“It went by so fast,” says Rachel of their nuptials. “But it was a really beautiful experience. I remember walking down the aisle with my dad and I told him to walk slowly. I just stared at Bryan the entire time. He was my focus.”

Now, they’re looking forward to a joyful future — babies and all.

“I think about us 40 years from now just being together and making each other laugh,” says Rachel. “I think that’s what it’s all about.”
