I was so excited for this Wedding day ya'll! Ryann booked us after chatting through emails and phone conversations due to planning from out of town--I finally got the chance to meet this sweetheart when I took boudoir pictures for her. We joked about how we were reallllly going to get to know each other the first time we met ;) She is such a beautiful person inside and out and after learning more about their fun relationship history I knew the Wedding day was going to be a blast! I was also excited because it was our first time back at the Eastern Shore Venue, previously known as Aqua which was recently re-opened and is a beaut! When we arrived all was calm, the sun was shining and it was shaping up to be a perfect day! Some huge, FUN parts of the day; first off, all the bridesmaids wore white, so different and I loved it! Secondly, Ryann opened her gift from Craig and was surprised beyond belief to learn that he bought her her dream Toyota 4Runner, customized to perfection--are you kidding me?! We all joked in the room, 'well dang, all I got was a card on my wedding day' ;) Next up, their sweet friend was ordained to marry them, you guys know I love the special significance behind that! Lastly, how can you top their ring-bearer?! The cutest dog I ever did see!!
Our loves from As You Wish Events did such a phenomenal job of making Ryann and Craig's dreams come true with set up, the perfect details and touches of whimsey. Everything ran on schedule and after their emotional (a man in uniform getting teary eyed, I can't handle it!!) 'I do's' they enjoyed a little cocktail hour before heading out for my favorite portrait time alongside the setting sun.
We love Danny from Astro who got the party started and needless to say drinks were flowing, guys were singing at the top of their lungs, even heard a few harmonicas going. Such a rambunctious fun loving crowd. I am so so happy for these two and am so excited for their journey ahead!
