It took a bit of reverse psychology for Alexandria and Ryan to click.
In her own words, Alexandria thought their first date was actually “really really awkward…” and they weren’t so sure there should be a second one.
But when she spotted Ryan chattin’ it up with some other girl, she had feelings deep down that she couldn’t explain. All of a sudden, those little jealous pangs made her see Ryan in a whole new way. She opened up the door for a second date…. and the rest is history!
Alexandria and Ryan have built such a joyful life together, and it is evident how much they pour into cultivating that joy. They have two sweet, goofy, adorable children, Isaiah and Imani, who know very well that mom and dad LOVE them. Soooo many snuggles and kisses were had! We loved the meaningful ways their kiddos were included in their ceremony at Mt. Helix Park – so many feels!!
For this family, being together means being home – so we really couldn’t have imagined a better place for them to celebrate their wedding day than in their own backyard! They put many long hours into fixing up their home, and it looked GORGEOUS!
We love the way that Suher of Francine Ribeau Events brought the whole day together – she helped Alexandria and Ryan transform their home into a gorgeous reception space, along with their FABULOUS team of vendors!
Seriously – go check out the bottom of this post – this was such an amazing team of wedding all-stars!
To the sweet newlyweds: We adore you two and your littles! Our faces are STILL recovering from smiling all day — your wedding was such a heart-warming display of what it means to be a family. Sending all of our hugs and love!
