Rachel & Jerry: Intimate Wedding with Whimsical Gold and Green Details

By:

Wedding: October 22, 2017

Ceremony & reception: Ian’s Chapel at Camp Lucy

Honeymoon: Thailand

Rachel Ehly and Jerry Stanley met through close friends who were certain they were perfect for one another. They spent several years as group travel buddies before just the two of them took a trip—but once they did, they realized there was something special. While touring Italy, Jerry proposed at the Monteverdi Tuscany boutique hotel as they were sipping Champagne on a balcony. Their intimate wedding was full of whimsy with lots of gold, greenery and white flowers. They hired a vintage car to drop Rachel off at the aisle and pick them up at the end of the night. During the ceremony, Jerry’s 89-year-old grandfather rose and said a prayer for the couple, and at the reception Rachel’s stepfather welcomed guests with a beautiful speech that commemorated the couple’s deceased fathers.
