This day was a very anticipated one. Rachel and Ian are first and foremost, best friends. The amount of times I saw them laugh together on their wedding day was countless, and so were the amount of times their love brought me to tears.
Through college, mutual friends, and years of friendship, the timing was finally right for them. You’ll hear it in all the toasts from people who’ve known them for years; these two are perfect for each other. Rachel is so thoughtful, sweet, intelligent and wonderful to be around. Ian is caring, witty, charming and I simply turn to mush watching him look at Rachel. They share a love of beautiful writing, travel, Kierkegaard and having friends over for dinner. They’re the kind of people you want to be around as often as you can, because you know you’re in the presence of two very genuine souls, and a very real love.
Rachel’s family home was thoughtfully turned into their wedding venue, where they said their vows, celebrated with friends and family from far and wide, and we danced long into the night. We all stuck around through breakfast the next morning under the same tent we where we spent all those late hours dancing. It was amazing to physically witness how loved these two are, and I felt so lucky to be there.
