The couple worked together at Abercrombie & Fitch and Andrew was actually Rachel’s manager there. When they first met, they flirted quite a bit at work. They just clicked off the bat, which I love.
When I asked Rachel how Andrew proposed, she said, “Andrew took me to Chicago for a weekend getaway. He surprised me by getting us a room at the Trump Tower. After a really nice dinner out, we came back to our hotel room, where he had candles set up around the room overlooking the river. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.” That is so adorable!
The couple had an elegant wedding at Toledo Country Club overlooking the river. They wanted a classy and atrium feel to their wedding day and the colors they chose were gold and navy. It all looked absolutely stunning inside the Toledo wedding venue.
Family was such an important part of Rachel and Andrew’s day. Rachel’s mom was there every step of the way while she got ready, popped some champagne, and got into her dress. Friends and family were there for her to support her as she got ready and was getting ready to walk down the aisle. Andrew’s mom even helped Rachel get into her dress as well. It was so nice seeing everyone come together and be there for such an amazing couple.
