Wedding Wednesday: Rachel & Chris

By sdwedding
5/28/2015  | US Grant Hotel

Chris and Rachel were set up through friends about 2 and a 1/2 years ago. From their first date in Little Italy to their engagement in March of 2014, they have shared so many happy memories! They love sports, traveling, and their families and friends! They consider themselves blessed to have found one another. They are each other’s partner in crime, and they have fun, no matter what they are doing! They are looking forward to traveling Europe next summer and to starting a family soon! The couple can, truly, say that their wedding day was the happiest, most fun day of their lives! Actually, everything leading up to the “big day” was so fun! The planning, the showers, the bridal luncheon, and even just getting ready…They would happily do it all again! Having an amazing set of vendors was key in the day being low stress, happy, and fun! The wedding planner, Trena Lozano [and her team] were instrumental in making Rachel’s dream of a vintage fairy tale wedding come true! The florist, Annette Gomez, was also a key part of bringing that vision to life! The U.S. Grant is incredibly beautiful on its own. Truly, that pre-existing decor was the inspiration for their wedding. Every vendor understood their vision and helped make the day flawless for the couple. From the vintage twist on the candy bar, to the chalkboard photo booth, they had the wedding of their dreams- truly, a vintage fairytale! Along with the beauty of the venue, tables, decor, etc., the couple thinks everyone had a great time, which was VERY important to them! They served champagne at the ceremony, had the U.S. Grant’s special Centennial Manhattans at the cocktail hour, and they had the most amazing band! They had incredible energy and were such a talented, fun set of performers. Honestly, the two couldn’t stop smiling, and now, when they look back at the day,tehy can’t stop smiling either! Truly, it was the best day ever!
