Rachel Cohen & Daniel Grey

Rachel Cohen met Daniel Grey online and agreed to see him in person at Mission, a Dupont Circle favorite in Washington, D.C., the city where her parents had their own first date 35 years earlier. Despite their differing opinions over who killed JFK, the pair connected easily and quickly in conversation about family and careers. After four years of dating, following a dinner at the Ritz Carlton in McClean, VA, Daniel proposed to Rachel in a room brimming with candles and rose petals.

The couple married at Rockrimmon Country Club in Stamford on an intensely rainy October Saturday. During his speech, the bride’s father, Stephen, reminded guests that wedding day rain is a sign of good luck in many cultures, and is said to cleanse a path to a bright, strong future. The newlyweds went to Hawaii for a sunnier honeymoon.

The bride, daughter of Lynn Villency Cohen and Stephen Cohen, graduated from the King School and received her undergraduate degree from Colgate University and her JD from George Washington University. She is an attorney at Guidepost Strategies in Washington, D.C.

The groom, son of Michelle and Mitchell Grey of Atlanta, GA, earned his undergraduate degree from Washington University. He works in policy and government affairs.
