We started the day at Rachel’s parents home which has beautiful gardens and trees all around the property (a photographer’s dream location). I love detail shots that feature the wedding dress and the first photo with Rachel’s dress in the garden is probably my favorite ever. Scott and his groomsmen were hilarious and were all too eager to cut up for the camera.

Rachel and Scott opted to do a first look which gave us a lot of time to get some great portraits of the two of them and then allowed everyone to have a nice relaxed lunch together prior to the ceremony.  The ceremony and reception were held at Mount Carmel Baptist Church.  There were so many beautiful details (many of them handmade by the family) that made this wedding so much fun to capture. Enjoy these preview photos and join us in wishing Scott and Rachel a joyous life together.
