Rachel and Jon

How We Met

Jon and I met at Moccasin Creek Country Club. I signed up for golf lessons and had never swung a club in my life! Intimidating having such a polite man give me lessons. It was great to learn and I loved golf. The next summer I signed up for the next level of lessons and that is where it all began. Lessons were done and I wasn’t playing anymore. He messaged me and asked why I hadn’t been out to play and I really should. We began to talk more and more and even go on walks together because low and behold, he only lived a block away from me which I didn’t know! We have been together ever since!

How He Asked

My family vacationed to Casa Encantadora in Zihuatenjo, Mexico turned into a vacation I will never forget. We had a couple that are my parents friends along and it was her birthday so we decided to go to a beautiful restaurant for her birthday dinner. Little did I know that Jon was going to drop down on one knee as we took a photo together with the beautiful Pacific Ocean and sunset behind us. Jon was shaking and it was so hot and humid, I really thought something was wrong. Instead, he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. I will never forget the date, it was my half birthday and it will be a moment I will always cherish. Zihuatenjo, Mexico will always be one of our favorite vacations spots!
