Lookout Mountain Wine + Whiskey Inspired Wedding // Rashel & Michael

“I say Georgia, Georgia. A song of you, comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines.” // Ray Charles

Rashel and Michael’s wedding day in October 2015 at a family farm and The Grandview amongst beautiful Lookout Mountain in Georgia was a day that could be stopped by nothing. It was a day filled with love, friends, family, wine, whiskey, dancing, and laughter. It was also a day that started with rain and had a few bumps along the way. But at the end of the day these two amazing people committed themselves to one another in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at the base of Lookout Mountain and then danced the night away at a gorgeous patio reception in clouds. I am absolutely thrilled to be sharing these photos with you guys. This was definitely a wedding I will never forget and I am so grateful to Rashel and Michael that they asked me to join them on their most special day.

Rashel and Michael met in 2007 through mutual friends during Purdue University’s freshman orientation program. Although they just started as friends the two of them eventually developed a connection that neither of them could deny. (Even though they tried for awhile!) In November 2008 they decided to make it official and they’ve been inseparable since. Fast forward to Christmas of 2013 when Michael insisted they take a trip to Chicago for the holidays. While it wasn’t unusual Rashel, being Rashel, tried to resist saying they needed to focus on others for the holidays. Michael booked the hotel anyways and they made the trip. While dining in the same restaurant they had dined in five years before Michael presented her with a box and under layers of tissue paper there was an iPad. Filled with pictures and text of friends and family the final picture was of their sweet pup Cinna with a sign asking her Mommy to marry Daddy. Obviously, Rashel said “yes” and now we’re here. In beautiful Georgia watching the two of them tie the knot. Like I said, it’s a day for the history books.

Intimate & Rustic DIY Hill Country Texas Wedding // Andrea & Andy

“You've got that kind of look in your eyes, as if no one knows anything but us...” // Ed Sheeran

Let me just tell you guys, I am so ridiculously excited to share this wedding with you! What a way to kick off my wedding season with a beautiful outdoor wedding at The Wildflower Barn in Driftwood, TX! I’m telling you guys, this intimate wedding was full of so much love and fun that I don’t even know where to start with this blog post! I’m going to preface this that it may be a long post. I just walked away with so many images that I loved it was hard to pare down!

Let’s start off with their story shall we? Andrea + Andy have been together for quite a long time! In fact they’ve known each other for 10 years! They met way back in sophomore year of high school in Spanish class at Noblesville High School. It was in this class Andy had decided he enjoyed sleeping more than learning Spanish. Since they were seated next to each other Andy would copy off of Andrea a lot and frequently ask for help. Once the teacher caught on to them they figured FOR SURE they would be separated or failed. Neither happened. Instead, the teacher decided to have them continue to sit next to each other for the rest of the year. Needless to say they were dating before the end of the school year. They separated for awhile when Andrea moving to Colorado for three years and then a lot of other things got in their way. But they managed to find their way back to each other for Andy to propose to Andrea on the River Walk on Marriage Island in San Antonio. Surrounded by family and even a tour boat cheering them on Andrea said “yes” that day on the little island said to bring long and loving marriages for those who are wed or engaged there.

I can’t see into the future (although that would be a cool talent to have) but from spending the time I spent with Andrea + Andy last week I can tell you superstition or not I believe they will have a long and loving marriage. They work well with each other to solve problems and take care of each other. It’s obvious they care deeply for each other and their personalities mesh so well. They are amazing people and their wedding was equally amazing. I’m so excited to share with you their pink and pewter, blue bonnet surrounded, laughter filled, fun having, DIY, rustic, wedding amazingness. I hope you’re ready because the cuteness starts now!
