what can i say about rachel + aaron? so many good things- that’s for sure!
we drove to jackson on a thursday because we wanted to have time to explore a little place called fondren. rachel and aaron bought a house in it’s cute historic neighborhood and it’s where they filmed part of ‘the help’. the main drag is filled with cute boutiques, cozy coffee shops and a yummy bakery- not to mention the art deco influence of the whole area- it’s truly a lovely place. it was our second time there (our first time we were shooting rachel + aaron’s engagements!), and i was LOVING everything about fondren. this time, we took the opportunity to eat at brent’s drugs- the diner from ‘the help’. we got a burger, a grilled cheese and milkshakes and tried to relive the movie.
our sweet couple rachel + aaron were kind enough to invite us out-of-towners to their rehearsal dinner. it was such a blessing to hear their friends and family pour out all of their love for these darling people. rachel and aaron were wed at mississippi college’s provine chapel. after the ceremony we headed over to the cedars at fondren for the party! one thing we loved about their reception was the live band- now, we’ve been to a lot of weddings and don’t get us wrong, we LOVE some motown cover bands, but heavens to betsy killed it and even played a bit of their own music!
oh and don’t worry about all the cat images… they were just so cute!
cheers to such a great couple with whom we have so much in common!
