elizabeth + ryan’s story

“We met at a mutual friend’s wedding in Mobile,” shares Elizabeth. “I was living in Dallas at the time so a few weeks later when I was visiting family in Mobile we went on a date and hit it off.” 

The couple officially started dating in November of 2021. Five months later while on a walk in the park with their dog Boo, Ryan proposed. 

“Ryan let {Boo} off the leash in Washington Square Park and I turned around to ask him why he did that and he was on one knee,” shares Elizabeth. “We always went on walks together when I was visiting from Dallas so this was a special spot for us and we both love being outside.”

the wedding details

Elizabeth and Ryan included many special details in their wedding day.

Elizabeth wore a pearl bracelet that her father  gave her mother when she was born, and her cousin’s veil that had lace from the dress her mother and aunt wore on their wedding day. She says, “It was even more special because my great grandmother had hand sewn the pearls on the lace.”

The couple married at St. Joseph Chapel in Mobile.  “This church was extremely special because Ryan said it was the first place he saw me the night before we met,” shares Elizabeth. Father Neske, who was a celebrant at Elizabeth’s parents’ wedding officiated the ceremony.
