Love is a unique journey and Rachel and Bernie’s story is no different which is why they are so deserving of this moment. These two fated hearts met while Rachel was attending officer training school for the Air Force in Alabama. Bernie was a tall, dark, and handsome military man and through some convincing of her sister in law, Rachel decided to give this guy a shot. Taking the chance worked out because less than a year later they were blessed with a son on the way and decided to tie the knot at their local church. Due to the rushed nuptials their family was unable to be present and Rachel didn’t get to experience the magic of such a wonderful occasion. Rachel’s sister in law wanted to give her the wedding day of her dreams as a surprise and luckily this bride loves surprises!
The surprise wedding took place on July 24th at the historic Mims House in Holly Springs, NC, with family and friends present! A big shoutout to all the incredible vendors who made this perfect day possible!
