Luke & Rachel | San Diego Wedding Photography

She makes him a better man.  They bring out the best in one another.  And if they didn’t have each other, they wouldn’t be complete.

As I listened to the speeches towards the end of this wedding day, this theme nearly brought me to tears as I listened to several people describe how the best version of themselves was visible when Rachel and Luke were together.  Isn’t that how it should be?

Everything about this wedding was charming.  Even the personalities of Rachel & Luke I found to be enchanting and winsome.  They were kind, beautiful and confident.  Her great care and detail was meticulous, and I was so thrilled to be apart of their celebration.  Here are some of the highlights.



Everything about her invitation I was in love with.

Rachel was the oldest of three girls.  They got these cute rings off Etsy for them all to wear the day of.  I loved this idea!

I love the idea of doing a candy table for guests.  The kids ate this up!

This little guy.  Yeah, the one showing off his moves right during the middle of their first dance, had more personality than any ring bearer I’ve ever encountered.

Rachel & her dad began with a sweet dance, and then broke out in a remix with full choreography.  They had a blast!!  Blog_Parrrott-107
