South Houston, Texas Wedding: Rachel + Dallas / by Kelly Costello

It all began with one simple skit in 8th grade drama class. Neither Rachel or Dallas could imagine the wonderful journey that was ahead when they started dating sophomore year of High School. Dallas skipped geometry to see Rachel in her art class, they attended school dances and graduated together, and they made the choice to continue their relationship long distance.

Over the past year, so much has happened for this couple. Rachel decided to leave one of the top colleges to propel herself toward a nursing career, she will be attending UTMB Nursing this year. The two together also decided to move their wedding date 8 months forward. Rachel and Dallas know what they want and, hand in hand, make their dreams come true together.   

On a cool December day, Rachel and Dallas said their I Do's at the lovely Brazos Springs. Joined by family and friends, their love displayed for all to see... and admire. 

Rachel and Dallas, your love and kindness is truly inspiring and touches everyone you meet. You are the type of people that make the world a better place, and show us that staggering odds are just another opportunity to shine. Thank you and your families for having me for your engagements and for your first day as husband and wife. I can't wait to see what is in store for you both..XO, Kelly
