Smith Abrams Wedding

Congratulations Rachel Smith & Benjamin Abrams

photographer KIM BOVA

Since first meeting as graduate students at Washington University, Ben and Rachel felt an immediate attraction and their bonding continued to develop over their mutual love of movies, animals and classical music. Ben proposed to Rachel at the beautiful and romantic Elizabeth Park, and of course, Rachel said yes!

The bride is the daughter of Marc and Donna Smith, of Stockton, California. Rachel holds a Master of Music degree in vocal performance from the University of Northern Colorado and is currently employed at the Hartt School Community Division in West Hartford and Simsbury. She also sings opera and musical theater and teaches private voice and piano out of her West Hartford home.

The groom is the son of Ronald Abrams and Joanne Rogin-Abrams, of Minnetonka, MN. Ben holds a bachelor degree in Finance and History from the University of Minnesota and a J. D. from Washington University in St. Louis School of Law. He is employed with the Connecticut Superior Court, and is licensed to practice law in Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Their September wedding and reception took place at Beth David Synagogue in West Hartford, officiated by Rabbi Yitzchok Adler. A fun filled evening of dinner and dancing was enjoyed by all of the guests. The bride’s brother, Aaron, surprised the couple with a song he specifically composed for the occasion. The couple resides in West Hartford and plans to honeymoon in Quebec this summer.
