This may not have been the original plans for Kristen and Ryan’s March 28, 2020 wedding, but together with their closest family members (7 to be exact) they held the most beautiful, intimate ceremony in Ryan’s parents backyard. They said their vows, exchanged rings, wandered around the most gorgeous neighborhood with me and @jennhopkinsphoto as we got footage of them as newlyweds, and then went on to celebrate throughout the night having dinner, drinks, speeches and first dances. THIS is what it is all about! I’ll say it again and again, Love is NOT canceled! These two were radiating pure happiness throughout the day that I honestly wouldn’t have known these weren’t the original plans! So happy for these two and the fact that’s Kristen’s sister sent me over footage she captured of some speeches and first dances!
Crazy side note: Kristen actually reached out to me months prior to their date and at the time I wasn’t available. When the day came Jenn texted me that morning saying she had a couple and they really need a videographer as their plans changed last minute. I ended up being available as my original wedding changed their plans, and little did I know it was Kristen! Congrats to Mr. + Mrs. Groeli
