I first met Rachel over 15 years ago at a dance because she made a comment about my hair, which is the same colour and texture as hers. We became fast friends and she even introduced me to Janette, who was her Maid of Honour and my photography associate for many years. Rachel dated extensively, but it wasn’t until she met Jay that she was ready to make that final commitment.
She was single for awhile, and some friends joked with her that she should go downstairs to the barber shop (which she lived above) and meet a man there. That was how she met Jay.
We were all thrilled for Rachel when Jay proposed.
He is quiet most of the time, but when the party starts, he is in the middle of it. Rachel needs someone who can listen well and keep up with her and she found that in Jay.
Congratulations, Jay and Rachel!
