TJ & Rachel


About TJ & Rachel:

“Met in February 2019, survived a pandemic together, got engaged in March 2022 and married October 2023. Parents of two 2 year old rambunctious bulldogs, Roxy and Remy and 2 cats (6 & 19), Vino and Precious. Our wedding day turned out so perfect and we couldn’t have asked for anything better. The most special part was my 102 year old grandfather got to walk me down the aisle! We loved working with James & Sons and Donna since we picked out my engagement ring! We came to James & Sons because you were local and sold Tacori (the brand of ring I’ve dreamed of having) but chose to do business there because of Donna!”
