Meet Rachel and Charles | A Virginia Tech Love Story
This week we are heading down to North Carolina to celebrate Rachel and Charles. We first met these two love birds at Korey and Grahams wedding in 2017! Rachel was a bridesmaid and Charles, of course was a groomsman! We just love having Night and Daye Events legacies!
Rachel and Charles have lived in Charlotte, NC for the past three years, but love cheering on the Hokies from afar. They met while attending Virginia Tech their freshman year at a Halloween party (Rachel’s favorite holiday!). Rachel says she immediately felt connected to Charles, but he thought she was out of his league! He did pursue her for six months, however, before she finally agreed to a first date. In fact, during this time, they sat next to each other in an Econ class where they played screen snake together on Charles' Apple computer. They both still passed the class!
They say they love adventure and exploring, which is no surprise as their favorite date night is testing out a new restaurant, trying out some new activity like an escape room or a candle bar, before stopping for dessert on the way back home.
Charles proposed at the Don Cesar hotel in St Pete Beach, FL, with Rachel’s parents there as a surprise. Unfortunately it was a rainy day and his original plans had to change but it was perfect.
We know their wedding day will be just as perfect and we cant wait to share more details with you soon!
