Country Club of the South Wedding

Ah, these two!! What an incredible day! I was in heaven capturing it! Truly, they can’t get enough of each other and I tell you… it is so precious! I could see that twinkle between them all day, but my favorite was seeing them steal away together several times at the reception…just for a few moments, but they would be cuddling outside beaming with smiles and laughter and delight like two kids in love! Because they are ; ) The story of how they met and got engaged is just as cute, so I wanted to share it here from the bride:

“Ryan and I have a unique story! He is from a small town, Katy Texas and I grew up in Atlanta. He is 2 years older but we both attended a nationwide high school trip where select schools from all over the country fly to Washington, D.C. for a week to explore the museums and meet new people. Our trip happened to fall on the first inauguration of President Obama (we did not know at the time we booked who was going to be president). So, in 2009, Ryan happened to room with a friend and then 2 guys that went to my high school, and I roomed with my friend and 2 girls that went to his high school. We hung out in the same circle for the week. We went our separate ways and thanks to Facebook, all kept in touch. Ryan and I remained friends until about October of that year, constantly keeping in touch and getting to know each other. Our families got to meet for the first time summer of 2009 in Rosemary Beach, Florida. Ryan and I kept a long distance relationship for about 4 years. He went to Texas A&M and I went to Ole Miss. After 2 years at Ole Miss, I decided to enroll at A&M and end the long distance. Ryan stayed for a bit longer in College Station and received his masters in 2014 while I finished school in December of 2015. After many flights back and forth, and lots of effort and patience, we overcame long distance and were so happy to be in the same state! November of 2015, Ryan decided to spend the week with me and my family in Atlanta. 2 days before thanksgiving, I was out catching up on appointments and errands all day, as well as meeting up with friends (who were in on the surprise). Ryan and my dad spent all day stringing lights outside in a little pavilion we have in the backyard. He bought dozens of roses and they strung pictures of our relationship. Candles were lit and nerves were shaking. I came back around 5 that evening with ryan standing in my entryway. He took me by the hand (after I asked what was going on like 5 times!) and lead me outside where I was greeted by a photographer and a lit pathway to the pavilion my family had worked so hard on. With family peering through the kitchen window, ryan hugged me tight, talked to me for a bit, then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!!!! Of course I said yes right away! I can’t wait to marry this amazing and wonderful man! :)”
