Rachel & Michael | Grafton, Vermont

Rachel and Michael met in Cape Town, South Africa, while on a study abroad program in law school. Rachel had almost decided to not attend the program as her father had passed away right before she left. Her family and friends encouraged her to go, despite her sadness, and now she is ever so grateful she did. Fate would have it that the two would meet and, within days, they were inseperable. They studied together, explored the country together - even dove with great white shark together! They enjoyed the trip so much that they decided to extend it, renting a car and driving along the South African coast. Eventually the day came that they had to return to their respective law schools, which were far apart in different cities. But they were determined to make the long distance work and many plane trips, phone calls, and emails later - they were finally ready to tie the knot. Because their relationship had been scattered across the country, it only made sense to Rachel and Micael that they should have a destination wedding - in Vermont!
