6.28.09 Grandview Wedding Rachel & Jeremy


Our final wedding of the weekend found us at the Grandview for the warm, sunny wedding of Rachel and Jeremy.

CEREMONY DETAILS:  Soft pink rose petals for the guests to shower on the newlyweds after the ceremony.  The programs included a brief bio of each member of the bridal party and how they met Rachel and Jeremy.  It was a lovely personal touch!

Rachel and Jeremy were married by Rabbi Ross on the patio overlooking the river view.  The rabbi did a wonderful job integrating the Jewish and Christian traditions into an engaging ceremony highlighting their similarities.  The bridesmaids wore mauve pink gowns.


One word comes to mind when I think of this couple: ADORABLE!  Rachel was just adorable in her diamond encrusted vintage-style visor veil with a flower in her curly hair.  Vivian (our photographer friend) was as enamoured with Rachel’s look as I was and she’s shared these great photos…


Just as adorable was the way Rachel and Jeremy looked at each other, the way they coached each other through their choreographed first dance to “Better Together” by Jack Johnson.  And the story the Maid of Honor shared about how Jeremy was such a thoughtful guy that he remembered to bring along Rachel’s inhaler when he proposed!


COOL PARENT DANCE SONG:  Jeremy chose the song, “Sweet Child O’ Mine” performed by Sheryl Crowe for his dance with is mother.  A very cool choice if you love rock and roll, but with slightly less edge than the Guns ‘N Roses original.

We gave Jeremy and his friends a good Bon Jovi fix: “Livin’ On a Prayer” and “It’s My Life” before ending the night with the sing-along “American Pie” by Don MacLean, the song that ended each dance at Rachel’s summer school.

Oh, and the photobooth!  The guests loved it.  So did Jeff and I…
