Rachel and Andrew were married on a cold, December day at St. Bernard Church and the LeMont Restaurant. They were wonderful to work with all day, and obviously came from big, loving families. Their ceremony was extra-special because Rachel’s older brother was the officiating priest, and each portion of their vow to each other held loving, unifying weight. They were able to hold hands and say a prayer together before the ceremony, and after the ceremony they were able to hold each other and stay warm for photos!
They chose to have their wedding around Christmas, since it’s their favorite holiday and they wanted their wedding to reflect the warmth and joy of the season – I LOVE that! (Christmas is my favorite holiday, too. It’s no surprise my daughter’s name is Joy). In addition, Christmas is a time when families come together, and creating their own new family at that time of the year was significant.
Thank you, Rachel and Andrew, for having me with you on your wedding day! It was a true pleasure!
