Last Thursday, Rachel & Mervin added another incredible date to their love story… their wedding date. The beautiful bride is my cousin, meaning I’ve known her for her entire life, and watching her get married to her high school sweetheart was so wonderful. These two really have been able to grow up together, and Mack and I were both so honored to be asked to capture the journey for them. Especially because Rachel made it very clear that they weren’t hiring us because we’re family… it was because they love our work. That meant the WORLD to us!
Old Stone Hall was a perfect venue for this summer wedding, and a big blue sky with just the right amount of breeze was a gorgeous backdrop. And, if I do say so myself, this bride & groom had the cutest flowergirl and usher of all time. 😉 (hint, our kids).
It’s a special kind of pressure to know you’ve got family chomping at the bit to see wedding pictures, so I’ll just cut to the good part… check out some of our favorite images of the day!
Ahhhh!! This moment made me all weepy. It gets REAL when you put that dress on!
Yep, no shame… definitely the cutest flower girl EVER.
Longtime McG followers (and fans of great music) will recognize Sam Behymer in this next photo. She sang Ed Sheeran’s “Tenerife Sea” during the candle lighting, and it was sublime.
And just like that, Mr. & Mrs. Medina!
Can you spy the oldest McG kid there on the right side? Such a stud.
These chandeliers were hung specifically for this wedding… hats off to my uncle for engineering this bit of “extra”, because it was totally gorgeous!
We each took quick breaks to dance with our kids, and I’m so glad I caught this shot of Mack spinning Dorothy around the floor. Family weddings can be fun even if we’re working!
Rachel & Mervin, we’re so proud of you both. We know you’ve still got so much adventure ahead of you, and we can’t wait to watch it happen. We love you… and congratulations! 🙂
