Mr. & Mrs. Bond, David Bond...

Wow! I have been waiting a while to post that headline! I had to, couldn't resist. How can you not when your name is so rad!!!!

Rachel and Dave share not only a wonderful name but amazing style and a group if incredible friends and family. I was so excited to get the day started at Long Beach Alliance Church. I started off with the beautiful Rachel as her and her ladies were prepping. They alll looked so AMAZING!!!! Rachel's gown was from the Vineyard Collection found at Pricilla of Boston . It was perfectly "her". Gamorous and flirty and just really Rachel! And how excited was I to see see stunning yellow heels to go along!! !WOW what a day this would be.. I knew it would be super fun times 2 since I had the best second by my side, thanks Ryel!

We headed over to get some moments captured during the first glance. Dave is such a sweetheart. He is spontaneous and clever and I would have to agree with Rachel.. quite a catch. This time with the groom is always special. They seem to be nervous but try really hard to keep it together. Most often they start asking me questions.. Dave did this too. Yes, Dave it is kind of weird to see this moment and watch you wait for it.. but at the same time it is magical and dazzling!! Thank you both for letting me be there for it!

I tell all my couples what great fun it can be to have a frist glance before the ceremony. A lot of time they are worried that it will steal the emotion of seeing each other at the ceremony. I tell you this.. .If anything.. the emotion is greater!!!! All my grooms who do a first glance are on the edge of tears... and very taken by those big doors reveling their almost wife. Not only does the couple get all teary.. but I do too!!!! Especially when I know and love them so much! The best part of what I do is learning about how two people met and fell in love and why they want to spend the rest of this life together!
So here are Rachel and Dave seeing each other in the sanctuary for the first time! Almonst married!!!!
