From The Bride:
We are 8th grade sweethearts from the Blueberry Capital of the World (Hammonton, NJ)! He was the quarterback of the football team, and I was a 4-year varsity athlete. We met at age 14 at our town carnival, and dated throughout high school and college. Ryan completely surprised me while I was on a trip with friends in Las Vegas with an incredible proposal! We dated for 12 years before he popped the question. What is special about us? We are a very traditional. We did not live together before marriage (as you can tell by my little sisters AMAZING speech in the wedding video—she was so sad for me to leave home..WHAT A TEAR JERKER!!) and we value faith and morals. We got married in the church that we attended together since 8th grade and throughout high school. Our wedding venue was super cozy yet fancy, stunning and classic. 200 guests lit up the dance floor and we had such an amazing time! We are a TRUE LOVE STORY that have persevered through years of ups, downs, challenges and have remained best friends, honest to one another and loyal to our friendship and relationship.
