Rachel & RJ : Union Station

So excited to share this incredibly JOYFUL wedding with you today! Rachel and RJ are two of the most fun people we have ever met and had the pleasure of working with! Deeply rooted in each other, their families, and their faith, this couple’s love and joy for life absolutely shined through on their wedding day.

The wedding took place at Union Station in the heart of downtown Wilmington. With its tall ceilings, grand windows and picturesque views of the Cape Fear River, it was the perfect venue for Rachel and RJ’s classy, upbeat celebration. The ceremony was led by Pastor Barrington Johnson out of Charlotte, NC. His powerful message about marriage and family resonated with everyone present, and we loved how Rachel and RJ exemplified these values in their personal vows to one another. It was an inspiring ceremony to witness and be a part of!

Then to kick the reception into high gear, Rachel and 2 of her girlfriends surprised everyone with a coordinated performance of Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary”, complete with a fabulous gold tassel dress and sequin dance costumes! What followed was a night filled with high energy, laughter and spontaneity! During the toasts and dances, we could really see how closely knit Rachel and RJ’s families are and how much fun they always have together. DJ Nigel Harris, who Rachel has known since she was very young, took the party up another notch with live turntable mixing and beats that kept everyone out on the dance floor all night long. It was truly an unforgettable affair and we had an absolute blast filming it all!

Rachel and RJ, congratulations to you both and thank you so much for letting us capture your incredible day. We wish you a lifetime full of continued happiness, cherished memories and marital bliss!
