Rachel & Tim. Wedding.

They exited the Oakland Temple & there they were…their hands woven tightly together, their smiles wider than the Grand Canyon…totally perfect & literally over-the-moon in LOVE. Rachel & Tim are the type of people who just melt your heart & make you happy to be around them. Simply put, their wedding was just that: a wedding that melted everyone’s heart & made everyone in attendance happy.

I can’t even tell you how excited I was to shoot this wedding. Having photographed both Rachel’s sister‘s wedding as well as her cousin’s wedding, I definitely was excited to be around their family again!  It was so nice to see familiar faces & to really feel welcomed by their wonderful family! I knew that this wedding would be chalk full of gorgeous details & amazing style & I was right! I literally was swooning over each sweet & gorgeous detail…from the simple gerbera daisies to the gorgeous navy bridesmaids dresses, along with Tim’s grey suit & Rachel’s sweet, perfect dress…I literally can’t say it enough about this wedding but everything was perfect!!

Rachel & Tim, thank you for giving me the chance to capture your special day- I soooooooo loved working with you both! You are a sweet couple & I was beyond happy to be a part of your special day! I wish you the happiest of lives together…xoxo, marielle.

The Oakland Temple’s landscaping always takes my breath away…their roses this time of year are spectacular.

I am DYING over this photograph. Seriously-they are sooooo cute!

Rachel, you are so gorgeous!

I loved their colors! Navy blue & yellow just seem so perfect for a summer wedding…

My fun & fabulous assistant Connie covered Tim & Rachel’s reception…here are a few of her images…

I’d love to hear what your favorites are!

    What a gorgeous couple!! These pictures are awesome. Once again, GREAT job, Marielle!!

    I love the ones in front of the temple. And I love that her dress is tea length — being so petite, it looks perfect on her! A longer dress would have overwhelmed her frame. I wish I had you photograph my wedding Marielle!

  4. great coverages, Marielle! Definitely love that first one of them together after their ceremony – on the steps in the hallway. Too cute!

    Great pictures, and I am absolutely in love with this bride’s dress! Is there any way to get the name of the designer? I have searched online and cannot find anything like it. I would appreciate any help!!!
