As Rachel walked down the aisle to meet Justin she beamed with joy and excitement. He wiped away a tear as her father held her tight and gave his baby girl one last kiss on the cheek. They joined hands and walked up to the alter as two people anxious to be joined together as one. During the ceremony, Justin and Rachel each took turns sharing the most memorable moments that reminded them of their love for one another. Justin retold the story of the first time he met Rachel’s family including showing up to her church trunk or treat dressed up as Mickey Mouse to compliment Rachel’s Minnie costume. Laughter filled the sanctuary as many in attendance remembered that exact night (including me!). Their reception was a winter wonderland decorated in navy, blush with a touch of shimmer. Guests danced the night away and dined on delectable hors d’oeuvres as laughter filled the air. The best man and bridesmaids gave touching toasts but nothing beat the most emotional moment of the night. Rachel’s sister lives with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and she shared with their guests about what that meant for their family. Instead of selecting favors for guests Rachel and Justin donated to EDS research and encouraged all of their loved ones to do the same. Her sister was so shocked and everyone was brought to tears! When the night finally came to an end Rachel and Justin bid their farewells in an epic exit. Guests showered them with rose petals and with a little magic it started to snow as they ran to their getaway car! Congratulations Rachel and Justin! We loved being a part of your journey to your wedding day and are so grateful for your love and support!
