Almost 4 years ago, Rachael and Bob met on OK Cupid. When telling me their story, I jokingly asked both of them if they were afraid of being murdered when they first met. Rachael said no while Bob looked thoughtful for a moment and then answered “Maybe”. Such a funny guy!
Their first date was over a casual dinner at TGI Fridays and then they went to see Wreck It Ralph. (One of my most favorite movies!) 2 years later, Bob proposed on Rachael’s graduation day. Bob stated, “As soon as the ceremony was over, I handed her the ring and said ‘I have something for you to wear to dinner’.” Rachael said she was confused at first and everyone was surprised but of course she said yes.
They set the date for May 21, 2016.
On the morning of May 21, 2016. Rachael and her bridesmaids Kendra, Allison, Jacki and Erin began getting ready at The Spa At Traditions in Johnson City, NY. The women at the spa who did their hair and makeup did an amazing job!
I love the sass! Traditions at the Glen provided a gorgeous back drop for their getting ready pictures as well as detail shots.
I love these florals by C & A Event Planning LLC – based out of Binghamton, NY.
While the girls were getting ready to head to the church (Our Lady of Good Council in Endicott, NY) the guys were waiting patiently for the ceremony to begin.
The Ceremony took place at Our Lady of Good Council in Endicott, NY. I always love a good Catholic ceremony. Everything went smoothly and by 2:30 in the afternoon, Rachael and Bob were officially husband and wife!
Soon afterwards, we ventured back to Traditions at the Glen in Johnson City where I took one of the most terrifying golf cart rides of my life. I’m going to be honest here, they’re almost always terrifying. We captured some amazing shots!!! These are some of my very favorite!
By the time we were finished taking pictures, we were all soaked! It was time to make our way back to the reception where Traditions did a fantastic job at making the ballroom look beautiful. The reception was a blast and everyone had a wonderful time.
This was the perfect wedding to kick off my wedding season in 2016.
Rachael + Bob – You are both amazing and wonderful and fantastic and we loved being able to capture your wedding day. Xo!
