I had the privilege of meeting up with Jake & Rachel the morning after West Point's Class of 2017 graduated. We started our cloudy morning at Redoubt Four, overlooking campus and it felt symbolic almost. They weathered all four years of West Point together (not an easy feat, ask me how I know. HA.) and this morning they were on the cusp of their future together, reflecting on how far they've come the past four years. Rachel still has a year left of school, but they have the most exciting summer to look forward to, and a wedding to plan!
Rachel's smile and easy laugh were so pure, and the way Jake looked at her gave ME butterflies, good grief. They were comfortable and laid-back, playful but passionate. They had a calmness about them, and I felt like I was hanging out with old friends.
I hope you can feel the sweetness and absolute adoration between these two, because it was so very apparent.
