It’s not everyday we see such a beautiful elopement. I love how intimate and special these pictures are…and when you hear the backstory of how Alex and Ryan met and this day came together, you’ll have even more goosebumps. Captured so perfectly by Katelyn Prisco Photography, we’ll let her fill you in on all the sweet details, below!
How They Met:
“Ryan and Alex hated the bar scene. With Ryan’s busy schedule as a firefighter it seemed the only way he could meet someone was online. One day Alex decided to visit a friend who lived a bit far from where she lived at the time. She was browsing on Tinder and matched with Ryan (she specifically said “Hooray for swiping right because he had already swiped right!!!!) Ryan messaged Alex and after some small talk they decided to meet up at the Italian Festival a short time after that day. Little did Alex know but she accidentally gave Ryan the wrong phone number. It was weird to Alex that Ryan liked her newest profile picture on Facebook (if he didn’t even find the time to call her!)……Alex went back and re-read her messages to Ryan. Her heart dropped when she saw the wrong phone number typed out. She messaged him immediately to apologize and they made arrangements for their first date. They decided to make dinner together at Alex’s apartment and the rest is history!!”
They decided to tie the knot in an intimate elopement. They met at a mutual friends private property that had the most amazing overgrown fields, orange groves, and even cows!!! Ryan secretly styled the entire wedding…what a guy right?!!! He designed and hand made their wedding arch as well as the isle mason jar decor. After the ceremony, Ryan surprised Alex with a wedding cake and champagne…accompanied by her favorite designer glasses and cake plate made by Rae Dunn. He purchased a country chic table (that he knew she would love to put in their home), and even got a few little extra decorations just to make it special. She had no clue he did any of this as you can certainly see by all of her reactions!! ”
