Andrew and Rachel knew each other all through high school through mutual friends, and always found themselves running with the same group even while Rachel was in college. One night the two were with a group of friends at the Huntland Tractor Pull. This was the same night Andrew kicked Rachel out of his truck…. and I wish we could say the rest was history but it wasn’t. Fast forward two years, Rachel was home from college for Christmas break when Andrew sent her a FB message wanting to “hang out and watch football”… that is when the rest was history. A few months later Andrew won Rachel’s heart over when he bought her a black lab they named Bear. After Rachel finished college the two moved in together to make sure they really could get along, lol. On March 28, 2018, while on a family trip in the Dominican with Rachel’s parents, brother, and sister-in-law, Andrew took Rachel out on the beach and got down on one knee! Two weeks later the dress was bought and venue booked! Rachel is a member of Alpha Omicron Pi and is a 6th grade math teacher, soccer coach, track coach, AND owns a Mobile “Boutique on Wheels” – Southern Sisters Boutique.
