Introducing Rachel

Rachel. Is. Amazing. That pretty much sums up how I feel about our very first team member. She’s a jack of all trades. Marketing? Check. Photography? Check. Being awesome? Double Check! And not only does she bring all of that to the table, she’s also one of the most cheerful and kind hearted people I’ve ever met. So without further adieu, ladies (and gentlemen)…meet Rachel!

What’s your favorite color? 

My all time FAV is navy! But my heart will always belong to sparkle. 

What’s your favorite food? 

What isn’t my favorite food? If I have to choose a favorite it would be deep dish pizza.

Do you have any animals?

Yes! I have a 10 year old lab/pitbull mix and he is my precious baby. 

Are you married?

To my absolute best friend in the entire world! We started dating my Freshman year of high school and have been together ever since. 

What did your wedding dress look like?

Strapless was ALL the rage when I got married. If you wore sleeves you pretty much were old school. It was a ball gown, super poofy, super sparkly and super white. There would be so much I would change in this day in age! 

What is your dream vacation?

It would be two months of traveling to many different countries, experiencing their culture and site seeing. I want to see so much before I die! 

What do you do when you’re not working at IVY?

I am the owner of photographer/entrepreneur! I love spending time with my friends and family and I also love binge watching Netflix and eating junk food in the winter time. 

What do you like most about working in the wedding industry?

I LOVE LOVE! I get so excited hearing proposal stories, the dreams each couple has for their life together, I enjoy the girly aspects that include dresses, accessories, etc.. I also love getting to be there to watch a girl choose her dress that she marries her lover in, and I also love getting a chance to be the one to document the day that provides memories for the future. 

Do you have a favorite dress at IVY?

Definitely. Its either Dori or Dani in Ivory. It reminds me of what I wore on my wedding day but poofier!! 

What’s your favorite holiday and why?

CHRISTMAS! I could make a huge list of reasons why I love Christmas but I love what the holiday stands for along with the decorations, cookies, gatherings, sparkles, an excuse to wear sparkles, giving gifts to my friends and family, getting gifts from my friends and family 😉
