Raquel and Josh’s Elegant Garden Wedding at Beth Tzedec.

You might recognize our bride Raquel from our previous blog post that showcased our favourite emotional wedding moments from 2016. Check it out here if you haven’t already. This couple was also featured in the Wedluxe blog over here. We can’t get enough of Raquel and Josh so we wanted to dedicate a post for their Beth Tzedec wedding!

Raquel and Josh radiate authenticity and kindness. They’re the type of people you want to constantly surround yourself with. It’s no wonder that they have such a long history together! Reflecting the love story of her parents, Raquel married her high school sweetheart Josh with the same ring her mother was married in.

We love pretty details, but we love hearing the stories behind them even more! What made Raquel and Josh’s wedding extra special was that they stuffed their day with little things that mean a lot. Not only does Raquel’s ring represents “something borrowed” but it is a symbol of a long lasting relationship. As if that wasn’t enough of a tear jerker, Raquel gave her dad a handkerchief with the name of the song they danced to for the father-daughter dance. It’s not surprising to hear that her dad has it framed by his bedside these days! Another important element of the wedding was the printed materials because it was all done by the bride! As a graphic designer herself, she decided to use this opportunity to share a piece of her art to her family and friends.

When planning the wedding, Raquel mentioned the importance of supporting each other with every decision. No doubt, you will hear countless suggestions and ideas during the planning process, but at the end of the day, you should consider what will make you and your fiance happy. Only then will you be able to enjoy your special day with all your heart!

Another piece of advice from Raquel:”Find each other through the noise and share in the joy of the day.”

You can tell from these photos that Raquel and Josh definitely didn’t lose sight of what the celebration was about – the love they share for one another.
