Wedding : Rachael & Chad

I have been looking forward to Rachael & Chad’s wedding for the last year and a half or so.  Rachael and I met, probably close to 2 years now and hit it off.  We share the same love for shoes – as well as have a habit of changing our hair styles or hair color often.  : )

I had the honor of taking their family portraits last year out at their farm and was excited about returning to the farm for their wedding this year!  It took place outside on a VERY windy day in a gazebo that Chad built especially for this special occasion.  Rachael was probably one of the most laid back and relaxed brides I have seen.  She did such an amazing job with all of the planning and on the wedding day and of course looked stunning! 

The favorite part of the day for me was heading out to some old train cars to finish up the pictures with the wedding party.  I loved the lighting – the location – and the oncoming storm also helped as the dark clouds were incredible!  Ahhh yes….that was until the wind picked up and the rain started!  And that is what memories are made of!

You two hold such a special place in my heart and I wish you all the best for many years to come!



I loved the above shot because the background was Rachael’s mother’s wedding dress!
