JOY: Serafino & Rachel’s Wedding


Serafino & Rachel’s Wedding

*** begin quote ***

Rachel grew up in Claverack, NY, a town in Columbia County. She has an older brother, Billy, who lives in Vermont with his wife, Rachel. Growing up in a small town has led Rachel to Manhattan where the pace is a lot different! In 2009, she graduated from Manhattan College with her best friend, Katie. Since then, she has lived in NYC and can’t see herself anywhere else! However, as her parents still live in Claverack, she will escape there to enjoy some quieter weekends from time to time.

Rachel works at Hudson Valley Bank as an Human Resources Generalist. When she’s not at work, she enjoys spending time with Serafino and their friends who live close by. She loves hosting friends at their apartment, while baking and cooking endless amounts of food for them. She also enjoys staying active through running outside when it is nice out and walking around the city exploring different neighborhoods with Serafino.
