Rachel & John | Engaged

We have taken pictures of this sweet couple before, but this time it was different.  They are getting MARRIED!  And I seriously could not be more excited for them.  I met Rachel about 5 years ago.  We were starting our teaching career at the same school and were at orientation together.  We went out to lunch together, at my all-time favorite lunch place (so pretty much instant friends).. and she told me she was going to stay at a hotel until she found a place in Newport News.  I had just bought a place, and it was COMPLETELY empty, but I had room, so I insisted she stay with me.  And so we became roomies.  And then the following year I was moved to teach third grade, so we became teammates.

Skip forward a few years and I get a call from Rachel.  I saw her name on my phone and I looked up at Michael and I said.. Oh my goodness.. she is engaged!  I knew she and John were going up to Winchester for the Apple Blossom Festival, one of Rachel’s favorite weekends.. and I just thought that would be the perfect place to propose.  I picked up the phone, and sure enough.. this sweet girl is getting MARRIED (nice job, John!).  And I get to be a bridesmaid!  Friend, roomie, teammate, and now BRIDESMAID!!! I am just so unbelievably happy for you two, and can’t wait to stand beside you while you marry the man of your dreams.  Love you both!

You guys, it was like 97 degrees for this session.  In Newport News, so just think about the humidity.. could you even tell?!  These guys are troopers!  So I decided we should go to Ritas afterwards!  Thanks for the Mango Misto, John!!!
