Cristina and Ryan met online, and then in person, in early 2013, and Ryan knew it was love at first sight. Cristina soon succumbed to Ryan’s charms, and a few years later accepted his proposal to become a permanent family, along with their two dogs, Cooper and Bruce. We met the family of four last fall for fun engagement session at Loys Station Covered Bridge and the Rocky Ridge area…
This October, it was time for their wedding day, at The Barn at Serra Valley Farms in Mount Airy, Maryland.
Cristina’s awesome Star Wars shoes were a nod to her and Ryan’s shared love of all things geeky.
Cristina found her gorgeous gown at David’s Bridal.
Guests took a tractor ride from the reception area over to the ceremony spot.
Blossom and Basket Boutique created the lovely florals.
Tres Chic Weddings and Events by Kelly served as the coordinator for the day.
The Rev. Joyce Hilbery officiated the ceremony.
Cooper and Bruce were ready for ring-bearer duty!
Eleven Courses Catering handled the reception refreshments.
Stone House Cakery brought the cake!
The shoe game is always a crowd-pleaser.
Aside from dancing, guests also enjoyed some outdoor games, such as giant Jenga!
All too soon, it was time for the sparkler sendoff… Congratulations Cristina and Ryan!
