Ali & Ryan were married on an overcast Autumn day. The morning was plagued with drizzle but that didn't dull Ali's sparkle, nothing could on the day she was going to marry her best friend. She dazzled her way through getting ready, smiling out the window, resigned to the fact that it might rain all day but knowing in her heart that it wouldn't. That it simply couldn't.
Ali & Ryan prepared to see each other for the first time at the ceremony. Ali in a hotel room surrounded by family and friends, Ryan in a groomsman's home nearby, playing pool and toasting the momentous day. As the time grew near, the excitement hung in the air like glitter as the last few raindrops fell from the sky and the clouds parted just in time for the ceremony.
Ali sparkled with every step as she descended into the rock garden where Ryan waited for her. Happy tears were shed, laughs were shared, and soon, they were married.
The property surrounding the hotel was alive with red, yellow, and orange foliage. As they made their way around the property, smiling and laughing, they were a vision of two people, completely and totally in love. After portraits, they made their way inside, where they would dance and dazzle the whole night long.
Ali & Ryan, I hope your love always sparkles just as bright and that you continue to dazzle each other each and every day.
