I knew Rachel & Joe's wedding would be a celebration of love and life when I met them at Immaculata University and did their engagement session last fall. Rachel's family is closely affiliated with St. Aloyisus church where they had their ceremony. The 2011-2012 school year was Rachel's first year teaching at St. Al's full time. Her kindergarten class sung a song after Communion which made for a really special addition to the ceremony. Afterword, everyone headed to Immaculata University where Joe & Rachel met for the reception. Having such close ties to their venues brought a lot of intimacy & nostalgia to the day. Thanks to my awesome assistant Anna for catching some gorgeous shots & for being my right hand gal all day.
