What a fabulous way to end our 2020 Wedding Season!  This year as been unique, to say the least!  So, to show up to Rachel & John’s wedding, with the sun shining brightly and love all around, it was a dream come true!  Plus, we’ve been dying to capture a Willow Creek Winery Wedding, and so happy theirs was our first! Here’s a glimpse into the beginning of their happily ever after!

Timeless, Beautiful Details for a Classic Bride

As soon as I saw Rachel’s dress, I did a little happy dance!  Free Love Bridal carries some of the most beautiful dresses I’ve ever seen!  Add in her gorgeous bouquet from A Garden Party, the invitation and some small details, and it was perfect!

Rachel Getting Ready in The Rose Room at Willow Creek Winery

Walking into warmth and laughter on the morning of a wedding is always a great sign!  Even better is when they all sat in a circle and sang Girl Scout songs! SO much fun!

A First Look with Rachel & her Father

Rachel’s dad thinks that “little hands” are funny!  So, of course Rachel had to get some for her first look with her dad!  Plus, it broke the tension a little bit so that no one would cry!

John Getting Ready at The La Mer Beachfront Resort

John and his best friends all love to hunt!  So, they started out their day having fun on the beach in their hunting gear!  Then, they went back to the La Mer Resort to get ready for the day ahead!

The Story of Rachel & John

Rachel & John first met each other in Atlantic City.  She was having a girls night with one of her friends, when her friend noticed her cousin hanging out with a bachelor party.  They joined the party and John and Rachel met and danced that night!  The next day John reached out to her friend for Rachel’s number!  Their first date was actually at a wedding! (The wedding from the Bachelor party!)  John’s date got sick and bailed, so he asked Rachel!  They’ve been together ever since!

In April of 2019, John and Rachel went to the Poconos for the weekend for his birthday.  Little did she know what he had planned!  He had set up a gorgeous breakfast by the fireplace one morning at their AirBnB and asked her to marry him!

A First Look under the Willow Tree at Willow Creek Winery

Rachel knew she wanted John to see her for the first time underneath a Willow tree at the winery.  It was the most perfect spot, and John’s reaction was everything!
