Rachel and Alex Wedding – Courtyard Marriott


Rachel and Alex hosted their beautiful wedding on June 26, 2021. The ceremony was held at Trinity Lutheran Church and the reception was held at the Courtyard Marriott! This wedding was nothing short of romantic. We are in love with how their photos turned out and are so excited to share their beautiful wedding story.

Their Story

Alex and Rachel met as sophomores at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa in 2014. Alex had joined the Phi Delta Chi professional pharmacy fraternity his freshman year, and when Rachel joined at the beginning of the following school year, we quickly became friends. After getting to know each other at chapter meetings and study groups, they soon realized they had so much in common and started spending more time together just the two of them. They both bonded over their love of puzzles and board games. Rachel made it her mission to catch him up on all the Disney movies he hadn’t seen yet before they left Drake for winter break. On break, they Facetimed almost every night and became an official couple in January of 2015. Six and a half years later, Rachel and Alex got married on June 26th, 2021 in Columbia, MO. They now spend their time with their two cats, Meeko and Suki, and enjoy playing ultimate frisbee.
