It began 28 years ago. Ryan’s Aunt and Alexis’ Mom had been friends before Alexis was even born.
Ryan and Alexis grew up hearing about one another.
Admiring each other from afar.
But it wasn’t until they both attended a mutual wedding last year, “single and available,” that the sparks began to fly.
“Ryan was looking pretty handsome that day as one of Patrick’s groomsmen. I remember noticing him right away! All throughout the evening my mom and sister kept telling me that Ryan had been checking me out. I didn’t believe one word of it. Why, after all these years, would Ryan be interested in me? ” -Alexis
Oh, but he was!
Ryan and Alexis had their first date at the Annual Santa Pub Crawl in Old Folsom.
Ryan, what do you LOVE about Alexis?
“What do I LOVE about Alexis. Where do I start? I LOVE that the thought of her brings peace to my heart knowing that she is the only one for me. I LOVE that she loves me for who I am, and that for the first time, I can completely be myself around her. I LOVE that she laughs really hard at my jokes. She has the most beautiful smile. I LOVE that we are always on the same page. I LOVE that she has such a loving, peaceful, caring heart. I LOVE the fact that I get to spend the rest of my life with the LOVE of my life, my best friend, my soul mate!”
“Wow, just the thought of Ryan brings tears to my eyes! What isn’t there to LOVE about him?!?! Ryan is the most amazing, genuine, honest, thoughtful, kind-hearted, caring, compassionate, and loving man I have ever met! He brings a sense of calm into my life that completely balances my little bit of crazy. He gets me, to my core. I LOVE that he treats me, and speaks to me, with complete respect. I LOVE how he knows how to make me smile when I feel like crying. I LOVE how just one hug from Ryan seems to make everything better. I LOVE how he does things before I even think to ask for his help. I LOVE how he always knows the exact right words to say when I ask for his advice. I LOVE how he makes me laugh. I LOVE everything about my sweet sugar plum!! I have fallen deeper and deeper in love with Ryan every day since December 8th, and I know that will never change!”
“Marrying the man I have been searching for my whole life…my true soul mate…my absolute best friend!” – Alexis
“Getting to marry Alexis and to call her my wife! Starting the next chapter of our lives. Also having fabulous pictures to remember it by. :)” -Ryan
Ryan and Alexis, looking forward to you lovely wedding in a few weeks!
