Rachel & Patrick

May 21, 2022

CONGRATS Mr. and Mrs. Ray! And yes her name is now Rachel Ray 😂

And SHEW I am still cooling off from this one! Rachel and Patrick and the most perfect radiant blue skies for their big day… but along with that came the HEAT. Nearly 95° and humid to be exact. The pastor joked that we all could feel the warmth of their love and he wasn’t kidding! Following the Ceremony, the bride and groom hilariously snuck away and hid out in the venue’s walk-in freezer.

To set up their perfect day, Kiara with Ann’s Garden florals did an exceptional job decking out the venue from floor to ceiling and I literally mean floor to ceiling. Not only were there florals hanging from the ceiling, vines elegantly wrapped the columns all the way TO the ceiling. The arrangements for the ceremony barrels and main tables were some of the biggest I have ever seen! Perfect, perfect, prefect.

There were two more things I LOVED from Rachel & Patrick’s wedding. One was the rose petal toss as they exited the Ceremony which added so much fun and romance to an already happy moment. The second thing I loved, which I see becoming more of a trend, is adding a Mother-Daughter dance in addition to the Daddy-Daughter dance. Traditions all had to start from somewhere and I am all about starting the tradition of dancing with ~whoever~ is special in your life!

I hope you both are enjoying married life, congrats again Rachel & Patrick!
