Can every wedding be outdoors with gorgeous floral arches, mountain views, and flowy blush dresses? Wedding trends will come and go but outdoor ceremonies will forever be my favorite!

Rachel and Caden tied the knot on a Thursday for their summer wedding at Walden Hall. They were surrounded by their closest family and friends who also played a major roll in their wedding day. Caden’s grandfather officiated their ceremony and Rachel’s godmother designed the florals!

From the C&R (Caden and Rachel) floral design floating in the pool, to the seating chart, and signage throughout the venue no detail big or small was forgotten.

I loved getting to know this sweet couple and be a part of their big day alongside so many awesome vendors! Here are a few of my favorites from Rachel and Caden’s Summer Wedding at Walden Hall!
