Real Wedding: Rachael and Jeremy's Wedding by Gayle Driver Photography (12)

Today’s real wedding, brought to us by Gayle Driver Photography is full of beautiful, natural elements and thoughtful details. We hope you love it as much as we do! Here’s what Gayle has to say about this wedding:

Rachael & Jeremy are married! Their lovely outdoor wedding took place in the shade under the majestic oak trees on the lawn at Weaver’s Mennonite Church in Harrisonburg, Virginia. The weather was just perfect for an outdoor wedding. Well, OK, it might have been just a bit humid, but I would take a little humidity over rain any day for an outdoor wedding. Rachael and Jeremy decided on a rustic theme for their wedding since the bride and groom both love the out-of-doors.

See more after the cut!

Pinecones, moss , tree stumps, green white and yellow flowers, a bird’s nest, a stone fireplace, potted plants, etc …and wait till you see what the groomsmen boutonnieres were made of! The groomsmen also wore matching camouflage socks. So cute! I love the rich, green, earthy colors that Rachael chose for their special day. During the ceremony Rachael and Jeremy each planted Jasmine in one flower pot to symbolize their love for each other.

Rachael’s mom, Joy, who has a passion for flowers, was the perfect person to provide and arrange all of the gorgeous flowers and centerpieces for the day. The bride and groom have known each other for quite a number of years since they were high school sweethearts and also attended the same college. It was easy to see that these two are the best of friends and have so much love to share. They are headed to the Outer Banks in North Carolina for their honeymoon.
