I met Elizabeth and Ryan the day before their wedding. They gracefully walked in and greeted their closest family and friends for their rehearsal. While they live in Dallas, Texas, Elizabeth grew up here and knew it was where she wanted to say her vows. Elizabeth had an elegant softness to her that carried throughout the room whenever she entered. She wore her mother's wedding dress, promising to follow in the footsteps of her parents' 30 year marriage. Ryan was charming, thoughtful and carried on his grandfather's Texas tradition by wearing cowboy boots. I am so thankful that I was asked to share such a special day with two wonderful families and one brand new forever-love. Congratulations Ryan & Elizabeth, may you spend the rest of your lives blissfully happy!
"We wanted our wedding to be a celebration of what is important to us: our community and our faith. During our wedding weekend, each interaction with hospitality and wedding professionals to long-time friends was an outpouring of kindness that filled our hearts with inexpressible gratitude. Elizabeth did such an amazing job planning a wedding that reflected us in its simplicity, classic aesthetic and loving atmosphere. Many guests remarked that celebrating with us felt like they had traveled back to their own treasured memories in their childhood church or their own special events. I think Uncle Ken said it best, "I usually notice that simple things require the most effort and I feel like you two worked very hard." Scarlett furthered this experience with her joyful spirit and we know there was a great deal of hard work behind her seemingly effortless simplicity. We are so grateful for her contributions, as well as all our friends and family who joined to prepare us for a blessed life together. " Love, Ryan & Elizabeth
