Some couples you meet and instantly see why they are together. You see the joy in their eyes and that life together is so much better for them. Rachel and Tom are definitely this couple. I swear they both light up when they see each other and probably the biggest challenge of the wedding day was to get an image of them together when they WEREN’T laughing!
The entire day was such a joy to photograph– it was a day filled with family, friends and laughter! (Yes, that sounds like a Hallmark commercial, but I swear its how the day felt!) Hotel Duval was the perfect setting for their art deco themed wedding and I ADORE the use of purple, rose gold and books into their table decor.
I will say, it may possibly be the only wedding I have ever photographed that had a 3 minute high-five hand off of the bride, extensive Friends quotes, and lobster hats as part of the ceremony. The wedding was as unique as Rachel and Tom and it is definitely a wedding I will never forget!
