Idyllic Fall Wedding Day in Ridgway

March 11, 2024 BY: Bailey

“Eric and Rachael met 10 years ago when they both started working for Outback Steakhouse during college. In 2013, Eric was a junior at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee studying business and had grown up in the Milwaukee suburbs. Rachael was a freshman originally from Minnesota, who was attending the same college to play soccer and study nursing. She had worked at Outback in high school and was able to be transferred to the same store that Eric worked for in Brookfield, WI. When Rachael showed up at the Outback for the first time, Eric called “dibs” the moment she walked through the door. Unfortunately for Eric, Rachael happened to be dating someone at the time. Two years and a break up later, Eric stole Rachael’s heart with his home cooked meals, genuine kindness and an all day brunch where he knew she was the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. After five years of dating, Eric popped the question on a beautiful hike in Crested Butte, Colorado. Throughout Eric and Rachael’s relationship, they have travelled the world together, acquired two fur babies, Cleo & Sage, established chosen family and recently started living all around the country for Rachael’s job as a travel NICU nurse. They have experienced many life seasons together requiring personal reflection and growing together. Advice to couples? – Communication is everything and you tackle problems as a united force. It’s “our” problem not a “me/you” problem. Have different hobbies and spend time a part to fulfill your individual interests. When you are happy with yourself and feel confident in who you are, you have more time to invest in your partner. Always celebrate wins, big or small. In our household, that’s with Champagne! We got married on September 16th, 2023 in Ridgway, Colorado with 60 of our closest friends and family. It was the most perfect celebration of our love.”
