I was back at the Hotel Lafayette on September 9th for the magical event that was Rachel and Teddy’s wedding. Two beautiful humans that couldn’t love anything more than they love each other (except probably dental health since they are both dental professionals). When I first arrived everyone was very excited that the ceremony would be starting soon. Their reception room looked so beautiful and I couldn’t help but laugh at their happy teeth cake topper and that for one of their favors, they were giving away the toothbrush and toothpaste baggie that you get when you go to the dentist. Even as I typed that I started laughing. Rachel looked incredibly beautiful and while Teddy seemed a little nervous about the small details, I knew that when they came together, everything was going to be perfect.
They found their way to each other out in the courtyard and grabbed hands looking so unbelievably happy! I do have to say that out of everything, my favorite part was when Teddy started reading his vows and his hands were shaking so much! It’s hard to anticipate how much love and emotion you’ll be feeling in the moment, but it’s safe, it kind of throws you for a loop. And I always have front row seats to it which I love so much! They placed love letters that they wrote to each other in a box with a bottle of wine to enjoy on their first anniversary, and then just like that they were kissing as husband and wife! Congratulations Teddy and Rachel! You were meant to be together and I can’t help but feel that I was meant to be your officiant. I wish you nothing but the best for all of time!
