together, as well as photos of the bridesmaids in their flowing scarlet gowns and the groomsmen in their suits and suspenders.

The reception was a blast! The party didn’t stop for a second, and the dance floor was packed all night long. One of the sweetest highlights of the night was Rachel and Zach’s wedding cake, which they baked themselves! And Zach’s family baked most of the homemade cookies that covered an entire banquet table.

Rachel and Zach shared a joy-filled and beautiful wedding day! So many family members and friends had a hand in the beauty of their unforgettable wedding, but Rachel and Zach’s excitement lit up the day and night!
