Charlottesville Wedding, Pippin Hill Wedding

    Freaking out a bit here.
    Okay first, having a floral workshop for the brides to make their own bouquets is literally the BEST IDEA AND I’M LITERALLY OBSESSED. Recommending this to every bride ever.
    Second, the DMB love runs deep with my husband (ever since he bought their first record at age 11), and he got me on board, so I’m swooning over the playlist. Our first dance was to You & Me. Their processional was to #41?! One of my most favorite songs, ever. SO SO GOOD.

      RIGHT!? I’m not gonna lie it was definitely a ton of work BUT it was so much fun and so great to see each persons individual style shine through!! I second the DMB fandom, I basically cried through this entire wedding because it was like watching a beautiful romantic movie with the perfect soundtrack unfold before my eyes!!

    rachel i’m obsessed with how much you click with your clients. you’re just the best.

    also, we ALLL know that i need to know where to get those nacho socks…let’s be real, i actually need them. like for real.

    i also really dig that this wedding so was so free, like how the bridesmaids all had their own style going on. such a fan! i can’t wait to one day force you to help with my wedding like if that ever happens 🙂 xx

    • Rachel Rice says:

      hahaha I think I just manage to find the most KICK ASS clients out there somehow, it truly is magic. The universe is rewarding me for something I guess!!

      yeah girl, those nacho socks are for real the coolest. I’ll ask Derek where he got them! Fun socks are totally my jam!

      YES YES YES and I think you mean "WHEN" not "IF" <3

    This is so cute! I’m always a fan of couples incorporating things that are important to them into their wedding day besides the pinterest worthy shots and to be honest having DMB and Blenheim is so special! I mean besides the fact that Blenheim is amazingly gorgeous! Shannon and Derek look so happy and at ease throughout their day and I think that comes from a solid vision and a wedding planner who kicks ass!

    • Rachel Rice says:

      Agreed! I loved how special this wedding was. It truly was one of the warmest, most sentimental events I’ve ever done and it holds a special place in my heart!

    All I can say is LOL at the nacho socks!! so funny. I love their colorful and whimsical, unique style! Her hair/dress combo – A+ and I loved that all the girls wore different dresses. And you’re right – she’s effortlessly beautiful!! Also diggin’ the groom style! Also that gorgeous tree that they had their ceremony under – heart eyes!
