We knew Rachel and Andrew’s wedding day would be a perfectly put together and wonderfully stylish representation of their love and it was just that! Andrew went to school for and is in a design career working for an architectural firm and Rachel is just over the top cute with her great sense of style. They chose to have their wedding at the totally rad Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, California which was the perfect backdrop for their modern and fun nuptials. I loved the color palette of gold and magenta and the subtle way they incorporated it into their design elements. These guys are just the epitome of style! And to top it all off they are rad people with super warm, genuine hearts and we are honored to call them friends. Here are a few of our favorite photos from their wedding day:
The day was absolutely beautiful even though the 24/7 sunshine they expected to have in Palm Springs was replaced by a cloudy sky and some light sprinkles. It only added to the beauty of the day.
Rachel’s family is so sweet and they have a great love for their family history and traditions. This broach belonged to her grandmother and she wore it in honor of her.Love those gold, sparkly, wedding shoes.Succulent boutonnieres! Rachel and Andrew’s First Look was adorable. Andrew’s reaction is priceless and I’m sure Rachel just loved seeing his face in that moment.The ring attached to Andrew’s boutonniere is another family heirloom. Happiness.Hummingbirds have special meaning for Rachel’s family as well in that they represent her grandmother. Amazingly, this hummingbird arrived during the ceremony and seemed to watch the events unfolding. Their chuppah was simple and awesome with those big white baloons!Their dog, Neville, made a special appearance for some portraits. Wedding rings and a necklace with Rachel’s new initials.Rachel and Andrew decided to take some time to sneak away and be alone together before heading to the reception which we absolutely love. That heart is a totally custom design created by Andrew, which was used in his proposal to Rachel in poster form, and was used throughout their wedding. Their wedding topper was super, and of course Neville was included!
We just love it when couples are this present and experience this much joy on their wedding day!I love this shot of Rachel’s dad and his twin brother celebrating with cigars :)And Tim gets credit for this incredibly rad photo. That boy is talented, I tell ya! ;)
