Rachel and Brandon’s wedding day was simple incredible. I said it more than once the day-of – everything went perfectly. Because they live in NYC, I didn’t have a chance to meet them leading up to the wedding, but when I finally did, they both embraced me with warm hugs and excitement. They are so sweet and loving and I couldn’t have been more excited to be there on their big day.
Rachel & Brandon met in high school while on vacation with their families. It was the days before Facebook, so as various social media platforms came and went (AIM, anyone!?), they kept in touch over the years. They finally made it official years later as Rachel was finishing college, and after 7 years together a series of special events kept leading Rachel to believe Brandon was going to propose (including a two week trip to Europe and a beautiful stroll through Central Park). Instead, a few weeks later, at dinner overlooking Central Park, Brandon popped the question. Rachel later found out that he had the ring in Europe and the day they went strolling in Central Park, but Brandon wanted the perfect moment! Loved getting to know this amazing couple and I’m so excited to share their big day at the Hilton Netherland Plaza!
