Rachael and Michael are super fun and loving couple! I absolutely adore them and I, Cherry Hill wedding photographer, am so truly blessed to be a part of their Stockton Seaview wedding! Below I am sharing the wedding photos from their first look, some portraits and wedding ceremony at Central United Methodist Church. If you would like to see some more of their wedding portrait session and wedding reception photos at Stockton Seaview check out Cherry Hill Wedding Photographer :: Rachael+Michael Stockton Seaview Wedding Reception.
Rachael and Michael’s wedding took place on a beautiful January day. The weather was literally perfect. It wasn’t sunny as I would like it to be, but it wasn’t raining, it wasn’t snowing, it was warm and the bride and bridesmaids were not freezing in their beautiful blue lacy dresses. Rachael arrived at the Central United Methodist Church to see her groom a little before the wedding and….he wasn’t there :). I think they ran a little late in their getting ready and didn’t arrive at the church on time. Well, we forgave them :). They were just on time anyway and we did have enough time for the photos because we planned well :). Well, check out their beautiful photos!
Racheal was absolutely stunning bride! Look at the shinning smile!Angela, the maid of honor, holding her speech was patiently waiting for her future brother-in-law to arrive.Rachael’s dad was simply the best. But I guess I say that about every dad. I love dads!!!Rachel on the phone with Michael trying to find him and figure out why he is not here at the Central United Methodist Church for their first look. They mixed up the schedule… 🙂
Rachel wore elegant silver flats for her wedding.
Rachel’s dad was such a help all the wedding day. He was so sweet carrying her dress everywhere we went.And yes, sweet kisses from dad to her daughter is my favorite too!And look at this gorgeous lady! Brides are so beautiful!And then the bridal party arrived and the fun began! Michael was there for the first look and the day began! Rachael walked to him as if it was a church isle. It was beautiful! Both of them got very emotional and it was a super sweet wedding moment. And while Rachael and Michael had their personal moment the bridal party was snapping selfies :).I love flying veil shot, and with the most gorgeous cathedral veil that Rachael wore, it was a perfect shot!And under the veil shot is my personal favorite. Every bride that I photograph that wears a veil, will get this shot :).Rachael’s cathedral veil was so long that having it around Michael’s neck was the most convenient place :). He looked like such a stylish groom!
And now as Michael was here he took over the dad and carried Rachael’s veil, dress and anything she needed help with!And then it was time for the ceremony. We got a few more portraits of bride and groom and some more bridal part photos and you can check them out at Cherry Hill Wedding Photographer :: Rachael+Michael Stockton Seaview Wedding Reception.Ceremony began. Michael was waiting for his bride to walk down the isle. And when she did her got emotional. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t get emotional?! It is such a touching moment.And as the wedding ceremony was done and it was already dark outside we used from off camera flash to make a pop out of the tiny bubbles that they used for the grand exit. I like the result and it was absolutely fun! Then we got the wedding family formal photos done and some bridal party photos as well :).It was a beautiful wedding ceremony at the Central United Methodist Church, but the wedding reception at the Stockton Seaview was even more beautiful!
