Rachel & Brian

Dating in 2018, meeting online has become more and more of a popular trend. Rachel and Brian are a couple of the many people in the world who started their love story from an online dating app. After talking and texting for awhile, the two finally decided to meet up and grab a drink for happy hour on Rainey street, a popular bar strip in Austin. They both hit it off right off the bat, laughing and talking all the way until the bars closed. It was all uphill from that day forward. After two and a half years of dating, Brian decided to take their relationship to the next level and ask the big question to the love of his life.

Brian proposed in such a romantic and intimate way and Rachel was completely surprised. Around Christmas time, the couple decided to take a romantic wine country getaway at a bed and breakfast in Wimberley, Texas. They joined five other couples for a wine tour of the venue and made fast friends. The group as a whole decided to grab supplies and grill out at the fire pit for the night. Rachel and Brian went back to their cabin to grab a bottle of wine and go back to join the rest of the crew. As they entered their cabin, there was pink moscato and chocolate cake awaiting them. Oblivious as to what was in store, Rachel assumed all these extra goodies were just apart of the package they purchased. As she was caught up in all these luxuries, she didn’t even realize Brian get down on one knee. Her head was a whirlwind and she couldn’t even remember exactly what Brian said because she was so surprised and overjoyed. Rachel, of course, said yes and returned to her newfound friends to toast to the exciting news!

The happy couple became the Houchins on May 4, 2018! Their unique boho chic style has quickly become one of the most memorable and beautiful weddings we’ve had at The Terrace Club. The vibrant colors from the floral to the ceremony fabric made this wedding an absolutely inspiration. We still get compliments on their gorgeous photos and trendy style. Absolute goals in every way!!

Our hearts swoon every time we look through the pictures from their special day. Brian and Rachel continue to live married life in Austin and we wish them nothing but well wishes and many many years of love to come!
