Rachel and Frank | Wildwood Golf Club Wedding

I met Rachel and Frank last summer at a Starbucks on McKnight Road, which was ironically the building in front of St. Sebastian Parish, the church they were to be married at.  A relaxed and cool couple, we talked about how they met and some of their wedding details (including their wedding color green which I LOVE) as we sipped coffee on the outdoor patio.  Watching the cute interactions Rachel and Frank had together that day, I knew their wedding would be something special to capture.

Fast forward to almost one year later- their wedding day-

One of my favorite moments was Rachel and Frank’s first look.  I’ll never forget the scene- a light and misty rain silently sprinkling the Golf Club’s driveway, trees and grass as lush as Ireland, and a beautiful bride gliding towards her groom as he stood with his back to her. Rachel’s heels tapping on the pavement as she crept towards Frank.  The look of anticipation and excitement on Frank’s face as he heard Rachel walk up behind him.  Then, the emotion when they turned and saw each other for the first time that day.  It was a beautiful moment to witness.  But then again, there were so many of these beautiful moments throughout their day…

I think I’m going to start a blog series called “Brides that Rocked It,” because quite a few of my LLP brides have done just that for their portraits.  Clearly, Rachel was one of them.

I mean, come on.  That light-up-a-room smile is. Simply. Unbelievable.

Heck, the series I was talking about before should actually be called “Couples that Rocked It.”  These two bossed their pictures.
