On July 14th down at the Country Club in Lakewood Aarika & Ryan tied the knot!! Over the past year and a half, Aarika has been planning her wedding from Arizona so we have exchanged many emails and a few phone calls and gotten to know each other, she is such a sweet girl and after meeting Ryan can see that they are just perfect for each other.
Speaking of perfect, it was a perfect (and not too hot) July afternoon – and the entire day was so great! The getting ready was a lot fun – while the girls were bustling around, getting ready and giggling in the back – the boys where out playing poker waiting for the festivities to start. Thanks to the help of the coordinator at the country club – everything was perfectly in place long before starting time.
The dancing was DEFINITELY a highlight – the DJ (George Hollis with Gotta Dance Productions) was fun and kept everyone on the dance floor for hours, what a fun bunch of dancers!!! (I LOVE the photo of Aarika and her Dad dancing -without a doubt a tear-filled moment!
Here are a few of my favorite photos, I hope you enjoy them!
Aarika’s veil was made specially for her by her loving grandmother (so pretty!!) her three sisters have already placed their orders. =)
Oh yeah!! I forgot to mention – she had the greatest colorful signature drinks being passed around… Yum!!!
