“Ryan and I met in high school! He was the handsome older guy who intimidated me to no end, and as it turned out, I was the younger girl who he couldn’t help but fall in love with. We spent many years growing together, and a few years apart as well, but it wasn’t long before we were back where we belonged! Ryan proposed during an unbelievable helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon in 2016, and that was that!” Real bride Taylor was happy to share her and her now husband’s love story with us. The couple married on February 10,2018 in Tampa, FL and Taylor stunned in our Lilia gown.

It was the most special day for Taylor and Ryan. From their dream venue to Taylor’s brother officiating the ceremony, it was all perfect and intimate. “It was unbelievably special to have my brother officiate the wedding. We wanted to really connect with the words that were going to bind us for the rest of our lives, and the person who would be delivering them. Aaron prepared the most heartfelt and personal ceremony, with the perfect mix of humor and inside jokes too. It was everything we could have hoped for and more!”

Taylor purchased her THEIA gown from Malindy Elene Couture for the Bride. “Gown shopping was quite the experience, but the Lilia was the unexpected and perfect happy ending to that chapter of the wedding planning process!” We love these lovely wedding photos and hope you do too. Congrats to Taylor and Ryan!
