Rachael + Seth | Falls Park Engagement Session | Pendleton, Indiana

I stood on the other side of the dance floor as “all the single ladies” made their way to the front of the stage. Emily, one of my beautiful 2016 brides and now friend stood poised, ready to toss her bouquet with reckless abandon. As the bouquet flew up and then back down towards the group of excited girls, I smiled as my shutter clicked. Emily’s sister, Rachael had caught the bouquet. The two sisters immediately hugged and laughed together. After all, tradition says that whomever catches the bouquet will be the next in line to marry. In this case, that tradition will live on.

I’d noticed Rachael and Seth through out Emily and Kyle’s wedding. Rachael was an incredible Maid of Honor to Emily, anything Emily needed Rachael was all over it. They joked and carried on and you could see that these two aren’t just sisters, but friends too.  Seth had quickly proven himself to be the MVP of the wedding – running to get earrings, setting up flowers – you name it. His willingness to help and make the day easier for the two families was so impressive. (Read all about Kyle and Emily’s wedding here!)

Between Rachael catching the bouquet and Seth just being all around awesome, I couldn’t have been more thrilled to hear about their Christmas engagement! Rachael was visiting Seth in Virginia Beach for the holidays and while opening presents little did she know that an ornament hung just feet from her on the Christmas tree that read “Rachael and Seth – We’re Engaged” with her beautiful engagement ring sparkling amongst the twinkling lights and tree branches. Seth is a man with a plan and got it all on video. I had to watch it twice because I ran and got Zach so that he could see the video also. Seriously, we could not be happier for Rachael and Seth! They are just perfect together.

Seth flew in for Rachael’s IUPUI graduation ceremony and while he was here we made sure to fit in time for their engagement session at Falls Park in Pendleton, Indiana. The weather was absolutely perfect and we had so much fun laughing, taking photos, playing on the swings and well.. attempting to climb trees. (We tried for cute tree photos folks, but it just didn’t work out for us that day. Haha) Rachael and Seth were total troopers and did everything I requested, even if it seemed off the wall. Their easy going spirits and ability to laugh together tell me that these two have such a bright future as husband and wife. I am counting down the days to their wedding this fall, and if you’re wondering what that date is.. just take a look at the back of their adorable custom jerseys!
