This garden engagement session was GORGEOUS ya’ll!!! I remember sitting on Facetime with Rachel, she was at work, on her lunch with earphones on. We sat for almost an hour, talking nothing but wedding goodness, constantly laughing. I was afraid she would literally get in trouble at her desk! She was this pretty redhead and had Virginia Tech running through her blood. Kris and her both are alumni and it was only fitting during their one of MANY MANY games, Kris managed to get Rachel on the field before a game and propose. YES…. Their names were on the Megatron of Lane Stadium, the Hokie Bird even made an appearance!! Which I hear is a hard thing to get done!!! (Kris– I know you scored some major points with Rachel for this!!!) I feel like I’ve learned sooo much about Virginia Tech over the last 8 years. Having personal friends that are alumni and then hanging with these two love birds I feel like I’m an Enter Sandman knowing kinda wanna be Hokie!!! Did you know that there are 4 people that are elected to be “Hokie Birds” yet they are sworn to secrecy and can’t tell people that’s them until they graduate??? ANND….. they only way they can disclose they are the Hokie Bird is they get to wear their feet when they graduate!!! How AWESOME is that???
I just loved spending time with Rachel and Kris. We hung out for an hour in Portsmouth at the Anderson Wright Room & Garden. It was perfect! We laughed and caught up on their November wedding at the Portsmouth Woman’s Club and swooned over how amazing Kelly Gish is (We love you Kelly!!!) and really had the best time!! Her classic wedding will be one for the books for sure… and she chose the BEST month of the year if I don’t say so myself… it’s my BIRTHDAY month!!!!
