When Rich asked me to shoot his wedding to then fiancé Rachel, I jumped at the chance. Not just because I wanted to be there to support them on their day, but also because I honestly love photographing for the people that are in my life, friends, family and co-workers alike! It's special to bear witness to milestones in their lives and to have the opportunity to capturing those moment on "film." :)
What I know about R² is that they are fun people. They met at a Halloween party several years ago, Rachel dressed as a mom and Rich a dad. A match made in heaven, people. Rachel is a nurse in real life, (and we all know nurses are awesome!) and Rich is a marketing and new media pro. I also have heard rumor of, and have not yet confirmed, that R² are parents to at least four felines. I'm fairly certain that also makes them my best friends. ;)
Rich and Rachel said their vows outdoors on the lawns at the Ann Arbor City Club here in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The bumped up the ceremony a few minutes due to the threat of a passing storm and the only drops we saw were during those first few minutes. They say that's good luck, I hear. :)
Here's a look at their June wedding:
I think Rachel looked absolutely stunning!
Rich didn't look too bad, himself!
Time for a little impromptu dance party, because, heck, they just got hitched!
Rachel spent 7 months putting together these incredibly beautiful PAPER flower bouquets.
A photobooth NEVER disappoints!
Tie for the best dance moment of the night!
Congrats Rich and Rachel!
