I am excited to introduce you to Katie and Ryan! So thrilled for their wedding at Belmont Manor this weekend!! Learn more about this sweet couple below!
How did the two of you meet?
We met at a high school dance. We had a mutual friend or two and ended up dancing all night and began talking after that.
Ryan, what do you love about Katie?
That is very hard to put into words. She is just incredible and perfect. She is the most genuine and selfless person I have ever met. In our time together, she has changed the way I see things and made me into a much better person. She knows me better than anyone, when to challenge me and when to comfort me. How long would you like this to be? I can go on and on.
Katie, what do you love about Ryan?
Ryan is my person. He’s seen the good, the bad, and the ugly and has stuck around through it all. He supports me, encourages me, and lifts me up every day. He danced with me at my prom, cheered me on at my high school graduation, helped me move into my college dorm room and apartment, pulled all nighters with me when I had big projects to do for school, celebrated with me when I graduated college, gave me pep talks before every interview, spent hours setting up my classroom each year, held my hand as we purchased our first house together, and so much more. He has been there for every big moment since I was 17 and I couldn’t imagine doing any of it without him. He is kind, thoughtful and makes me laugh every day. He takes care of me and loves me so well. I am so lucky to have him.
What is something special about the two of you?
I would say how long we have been together for how young we are. We have truly grown up together and changed over the years but our relationship was always there.
What do you like to do as a couple in your free time?
We love beach days with our pup. Going out to a nice meal or just staying in. We have a great group of friends we see often.
What are a few of your favorite things?
Pizza of any kind, Traveling, Ryan likes golf, Katie like pinot grigio, we both love dogs, reality tv, sports, candles
What does your dream wedding look like?
Simple and sophisticated, surrounded by all of those who love us and who have played a part in how or why we love each other. A fun night of dancing and drinks. Good food and good company. We are very excited to have our entire life and social circles in one place. It is basically the only day of our lives where this group of people who have us as a common link will be together and it’s all to celebrate us. That is really special.
Why did you choose to work with Social Graces?
We were referred by one of Katie’s colleagues. Once we started to do our research, we knew Social Graces would be perfect as our month of coordinator! Katie’s eye for design and attention to detail aligns perfectly with our vision. Once we started talking to Katie, we realized that we have a lot in common! Not only are she and her husband named Katie and Ryan, but they also have a golden retriever pup just like we do. Now that we’ve met Katie and had a chance to work with her, we couldn’t imagine working with anyone else! She is so organized and thorough and is making this last month of wedding planning so easy!
