On an unusually cold Saturday morning in January Rachel and Ed said "I do" happily surrounded by friends and family. They chose to see each other before the wedding and it was such a beautiful moment that I was so happy to be present to capture. Although it is becoming much more common for brides and grooms to have a "first look" before their ceremony some still feel that it will ruin the moment of seeing the bride come down the aisle. Instead of thinking of it that way I would have couples think of it as a chance to have that moment privately (aside from your photographer). Rachel and Ed were able to hug and talk and after I snapped a few photos, have a moment to themselves. It was truly beautiful. During the ceremony, the bride had a big surprise for everyone. She rode to the ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage! The looks on the faces of her guests were amazing. I hope that this great couple is always as in love as they were on their special day!
