But Garrett was no slouch either! He looked extremely dapper in his navy blue suit with a burgundy tie. Their colors of burgundy and navy perfectly complemented the season, adding to the romance and elegance of the day.

Candid photos are always some of our favorites of any wedding day. Rachel & Garrett’s loved ones took candids to a new level of amazing. Some of the best moments included the girls getting ready, laughing with bottles of champagne in hand.

Then, there’s Garrett and his posse throwing back Hooten-Young whiskey in the groom’s room. Garrett is a Marine veteran and this particular whiskey is a veteran owned and run distillery, so it is especially important to him.

But, probably the moment that topped the charts for the day was when Garrett first saw his bride walking toward him down the aisle. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Hell, if you don’t get a little misty just looking at these photos, maybe there’s something wrong with you! (Just kidding.)
