Luke and Rachel’s story and togetherness is so lovely, genuine, and meant to be. It’s been one of those weddings where I knew going into it I would be crying the day of because of how sweet they are. The letters they wrote to one another sum up just how romantic their love is, and might make you shed some tears even if you’ve never met them in your life! A line from Luke’s letter to give you insight into these two: “And now I know I loved you long before I said the word, before I knew what it meant, and long after language stopped being enough to express my feelings for you. For our love beyond love. And when I realized that, I realized that Rachel, you truly are my soulmate.”
They met the winter of 2011 at an ugly-sweater Christmas party. Both of their friends begged them to go with them, eventually they agreed. When arriving to the party, Luke asked a friend to introduce him to people there. When Luke looked around the room as to who he wanted to meet, his eyes landed on Rachel, pointed her out and said “I want to meet her“. Sounds to me a lot like love at first sight 😃 They exchanged numbers that night and had their first date the next night! When you’ve met the one, there’s no time to lose 😉
When I received an email inquiry from Luke, I immediately knew these two were special. He said that he wanted to surprise his fiance with wedding videography for their wedding!! How adorable!! If that wasn’t sweet enough, one week later he told me that his brother actually called him and said, without even knowing Luke was surprising Rachel with videography, that HE wanted to gift them both with wedding videography! What a return in blessing!!!
The day of their wedding was nothing short of pure bliss. There was excitement in the air as we drove up to Bluemont Vineyard. A bright, sunny day with gigantic views of luscious vineyards, orchards, and surrounding mountains. What better place to celebrate two special people as this romantic venue!! There were tears of joy in every special moment of the day – the First Look, ceremony, speeches, even the dances!
We loved being a part of their sweet day and were honored to capture all of the memories made that day!
