Welcome to gorgeous. A sunny afternoon at the Embassy Suites Verdae was a magical setting for Rachel + Ted on their wedding day. After a long few months of planning, Rachel, with the help of her creative mother put together beautiful, rustic details that were so detailed, intricate and thoughtful. The Embassy suites Pavilion was an amazing backdrop to the rustic, outdoor feel (and I have to mention, the food was ahhhh-mazing). I met Ted on his wedding day, and Rachel and her mom a few months ago. It was unique bouncing back and forth between the bride and groom as they were both preparing and anticipating their wedding ceremony. For the most part, they were both calm, but anxious and I could see a wave of calmness and happiness as they grasped hands at the end of the aisle where they met to say I Do. Their ceremony was touching and personal and they walked to guitar music played by Rachel's brother.
As the night wore on, I was out doing my usual laps of following the cute children, trying to make sure family members get photos, and other details and I looked over to see the dance floor with just Rachel and Ted dancing alone to their favorite song.... it was the sweetest thing to see them spend a moment to themselves dancing under the gorgeous strung lights and cloudy night sky. Absolutely adorable!
I can't go without saying that the wedding vendor team brought everything together so well to make Rachel + Ted's day a great day with family and friends and a special thanks to I Do Wedding Planners for keeping everything moving along and setting up an absolutely gorgeous day!
