Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Rachel and Sam had all the elements of a perfect wedding in the desert at The Boulders Resort. There were Native American touches throughout the day from the live ceremony music to the readings. The day started with a super sweet first look between Rachel and Sam. And ahhh, that dress!! Rachel and her mom purchased this fabulous frock at Kleinfeld’s, the store we’ve all seen time and time again on “Say Yes To The Dress”. Perfection!! Wait until you see some of the reception details! Jen with Encore Creative did a fabulous job of bringing the desert night indoors for the wedding party to enjoy. But first, the first look. Sam is wearing his Coast Guard uniform. Both he and Rachel met while in the Coast Guard and after the wedding will be stationed in separate cities. So this day was a touching send off!
