“Your vibe attracts your tribe” describes Gabby and Ryan to a tee! Not only did I feel an immediate kinship with these two when we initially met, but after their engagement session I felt like we were old friends, and at their wedding I sometimes felt more like a wedding guest who just happened to have a giant camera with me. Gabby’s personality is so inviting and loving, and her laugh is just so infectious! When you see the way Ryan looks at her: goodness gracious! His adoration for Gabby was apparent throughout the entire day and was echoed even by his best man who had only met her that day, but just “knew” how perfect they were for each other.
Although it was unusually warm and sunny on this September day, I’m so grateful Gabby and Ryan chose to do a first look, and then they took some extra time to read their vows to each other privately before the ceremony. I loved that during the ceremony they chose a non-traditional choice for a unity ceremony by watering a new tree they would plant at their home together. A love fern! (Any How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days fans out there??)
The night ended with games and gathering outside under the lights on the beautiful patio of the Fenton Winery and Brewery while more guests danced their hearts out to the fantastic band inside.
A couple notes about the vendors I worked with for this wedding (links below): The live band was such a blast and had everyone dancing all night! Lexie from One Enchanted Evening did a fantastic job adding touches of floral to places I wouldn’t have even thought and the arrangement were just stunning, and she is so sweet in person! Chris, the videographer, was super chill and easy to work with. Last but not least, Fun with Frosting killed it yet again with the best cupcakes I’ve ever had!!
