Thomas and Rachel are really good friends of my boyfriend Greg. I've come to adore them as well, so I was really excited to celebrate their wedding with them, especially knowing how good Rachel is at loving the best kinds of pretty things.
I wasn't a main photographer, just a guest, but I couldn't help taking a million photos anyway.
In the past few months that I've known Rachel and Thomas, I've come to really admire their relationship. They're genuine, real people who have created a really beautiful family together and I've felt honored to get to share a small chunk of life with them.
Possibly an even stronger relationship though, is the one between all the boys. I've never seen anything like this in my life, and I couldn't even begin to compete with the love Greg has for all these bro's. They're also very rugged and tough and manly (I feel like I should throw that in there so he doesn't beat me up), but I really appreciate the loyalty they have for one another.
One of the highlights of this wedding for me was watching Ashtyn at the end of the night, sitting on the floor, shoveling cheese and crackers into her mouth from a giant plate she'd piled high with snacks. Fortunately, she's one of those very annoying people that looks pretty even when she's being a cheese monster.
By the end of the night my feet were killing me, I had burned the edges of my coat on one of the space heaters (Greg smelled it just before it burst into flames), and everyone had eaten all the snacks, but overall it was a really fun night and I'm so glad I got to be a part of it.
