Rachel + Nick’s ceremony at St Francis of Assisi Catholic Church and reception at the Des Moines Golf & Country Club brought Rachel’s childhood front and center for their wedding. “St. Francis was the church that I grew up in and Nick was gracious enough to agree to start our married life there. Des Moines Golf & Country Club always has a great attention to detail, and the grounds are already so manicured, so we knew the location wouldn’t need much extra decor outside of the ballroom. The food is always sublime, and Nick’s family has a lot of allergies. The chef was incredibly attentive and worked very closely with us to ensure that everyone would be able to eat something delicious,” Rachel told us.
The pair met at Creighton University for undergrad, and Nick went to pharmacy school there, Rachel went to University of Iowa for medical school, and then Rachel moved back to Omaha for her pediatrics residency. Nick moved to Ann Arbor for a pharmacy residency. They’re finally together again after 6 years of distance. Rachel has been busy finishing up her residency, starting her job as a pediatrician, and taking her pediatric board exam, so wedding planning took a backseat for a bit. You would never know it for how smooth their day went and how amazing the details were.
