Rachel + Ben •  Boerne, Texas

Rachel + Ben’s love story has all the classic components — a missed connection early in life, separation as young adults, and a sweet reunion at Christmas time (after some good, old-fashioned Instagram stalking, of course!)

Here’s the full scoop (starting with a fun fact: Rachel + Ben have actually known each other since birth!) Their parents were friends before they were ever even born, y’all. How COOL is that?! As kids, they went to the same school; but Ben is a year older and they were never really close. They lost though through high school / college, but 2 years ago, they both began to “stalk” each other on social media after finding out the other was still single. (Love me some good Instagram stalking!) With some nudging from mutual friends, they became official on Christmas day of 2016. By New Year’s, they dropped the “L” word… and the rest is history! (sigh) I’m such a sucker for a good love story. And this one’s prrrrretty great!

Rachel + Ben’s wedding and wedding reception were held at the beeyooooteeeful Eagle Dancer Ranch in Boerne, Texas. YOU GUYS. The ranch is incredible. If you’re still searching for a wedding venue, Eagle Dancer Ranch NEEDS to be on your “to visit” list! It’s the perfect blend of Texas charm and rustic elegance (I know I sound like a brochure, but seeeriously!!) The bridal suite was one of my all-time favorites. The ceremony site looked like a post card. The reception barn has so much character (you’ll see!) Here are our favorite images from Rachel + Ben’s Eagle Dancer Ranch wedding. Enjoy!
