Carson & Rachel | A Pastel Blue & Gray Summer Wedding

You’ve probably heard people say “it was a sign” dozens of times. When Carson first “met” Rachel, he received a sign that she was the girl for him… literally. We’re not talking metaphoric here, it WAS a sign! A Practice Plus sign, to be exact! Rachel had been asked to be one of the faces of Practice Plus’s new campaign, which she shyly agreed to. Her face was one on a sign displayed around Baptist Hospital in Little Rock, and it caught Carson’s attention. One day one of Carson’s coworkers, who was bound on finding him a girlfriend, asked him what he was looking for. Standing next to the sign, he halfway joked and pointed at the picture of Rachel and said “her.” What Carson didn’t know was that his coworker would “coincidentally” meet Rachel soon and begin playing Cupid. After Carson found out that his coworker had told this beautiful mystery girl all about him, he was SO embarrassed that he found Rachel on Facebook and messaged her a sincere apology. Rachel appreciated the kind gesture and shrugged it off as just a weird encounter. But somehow the messages slowly continued…

The beginning of their acquaintanceship was so odd that Rachel had a hard time accepting that Carson could actually be the incredibly kind, funny, and God-loving guy that he seemed to be. After some time of talking online, she agreed to go on a date with him. They chose a casual place, Tacos 4 Life in Conway, to meet and get to know each other in person. It turned out that he really was THAT guy, Rachel really was the “poster girl,” and the sign was really THE sign! You guys, you just can’t make this stuff up!

Carson and Rachel are two of the kindest, funniest, energetic, sentimental, and devoted people who could absolutely not be more perfect together. They were joined as husband and wife on Saturday surrounded by hundreds of loving family and friends, at the altar in front of a beautiful wooden cross which Carson built. Rachel paid tribute to her strong family heritage by wearing her great grandmother’s pearl necklace and bracelet. Having been in over 20 weddings between the two of them, it was FINALLY Carson and Rachel’s turn! In fact, Rachel and four of her bridesmaids have all been in each other’s weddings! And we’ve been privileged to photograph four of them! Now THAT’S a #bridetribe!!

Carson and Rachel, we are honored to know you and to have been able to share your (seriously) one-of-a-kind love story! Have fun at Disney World!!
