I remember when I skyped with Rachael + Mike last year to plan their wedding celebration. Sometimes skype meetings are short, and sometimes – like with these two – we chatted over the interwebs for an hour about travel, adventure, them falling in love while in marching band together, and their epic elopement to Alaska last year. I felt like I had known them for years! Tim and I were so honored to capture their intimate 1 year-later-wedding day at the always beautiful Terrain at Styers. There may have been a little (okay, a LOT) of rain on their wedding day, but the skies magically held open with thunder and lightning overhead until the kiss – then the skies opened! Perfect timing. We even got a beautiful little golden hour moment later in the evening, and they finished off the night with a fun sparkler exit. We loved being a part of their day and know the future holds such good things for this creative, talented and incredibly sweet couple.
