I thought a lot about how I would write the text for this post…it was stressing me out, actually because I really didn’t even know where to begin!! I love to try to write something from the heart, or something about the day…but Ann Carlisle and Ryan’s day this past Saturday was such an incredible day I couldn’t figure out what to write! I literally felt like I was at a loss for words! Since the very first emails traded back and forth between Ann Carlisle and myself, I have been so excited for this day to finally arrive! I don’t think I’ve ever known a couple that was more fun or loved as hard as these two do. John and I both feel so lucky that they have become our friends throughout the whole planning process! Real true friendships like this are the biggest gifts that my business has given me…they’re the one thing I would have never thought to ask for or dream of, but I’m so grateful they’ve come my way and made my life a little brighter!
I wish I could write something super eloquent about Ann Carlisle and Ryan and their AMAZING love story (Ryan wrote out their story for a feature on Heart Love Weddings this past winter and it brought me to tears!), but I’m no Nicholas Sparks. I would LOVE it though, if you’d hop on over to their HLW feature to read up on these two if you have time!
Special thanks to my partner in crime, Amanda of Into It Events, who styled the wedding!! So many of the little details were all her!
Ryan loves Justin Timberlake, so during the reception he and his groomsmen surprised Ann Carlisle by performing a medley of JT’s songs that fit the timeline of their relationship!
