Jesse + Rachel | Greenville SC Wedding Photographer

On December the 10th I received a fb message from Jesse saying he was planning to propose to Rachel and if all goes well they would be contacting me in regards to wedding photography!  I was so excited.  I had seen them together at other weddings I photographed and I just knew they would be engaged soon.  It has been a complete joy to get to know them and be a part of this special time in their lives.

So once again God blessed me with what I call a “Crosspoint Wedding”.  To me this is a day I get to spend time with past brides/bridesmaids who have become dear friends/sisters in Christ and witness a Gospel-centered wedding!!!  Jesse and Rachel’s day was just that.  It was so special in so many ways.  God blessed us with a beautiful day, a gorgeous venue, and wonderful friends and family to enjoy it with!!!  My daughter Abbi was able to come along and capture some behind the scene shots that I absolutely love.  I am so thankful she was able to come be a part of this wedding with me.

A few days before their wedding Rachel wrote the following on their wedding blog. It was so good I decided to share it in this blog post.  Beautiful words, wonderful truth!
“Our covenant, our vowing before God & one another & all gathered with us that day, will bind our hearts; for, God has kept covenant with his people time eternal. He demonstrated that covenant through the greatest sacrifice, namely, Christ upon the cross; & He alone has made that perfection of love & humility available through the Holy Spirit.” ~ Rachel
Rachel and Jesse’s wedding took place at Ellery Farms.  This venue is really amazing and the owner is so wonderful to work with!  The girls got ready upstairs and the guys got ready downstairs.   I so enjoy being in 1 place all day!!!  Check out the bridesmaids dresses!!  So many beautiful styles and colors!  Long dresses are my favorite!!!  So pretty!
