A Blessed Union: Nick & Rachael’s Gorgeous Estate Wedding

Aug 13, 2017 | Fairytales

Leigh Fabozzi of Leigh Elizabeth Photography captured many beautiful moments and details during Nick and Rachael’s wedding at the stately Pinnacle Golf Club. Everything from the colors, attire, decor…every single detail was absolutely stunning. We had a hard time choosing which photos from this gorgeous gallery to feature because each one literally took our breath away. Here is just a sampling of our favorites, and the many lovely personal touches that were laden throughout this celebration of love, faith, and family.

What we love:
*Rachael’s contagious smile  – we knew immediately why Nick fell in love with her!
*The pretty vintage vow books and how Nick and Rachael read each other’s vows in a private moment during the first look
*The fun confetti that was thrown as the couple walked down the aisle after the ceremony
*The gorgeous, jaw-dropping bouquets
*The cleverly designed “guestbook” that was actually a perpetual calendar wherein guests “sign” next to their birthdates, a clever way to create a keepsake, and have a book of birthday reminders all in one

Our Editor’s favorite photo: The beautiful moment when Rachael’s dad shed a few tears before handing her to Nick at the altar. We all cried…yes, we really did.

“I was not stressed or anxious like I’ve heard many brides are on their wedding day; instead, I felt an overwhelming peace in my heart because I knew not only how much Nick and I love each other, but how much more our Heavenly Father loves us both.” – Rachael

“I will never forget the moment I opened my eyes, turned towards our guests, and saw the beaming faces of our friends and family. I would recommend all brides take some time before walking down the aisle to look into the crowd allow yourself to be overwhelmed by how many people in the world love you so dearly.” – Rachael
