Lauren + Ryan’s love story began on June 3, 2014, unknowingly connected by mutual family, these two had never actually met. Until one day Ryan reached out to Lauren, + there was instant chemistry + undeniable sparks. Kismet + fate have played a strong role in their relationship, ironically enough Lauren + Ryan’s very 1st date was along the Riverfront in Windsor, just steps outside the St. Clair College Centre for the Arts. Fast forward 3 years later to the day, and Lauren + Ryan would soon be using this exact same setting as their wedding day location.
Lauren + Ryan have been surrounded by very strong + bonded couples in their families, who have been the ultimate examples of a deep sense of commitment + romance. This has rubbed off on Lauren + Ryan in so many ways. Their adoration for each other is evident in every magnetic glance + every beaming smile. Ryan began an annual traditional early on with Lauren of bringing her roses on their very 1st year anniversary, representing the number of months they had been together. In thoughtful + generous Ryan style, the morning of their wedding day Lauren was surprised with huge arrangement of 36 beautiful roses, representing their 3 year anniversary, to the day!
Their wedding day was like no other, emotions, anticipation + excitement were high. I could feel it all in the air the second I stepped foot into Lauren’s parents home in the morning. Lauren + Ryan’s style choices were unmatched, + simply stunning. On past trips together to France, + an upcoming honeymoon also planned for France, it was obvious that Lauren + Ryan had fallen in love with Parisian style. It was incredibly fitting that they then each sported Christian Louboutin shoes, grandly gifted to one another for their wedding.
In her Allure Couture custom gown from Bridal Couture, Lauren took her very first steps down a long + dramatic aisle towards the love of her life Ryan. These two just beamed during the Ceremony + truly looked so proud to be officially be uniting together as husband + wife. Stepping foot into their Reception full of dreamy pastels, delicate chandeliers, + the most gorgeous soft blooms by the Bourbon Rose Floral Design Co. was like a page straight out of fairytale.
Lauren + Ryan you are two of the most gentle old souls who exude such class + warmth! It was such an honour to be a part of continuing this chapter of your love story, + capturing every beautiful moment! Here are a few of many favourites from your absolutely stunning wedding day!
