Grand Hyatt Denver Wedding – Rachel + Nate

Grand Hyatt Denver Wedding – Rachel + Nate

One thing is for sure. Nate loves his Rachel. These two found true happiness and it is so endearing!

The beautiful couple was wed at The First Baptist Church of Denver. And their gorgeous reception overlooking the Mile High City was at The Pinnacle Club at the Grand Hyatt Denver.

Rachel and Nate started as friends, but Nate had a plan. He eventually sent Rachel a Snapchat that would change their lives forever. <3 Later they moved from Denver to Illinois and eventually to Virginia Beach (where Nathan is a Captain in the Air Force).

On July 3, 2015, Rachel dragged Nate on a skydiving adventure that, little did she know, would be the beginning of their forever adventure. The pilot had Nate jump a few minutes early so that he could set up his cute sign, “Rachel Ellen Smith Will You Marry Me? Yes No Maybe”with a pen next to each box. She of course checked yes.

When I first met with Rachel’s mom, Ellen, to talk about her daughter’s wedding she showed me a photo of the two of them. My first thought was, “WOW. Those will be some cute babies!” Haha! Ellen was so giddy about the wedding and I just knew this was going to be a good one. And I was right.

Rachel and Nate are the most genuine people. When they are with you they are very present. Their love and joy for life is contagious. They both come from very close families and their wedding was such a celebration!! Check out all the laughter and tears of joy below! Enjoy!
