In case you forget Rachel and Pat's story, let me recap it for you: They both traveled (separately) to the Kentucky Derby from Cleveland and met for the first time while surrounded by hats, bow ties, and lots of horses. Crazy, right? It's kinda unbelievable that they had mutual friends, had never met before and say they "probably never would have met otherwise."
I've admittedly only known these two together, but I can't imagine either with anyone else. They're both so selfless, generous and extremely thoughtful. They both constantly have smiles on their faces and are so sweet with each other and everyone around them. And I don't think it's coincidence that their families are equally as great. I loved photographing this summer vineyard wedding. Rachel and Pat, you guys are the best. For real.
