Emerson Park Wedding: Luke & Rachel
The rain trickled off of tree leaves and soaked the pavement surrounding the white pillars erecting Emerson Park’s glorious reception venue. Despite it not being the sunny, warm spring day that Rachel and Luke might have imagined for their wedding day, there was something really beautiful about the soft rain that surrounded us. It was a subtle reminder of the beautiful life and sacred promises being made in the presence of family and friends for an amazing couple.
Every wedding I photograph is an honor. Truly. But Rachel and Luke’s wedding was such an incredible honor, because Rachel is the very best friend of a friend of mine. And the friend is ALSO a photographer, which made it extra intimidating but all the more a privilege. It meant so much to be entrusted with such a special lady’s wedding day.
Rachel is Luke’s safety, and Luke is Rachel’s favorite person. Together, these two have a confidence and vivacity that most couples only wish to obtain. Oh, and can I tell you that Luke MADE all his groomsmen and his bow-ties! Crazy, right?!
This classic, vintage wedding is not ‘just’ gorgeous and full of love and a full of a groom who sews his own bow-ties. In addition to all this goodness, it was F-U-N, friends. Really, really a fun. Everyone there seemed like a dance extraordinaire. And Rachel’s brother, Sam, is well-known for his incredible voice, which we were are able to witness, when Sam joined the live band for some of his favorite tunes. The expressions on the guests’ faces? Priceless!
This wedding is one for the books, folks. You definitely want to cozy up and check it out this lovely day!
I am beyond grateful to have been even a small part of this couple’s wedding day story. Congratulations, Luke & Rachel!
