OH MY GOSH! I’m pretty sure you can hear my squealing through the computer as I type this! Lex and I had been anxiously awaiting Rachael & Joe’s Classic Savannah wedding for so long. And let me be the first to tell y’all that it was worth every single minute!
Rachael and Joe’s story starts all the way back in eighth grade. Throughout the years, they have experienced high school, dating long distance in college, deployment, and FINALLY a move to Colorado. After ten years, Rachael and Joe are officially Mr. & Mrs. Meier. Their love story is beautiful and inspiring, and there will never be enough words to express how greatly I adore them.
After many visits to Savannah, Rachael fell in love with the charm of the city. With the help of the INCREDIBLE team at Sincerely Yours Events, her dream wedding came to life!! Their wedding day started off in the most charming way possible. Rachael and her girls got ready at the amazing Mirabelle Suites overlooking The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. A girl after my own heart, Rachael slipped in to her gorgeous Hayley Paige gown. After sharing in emotional first looks with her parents and bridesmaids, we traveled from one beautiful square to the next. We laughed, we squealed (a lot), and soaked in every single joy filled moment of this day!
It’s truly breathtaking and humbling to step foot in the Cathedral. As Rachael and her father walked down the aisle, you couldn’t help but get emotional. All of the years had led to this holy moment, and I couldn’t dream of a more iconic location!
The absolute best part of their day was getting to spend it with the most amazing people. Rachael has been such a dear friend to me since our freshman year at Auburn, and it was such a privilege to document these memories. Their families treated us like we were one of their own, and Rachael and Joe went above and beyond to make everyone feel special. They have such pure and beautiful hearts, and it overflows into everything that they do. And listening to the speeches and kind words from their friends, and it so easy to see how adored they are by all that know them.
Mr. & Mrs. Meier, what a gift it is to know you and to love you. You both hold such dear and special places in our hearts and we are so grateful to bear witness to your story. We cannot wait to see where your love takes you, but we are SO happy that you from here on out you will go through everything together. We will cherish the memories from your wedding day forever!
I’m also not even the least bit sorry for the amount of images in this blog post! ENJOY!!
All our love,
Syd & Lex
