Ryan and Elizabeth met in high school and attended college together at Christendom College in Fort Royal, Va. They have been friends for about 10 years but only just started dating 1 year ago. They always thought they would just be good friends and never pursued one another, ignoring the many attempts from friends. As it turns out, their friends knew long before they did, that they were made for each other. After everyone gave up on trying to set them up, it randomly happened on their own terms. I guess timing is everything! Ryan and Elizabeth dated for about 9 months and by then he knew she was the one. During the Christmas holidays, Ryan flew home early from his parents, surprising Elizabeth with a sweet proposal.... and she said YES! These love birds will be tying the knot this August in Washington, D.C. so it only made sense that they celebrate their proposal under the cherry blossoms in D.C. I was so stinkin' thankful they were free while I was in town visiting. I love these captures dearly.
Congrats, Ryan and Elizabeth!
