Kayla and Josh's wedding was filled with surprises around every corner.
Formula For Love: A Rustic Wedding at Creekside Farm
WEDDING: August 8, 2020
For Rachel Dvorak and Evan Hesse, it was all about chemistry—literally. The two met during their sophomore year in chemistry class at Augsburg University. After three years of dating, the couple’s love of travel took them to Colombia in 2018, where they made friends with an Irish woman who—unbeknownst to Rachel—played a role in Evan’s proposal. When they visited her in Dublin, she took them to some of her favorite spots. “We were climbing around a waterfall, and the next thing I know, Evan was proposing!” says Rachel. Because of the pandemic, some of the guests—as well as the photographer and the best man—couldn’t attend. But the photographer found replacements and the best man made a video for the reception that “turned out to be more emotional than anyone expected, and it’s something we’ll always remember.” The couple kept their colors on the neutral side because the venue itself was so lovely. There were so many special moments, Rachel says, that it was hard to process them all until the next day. “I’m thankful that Evan and I took time to sit on the balcony during the reception and watch everything that was happening below us.”
