You guys…we seriously don’t even know what to type right now! Saturday was SUCH a whirlwind of fun, amazing florals, tears, presents, and happy faces! When we arrived at the Park Inn (and finally knocked on the right hotel room door…lololol), we were greeted with happiness, hugs, and even a present! That’s right! They got US a present! We couldn’t even believe it. Rachel knows that us and our kids like to go on outdoor adventures with our kids so they got us a chair/cooler/backpack combo. How cool is that??? And they wrote the sweetest note that made Stephanie cry! Probably a record for the earliest in a wedding day she shed tears. Probably. 😉 The note talked about how much we all love Harry Potter and how they were so happy they booked with us and they can’t wait to stay friends…yeah. We were big puddles.
Rachel and Andy may have looked stunning, but we’re pretty sure Rachel’s daughter Makayla stole the show! She was so excited about her dress! She picked it up and showed us all the details on it and once she had it on, she just spun and spun and couldn’t wait to come out and show her Mommy! Oh, it was so precious! The way she loves her mom is amazing. But the way she loves Andy, her new step-dad? Well, we think that’s even more amazing. 🙂 You can tell that she just adores him, and that Andy absolutely adores her back. Even when he was talking about her, he just smiles and talks about how great she is.
When Rachel & Andy had their first look, it was the BIGGEST we saw Andy smile all day! They hugged and kissed, and we had so much fun exploring the Park Inn with them for amazing portrait locations! The bridal party was so fun and helpful and were a blast to hang out with all afternoon! The ceremony was SO touching, and really awesome! Especially when everyone shouted “Mazel Tov!” when Andy stepped on the glass! And the reception was gorgeously decorated and so much fun. Especially when everyone danced The Hora and lifted Rachel and Andy up in the air!
Mazel Tov you two! Have so much fun on your honeymoon, and we can’t wait to have all THREE of you over sometime soon!
