I have been absolutely drooling over these photos for the past two weeks and am so excited to start showing them off. And because I want to share lots and lots of these beautiful images, Rachel and Phillip’s wedding will be in a series of blog post.

So here is part 1…the preparation!

I adore getting ready shots… the details, the love and support from the family and friends, the fashion…oh the fashion! Rachel’s dress was gorgeous! And I love all the makeup and hair styling, the perfection of it all.

I love this image from the second story bridal suite…it was such a lovely window seat.

Seriously, isn’t that lace awesome. And I love how the light shines through it.

Phillip got some pre-wedding pampering. A great fresh haircut and styling! What a great idea…I am totally suggesting this some of my couples getting married this year. I mean, if you have your stylist there on site, why not send them over to the grooms room for a little trim.

This is one of my absolute favorite shots (one of the bride and groom shots coming later is tied with this one!). But these guys were so awesome and patient and we perfected this shot, not a single complaint. Honestly, I have never met such a wonderful group of guys, they were the best. A big thanks to them all! A bunch of handsome men…watch out GQ! Boom!
