RW: Rachel + Neil | The Roundhouse Beacon
Rachel knew what she wanted from the very beginning - something beautiful, something completely them, and something that hadn't been done a hundred times before. Rachel was well on her way to getting that dream. She had the perfect man in Neil, the perfect venue in The Roundhouse, but she just needed help perfecting some of her ideas and making them come to life. So much of what you will see in the images below - by the incredible Kate Ignatowski Photography - is a true marriage of Rachel and Amy's brains working together to create an unbelievable event.
When Amy and I discussed the idea of me taking on larger projects a few years back, I was excited for so many reasons, but I think I was most excited about was really getting to know my clients. Not that I hadn't up to that point, but I knew it would be a little different because of how involved I was going to be with so many different elements of their wedding, and their lives. Although Rachel and Neil started out as clients, I can truly say that they will be lifelong friends and I could not be more honored!
Can we please just talk about how insanely gorgeous these details are!!!
This was hands down one of my all time favorite groups of girls! Gorgeous on the inside and out!!
And her family!!! The most welcoming, warm and sincere people EVER! I absolutely ADORE her parents + sister, and completely see where she gets her genuine and sincere personality from!
Her face says it all!
The lace wrapped around Rachel's bouquet is actually from her mom's wedding dress. Both Rachel and her sister Jessica were able to have a really special piece of their mom's wedding day with them on both of theirs!
A whole bunch of stunners coming at ya!
Rachel and Neil's Rabbi did one of the most INCREDIBLE things before he got the ceremony underway. He gave all of the guests a few moments to get an uninterrupted picture of the Bride + Groom before he began. This was a nice way for their friends and family to snag a quick picture, and then put their phones away and be super present for the beautiful ceremony that was about to take place! LOVE this!
She's not at all excited to be married ;)
This Boxwood Wall was a labor of love. Dean and his team at Forever in Bloom absolutely CRUSHED this, and it was the perfect statement piece for the Cocktail Hour area and Escort Card Display. So much so, that we had a few people comment on how they would love to do this in their home!
We couldn't get enough of incredible Boxwood wall and INSANE flower letters!!
Living for the industrial elements of the Roundhouse, but LOVED adding some glam with these Crystal Chandys to make a statement!!
Mr + Mrs Keenan!!
Rachel had the perfect surprise for Neil! His face when he saw this cake was EVERYTHING!
Some more family history - the cake topper sitting on the table was the cake topper from Rachel's parents wedding!!
I always love when the Bride + Groom say a few quick words. Short, sweet, and the perfect segue into the party!
NO surprise here that Rachel + Neil have the PERFECT Hora pic!
This party was incredible! Everyone was dancing ALL night long!
I mean...the heart eyes are real with these two!
A HUGE THANKS TO THE INCREDIBLE TEAM OF VENDORS FOR ABSOLUTELY CRUSHING THIS WEDDING FROM HEAD TO TOE!
