Crystal and Ryan celebrated their wedding at Earlyhouse in Louisa, VA on a beautiful summer day! This was a very special wedding because Crystal and Ryan have been good friends of ours for quite some time. Ryan and Aaron went to UVA together, and after Undergrad Ryan moved to New York where he met Crystal! They moved back to Charlottesville for Ryan to go to grad school, and during that time Crystal has been doing all of our amazing design work that you’ve seen over the last year!
Crystal and Ryan incorporated some great summer details to their wedding inspired by their time together, including serving bubble tea before the ceremony (a favorite of their’s from NY) and having fans as a fun favor to keep guests refreshed throughout the afternoon! The ceremony was officiated by Crystal’s Dad, making it a very intimate and meaningful service for everyone. Another one of our other favorite moments of the day (and most challenging to capture!) was when doves were released at the end of the ceremony.
This day has been a long time coming and we loved seeing everything come together so beautifully! Enjoy looking through their pictures and be sure to take a peek at Part 2 of their summer wedding reception tomorrow!
Yes, you are seeing double, Crystal’s twin sister Katrina was her Matron of Honor!
