The first time I met these two, I immediately felt at ease. It was probably a mixture of their amazing sense of humor + how completely calm they were. Both of them portrayed a feeling of absolute satisfaction and were adorably in love.
I am making a point to say this because it is extremely rare to find a couple like Rachel & Cory. They were in it for the love, the marriage; for life.
This wedding was a beautiful testament to their relationship!
They had a shot at the bar where they went on their first date, a beautiful outdoor ceremony by a lake allllll combined with a donut table, I mean I was set on those alone.
But the officient carried Game of Thrones, A Song of Ice & Fire WITH a best man wearing a Hand of the King pin, PLUS famous book quotes adorning the center pieces + old library catalogs as seating charts: I died and pretty much went to “nerd” heaven.
To top it all off I couldn’t have asked for a better bridal party! Their laughter and enjoyment throughout the entire day was thrilling to photograph!
It was a true pleasure capturing these two; I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat!!
Enjoy some of my absolute faves! // xo riss
