Real Wedding: Rachel + Andrew at The Bradford

Rachel & Andrew are such incredible individuals and perfect for each other! I met Rachel for lunch three months before the wedding day and I was immediately impressed by her sweet demeanor. She and Andrew were planning their wedding from Texas and really knocked it out of the park. They choose great vendors to make their wedding dreams a reality and they trusted each of us - it's so wonderful that they knew they choose the right team and were always confident in our suggestions/decisions.

There was not a single stressful moment in their planning until....the threat of rain appeared on the radar. It was a 40% chance of rain and while I and The Bradford team were really concerned about them not getting a tent, they choose to see the glass as half full. When I shared that the floorplan would be reallllly tight if it did rain on their wedding day and they didn't have the tent, they said something that will forever stick with me: "We love every single person who will be at our wedding and what better day to be super close to all of these people!" Talk about perspective! Sometimes we get so caught up in making sure the day is absolutely perfect that we lose sight of sometimes perfection is being extra close with your favorite people in the whole world!

I couldn't close out this blog without mentioning that each of the plates for their reception was a family heirloom. Every single one of them was provided by Andrew's parents and really made the space have a very sweet personal touch!

Rachel & Andrew - Thank you for trusting me and being incredible people that I enjoyed serving on your wedding day!!

Cheers, Whitney
