Theirs was a relationship that could have never happened. They met at college but didn't start dating immediately due to numerous reasons, instead building a friendship over the next two years. But in the end, thanks to the help of Jake's friend, Rachel slowly began to fall for him. They finally decided to become official late one night as they spent time together by the lake on campus, and the rest is history.
Because their love story began at the University of Richmond, it was the perfect place to spend the afternoon reliving each moment, talking about what led them to this point, and looking at the future to come. At first these two were nervous that they would be awkward, but as you'll quickly see they are incredibly relaxed around each other, and naturals in front of the camera! They couldn't stop smiling and laughing, and the whole day was a beautiful reminder of the joy that got them here in the first place.
Jake and Rachel, I'm so excited for you and the next step you're about to take! Your happiness together is so very real and obvious, and I know the next few months will fly by until you're standing at Hollyfield Manor ready to say I do. I just can't wait!
