The day Rachel and Adam were to be married was just the most gorgeous summer day. Traveling to their extravagant Emerald Grande wedding in Destin, Florida we encountered no delays and arrived to emerald green waters with clear blue skies and one gorgeous bride.
I knew it was going to be a wonderful day.
Rachel looked calm and relaxed surrounded by all her close family and friends, including her best friend of 17 years. They spent the day completely zoned in on Rachel and Adam, making sure everything was done and absolutely perfect, which it was.
During the ceremony, gifts were exchanged by different family and friends making each moment just as beautiful as the last. Once of the sweetest moments for everyone was when Adam gave Rachel’s daughter and nephew each personalized gift; Annabelle’s gift was a necklace engraved with the words, “I didn’t give you the gift of life, life gave me the gift of you,” which could have made anyone flood the deck with tears. Adam didn’t stop there, but gave his new nephew a compass, letting him know that he will never be lost and would always have him to help guide him. The ceremony continued with more acts of loves, hugs, and prayers.
Their wedding had so much love and thoughtfulness from everyone, many of who traveled all the way from Texas to be there for them. Adam’s father serenaded them both during dinner (the absolute cutest) following toasts from parents, siblings, and friends who brought the whole darn house down.
With support like that Rachel and Adam you both can get through anything.
Congratulations to your union! We were honored to have been able to be there and witness it all!
