Rachel and Steve were married at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in downtown Charlotte and had their reception right upstairs from the church. Rachel and her bridesmaids walked over to the church after they finished getting ready less than a block away at The Dunhill Hotel...where when you walk in the door insane savory aromas overwhelm your nose and instill long-lasting cravings in your belly. The Harvest Moon Grille is the restaurant tucked away in the Dunhill Hotel. It has gotten great reviews and according to Rachel's out of town guests, it's all true! They are known for using fresh, local ingredients in their ever-changing menu. I can't wait to try it...but enough of this restaurant review.

Rachel and Steve are some of the most genuine people I have met. You just feel like 'what you see is what you get' with them. That kind of sincerity paired with wedding day anticipation is a recipe for generating some heartfelt tears. It was really so beautiful watching Rachel and Steve commit their lives to each other -- and the joy and excitement that followed. I think I mentioned this when I posted their engagement session, but Rachel is a dental hygienist, and I am strongly considering changing dentists just so I can hang out with her every six months. Plus I can't imagine Rachel jabbing anyone in the gums (just let me live in denial Rachel). 

Thanks for letting me share in your wedding day Rachel and Steve! Here's to many, many years together!
