Patti Stanger herself couldn't have picked a better pair. "Celebrating my 20th Anniversary of my first date with @Rbermanus," Rachel Zoe gushed on Twitter yesterday, sharing a picture of herself sitting sweetly on hubby Rodger Berman's lap at an outdoor restaurant.
How else did the celebrity stylist document the happy milestone? With a flashy accessory, of course. "Nothing like another piece of Cartier LOVE for my @rbermanus! XoRZ," the new mama tweeted her followers, along with a photo of her baby daddy showing off his new ring.
Two decades later, Rodger's the president of Rachel Zoe, Inc., though he still clearly remembers the day he met his lady love in the summer of 1991. "She was 19, and I was 22. She was a restaurant hostess, and I was working as a waiter in Washington, D.C., where we both attended college," he writes in Harper's Bazaar. "I vividly remember the first time I saw her, wearing a tight black minidress, high-heeled pumps, stick-straight hair, and big red lips covered in M.A.C. Chili lipstick (her trademark). She was the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen. I quickly learned that she also had more clothes than any woman I had ever seen. I often wondered if she'd ever do an outfit change mid-date."
Seven years later, the couple made it official and Rodg says his blushing bride "wore a custom Isaac Mizrahi dress — a white replica of his red version worn by Amber Valletta on a magazine cover. Who knew a bride could walk down the aisle so gracefully in six-inch heels?"
Watch Rachel and Rodger face parenthood for the first time when The Rachel Zoe Project returns September 6.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY RACHEL & RODGER! Thankyou so much for a really wonderful show, last season I was doing Chemo & Radiation and your show really brightened my day even the nauseating sick days didn't seem so bad. I learned so much about fashion & accessorizing and I'm 44 but rocking some awesome, cute outfits after getting so many tips from your show! Can't wait for the new season to begin and to see your beautiful new baby boy!
Sincerely, Colleen Carey
Very cuite couple who seem to enjoy each others company and love and respect each other. Looking forward to the new season.
