RMP: The First Year

First up in our series “RMP: The First Year” is a look back at Zach and Lydia’s rustic wedding!

Zach and Lydia got married back in January and will soon be celebrating 6 months of marriage! I knew when I planned to look back at our first year at RMP that this wedding had to be apart of the series. Their wedding was so much fun! This family knows how to throw a party. Lydia is one of my best friend’s sisters so I was so excited when she reached out for engagement and wedding photography! We had such a great time at their engagement session and exploring different places. Although I had met Lydia before, that was the first time I met her fianc√© Zach. From just our time together during their engagement session, I could tell they were perfect together.

The wedding day was also perfect! Zach and Lydia got married at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Crawfordville, FL. It was such a beautiful ceremony. We then headed down the road to The Property at Sand Lake for the reception! The reception was in a beautifully decorated barn and was the perfect fit for these two. Hints of blush and blue were scattered throughout the rustic barn to create the prettiest backdrop to party the night away.

Check out some of my favorites from Zach and Lydia’s wedding day and stayed tuned for more flashbacks from our first year in business!
