The day Jay first met Rachel at brunch with friends, Jay’s buddy looked over at him, saw that twinkle in his eye, and said something along the lines of, “Don’t even bother. You don’t have a chance with her!”
You see, Jay and Rachel were somewhat of an unlikely match – they admit that even though they went to the same college, they definitely did NOT run in the same crowd.
But after spending a day together? Jay was completely smitten with this beautiful, graceful, intelligent girl. So after about two months of persistence on Jay’s part, he got that gorgeous girl on a date.
And in all the ways Rachel never expected, Jay’s persistent pursuit impressed her and won her heart. In Jay, she’s found someone who makes her come alive with laughter, and together they make such a lovely pair!
Jay and Rachel said “I do” at Rancho Bernardo Inn, and spent every second of their day soaking in alllll the feels. In every moment, they remained emotionally present, honoring each other and the legacy of love that came before them.
And they weren’t the only ones soaking in the emotions… Jeff and I were a bucket of tears as we captured their powerful Ketubah signing, especially as Jay’s father gave his son a special blessing. There was so much rich tradition tied into their day!
I can’t wait to share this one with you, friends! It’s a special one!
Don’t these two just warm your heart? We’ll be back tomorrow with more moments from their Rancho Bernardo Inn reception… and it’s going to be GORGEOUS, my friends!!
