Meet an amazing couple I affectionately think of as my Covid couple. This beautiful Moment Bride took on the task of planning her wedding during our crazy shelter-in-place, ever-changing, uncertain environment. This required massive determination, adaptability, and creative problem solving. On top of all this, she finished school, which included completing a final 100-page capstone thesis!! Talk about determination and passion – I am pretty sure that this couple can accomplish anything it puts its mind to!! Rachel and Gabe are nothing less then absolutely awesome!!
I love this couple’s story. Their love grew from a strong foundation of friendship that blossomed in separate states while Gabriel faithfully served our country. Gabe loves the strength of their relationship which is rooted in shared values and a love for God and family. They share many similar interests and have beautifully complementary differences. Rachel also loves the sweet things Gabriel does for her. (Evidently he is very good at making breakfast burritos.) My heart melted when Rachel told me he stopped by to bring her flowers during her bridal shower. What a sweet, glorious love!! Gabe proposed amid the beautiful glow of Glendale Glitters and of course Rachel said yes! This love was meant to be.
Rachel and Gabe, it was so fun to photograph you two. Your expressions, love and good-hearted fun were radiant in every pose. I’m soooo excited for your wedding. (It’s almost here!!) I’m grateful to see that nothing can hold back the love and commitment you both share. Lots of love to you both!
