Springtime in Arizona is magical and it was a beautiful day for Alex and Ryan to say their "I Do's." It has been a joy getting to know this couple and following their journey.
They met the "old fashioned way"-- online! Haha! They were both living in south Florida and ended up catching each other's eye based on their mutual love for Jurassic Park/Jurassic World (it had just been released). From the moment they met, they were practically inseparable.
Three and a half years later, Ryan surprised Alex with a one-night trip to Portsmouth, NH to celebrate their last night of freedom (before picking up their new puppy the next morning). When they arrived at the hotel, they were "upgraded" to a nicer room (it was all pre-arranged with the hotel management). As they explored the room, Alex found the bedroom and noticed the rose pedals and flowers covering the bed. When she turned around, Ryan was down on one knee with the ring. After Alex got through her tears of joy, she said yes! They spent the evening celebrating with a romantic dinner and a perfect last night of freedom/first night together planning the rest of their lives.
Their wedding was filled with so much happiness, laughter and love! Thank you for having me capture your special day! XO
