Our Story


In 2010 a girl went to a wedding and noticed that the officiant was a devilishly handsome young man who was about to marry his two close friends. Despite his nervous demeanor the girl was drawn to this handsome stranger. Months later the two actually met at a gathering of mutual friends. As 2010 drew to a close the two found themselves at the same New Year’s Eve party, which of course led to the pivotal “Who do I kiss at midnight?” moment. Since you are reading this, the two obviously chose to kiss each other. And so their new romance began. They had their first date at the Sonoran Desert Museum, a place they still hold near and dear to their hearts. Not just because they shared their first date at this location, but also because there are mountain lions and bears there. The two spent every second they could together, whether it be watching movies, visiting with friends and family, going on road trips, or sharing their passion for photography. When the girl was sad or stressed the man was always able to make her laugh and smile. When the man was upset the girl was always able to comfort him and make him feel better. And when they were both upset, at least there was wine! On New Year’s Eve of 2018, exactly 7 years after their first kiss, the man got on one knee and asked the girl to marry him. To no one’s surprise, the girl said yes. And so begins the next exciting chapter of Ryan and Danielle’s lives together!
