Ryan and I met in college when he asked if anyone was sitting next to me in an empty study room. I glanced around and smiled before offering him the seat next to mine. Little did we know that after a few laughs and a lot of watermelon sour patch later, I had just met the best adventure of my life.
We were friends for years before we walked to Jimmy John’s for a late-night snack. We sat outside and talked until the shop had closed and the city was falling asleep. We felt too alive to let the night end, so we took off to the hill that overlooks the city. At nearly 4am, there we were - laughing way too hard, waiting for the sun to rise, and not yet knowing that we were looking over at our future husband and wife 🙂.
Since that night, it's been 7 years of friendship, 5 years of love, and 0 seconds of doubt."
" Vayda Jane 🤍🌿: From start to finish, the entire experience was a dream! Shelby is so incredibly kind and welcoming, and when you grow up imagining this day to be magical, she makes it exactly that and more! My favorite thing to say is, 'Shelby’s an angel'. 💛☺️ I was nervous about the pressure we put on ourselves to find a dress that is perfect to us, our whole family, and every friend. But she reminds you that if a dress makes you five-year-old giddy when you put it on, everyone else will love it just as much simply because of how happy it makes you! I will always be grateful for how effortless and fun she made it all. Her entire staff makes you feel carefree and excited (shoutout to Jodi!), and Vayda Jane is a memory I’ll cherish forever 💛."
