Rachel + Eric had a gorgeous summer wedding along the water at the Tide's Inn in Irvington, Virginia. They opted to do a first look before their ceremony, and it was one of the sweetest moments of the day. You could see their nerves melt away the moment they saw each other. They hugged, chatted, and spent a few moment alone together before we headed down towards the water and began snapping photos.
Rachel looked stunning. Her bridal look was classic, sleek, and flawless. The groomsmen wore tailored navy suits complimented by the light peach bridesmaid dresses. I love that she decided to go bold with her bouquets by incorporating shades of blue and hot pink.
Their ceremony was held in Rachel's family's church which made it even more emotional. Everyone headed back to the Tide's Inn to party the night away. Congrats to Rachel + Eric!
