Couples are often told to prepare for anything when it comes to their wedding, but a global pandemic isn’t typically something to consider. This isn’t the way these two planned their forever day, but they made the best of it and it was CMBC’s most romantic, intimate wedding of 2020. These two knew that the most important part of their wedding, was becoming husband and wife on March 28 with a handful of their loved ones to witness it.

Their Story

Ryan + Jacoby are truly one of the most adorable couples I’ve ever met! They met distantly in Junior High in the 6th grade, but didn’t become friends until they were in High School. They hung out with the same group of friends which gave them the opportunity to get to know each other. Before they knew it, being with each other on a more consistent basis led them to take an interest in being more than “Just Friends”. She fell involve with his kind heart, he fell involve with her goofiness making her thankful that he had such a great sense of humor. They complete each other in ways that made them feel whole.

The Proposal

8 months into their relationship, Ryan just knew he had to make a move. He took Jacoby on an evening boat ride as they have done plenty of times before, only this time would be one she would never forget. They ended up in the bay and came to a stop. She was at the front part of the boat and not quiet sure of what he was doing so concerned, she turned around and found him on one knee.  She didn’t even hesitate to say yes! She knew she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him.

Their Wedding Day

They wedding day was perfect! It was overcast and a cool front was just brewing in. The wind was a sour factor leaving hair unmanageable, but we all agreed we would take the wind over a hot and humid day any day! Their wedding did not take place in their preferred venue at The Red Barn, however, her besties house sure did come close to it. It was beautiful and still had the corn crop backdrop we wanted to use for our group shots.

The ceremony felt as if time stood still..  Ryan watched Jacoby walk down the isle for the first time in her gorgeous All About The Dress white gown with the biggest smile on his face. I could tell he was trying to hold back the tears. I wish he didn’t! I love watching the groom tear up! Is that mean? I continued capturing their nuptials and then suddenly found myself wondering what was going on when Jacoby’s mom ran over to the Maid Of Honor only to find out she dropped their rings in the grass! No worries, they found them. It became a highlight of their forever day!

To CMBC Bride + Groom:

There will be ups and downs but just as long as you keep those three things in mind.. You will get through anything!
