Rachel + Jared: Navy and Blush Romantic Winter Wedding


Rachel and Jared married on a beautiful March day, and were our first Beth Joy couple of this 2016 wedding season! In front of 200 of their closest friends and family, they spoke their vows at the lovely Whispering Pines Golf Club in Pinckney, Michigan. It was a day filled with so much love, a gorgeous sparkler exit, not to mention the most epic first dance ever! (A choreographed dance with their entire bridal party!) 

From the Bride and Groom: 

"How we met: Rachel looked back and saw a new guy at church and thought to herself, “I want to meet him.. I hope he’s not just an out-of-town friend visiting… does he have a ring?” As Rachel walked a few rows back to introduce herself, she caught Jared’s attention and the same thoughts began to run through his head. They then went out to lunch with a group from church and just so happened to sit right next to each other. As they began talking, there was an obvious growing attraction (to both them and everyone around). And the rest is history. We’re excited to make a life-long commitment to each other in front of God and to enjoy the day with the people we love."

The day was full of so many special touches that showed the deep love between these two souls. We are honored to have been able to capture this joyous celebration, filled with happy tears and lots of laughter - it's truly why we do what we do! 

xoxo, ~Beth
