As I've said before, these two are both incredibly sweet as individuals and together. Unfortunately, we met due to their previous planner basically dropping off the face of the earth - this is something I NEVER want to hear. I can tell you though, this absolutely fuels my passion for the industry and to show my couples how grateful I am for them. A wedding is such an momentous occasion and even more so when you've had a two year long engagement, like Laura and Ryan. I love that they chose to go bold with their design. It allowed their personalitities to really shine through, along with so many DIY details - including individually handwritten place cards which I have a hand cramp just thinking about, haha. I can't wait to see what the future holds for these two!
Also, for your laughing pleasure this morning I have an extremely embarrassing story. Since our initial meeting, I primarily met and talked with Laura. So, when we all met up for the rehearsal I apparently had no recollection of what Ryan looked like and proceeded to introduce myself and shake his hand. You are all probably hitting your head with the palm of your hand and rightfully so! Like come on, Kaitlyn. Thankfully, he thought it was funny to and we just hugged it out. I never thought I would want to share this story, but Ive decided real life, whether it's pretty, funny or downright embarrassing is worth sharing.
Alright, friends make sure to keep scrolling to see all the beauty from Laura and Ryan's wedding along with the team who made it all possible. Happy Friday!
