We've featured several real weddings from Emily Takes Photos, and each one is gorgeous and different from the last. Rachel and Danny's wedding is no exception. From the beautiful ketubah to the yummy pie buffet (seriously, is it lunch time yet?) this wedding was elegant, refined, and the perfect example of a coastal affair.
