JEH Ranch Wedding…..Brent and Rachel

You never know when you meet someone how they will affect your life.

9 years ago I met Veronica at Independence School.  She was the school secretary.  She was always kind and warm to me and my little kindergartener  Brandon.  Being a new mom you are a little nervous and have many silly questions.  Veronica never made me feel like any of my question were silly.  When Brandon was in 1st grade we were told he would be transferred to a brand new elementary school called American.  We were thrilled to find out Veronica would also make the move.  She was with us his entire elementary school year, her sweet soothing voice was always there when we called the school or when we had to stop by the office.

Fast forward 5 more years, Brandon is now 15.  Veronica sent me a message on Face Book to tell me her daughter was getting married and would I be her wedding coordinator. Of course I said YES!

Rachel was amazing, she is one of the strongest most posed women I have ever met.  You see……….the morning of her wedding she was in the hospital.  In all of the years I have been doing weddings I have never had a bride in the hospital the day of their wedding.  Rachel had been deathly sick the night before.  They were able to get some fluids in her.  She made it through hair, make-up and photos and we had time for her to rest.  She was such a trooper.  She pushed through feeling bad, she was not going to allow her day to be ruined.

Their wedding was at JEH Ranch, what a beautiful venue.  Morgan and her team go out of their way to make sure every wedding is  spectacular!

I am so looking forward to seeing all of the amazing photos by Makenzie.

Below are a few we took.

Thank you Veronica for taking care of us every day for 7 years it was a pleasure to take care of you and Rachel for her very special day.
