Joe and Rachael's summer wedding makes me wish for warmer weather on this cold December morning. These love birds said their "I Dos" at the Summit of Peace Lutheran Church in Brighton then we all headed over to The Arvada Center for their beautiful reception.
I love getting to know my couples and finding out how they met. These two have known each other since high school and met at Hyland Hills golf course in Westminster in 2007. They started dating in 2012. Their favorite thing to do together is, of course, golf! Only seems fitting! They also enjoy hiking together and some of their favorite spots are Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.
Rachael's favorite moment as a couple was when Joe came to visit her while she was in college in Pennsylvania. He flew out to a couple of times to visit and they had a ton of fun being tourists. They went to Philadelphia to see Independence Hall, the art museum and the Liberty Bell and we also went to Washington D.C. which is one of Rachael's favorite places. Joe had never been to the east coast so he loved seeing all of the monuments and museums in D.C. They also made a stop at Ocean City, NJ because Joe had never seen the ocean!
I loved being part of their big day and I am excited to show everyone some of my favorite moments, starting with some of the details and ceremony location....
Rachael did a first look with her dad and it was amazing! He is just so happy!
And of course we had to have some fun with Groom and his Groomsmen!
As everyone headed over to the reception, the happy couple and I stayed behind. We had a great time during their portraits!
Then we headed off to the party! The couple was greeted with smiles and cheers!
The decor, cake and lighting was gorgeous!
Everyone mingled before the toasts and dancing began. Everyone had such a great time and danced the night away!
The couple plans on taking a belated honeymoon to Germany, Austria, and maybe Iceland this spring and they hope to do more traveling in the future. They love travelling and both would love to go to Alaska and Utah and see all of the national parks there as well as Yellowstone and some of the great places right here in Colorado. They will probably be getting a dog soon too. Rachael is obsessed with dogs and has always had them growing up so they would like to make that addition soon. They are set on a golden retriever puppy (because who can resist their adorableness)!
Congratulations to this amazing couple!!
