31 Mar Rachelle & Andrew’s Wine & Roses Wedding
Rachelle & Andrew’s journey began in middle school, where they met each other through mutual friends. They were friends throughout high school and would often see each other outside of school at Rachelle’s uncle’s house since he lived a few doors down from Andrew and his family. During one of these visits at Rachelle’s uncles house, something changed and they’ve been together ever since!
Andrew popped the question during a trip to San Francisco the day before Christmas Eve. They were walking down the Embarcadero when they stopped under the SOMA sculpture on pier 14 with a perfect bay view, and Andrew proposed to Rachelle!
After months of planning, their wedding at Wine & Roses in Lodi finally came together! The whole wedding was elegant and refined with hints of gold and rose red throughout. Their large bridal party (10 on each side!) all looked amazing, especially the bridesmaids in their full length gowns. They definitely made a statement as they walked down the aisle at Stockton’s Cathedral of Annunciation. Rachelle looked strikingly beautiful as she made her entrance and definitely got a few tears out of Andrew! In the words of Andrew’s mom (she really did say this in her toast) “He cried a little bit. I haven’t seen that in a long time, since he was circumcised.”
Needless to say Rachelle & Andrew are surrounded by some really great family and friends all of whom we enjoyed spending the day with and who helped make Andrew & Rachelle’s day all the more special. We want to wish the very best to the new Mr. & Mrs. Manto!
