If I were to redo my own wedding, it would be this wedding. And I’ve been looking forward to this wedding for a LONG time because I am CRAZY about these two people. CRAZY. They are A-MA-ZING. Really really amazing. They are just the most perfect combination of all things….soo much fun, super chill and relaxed, wonderfully thoughtful and kind, soo loving and sweet, unique and UBER cool. What also makes them special is that they wanted a beautiful, intimate wedding…but with the focus of fun, joy and meaningfulness, instead of tons of formality. They got ready together, spent the morning just having such a great time with the people closest to them.Β For wedding party photos, we hung out at a fantastic bar and just captured them enjoying time together . The connections between everyone was just soo warm and the love that radiated from everyone and everything surrounding this wedding was truly magical. Then there were soo many special moments….their first meeting and gift exchange was PRICELESS! One of the best I’ve ever seen! For Rachel…it starts with a D and ends with IAMONDS! πŸ˜‰ Lot of diamonds. WOW. and then just the icing on the cake were here GUCCI SHOES! Yep, you heard me correctly. Diamonds and Gucci in almost the same sentence. Wipe your drool ladies. Then, for Sam…a little back story. They are HUGE Black Crowes fans! Who doesn’t love a little She Talks to Angels…but it goes beyond that for them. They are friends with the band (did i mention their cool factor? see what i mean? cause we are all just friends with the members of our favorite bands, right!?) πŸ˜‰ and Rachel got one of Rich Robinson’s official concert GUITARS for Sam. TRUE STORY. Let’s just say that he talked about it ALL DAY LONG, roughly every 15 minutes, because he was that excited and just that stunned by the gift. Their gifts were soo thoughtful…and just off the HOOK. or chain. or whatever it is that kids say these days. In short, this wedding was INCREDIBLE. I loved every single minute of it and I LOVE this couple!! Rachel and Sam, I knew it from the minute that I met you that I would be totally smitten with you two and I can’t tell you how lucky I feel to have been your photographer and your friend! All my love!! xoxo!
