I am honored to announce Meredith and Ryan’s wedding. These two have been together now just over four and a half years after meeting at the University of Florida.
As for the proposal, they stayed two nights at a hotel Orlando. Meredith was enjoy her vacation and sleeping in while Ryan secretly ran out and bought a bunch of flowers and candles. He went to wake her up, very sweetly and said "Hey... let's go get some breakfast." Meredith crawled out of bed and opened up the door. The room was filled with red rose petals and red candles. Meredith was so surprised. There was a card, a tiny box, and a bouquet of roses on the counter. Ryan told Meredith to open up the card and it read "No matter the weather, will you be mine forever and marry me?!" He took the box, got down on one knee and asked her again. Of course SHE SAID YES!
The wedding was truly breathtaking. It was on New Year’s Eve into the New Year. Everything was decorated so beautifully. The wedding was at St. Stephen Lutheran Church followed by the reception at Alaqua Country Club in Longwood, Florida. A big thank you goes out to these awesome companies that helped make Meredith and Ryan’s day so special.

Their reception was also pretty magnificent and a lot of fun! Everyone was constantly dancing and laughing. It was a good time to be had by all. Ryan and Meredith danced together as husband and wife to You are Mine by Spencer Combs. They had a perfect wedding. As Meredith said, “It was everything we hoped for and more. It was absolutely perfect!”
Wish you could have been there, too, blog readers! At least you can live through the pictures! Scroll down all the way to the bottom to see some of their photo booth fun as well (Austin and I may have taken one of us as well)!
