Lake Arrowhead Wedding : Rachel + Josh

They passed each other in the halls of their high school as teenagers until one day fate decided to bring them together.

When it came time for college, they had become inseparable and worked hard to graduate early from Biola University together. Seeing how nature and traveling are a major part of their lives, it was fitting to plan a destination wedding in Lake Arrowhead, California. Surrounded by there closest family and friends, Rachel and Josh promised to always love each other, through the good and the bad. Their handwritten vows to each other were beautiful, and made even more so when they wiped the tears from their eyes.

Rachel and J0sh, thank you for making your Lake Arrowhead wedding so effortless to photograph. Your family welcomed us with open arms, and your friends made us feel like one of them. You both are insanely adorable, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for you both. We hope we get to meet your future six dogs and six children you vowed to have ;) Much love and appreciation…Josh and Michaela.
