Rachel and Rob met through a mutual friend. Almost a year later to the day, Rob proposed to Rachel in the quiet and intimate setting of the home they share together in New York City. I got to know the couple this past summer on a trip up to New York where we spent a whirlwind of an afternoon bouncing around their hometown neighborhood together. I got to meet their adorable mini Schnauzer, Whinnie, who sadly couldn’t make it to the wedding and had to stay home. Rachel says one of the things she loves the most about Rob is that he’s the kindest person she’s ever met…I think him “adopting” Whinnie and taking care of her, even though she was Rachel’s dog first and even though Rob claims he’s not a dog person, is just one example of why Rachel fell in love with Rob.
The couple got married this past fall on a windy fall day in downtown DC at the gorgeous Mandarin Oriental. Rachel and Rob were rockstars and braved the chilly wind and crowds at the Jefferson Memorial as the sun went down just before they signed their Ketubah and were married under a Huppah constructed from material of the wedding dresses of all of the special women in Rachel’s life. It was, hands down, the most beautiful Huppah I’ve ever seen and something I know Rachel will cherish forever. Congrats you two!!
