Tears filled her eyes. It was the very first time she caught a glimpse of herself that day. There in her dress, on her wedding day, finally a bride. And they weren’t tears of sadness or the kind that come just because. They were the very best kind. The kind that come when you just feel so much happy, the tears seem like the only way to get it out.
Later in that afternoon those same very-best-kind of tears filled his eyes. It was the first time he was seeing her. There, in the dress he had only ever imagined her in, as his bride. And they stood together that day, holding hands and facing each other, full of so much happy together. Because when you’re marrying the one who makes your soul complete, that’s the only way to feel . . . .

Ryan and David are married! They had a beautiful ceremony at the ever so adorable Andrews Memorial Chapel followed by a warmly lit reception at the Safety Harbor Resort. I absolutely loved how the muted colors of the day complemented Ryan’s stunning dress, and gave everything such a timeless, classic feel. The reception centerpieces included hanging candles and bottles of wine, which a lucky guest at each table got to take home. And speaking of taking things home, how cute are their little succulent favors? I am pretty much OBSESSED with all things involving succulents right now, and couldn’t get enough of these guys in their adorable containers!
It was no secret after their super fun engagement session that we adored Ryan and David, and their closest friends were every bit as amazing. We had so, so much fun with this group (as one would expect when you see pictures involving pants down 😉 and couldn’t have been happier to be a part of this day!
Ryan and David, thank you for yet another amazing day with you guys! We just love you two to bits and know that life has so many amazing things in store for you both! See you soon for a married people double date! xox
