Is there anything sweeter than a couple so in love that they will marry each other no matter the circumstances? Rachel and Franco had their share of heartache when Covid-19 disrupted their plans for a large wedding at Hamilton Farm. However, it would not stop them from changing their plans to get married!
Rachel and Franco simply took what they were given, their love for one another, and a supportive family. They pulled together half of their family, since Franco’s family couldn’t travel, and declared their love and commitment to one another in this sweet backyard wedding, on their intended wedding day.
I am so glad they did! It was beautiful. The family who couldn’t make it were transported from one location to the next on the iPad so they could be part of every moment.
Rachel wore what was supposed to be her bridal shower dress and Blue Jasmine whipped up a stunning bouquet that pulled it all together! Be sure to pay close attention to Rachel’s amazing shoes! There are perks to changing up tradition. Normally I can’t even see the bride’s shoes while they’re on! She certainly made every detail count!
The best part is that we get to do this again next year. It will be different, it will be a huge celebration, and we can’t wait to see Rachel and Franco surrounded by ALL of their loved ones to celebrate their lifelong devotion to one another!
Rachel and Franco, thank you so much for inviting us into all of these major moments in your life! We can’t wait to continue the celebration! Thank you, Barb Wentzel for your amazing talent!
