Rachel and Blair first met in college, but reconnected years later. When it came time propose, Blair arranged a weekend getaway to a cabin in the mountains where he was planning to pop the question. Unfortunately, a jeweler that Blair did not actually purchase a ring from sent a “we’re sorry you didn’t go with us this time, but we hope you come back in the future” card in the mail. Rachel, who never checked the mail, decided that was a good day to start. When it was finally revealed that the jig was up, Blair made some changes in the eleventh hour to keep the element of surprise. On a low-key evening at home, Blair proposed on the anniversary of the day they rekindled their relationship — a few weeks before the cabin trip. Rachel was indeed surprised. It was perfect! The couple celebrated their nuptials with a brunch wedding at Barr Mansion on July 15, 2017.
