Have you ever answered a question before it was asked? Rachel, a pretty brunette surgery coordinator, did! And it was about the most important question of her life. It came from Spencer, the salesman she had been dating for two years.
Although Rachel and Spencer attended the same Nebraska high school, there were several years separating them and perhaps that is why they didn’t begin dating then. It was in March of 2016 that the two finally began a relationship. But it didn’t take too long for Spencer to realize this was the girl for him.
One January day in 2018 they were in South Carolina and decided to go down to the beach. It was a cold day, and few people were around. Rachel was surprised when Spencer suddenly asked an older man if he would take a picture of the two of them. After a couple of shots, the man was getting ready to hand Spencer’s phone back to him when Spencer said, “One more picture, please.”
“He got down on one knee, but he didn't even get to say a word. I just started saying, ‘Yes, yes, yes!’” Rachel said. “Now he jokes that it was just a promise ring and not actually an engagement ring,” she added with a laugh.
The couple were married Aug. 24, 2019, in a beautiful ceremony at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Columbus. The reception was held at the American Legion.
While they have enjoyed living on the east coast for over a year, they plan on moving back to Nebraska to settle down and start a family since that is where both of them are from.
“We love to be outside finding new things to do or just sitting on the couch all day. There is never a dull moment for us,” Rachel said. “We are excited to see what the future brings.”
The future that started with a very excited “Yes, yes, yes!”
