Our Love Story

We met online in 2016. We fell in love very quickly and I moved in with him in 2017. We got along so well and complimented each other perfectly. We both knew that we were meant to be! He was my dream come true.. and I never thought I would find that on a dating app to say the least!!! Ryan proposed to me when we were in San Francisco over the 4th of July week in 2018. On July5th, we rented a car to spend the last 2 days of our trip in Napa. On our way to Napa, we drove up to one of the look out points that overlooked the Golden Gate Bridge. He acted like he was taking pictures of me and had me turn around and face the bridge. When I turned back towards him, he was there on one knee! Of course I said yes! And we went off to Napa to celebrate!

Our Wedding Vision

The vision we had was to keep it simple, clean, but elegant. We didn’t want too many colors or flowers or over the top decorations. We felt like the venue was so beautiful and really spoke for itself. I think the bridesmaid dresses and the all white flowers with greenery really complimented the space well. It turned out perfect and exactly what we were looking for.

Our Wedding Photography

We loved working with Shannon and Ed! They were amazing and made the flow of the day go by so well. Wedding photos are so important to us and we’re obsessed with how they turned out! We will look at them forever and cherish those moments. We can’t wait to show them to our kids one day!

Our Wedding Videography

As much as I love pictures, the wedding video was almost more important to me. The day goes by so fast and you don’t really remember every moment afterwards. I love that we can go back and watch our video over and over and relive our perfect day. Thanks to the video, we will never forget what exactly was said during the ceremony and the speeches and toasts!

Our Wedding Memories

It’s so hard to pick a favorite moment! I would say hearing Ryan’s vows that he wrote was definitely a highlight. And of course the dancing at the end of the night was a blast!
