Samantha & Ryan's Storybook Wedding

Samantha and Ryan's love story is one straight out of a storybook. And lucky for us Kaysha Weiner Photographer captured the sweetest moments from their wedding day for all of us to see! With event coordinating and design by The Joy Parade, and florals by Rebelle Fleurs, these backyard 'i do's,' are the stuff that wedding dreams are made of!

About the couple, "After meeting in their senior year of high school, they have been together for over ten years and have grown into adults and been there for each other through many milestones."

"When it came to proposing to Samantha, Ryan knew it needed to be as special as their relationship – on an island in Helsinki, Finland, Ryan popped the question at the same "kissing rock" that his grandparents had their first kiss."

"Family dinners have been an important part of Samantha and Ryan's relationship, and they wanted their wedding to reflect that intimate feeling."

"Aesthetically, they decided to have an earthy and natural look with lots of greenery and bright pops of color that complemented the dark wood of their tables."

"There were so many small details that the couple loved, from the polaroid guestbook to the handfasting cord they made themselves."

"An especially memorable moment was the incorporation of one of their favorite songs, "Grow Old with You" from The Wedding Singer, into the ceremony – everything came together perfectly."

"When it came to wedding planning, Samantha advises other couples to hire a wedding planner you trust..."

"...because, if you know they have everything under control, you'll be able to really focus on your friends and family, which is exactly what you should be doing."
