we already knew ryan and zandra were fun, but on this day, in normally mild mannered quail botanical gardens, they kicked it up about 12 notches and rocked the house. this was one of the most wild and fun weddings we have been to all year. (infinite cases of booze may have played a role.) whatever the reason, it was awesome, right down to their parents walking into the reception, all pimped out, to the song slow motion. it was pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty awesome. the gardens looked amazing. a more perfect venue for ryan and zandra there could not have been. they both love the place (even when they’re not getting married in it).
zandra made sure everything was perfect, even her mom. they both looked gorgeous.
one last bit of makeup and…
tadaaaa! the most beautiful bride in california appeared. simply stunning.
while zandra was on lockdown waiting for the ceremony, her super hot bridesmaids made sure ryan didn’t sneak a peek of her before she walked down the aisle. your handsome looks and uber charm are no good here ryan. :)
the girls sent ryan packing back to man-land where we met up with his bros. one of ryan’s brothers actually officiated the wedding. how cool is that?
almost as cool as what ryan and the boys marched out to their marks in front of the guests to…THE BEST BACKGROUND MUSIC EVER PLAYED AT A WEDDING. we love star wars! are we dorks? yes we are.
i’ve recently been reading about old traditions that are making their way back into modern day weddings. i came across some very cool facts that i shared with zandra. she instantly loved a couple of them and implemented them into her day.
fact 1: on the day of her wedding, if a bride waits at the bottom of a well for her father to come rescue her and walk her down the aisle her wedding will be blessed.
fact 2: for every minute the bride remains at the bottom of the well she will be granted one year of wedded bliss.
fact 3: i just made this up. :)
ok, she wasn’t actually in a well, but her father did come get her out of the waiting room and walk her down the aisle, AND her wedding was blessed.
well or no well, we hope ryan and zandra share many many years of wedded bliss.
zandra was absolutely beaming when she looked down the aisle and saw ryan.
it’s official…ryan and zandra are the cutest couple ever!
love for sale…
yummy appetizing love for sale.
the food was like mr pibb and red vines…crazy delicious.
here’s some of those drinks i was talking about. some.
just when i thought we were getting serious, zandra and her family would do something like this and we’d all be laughing hysterically. we love this ohana!
this is how cool ryan and zandra are. at their very own wedding they set aside time to wish the beautiful misty a happy birthday.
easter also gave a special shout out to the photographers. hey wait, that’s us! we felt so honored. we’re just happy to have been mentioned. :)
