Austin & Rylan – March 23, 2018

Austin and Rylan, who met at church, were married on March 23, 2018.

Austin chose a dramatic fit-and-flare sleeveless trumpet gown with a V-neck, embellished bodice, and button-down illusion back. Her    bouquet was composed of an assortment of flowers in tones of pink, blue, and red, along with several varieties of greenery accents. Her five bridesmaids wore black, full-length, sleeveless lace dresses, and carried smaller versions of the bride’s bouquet.

Rylan wore a classic black tuxedo with a black bow tie, and mini bouquet boutonniere. His five groomsmen wore gray suits with black bow ties, and white flower boutonnieres.

The ceremony included the taking of Communion and a reading from the book of Genesis.

Next, guests enjoyed a meal of mixed-greens salad with tomatoes, mushrooms, black olives, pepperoncini, mozzarella, Parmesan, and balsamic vinaigrette; pasta rustico with spinach, ricotta, garlic, and mozzarella; creamy pesto pasta; chicken marsala; and chicken limone with artichokes, capers, and lemon butter sauce. There was also a dessert table offering doughnuts, cupcakes, and brownies.

During the speeches, the best man, the groom’s brother, said that the bride and groom together are a force to be reckoned with.

The maid of honor, the bride’s sister, called the bride her biggest support. The groom’s father talked about his family and the groom’s future with his new wife. The bride’s father said today was one of the happiest of his life, and talked about how kind and loving the newlyweds are.

Rylan and Austin danced for the first time as man and wife to “Grow Old” by Florida Georgia Line. Austin and her father, along with Rylan and his mother, danced to “Forever Young” by Bob Dylan.

The newlyweds left their wedding under the signature sparkler sendoff. We wish them love and luck in their new life together!
