Rachel & Joe #1_edited-1(Blog) I met Rachel and Joe at Fort Rachel & Joe #2_edited(Blog)Fisher a few weeks before their big day to discuss details and collect a few things Rachel had prepared for the ceremony.

Yes, definitely going to need the large bamboo table for this one. Fortunately Rachel included a diagram and we had the foresight to do a trial run before the big day. Melissa did a great job setting everything up and ensuring the items were property distributed; don’t know what we would do without her!
The guest table was one Rachel & Joe #4(Blog) of many surprises that made this wedding truly unique. As friends and family made their way to the shore they were greeted by sounds of a five piece brass band led by the bride’s sister. Moments before the ceremony was set to begin Rachel and her father arrived in a vintage British taxi complete with driver in full uniform.
