These two are finally married and I have absolutely LOVED working with them over the past year. I am so excited to finally feature their wedding day on the blog for you all!! Sam and Rachel had their dream wedding day surrounded by their friends and family this summer at Sam’s family church and The Matthews House in Cary.
Sam and Rachel met on a dating app in 2020. After about a year and a half of dating, Sam proposed on vacation with family. They were spending Easter with his family in the mountains, and on their way out to dinner, Sam and Rachel drove out to an overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway where he proposed. It sounded like such a romantic place to get engaged! They love getting to go to the mountains together, so what a special place to start their new adventure.
They had such a special wedding day focused around the people that they love the most in their lives. It was so sweet to see them hugging on friends and family all night long! Their traditional ceremony was held at Sam’s family church, with a cocktail hour and reception just down the street at the Matthews House.
We did some of Rachel and Sam’s engagement photos last summer at the Matthews House. It was so great to be back there with them for their wedding day! After the ceremony, we took family photos in the chapel while a shot summer storm passed through. Summer in NC is always a little wild with the weather, so we always have to stay flexible! Then we were able to head outside for some fun bridal party photos, and portraits of the bride and groom! Then we went over to the Matthews House and took a few more portraits on the lawn, with beautiful flowers in bloom!
After their wedding, Rachel and Sam headed off to GREECE for a dream honeymoon! How fun!! Congratulations to this sweet couple, and wishing them a life full of love and happiness on their new adventure as husband and wife. Seeing how giddy these two were together and how happy they were to be married was just another sweet reminder why I love my job SO much. It was such a special day and I am so grateful to have captured it!
