Rachael Sense

Hi! I'm Rachael and I am SO happy you've found yourself wanting to know a little more about myself. I was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. I am married to my wonderful husband Matthew, and we have two beautiful children - Adeline (6) and Hayden (2). We love to spend time together traveling, going to the drive-in, or playing board games. We spend as many weekends as we can traveling to Orlando, to use our passes to Universal! Naturally, I love hosting family and friends regularly and love throwing a great get together. When I'm not working or chasing kids around I like to binge watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S and sip on a glass of wine or a big thing of milk and cookies. 

Ok - enough about me, let's get to know you

Hi! My name is Brooke and I was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio where I currently live. I married the love of my life, Coleman in August of 2022 and we have 1 fur baby Shiba Inu named Willow! We spend most of our time doing different outdoor activities like hiking, biking, camping, and kayaking in the warmer months and skiing and snowboarding in the colder months. We also love to play a good board game like Catan or Betrayal if we decide to stay in. We LOVE to travel any go on about 4 of 5 different trips every year whether out of state or out of the country. Some of my favorite locations I’ve been to so far include: Palm Springs, California, Las Vegas, the Bahamas, and Ireland! I spend any other free time I have with family and friends and love to be social and go out any chance I get!

"Without a doubt, Rachael is the best vendor that we booked for our wedding. From the very moment we booked with her a year prior to our wedding, she was so responsive… almost within minutes. She was constantly reassuring and never once made me feel like I was a burden or asked too many questions. She makes the impossible possible. Her and Brooke executed our wedding day so perfectly. I was literally blown away. They took our vision and made everything next level. Rachael constantly exuded the most positive and reassuring attitude that I have ever seen every step of the way. I could go on and on. It would not have been possible without her. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!" - Melisssa + Gunnar
