So thrilled to be able to share this stunner of a wedding with you all . Everything about this day was spectacular . Such a joy !
We love reading all of the great stories of how our couples started their journey’s together and we love sharing them . Here is the scoop on Lori and Ryan
Tell us about the proposal. We want all the details!
Ryan and Lori had just arrived in Bluffton, South Carolina, to visit his dad and step-mom’s new home. The proposal went a little something like this:
Ryan: Wanna go check out the backyard with me?
Lori: Sure, let’s bring Squeaky (our chihuahua).
Ryan: No, let’s not.
Lori: Why would we not bring Squeaky?
Ryan: Um, he might run away and get lost.
So they went out into the large backyard, and afer a few minutes, Squeaky came bounding toward them with a neon green bow on his neck.
Lori: Oh that’s so smart! They put a bow on him so we could see him if he runs away! Ryan, what are you doing? Don’t take off the bow. Stop it. What are you doing? We won’t be able to see him…
Then Lori saw that her great-great grandmother’s ring was tied onto the bow, and Ryan dropped down on one knee and proposed. Fortunately for them, his family, brother and sister-in-law were inside taking photos and ready to celebrate with champagne.
