Rachael & Michael (A Chic Rustic Wedding at Rivercrest Farm in Dover, Ohio)

From the Bride: "I envision my wedding day as a big party. I want all my guests to enjoy themselves! Also, Michael and I's wedding was a long time coming. We've known each other for 8 years and met at Cedarville. For some reason, nothing ever happened between us until December 2013, but we both agree that God has perfect timing (and a unique sense of humor :). The numbers on the tables are significant to Michael and I's relationship as our whole relationship has been long distance. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with my best friend!"

It was a stunning October day - full of sunshine, a light breeze and 70 degrees! Rivercrest Farm was the perfect backdrop for the start of Rachael & Michael's future together. We had a full hour for bride and groom portraits after the first look, and were able to explore the stunning property, and at the end of the night the owners of the Farm took us to several hilltops to capture the perfect sunset pictures. But more than that, it was an honor to be present at such a beautiful ceremony - to see the way that God worked to bring these two together, and the joy that they have when they are with each other was an awesome thing. Thank you both for inviting me into this special day, and I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from your love story! 

Many thanks to the awesome vendor team!
