These two. What.
I met the lovely Alicia in our Digital Photography class in college, which is so appropriate. While I didn't meet Ryan until last year, the two have them have known each other since, well, Myspace. They met on Myspace. I love this about them. I was able to spend a day with them in Asheville last fall, catching up with Alicia, getting to know Ryan, observing how they fit together perfectly, and listening to old playlists from high school.
Their wedding was designed for them to be able to soak everything in. They took their time getting ready and after the ceremony, we drove to downtown Charlotte to get coffee and explore before the reception. I love how they value their photos, how they value to the time spent between the two of them, how Ryan looks at Alicia in every single photo. Thank you both for making me put my camera down to dance and be a guest. You two are unbelievably kind and hilarious, and I'm excited to see where you two will go in life together. <3
