There is trendiness exuding from this garden wedding and we are so excited to share it! Just wait till you see why! The florals were a simple white with a pop of soft coral tones. The outdoor location was natural and stunning. And the bride, constantly glowing and grinning, wore an elegantly simple white gown. And our favorite part... the light green floral bridesmaid dresses!! Since the decor, venue, and florals were kept to a relaxed minimum style, the patterned dresses were the perfect pop of trendy! It truly pulled together all the details of the day.

Okay, onto their special day.. Rachel + Erik's wedding morning began rainy and stormy before clearing up right in time for photos. The sun is gorgeous and gives the photos a light + airy feel. Beautiful work, Claire Murray Photography! Let's see more:
A close up of her stunningly simple gown that donned a belt. Gorgeous touch!
Love is brewing... love that!
Soft colors yet bold pattern. We are obsessed and intrigued. Can you tell?!
But we can't completely let the women steal the show, the men looked pretty dapper, too!
The dresses go great with the gray. Beautiful choice!!
Their photographer, Claire told us that her favorite parts of their wedding day were: "Seeing Erik's face as he saw his bride for the very first time, watching a rainy, stormy morning completely clear up as the sun came out just in time for photos, seeing Rachel cry tears of utter joy as she walked down the isle and watching these two make an effort to thank, hug and show their gratitude for every wedding guest."
Ephesians 5:31 is a beautiful bible verse. If you're looking scripture for your wedding, here are 10 non-cliche verses.
Claire continued writing: "As a photographer, you dream about the amazing clients that you will get to work with and these two were kind, humble, encouraging and full of gratitude their entire day. Rachel + Erik, thank you for allowing me to celebrate with you, cry happy tears as you said "I do!" and photograph your best day ever! Your relationship radiates hope and joy, and you are an encouragement to all."
Just when you thought the day couldn't get even more stunning... this cake made its classy debut! Absolute perfection. Congratulations, you two!
