Blake and Rachael - Just Married
I had THE best time ever at this wedding. It was go go go and I feel like we fit 8 hours into 4.5 somehow, but everything about this day, this couple was so wonderful. They picked out the most beautiful rental home on Big Bear Lake in Apopka, Florida. The groom's dad sang a song and played the guitar that had everyone swooning, the bride's Mom made the coolest speech ever and tied in all their board games into sweetest words, and to top it all off during Blake and Rachael's first dance to "Yellow" by Coldplay she brilliantly incorporated a couple of their first voicemails to each other leaving everyone crying happy tears. Never underestimate the beauty of a backyard wedding and intimate details. It was simple, sweet, beautiful and I can appreciate all the time put into it to make it as spectacular as it was.
Blake and Rachael were high school sweethearts.
Like many high school love stories, things get complicated when there's college and long distance in the equation and the relationship ended. After 4 years apart, the universe brought them back together one night at the movie theater and Blake didn't let her get away this time. Glad you put a ring on it Blake, she's a keeper! Wishing you both a wonderful, long, happy and successful marriage!!!
