Rachel and Fritz have endless love for each other, their family, and their chosen family…those around them share the same true love for them. It was an honor to watch the day unfold thinking that these two are going to have such a strong and wonderful marriage. They are fun, genuine, and sweet people with an incredible foundation from their tight knit group of loved ones. It is clear they will have many happy moments in their marriage as evidenced by their continuous laughter throughout the day. It was also made clear that if they experience hardships it will only strengthen their marriage and love. For instance, rain showers, a wardrobe malfunction, a tight timeline, and the possibility of rain at the time of their outdoor ceremony were all issues these two faced on their wedding day, but this couple took the trials in stride and had the most amazing love and support from their family and friends. When issues arose everyone rallied and it was certain that these two are blessed to have each other and their support system.
In addition to this inspirational love and encouragement from those around them, these two shared one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have witnessed. The judge who married them was perfect for these two as he incorporated their loved ones in almost every aspect of the ceremony. The interactive symbolism, warming of the rings, and tree ceremony were unique and fun for everyone. I overheard a number of guests saying “that was the best ceremony ever.” Those guests also danced and visited the night away at the reception where I heard so many more wonderful things about the couple and their future.
Rachel and Fritz are already enjoying their honeymoon in Greece where they will see their best friend and Maid of Honor get married on Saturday (Yes they love their chosen family enough to plan their honeymoon around attending their friends wedding in another country). Enjoy a glimpse into their day.
Congratulations again Rachel and Fritz! It was an honor and a pleasure to capture your gorgeous wedding and to get a glimpse into your joyful world!
