Hi, I'm Lydia

JOKES ON JOKES ON JOKES. That’s how I would describe Rachel and Todd’s wedding. Some weddings feel pretty formal and serious, but I knew as soon as I saw Rachel slip into tennis shoes with her wedding dress that it was going to be a fun, playful day. Everyone from the officiant to the bridal party loved a good joke. Rachel’s Maid of Honor’s speech was hysterical and involved jokes about anxiety, singing God Bless America, and funny movie quotes and even Rachel’s childhood nickname— Rachel Christinie Weenie

Todd and Rachel probably get the award for most laid-back couple of 2020 and that is certainly a good quality to have when you’re planning a wedding during a pandemic! I tried to show of their care-free, fun-loving vibe in their film and even included a blooper at then end

It was a pleasure getting to know you both! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Pudding Pack!
