We have had such a fun time getting to know Amy and Ryan. They are some of the nicest, most sincere people we’ve met to date. A little about their love story… they’ve known one another since childhood as their mom’s have been Bunco buddies for the past 15 years. Their wedding day marked two years of dating! It should also be noted that Ryan’s family owns a jewelry store… he not only designed Amy’s beautiful ring but also made it! How cool is that? After getting ready at San Marcos Golf Resort we headed over to their wedding venue, Inspirador. With the help of her mom and maid of honor, Amy slipped into her wedding dress and was ready to see her groom for the first time! We as photographers love the “first look” for various reasons… but mainly because it allows the couple a private and intimate moment before they proclaim their love for one another in front of all their friends and family. Amy and Ryan’s first look was beautiful… with tears of joy in their eyes and huge smiles on their faces all the stress of wedding planning had finally paid off and they could breathe a sigh of relief, they were now ready to become husband and wife! The ceremony was performed by Matt Nathanson… it was fun, light-hearted and of course emotional. Afterwards guests moved from the courtyard into the gallery room for cocktail hour where their signature drink, Lemon Strawberry Vojito’s were served. Guests dined on some delicious food by Inspirador’s in house executive chef, Chad Murray. Drea with Desert House Productions kept the party going all night long… seriously, that girl knows how to DJ! It was an amazing party for two wonderful people. Katie Benson with Inspirador was an amazing coordinator to work with… laid back and on top of things! Congratulations to Amy and Ryan… the pleasure was ours!
