It’s official Amanda + Ryan are now husband and wife as they exchanged their vows with all their family + friends present at Wolf Mountain Vineyard. And…since it was the night of the time change they got to enjoy and extra hour of wedding day bliss as the clocks fell back for fall!
Amanda and Ryan story is so adorable they actually went to elementary, middle and high school together. However, that is not where their love story started. Although they knew of each other, they did not “see each other” until after Amanda came home from college and they reconnected online. It was the first time they looked at each other and thought, Daaaaaang, that just may be my soul mate! Because of the reconnect which led to dating, which led to Ryan proposing in St. Augustine, FL at one of their favorite distilleries; these two amazing souls are now husband + wife.
Wolf Mountain Vineyard Wedding Along with Dad Plus Bridesmaids First Looks
Amanda chose to get ready at Wolf’s bridal suite with the help of her mother. She saved a first look for her father + grandmother and for her bridesmaids. In the meantime Ryan and the gentlemen got ready at the wine bar. With both of them loving wineries Wolf was the perfect place to exchange their vows for the two of them. Wine was also the color of choice for their beautiful wedding day. Bouquets by Bohemian Blooms adorn with eucalyptus red and pink roses, cherries and hydrangeas set the mood.
Bridal Party Photos and a No Peeking First Touch
Following getting ready we kept Amanda + Ryan separate for bridal photos. This way there was no peeking before the wedding. They chose to do a No Peeking First Touch to exchange gifts and to calm any nerves. It’s always so good to hear your beloveds voice just before the ceremony.
Amanda and Ryan asked Amanda’s uncle to officiate their wedding a very personal and special touch. Also on their wedding day Amanda was able to surprise Ryan with his life long friend who drove from Maryland to be there for the wedding.
