The Solis Wedding was very special to me. Rachel and I have been friends for years now. We went to elementary school together and her mom was even my teacher the first year she started teaching at River Valley Christian. Rachel and I were quick friends and she was always one of the sweetest people I had ever met. Years have gone by since then and she still is such an amazing sweet woman.
When she asked Shane and I to document her wedding, I was thrilled. I knew she would be the perfect bride without the zilla :). The day of she was completely stress free. She was enjoying the day and cracking jokes and just ready to marry the love of her life. Alex was the same way. There's something that you feel when you see true love, and they have it. I didn't have to ask them to smile or laugh, because they couldn't stop doing those things when they were around each other anyway. Which made my job a lot easier!
Their wedding was at the beautiful Central Christian Church, which is actually the church I grew up in, where I was first baptized, where we dedicated my little sister, and unfortunately where my dad's funeral was. I have a lot of history in this church, and it was very special to attach such a lovely memory with it again. Rachel and Alex did something during their ceremony that I thought was so cool. They, planted a tree to show their love and to watch it grow and get stronger through the years. The cool thing about the church, was that they had a beautiful prayer garden in the middle of the building, there we saw a beautiful tree which coincidentally was the same tree they planted during their ceremony. It was such a special thing to have, and to be able to give that symbol to them with their photos.
When I heard the reception was at Adelaide Hall, I was very excited. There are amazingly beautiful windows surrounding the building, and a lot of space there. I knew that Rachel and Alex were a fun couple, but I was very pleased to see how much fun they had at their reception.
Overall, this wedding was absolutely stunning. The love they have for one other and the tacos they had at their reception, made this wedding one of our favorites! Congratulations Rachel and Alex, so glad you trusted us with your special day.

See you soon,
