On October 15th 2022, Rachel and Joe exchanged their vows at Willowbend Country Club in Mashpee, Massachusetts. The wedding was a beautiful celebration of love and commitment, surrounded by family and friends.
From the stunning wedding floral arrangements to the delicious food and lively music, every detail of Rachel and Joe’s Cape Cod wedding was planned to perfection! They shared an emotional first look and enjoyed some wonderful pre-wedding ceremony celebration time with their closest friends and family.
The outdoor ceremony overlooking the picturesque Willowbend golf course with fall foliage provided a romantic ambiance. Following the ceremony, guests were treated too cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the terrace before moving inside the club for the reception.
One of my favorite parts of the day was when Joe read Rachel’s card right before their first look. She wrote the perfect love letter! Joe’s reaction had me, Shannon (My 2nd photographer) and the videographer all in tears too! It was so sweet and set the tone for the whole wedding day. Everything was so emotional and heart felt.
Rachel and Joseph’s love for each other was evident in the little moments they shared throughout the day. Surrounded by so many loving and supportive family members, which was apparent when Rachel’s father gave a heartfelt speech expressing his love for his daughter and welcoming Joe into their family. It was a touching moment that showcased the love and support that Rachel and Joseph have in their lives.
Rachel and Joe met in 2013 but didn’t get to know each other too while until Spring 2017. After a year of long-distance dating, and 10 weeks of unexceptionally living with Rachel’s parents do to the pandemic. The couple moved in together in Hoboken, NJ, and adopted their adorable golden retriever fur baby, Brewster! On their 3rd anniversary, Joe proposed to Rachel on a family walk on the beach, and the wedding planning began.
Rachel and Joseph’s wedding was a beautiful and memorable occasion. It was a testament to their love and commitment to each other, surrounded by a loving and supportive community. I wish them all the best in their new life together as husband and wife.
