This may be one of the most SPECIAL wedding blog posts I have ever done. Ryan is Hayden’s older brother, which means this wedding day was between my soon-to-be brother and sister-in-law!!! Their wedding celebration at Eden Try Winery in Fredericksburg was a long awaited celebration. Ryan and Sophia actually got married two years ago in 2020. They knew they wanted a big wedding day with all of their loved ones, but it had to wait while Ryan was back from deployments and the pandemic craziness was passed. After a year of planning, their big day was last weekend and it was absolutely perfect from start to finish!
There were so many reasons this day was extra special. Sophia’s parents and best friend traveled in all the way from Korea to be a part of the celebration, Ryan’s entire family came from all over the US, Ryan got back from a deployment JUST in time to be there…it was a major celebration for so many reasons! And, I had the honor of being a bridesmaid AND the photographer!! A HUGE thank you to my best friend Kristen Cranham for coming to help me photograph this day so I could be IN the wedding and celebrate at the reception!
Ryan and Sophia: I love you guys to pieces!!! Thank you for letting me be such a huge part of your wedding day. I can’t wait to officially be family in May 🙂 I hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites!!
The weather was BEAUTIFUL but the leaves wouldn’t stop falling and covering the entire ceremony location…so the boys came early to blow off the entire property!! It was so sweet!
Ryan’s mom peeking around the corner is so sweet in this one!!
The absolute SWEETEST first look!!! Sophia kept having to pause to wipe her tears before she could even tell Ryan to turn around!
Love this one!
Possibly my favorite from the whole day! So sweet!
Love this girl!!!
