These two were the happiest people EVER to be married to one another. We really have never seen people so excited about getting married… and usually people are really excited. However, we’ve worked with Rachel and Matt before and every time we’ve met them under any circumstance they have been excited about pretty much everything… so maybe they’re just happy, excitable people. Either way you slice it, they still make our job very enjoyable since they’re so laid back and happy and we’ve loved working with them!
Their ceremony took place at their church where we had to reschedule some things last minute in order to take their photos riiiiight before a giant rainstorm came into town and stayed there the rest of the day. :( Thankfully we had some wiggle room in the timeline and got the photos out of the way before the rain came! Their reception included a giant, life-size game of Jenga placed on a stage above the dance floor and entertained people thoroughly throughout the evening. No one was injured despite giant Jenga blocks falling left and right, so we think that’s a win (although this did inspire Geoff to make Carolyn play Jenga the next evening and we were surprisingly good at it so it got really tall, fell loudly on our plastic coffee table, and scared our sleeping cat half to death). They had a monkey and a bluejay cake topper, some impromptu games of cat’s cradle, a glow stick exit, and Carolyn got to take home 4 succulents from the buffet table and was very excited. We cannot thank or congratulate Rachel and Matt enough on their awesome wedding and marriage!
