Had we not been stalking weather.com all week keeping an eye on Saturdays weather, we never would have known by Rachel’s joyfulness when we arrived that the forecast was looming with 90% chance of rain on she and Josh’s wedding day. Rachel was calm and collected and happy – as if the weather made NO difference at all! And it didn’t :) It was obvious that she and Josh were just so thankful to be together with their family and friends surrounding them as they promised forever. No matter what the weather wanted to do!
Rachel and Josh met in middle school and in early high school formed a bond that, even at the young ages of 15 they just knew it was a bond that would be life-long. They soon started dating and after 7 years Josh proposed, and finally March 18th they celebrated their wedding day at the gorgeous Rock Springs Center in Greenville, NC. Rock Springs has the most incredible landscape and the building is simply elegant. I had heard wonderful things about that location so getting to shoot there was an honor!
Jerry and I enjoyed every minute of witnessing the love that this couple has for each other and the love that their family and friends have for them. We are also SO very excited to share that we will be celebrating with this family AGAIN in December when Josh’s sister Bethany marries her Grayson!! It will be so much fun to document such a special time for the Barnes once again :)
We are so happy to announce Mr. & Mrs. Barnes!! And can we give a shout out to the rain that DID actually decide to give us a break right at portrait time!? It was pretty amazing ;-)
Congrats Rachel & Josh!
