October is always one of my favorite months for weddings, and Rachel & Jesse’s celebration did not disappoint! I’d been looking forward to their wedding at Rosewood Farms for months, ever since I met them last year (see their engagement photos, HERE)! Jesse and Rachel are both so giving, kind, and positive… truly such a great couple! It feels so natural and easy hanging out with them, and we became friends right away! Plus, they’re major dog lovers. Even though Louie the pup couldn’t be there on the big day, Rachel and Jesse found creative ways to include him.
Rosewood Farms has remained one of my favorite venues since it opened, because it offers so much variety. The light and airy ceremony barn is obviously gorgeous, and there are so many different places around the property for photos. It’s just lovely! Add Rachel, Jesse, their family and friends… and well, you have perfection. Enjoy some of my favorites from this October 8th wedding day!!
Popping champagne with the girls in front of the bridal suite!
Everyone was so EXCITED. Loved these girls!
Reading a letter from her groom…
Meanwhile, Jesse looking handsome and ready to see his bride!
Love this shot from Rachel’s first look with her dad & brothers.
Time for the ceremony…
I love Jesse’s expression as he saw Rachel for the first time!
The sweetest, most intentional ceremony. Loved it!
You know I’m a sucker for hand-written, personal vows.
Caption this photo? Haha… the best man was hilarious.
Married!! Finally Mr. & Mrs. McKenzie!
Some cocktail hour details… thanks, Louie!
The sweetest portrait time, as the sun was going down…
This was candid, and I love how simple it is… with cocktail hour behind them!
Some fun with sparklers before heading inside…
Entering to “Who Let the Dogs Out?” of course!
I loved every single dance, toast, kiss, and reception moment!
Rachel even makes stuffing cake into her mouth look gorgeous!
PARTY time. This group did not mess around!
Jesse and Rachel shared a private last dance… loved it!!
Congratulations to the newlyweds!

"Paige's work is absolute perfection. She was one of the first vendors I booked and one of the easiest and sweetest to work with... She was warm and welcoming, and made us feel like we knew what we were doing. At our wedding, Paige was the biggest blessing. My gosh, are our photos beautiful. I can't thank her enough. They are everything we could have wanted!"
"Paige is so kind and helpful. She answered any questions I had leading up to my wedding in a timely fashion and she gave great tips for preparing for photos. I was able to focus on each moment and let Paige do her thing! Paige made me feel so comfortable. The photos we've gotten back are just gorgeous. Paige is professional, kind, and amazing at her job!"
"Paige is amazing! If you're considering her as your photographer, you will not regret it. As soon as we talked to Paige, we knew she was perfect! She was well-organized and made us feel so comfortable. She was such a trooper throughout the day, keeping it light and fun through the portrait process. Our photos are absolutely stunning. We'll cherish them for the rest of our lives!"
"Paige was our wedding and engagement photographer, and both experiences were fantastic! Paige is such a warm and welcoming person that my husband and I felt at ease in front of the camera. She's totally down-to-earth and so fun to work with. She photographed our wedding day so beautifully and made sure to capture every detail... We will treasure the images forever!"
"I can't even begin to explain how amazing Paige was when she shot our wedding! She knew exactly what to do to make my husband and I feel like our best selves, and her photos captured our love perfectly! Paige is so professional and essentially kept everything running smoothly before our ceremony began. Not to mention, her photos are the most beautiful I've seen!"
