Rachel and Jacob met when they were freshman at Western Kentucky University in the fall of 2011. Both Honors College students, they lived in the same dorm and had mutual friends. It wasn’t until the following year that their shared love of The Walking Dead, live music, and Hilltopper sports brought them closer together. Jacob finally won Rachel over after surprising her with a trip to Nashville just so she could eat dinner at her favorite restaurant, Qdoba- and they’ve been together ever since.
In the summer of 2016, Jacob took Rachel back to WKU’s Hilltop and proposed in front of Henry Hardin Cherry Hall, where they both studied to earn their degrees in History and English. They married on June 30, 2017, and strive every day to see the “greater heights” described in the song they danced to that night.
I had such a great day with Rachel, Jacob and all of their closest friends and family. Thank you both for allowing R.T. Photography to be a part of your day together and capture all your great moments together.
