Jennifer and Ryan are married!! Their intimate Ohme Gardens wedding last weekend was so gorgeous surrounded by their closest family members and gorgeous scenery. The Ohme Gardens has so much work done over the pandemic and it looked absolutely beautiful! These two gorgeous people decided to elope at the gardens and have a fun reception, small dinner, and dancing, and Jennifer’s parents house down the street from the gardens. It was such a great time! These two are so in love and Jennifer looked oh so stunning!
This whole family was so much fun, generous, and excited! Even baby Landon was on point with his smiles and laughter! My favorite moment, well two moments really, was during the ceremony when Jennifer’s brother, their officiant, started talking about his sister and it was the sweetest moment. The other moment was when Landon wanted to play in Jennifer’s dress and it was sooooo cute, his smile is the absolute best!
This is how the proposal went down: “Jennifer worked through most of the summer due to Covid trying to get ready for back to school. Ryan surprised Jennifer one Saturday morning by saying, “Pack a bag. I want to give you a break from work and planned a weekend to for us to get away before school officially starts back up.” Ryan didn’t tell Jennifer, but he had planned an over-night getaway to Whidbey Island because he knew she had lots of childhood memories there. Ryan hoped to propose Saturday evening around sunset, however we got a late start and there was much more traffic than expected. Instead we went to dinner and shared a good bottle of wine. The next morning was absolutely gorgeous. We found a little place serving brunch outside and had breakfast. The tide was really low that morning, so Jennifer wanted to take Ryan to Useless Bay since he’d never been there. Little did she know, that was already his plan. It was a beautiful day, so the parking lot and beach were packed. Ryan was quite frustrated by this (he knew Jennifer didn’t want a super public proposal), and kept wanting to walk further down the beach toward Double Bluff. At this point, Jennifer was a bit suspicious because Ryan was very interested in shells and kept talking about wanting to find more tidepools. He also kept putting his hand in his pocket. Turns out Ryan didn’t want to carry the ring box in his pocket in fear that Jennifer would see it, so he wrapped the ring in a mask. (Thanks Covid!) Jennifer was throwing a stick for Phil when Ryan called her over to a small tide pool to look at “a little crab.” Jennifer walked over and didn’t see much. Ryan said it must have ran away, but that he saw a pincher sticking out of the shell on the other side of the rock we were standing by. There was a closed scallop shell, so Jennifer opened in and found a ring inside! It was a very special moment for us. This beach holds wonderful memories for Jennifer, and now Ryan too! ❤️”
Their favorite part about being together: “Laughing. Our shared vision for the future. Becoming a family.” SO CUTE!
So enjoy Jennifer and Ryan’s wedding day below!! It’s one of my favorites!
