Be prepared for photo overload! I had such a hard time narrowing down my favorite photos from Rachel & Tom’s wedding. Theirs is #2 of my 3 long lost blog posts from last year that were somehow never published.
They were married at a beautiful church in Conroe and had their reception at April Sound Country Club. You may recognize Rachel from her bridal portraits I posted on my blog. In case you missed it, go check them out here.
Rachel has such fabulous taste! Her decor was vibrant shade of purple, pink, and blue and she wasn’t afraid to mix in some unique details such as these sparkly butterflies that were in all the bouquets. In memory of her and Tom’s family members that had passed away, small photos of each of them were hung from the pew bouquets on the pews near the from of the church where they would have sat.
The details on her dress were so unique… and I’ve seen a lot of wedding dresses! The ruffly volume at the bottom is actually individual peony type chiffon and satin flowers with crystal details in the center. So cool!
Rachel was given this ring by her mother just before her wedding. It had belonged to her grandmother who had recently passed away. So she got two blinging rings that day!
True to her one-of-a-kind style, Rachel showed a little flash of bright purple eyeshadow when she blinked and finished it off with some adorable purple sparkley heeled peep toe shoes.
Her father carried on a tradition of including a lucky penny in your shoe and was so sweet to get down on his knees to put it into his daughters shoe before he walked her down the aisle.
The reception, being just as one-of-a-kind as the couple, was decorated in Rachel’s signature bright colors but also included her and Tom’s love of reading. Rather than a traditional cake, Tom opted for some tasty little chocolate covered cake balls that were placed in “books”.
The father-daughter dance was so sweet. There wasn’t a dry eye in the whole place!
After a delicious meal and… well… more than a few drinks.. the party really got started! Everyone was welcome to grabbing glow sticks and hitting the dance floor.
Then, of course, the glow sticks had to be connected together so that guests could try their coordination at jumping “glow stick rope” on the dance floor. It was a heck of a party to say the least!
