RACHAEL + JAMES : A BACKYARD WEDDING FOLK TALE

I got a gal at the head of the creek
Goin up to see her about three times a week
Kiss her on the mouth, just as sweet as any wine
Wraps herself around me like a sweet potatoe vine
Goin’ up to Cripple Creek, goin’ on the run
Goin’ up to Cripple Creek to have a little fun
Goin’ up to Cripple Creek, goin in a whirl
Goin’ up to Cripple Creek to see my girl
Girls up on Cripple Creek about half grown
Jump on a boy like a doggy on a bone
Roll my britches up to my knees
An’ wade into Cripple Creek when I please

There is so much I could say I loved about James & Rachael's fabulous wedding day.  It was rainy, it was vintage, it was diy.  I loved the ice cream truck, and the amazing folk bank "stray local." I loved the relaxed feeling, and Rachael's whole ensemble.  I loved Rachael's expression and the way she cried the first time she saw him, ok she bawled, and I loved again how she bawled as she walked down the aisle. I loved that they decided to have the wedding at James's fathers home.  I loved the light that made a halo around Rachael's head as we laughed, played and snapped pictures.  I loved the that they were true to themselves and had pizza and a pasta bar.  I loved the hundreds of brooches that made up Rachael's bouquet, all belonging to her grandmothers.  I loved that they walked back down the aisle to HEY HO, and danced to Home by Edward Sharpe.  and talk about dancing, I loved that quiet James broke out into the raddest dance moves ever.  I loved that they let us be such a special part of such a lovely day, but more than anything I loved the way they love each other.  I will be forever grateful that I was there to witness it all unfold.
