We are so excited to announce the launch of our speciality blog segment, Follow the Bride. Each week Love Ophelia will feature a bride on her journey towards wedded bliss. From the proposal, to the cake tasting, to the very last sip of champagne…Follow the Bride. Our first segment today begins with our featured bride, Brynne. We will follow her in the coming weeks as she plans her wedding to her fiancé, Ryan. Ryan’s entire proposal was photographed by Lucia Gill Photography. Prepare to be awestruck…
Ryan proposing to Brynne
The ring
The kiss
Ryan and Brynne defied the odds when they met on “We were both hesitant at first to try the online thing, but then thought, why not? You never know! He sent me an email first, but I decided to play hard to get. Turns out we only lived a few miles from each other. After a few weeks, we finally met up for a drink, and that date lasted for hours-we couldn’t stop talking. On our second date, I brought him cupcakes from my work, SusieCakes. That of course triggered my nickname, Cupcake. His friends and family all began calling me Cupcake, and still do to this day.”
Now four years later, Brynne and Ryan are planning the wedding of their dreams. They will soon be married in Santa Barbara on June 28th, and Love Ophelia will be following them each and every step of the way!
True love
The newly engaged couple
Ryan contacted Lucia Gill Photography beforehand to capture his proposal. Brynne had no idea that a road trip to Santa Barbara would end up with an engagement. Brynne’s oval shaped halo ring is from AA Jewelry Box. “Ryan knew I loved the oval shape with a dainty band, but he didn’t want anyone else to help him. He designed it himself. I love it-it’s perfect!”
