Rachel’s future husband, Ian, proposed to her at 6 a.m. on Valentine’s Day. He had been holding onto the ring for two weeks and he couldn’t fall back asleep that morning. Ian gave Rachel a long-stemmed red rose with an engagement ring attached to its stem. Once she accepted, he peacefully fell back asleep with Rachel in his arms.
Their outdoor, west coast-themed wedding was held on May 14, 2011 at the Long Beach Lodge Resort in Tofino, B.C. They had a small, intimate wedding with only 20 guests, and both agree that being surrounded by their closest family and friends were their best moments.
Rachel and Ian chose All The Way by Frank Sinatra as their wedding song because they both love his music.
