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 and currently reside in Kettering. I am married to my wonderful husband Matthew, and we have two beautiful children - Adeline (5) and Hayden (1). We love to spend time together traveling, going to the drive-in, or playing board games. 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.

QUICK Facts About Rachael

I spend all my free time with my family consisting of my husband Matthew our five year old daughter Adeline, and youngest son Hayden.

I have two dogs and two cats. My house is never clean but it's the price you pay for filling it with love.

Below is one of the only decent wedding photos we got as a family of four. We got married on a cruise on embarkation day and then traveled for a week with our families.

Coffee is my best friend. I will take a cup of coffee day or night, Iced or hot.

I love spending time outside disc golfing, skiing, or taking Adeline & Hayden to the park.

Traveling is another passion. If I don't have plans for my next vacation already set, you can bet I'm looking for my next week long stay away from Ohio. 

I love a classic game night and am always open to playing new games. My favorite games are Catan, Phase 10, and Codenames

Ok - Enough about me - Let's get to know you!


"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
