Rachael and Nic's love story began when they met on an Alaskan cruise. Nic was a musician performing on board, while Rachael was vacationing with her family, who also met Nic during their trip. Every couple of years, Rachael's family likes to go on a family vacation together - after these two lovebirds hit it off and got engaged, they all felt Door County would make the perfect place to have an intimate ceremony, especially since it was a destination they hadn't been to yet.

The forecast called for rain, but they had a tent set up and ready to go. Miraculously, the rain held off until after they broke the glass!

It was time to celebrate! After the rain, we headed back outside to do the family and couple photos!

Of course, the adorable pup Groot had to pose with his mom and dad. Check out that lil' bow tie! 😍

One crazy thing that happened during pictures, when we were on the beach, there was a brown and white piece of beach glass right next to each other. I couldn't think of a more beautiful symbol of marriage connecting to the breaking of the glass.

Proud parents, so much fun, laughter, happy tears and much love!

Happy First Anniversary Rachael and Nic! Mazel Tov!
