Though Geoff and Rachael had many of the same friends, and both attended the University of Florida, they somehow never crossed paths until Rachael's last year at UF! After being set up on a blind date (by his Big Brother in Delta Chi) and hitting it off, Geoff asked Rachael out for their first "real" date! He took her to Dragonfly restaurant and pulled out all the stops, a "Washington" bottle of wine in honor of their families and a yummy sushi dinner. As they walked out of the restaurant holding hands, they knew they were in trouble! After that Christmas (07!), they began dating and have been together ever since! A semester after they met, Rachael graduated with a degree in Marketing and moved to Tampa. 2 1/2 years of long distance began! After countless miles traveled, many car tuneups, and several phone minutes later, their relationship was still stronger than ever and they started talking about spending their lives together! (See the Proposal page next!!). Rachael knew she had finally found that perfect Gator man! (God forbid she marry a Seminole! Sorry Chris & Jess!) Geoff then also graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Human Nutrition and started planning to attend Pharmacy School. (He starts this next fall!) Now, after the perfect proposal, they are off on the new and exciting adventure of planning a wedding and their future lives together!! And they would have chosen none other than yours truly Chic Designs & Fabulous Events to assist in all of the fine details that are taking place on such a special day of their lives. Thank you Rachael & Geoff for trusting and believing in us. I am counting down the days until we head to the beautiful Casa Monica.
