March 30, 2018, was the best day for Rachel and Tom! They proclaimed their love for one another at their wedding, while family and friends watched as the two became one. They had such an elegantly beautiful wedding and we were so honored to play a role in it.
Rachel and her girls wasted no time getting ready at the AirBnB they had rented. Hunter Paige did an amazing job on hair and makeup for the girls as they wore beautiful silk floral robes Rachel had gifted them. She also gave them monogrammed tumblers to hold their special drink for the morning! Aren’t they so cute?!
Rachel said “yes” to this beautiful chiffon lace dress with a stunning illusion neckline that was paired perfectly with these baby blue heels.
These ladies wore matching baby blue chiffon dresses that were perfect for a mild temperature March day.
It was now time for Tom and his groomsmen to get ready. Tom also wanted his men to feel special and appreciated, so he gifted them with personalized cufflinks to wear for the big day. Tom had his own set of cufflinks and a watch to wear that went perfectly with his navy suit. His dad wanted to make sure he looked his best as he stepped in to help with his tie and collar. How sweet!
Tom and his groomsmen are very photogenic and look very handsome in their navy suits! The added touch of the sunglasses hanging out is awesome!
Rachel and Tom chose to have a first look to help ease some nerves before the ceremony, and we are glad they did because the love these two shares is captured so beautifully by Brasspenny Photography. They laughed and cried as they took some time to share letters they had written to one another and will cherish this time together.
The bridesmaids and groomsmen came together and joined Rachel and Tom to get some group pictures. We love their fun spirit they have and how they wanted to add a special touch with the personalized sunglasses!
Rachel and Tom chose the beautiful Belle Meade Plantation to tie the knot. The outside ceremony space was so beautiful that having too much decor would take away from its natural beauty. They decorated the aisle with arrangements of greenery on the end chair and had their unity cross placed to the side at the altar. Check out that urn piece too!
We loved that Rachel wanted both her mom and dad to walk her down the aisle and give her away as Tom waited patiently for his blushing bride! They exchanged rings and vows to one another before putting together their unity cross to display the two becoming one.
They sealed their vows with a kiss and pronounced husband and wife!
These rings, how gorgeous?!
Husband and Wife
Rachel and Tom took some alone time to get photos together before joining their guests for cocktail hour. These photos will be great memories that will last a lifetime and surely will be hung above the fireplace!
They took it inside for the reception where the tables were decorated perfectly with candlelit lanterns and greenery. Their sweetheart table was beautifully situated between the wedding party and was elegantly decorated with candles and greenery with pink accents. A Publix wedding cake decorated with flowers and greenery tasted delicious.
And now for the first time we present to you as husband and wife, Rachel and Tom!
They shared their first dance as husband and wife, cut the cake and drank yummy champagne!
They cut the cake to “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled (also known as the Predators win song) which gets any Preds loving couple pumped up to get their dance on.
It was now time for the sweet father/daughter dance and the fun mother/son dance. Choreographed dances are always fun to watch!
Rachel did her bouquet toss and Tom tossed the garter to the one single man who came onto the floor.
Rachel, Tom, and their guests stayed on the dance floor the entire night before sending the bride and groom off on their honeymoon.
We are so thankful Rachel and Tom let us help plan their wedding day. They are the sweetest couple! We want to recognize the great job of these vendors:
