Rachael and Bobby’s day was an absolute dream. Their gorgeous details, their nod to”The Wizard of Oz” (which is a favorite of both of theirs) to their romantic golden hour moments- this was truly an amazing day. Even though it was hot, nothing could put a damper on their wedding day!
Their day started off with Rachael getting into her gown with her mom and her mother in law to be and doing a first look with her bridesmaids. Her dress and all the details that she chose were gorgeous and I am in love with her style! Those shoes were stunning! Meanwhile, Bobby was having fun with his groomsmen and gave them their own personalized mugs which was a really nice touch. We loved all the details that Bobby rocked as well. The whole wedding party looked fabulous!
Once they finished getting ready, the bride and the groom met up for a first look before heading to their venue. They picked Bollinger Canyon Fountains to share that special moment. It is a cute spot just down the street from their wedding venue. Bobby waited on one side of a bridge with his back turned while Rachael crossed the bridge and called his name. He turned and watched her walk towards him, seeing her for the first time that day. It was a really sweet moment and we loved seeing the two of them interact with each other before their ceremony!
During the ceremony Bobby’s dad composed a special poem for their wedding day and read it to the couple before their vows. Their weddings rings were also passed through the audience to give the audience a chance to impart their love and blessings on the rings. It was touching and such a great way to include guests and family.
Another moment that was especially touching was when Bobby surprised his new wife with a special musical serenade of “Come What May” on a keyboard during the reception. There was not a dry eye in the room after that!
We are so happy for Rachael & Bobby and so excited for them in what’s to come next in their lives together!
