Out on the cliffs, I asked Rachel to turn and look at Chad as I photographed her portraits. After a minute or so, she sniffled and asked if she could turn back towards me and I looked over to Chad was tearing up too. All throughout the day every look communicated the kind love these two have for each other.
Every moment of the weekend was expertly planned and showered with gorgeous details, but there's no doubt that the highlight was always this marriage and the people surrounding them.
The royal wedding took place shortly after Rachel & Chad's, but they're the real deal and I think Rachel's dad said it best "this is better than the royal wedding."
