Our Story

Rachel and Craig met at a wedding in San Diego, where Rachel lived. They instantly bonded over fantasy football and kept their sports talk going via text after Craig returned home to Illinois. Long-distance texts turned into vacations together, and eventually Rachel left California to start a new life on the farm in Illinois with Craig and Lily the dog. A kitten they named Don Henley, showed up on the farm a month later to round out the household.

About four years later…

September 8, 2018 was a fun-filled day. That morning, they did a team mini-triathlon together along the Hennepin Canal. That evening, they went to see Dawes, Rachel’s favorite band, at Codfish Hollow, an enchanting barn in Iowa. Craig proposed during set break, while they were lying out on the lawn, looking up at the stars.


We met at a wedding and will now have a wedding of our own! Hope you can join us as we say “I do” at another charming barn in Iowa.
