Interview with our fabulous bride:

HOW DID YOU MEET?
While in NYC, I lived with an amazing FSU alum named Betsy. Betsy happened to have a very tall and attractive older brother named Drew… and well, the rest is history!

HOW DID YOUR HUSBAND POP THE QUESTION?
On an amazing Spring Break trip to Los Angeles, we went to Runyon Canyon Park for a morning hike. As we entered the park, Drew made sure to point out the “Caution: Rattle Snakes” sign as we made our way up the trail. I was under the impression that in order to avoid a rattle snake attack, we had to stay on the wider paths, stay close to others, and keep moving! This made things a little difficult for Drew, as he tried to find a secluded (and probably snake ridden) spot to propose. Finally, on the way back down he convinced me to stop for pictures near a big boulder. I proceeded to climb the boulder by placing my hand directly on a lizard! After a mild moment of panic, we took pictures and then Drew bent down to “tie his shoe”. He instead pulled out the ring and asked me to marry him! We celebrated later that night with Betsy (who happened to be in town on business) and some old friends from Philly!

WHAT WAS YOUR WEDDING INSPIRATION?
California. We wanted our wedding to be a mix of earthy and glam, which is what we love about living in LA!

DESCRIBE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE WEDDING DETAILS
I loved the mix of blues with gold, the speeches given by our family and friends at our ceremony and reception, and the bouquets- they looked like they were freshly gathered from a field.

WHAT WAS THE BEST PART OF YOUR WEDDING DAY?
Walking down the aisle! I loved seeing all of my family and friends in one space and feeling all the anticipation of the amazing night to follow.

HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHERS?
Amazing! Drew and I are completely awkward at getting our pictures taken and you guys made us actually feel good about what we were doing. You guys are so easy to work with!

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST AS A MARRIED COUPLE?
Starting a family and sharing the rest of my life with my best friend.

ANY ADVICE FOR FUTURE BRIDES?
Enjoy every minute of this special time in your life and let your fiancé help- it was so amazing and special to see the combination of our ideas incorporated into our big day.

Interview with our beautiful bride:

HOW DID YOU MEET?
Ryan and I were introduced on a blind date by a friend of my dad’s the very first day that I moved to Florida!

HOW DID HE POP THE QUESTION?
He took me back to where we met, Marina Jacks. We had a nice dinner and then took a walk around the marina. Ryan suggested that we have someone take our picture and as we posed for the camera, he got down on one knee.

WHAT WAS YOUR WEDDING INSPIRATION?
We really wanted some kind of mansion on the water where we could have the ceremony and reception. There aren’t too many of those here in Florida, but we found the perfect place for us!

DESCRIBE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE WEDDING DETAILS
I loved our cake topper. When I found it, I absolutely had to have it! Everyone that knows Ryan knows that fishing is his life, so it was perfect!

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF YOUR WEDDING DAY?
Getting to marry my best friend was hands down the best part of the day. The party afterward wasn’t too shabby either.

HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHERS?
I would say it was an excellent experience, but we haven’t seen the pictures yet;)

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST AS A MARRIED COUPLE?
I’m looking forward to growing together as a couple and learning from experiences together to become stronger then ever.

ANY ADVICE FOR FUTURE BRIDES?
Try not to let your nerves ruin any part of your day! It’s such an awesome day and when it comes down to it, you won’t notice anyone there; it’ll just be the two of you and nothing else will matter.
