Tyler and Rachael shared their first date over an ice cream cone at Cold Stone Creamery followed by a romantic evening watching the sunset at Sandiagos. The two hit it off and became instantly inseparable. Down the road the couple took a vacation together to San Antonio where they walked hand in hand as the sun set to a small island on the riverwalk called marriage island. Here Tyler got down on one knee and asked Rachael to spend the rest of her life with him on the heart shaped cobblestone. Ill give you a hint...she said yes!
Rachael and Tyler planned an elegant wedding at the Sandia Resort and Casino. They chose this venue because it has the best view of our beautiful mountains in town (and the biggest ballroom to host all their amazing friends and family!) It is very obvious this couple is very loved. Rachael's did a first look with her dad who couldn't hold back tears when he first saw his daughter, as she held a beautiful bouquet in her hands full of burgundy orchids and crysanthamums. Her dress had a stunning illusion back that had all the guests oohing and ahhing and Tyler looked equally as dapper in his Michael Kors tux. The bridal party wore complimenting colors of quartz and wine as they all stood in front of the beautiful fountains on the rotunda lawn as the couple said I do.
At the reception the dance floor was never empty as guests partied the night away sipping champagne and eating yummy cake.
We wish the newlyweds the very best and were so honored to work with such a fun loving couple.
