Sometimes your friends just know you better than you know yourself, whether you’re willing to admit it or not! For Rayna & Roderick, that was absolutely the case! Long before Shawna Hinkel Photography had the opportunity to capture their wedding day, a couple of friends set them up on a group date for happy hour. Everyone had a good time, but Rayna & Roderick didn’t exchange numbers, and went about their way. Well, their friends just couldn’t have that, and about a week after the date, numbers were exchanged. They went on a couple more dates, with Rayna’s daughter, Kamryn, and then it all fizzled out for about six months. Roderick asked Rayna & Kamryn out on a dinner date, and the rest, as they say, is history! Clearly, their friends knew what they were doing, and over five years after the fact, Rayna & Roderick – and Kamryn! – came together in front of their friends, family, and Shawna Hinkel Photography to tie the knot!
