rachel & john

This wedding was so much fun.  Rachel & John are completely made for each other, and because so, they’re downright adorable together.  Early on, I knew I’d love the overall style & feel of their wedding, mostly from e-mails exchanged with Rachel, or from simply reading John’s blog.  I also know several of their friends quite well, mostly from other weddings, which made the day even more memorable for me!  Together, Rachel & John planned a wedding that fit them to a t- a perfect blend of Southern charm and classic elegance.
