Congratulations to Rachelle and Cody! They tied the knot in a romantic Haus 820 wedding day in Lakeland, Florida. From start to finish, it was clear how much Rachelle and Cody love each other – and their guests, their family and friends. The whole day was beautiful to witness and I’m honored I could be there with them to celebrate.

Christian Wedding Ceremony 

Since Rachelle and Cody met at church, I knew that their ceremony would be even more important to them than normal. During their ceremony, they were married by their pastors and prayed for. It was absolutely beautiful and a wonderful way to incorporate something so meaningful to them into their wedding day. Rachelle and Cody also made sure to honor her father, who passed, with his photo – and there was lots of mention of how much he loved Cody and was proud of them both in the speeches and moments of the day.

Earthy and Romantic Wedding Inspiration 

When Rachelle and Cody talked to me about the inspiration for their wedding day, they used words like “earthy” and “ethereal”. The goal was to have a day that felt romantic, yet minimal at Haus 820, a renovated warehouse in Central Florida. The space has lots of white and black tones, so Rachelle and Cody focused on using whites, golds, and greens to decorate the space! When put all together, it looked stunning! Rachelle and Cody also told me how much they loved candles – and they really do love them. Their favorites were even candles. It was another fun touch to their day that showed off their personalities.

Rachelle & Cody

One of the things that I love most about Rachelle and Cody is that they’re so, so in love. Cody is originally from Louisiana and she’s from Naples, FL. The two met at church and the rest was history. Since they met and hit it off, they’ve basically been inseparable and it’s just beautiful to watch them together. I know they’re going to have a beautiful life together!
