Rachel + Matt: Spectacular Splendor at Cipriani 42

Every Sunday, Rachel and her friends would gather to watch The Amazing Race and draft fantasy teams. One night, Rachel’s friend Becky suggested she go out with a friend of hers from middle school, Matt.  After checking out some pictures on Facebook, Rachel gave the thumbs up!
