Billy & I met in 2006. Billy & my brother Marc were sharing a house together and I bumped into Billy one weekend, and I fell for him straight away. We dated, and loved to watch horror movies together. We moved in together after a few months. And not long after that we moved to London together. Billy loved London - I didn't. So we moved home! That was 10 years ago. Since then we have had two children. Numerous homes, jobs, holidays, ups & downs. But we are best friends and stick together "always and in all ways" (thanks Ryan Serhant - from Million Dollar Listing NY for our favourite quote of all time lol)
Our look came together quite simply, I knew the type of dress I wanted and found it quickly enough although it blew the budget out of the water. It's a Yolan Cris gown made in Barcelona. Billy's suit is Hugo Boss - his favourite designer. His hat was to shade him from the sun but finished his outfit of amazingly well. My flower garland and bouquet were made by my bridesmaid on the morning of the wedding. We went to Elan Flowers in TriBeCA on the morning of the wedding to buy the flowers and the florist there was so helpful.
We chose to marry in NYC because we love it there. If we could stay forever we would. For us Jefferson Market Garden looked like a corner of heaven in the middle of NYC. There was no other place we would have wanted to get married.
Our wedding day could not have been any better. It really surpassed all of our expectations by a thousand miles! - Rachel
