Michael & Rachel Rich
By David Jones |December 14th, 2014| Ceremony & Reception
On Sunday December 14, 2014 we arrived at 1:30pm for the Rich wedding due to start 4:15pm. The Hollow Hill Farm & Event Center was the stunning country backdrop for this wedding ceremony and reception. Michael and Rachel's guests began arriving at 3:30pm. Many took the time to walk around and take in the scenery on the grounds. At 3:45 we played prelude music prior to the start of the wedding ceremony.
The wedding ceremony started promptly at 4:15 pm in the newly renovated barn and was presided over by Rachel's father George. After a 15 minute wedding ceremony, guests transitioned to the Great Room for the reception where they enjoyed cocktails and appetizers as the bridal party posed for photographs with the photographer Emily from Somewhat Photography.
At 5:30pm we formally introduced the newlyweds into the reception and they led the bridal party & family through a buffet dinner. After dinner, Michael and Rachel both took to the wireless mic and thanked everyone for playing a role in their day of celebration. Josh, the best man, shared some childhood memories of he and Michael in Oklahoma (priceless..lol) The couple made their way to the cake table and cut the cake to the music of The Tempations "Sugar Pie Honey Bunch"
The first dance together as husband and wife featured the song "God Gave Me You" by Dave Barnes. Rachel danced with her father and had a surprise dance break in the middle to "Gangnam Style" by PSY. Laughter filled the room as dad did his best to imitate the moves from the South Korean rapper. Michael danced with his mother prior to opening up the dance floor. Throughout the remainder of the evening, guests danced to the sounds of DJ David Jones until the wedding reception ended at 8:25pm.
