Justine & Ryan | Married

Justine & Ryan are two of the sweetest people you'll ever meet ;)  I knew this after their engagement session, and hearing it from their family and friends confirmed it!  These high school sweethearts poured their heart and soul into their wedding day because more than anything, they wanted those who joined them to feel loved and appreciated.  Ryan was a bundle of nerves until the moment he saw Justine walking down the aisle, and Justine's smile was radiant ;)  They danced, they laughed, they enjoyed every minute of their perfect day.

A lot can happen in 10 years.  You can move, change cars, have 4 kids, argue and make-up, lose loved ones, gain friends, and grow up a bit.  And yet, when the one that promised their heart and life to you at the beginning of that decade is still the one by your side, it's worth a celebration!!  And since they didn't that's exactly what Corinna & Jason decided to do on a drizzly yet cozy spring evening!  The Butterfly Garden at Center in the Square was a fun backdrop for the sweet words they exchanged and the children's area was perfect for occupying both kids and adults alike!
