Real {Tennessee} Wedding: Raquel & Christopher
Hi Guys....it's "Throwback Thursday" at the cafe.....we're headed back down memory lane with with the beautiful wedding story of Raquel & Christopher...here's all the details.....xoxoxo

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm so excited to feature their gorgeous wedding....when I received the images I had to do my "happy dance"....such lovely details and their style is impeccable...capturing all the beauty on their special day is my new friend Lyle of Scrole Vision Photography.....and second shooting with Lyle, Colville Heskey....their work is STUNNING!!!...I was introduced to Scrole Vision by one of my beautiful cafe readers and I'm so happy that she made the connection...I had the opportunity to chat with Lyle and he is one of the nicest and most humble guys on the planet!  It's truly a pleasure to share their work with you today...... now let's check out Raquel & Christopher's beautiful wedding day....Enjoy!! 


Raquel shares a little info with us...."My husband and I met while studying at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. It did not take long to know he was "the one." He proposed to me on our one year anniversary, and I was a bucket of joyful tears! We got married on March 6, 2011, and I cried lots of happy tears on that day as well. My favorite part of the wedding-planning process was creating D-I-Y projects that brought me closer to my mother, grandmother, and friends. We made flower bouquets, table centerpieces, and guestbook pages. My mom even made the broom that we jumped! Chris' favorite part of the wedding day was seeing me for the first time in my wedding dress (which I had a blast wearing!).

My advice for any bride-to-be is: "get prepared to be flexible!" On our wedding day, we planned to have an outdoor ceremony and a courtyard reception with a flower girl from Hawaii (amongst other things). We ended up with record-breaking cold temperatures and a flower girl from Kentucky (because our sweet little niece got sick). Nonetheless, the festivities were just as meaningful. It is important to remember what the day is all about - the unconditional love shared between bride and groom."




I LOVE this image of Raquel's grandmother....beyond sweet!!







Raquel is so beautiful...truly a gorgeous bride!







The ladies are all so beautiful...and what a fun image with the shoes all in a row!
