And just like that, the craziness of wedding “season” is over for us! Rachel + Geoff got married last Saturday, on the most beautiful September afternoon at Good Evening Ranch! We pulled up and were greeted by Rachel’s sister Sarah, who BTW is the best MOH + should be hired to do it full time! She introduced to all the girls in the cabin + then we got to grab some photos of all her pretty details! Y’all, these are DETAIL people. From the place settings at the reception, her sweet note + gift to us, to all the special ways they remembered Geoff’s mom, everything was so beautiful! Not to mention, her flowers, by Bella Flora, were to die for. We took every chance we could get to photograph her bouquet because the fresh garden roses just smelled too good to be true!
Rachel + Geoff did a first look so we were able to do all of their portraits, their wedding party + their family prior to ceremony! We have to stop and talk about their portraits because they were so stunning + dreamy to photograph. We really had to stop ourselves from continuing to take photos of them… lol. Anyway, this made the timeline of their day zoom by! They ended up having an hour of down time to hang out + breathe before the ceremony started.. which rarely happens! A definite bonus of a first look. Plus, after the ceremony they basically got to go straight to their reception and eat + hang out with all their people! Note* check out what they did with the ceremony spot! We loved all the candles.
The reception was a blast. We would personally like to say that our favorite part was Sunset Slush + we highly recommend that every bride we book from here on should invite this couple to be at their reception! Nothing better than a little Italian Ice to end the day! They also had a donut wall.. which HELLO. So fun. Their guests seemed to love it! They had dinner, shared some toasts, cut the cake + danced the night away! We also have to mention that her dad is in a band, that played live during the reception and their first dance. So special!
It was the happiest day in every way + we still feel so grateful to have been about to celebrate with them + meet their precious families! They felt like instant friends to us + were so, so kind! Geoff + Rachel, thank you so much for everything + allowing us to photograph your best day! We are praying you have many rich years of marriage together, you have some amazing support in your family + friends!
We love you all!
