Diana + Ryan

Taylor Conservatory & Botanical Gardens Wedding

You guys, I am still smiling from this wedding! Diana and Ryan were married at the Taylor Conservatory & Botanical Gardens on an abnormally hot day for May in Michigan but nothing could get in the way of the love and kindness this two exude. I am telling you, I have never both cried and had my cheeks hurt from smiling so much then I did at their wedding. And if these two were amazing enough, their family and friends were just equally as warm and welcoming.

Diana and Ryan's love story is just as cute too, here is what Diana sent to me when I ask how they met:

"I first met Ryan in 8th grade. I crushed on him a little, but that was all. In 9th grade, our lockers were right next to each other. I would always flirt, but he was too shy and wasn't interested. I wasn't until we graduated high school that he found me on Facebook and we started talking every day. We started hanging out but I felt a little too shy and always invited my best friend on our dates. His friends convinced him that I friend-zoned him, and therefore he felt he should keep his feelings to himself. One day, I finally tricked him into confessing his feelings for me. That was October 31, 2008. We have been together ever since. It wasn't until a few years ago that I understood why we fit so perfectly. The life experiences that we've had are so similar. We understand each other so well and I don't think anyone would be as perfect for me like he is. We are each other's first loves and I couldn't have prayed for a better person to love me and understand me the way he does."

I just love these two so much and this day will forever be one of my favorites. Here is bigger peek into their day.
