The weather was absolutely perfect for an August wedding. The clouds drifted in and out and kept the temperature cool. Dawn was such a glowing bride. Giddy with excitement...So happy to be marrying the man of her dreams.
Dawn planned her Washington wedding from her home in California where she resides with Ryan. She grew up in Sumner and was excited to have a Washington wedding. When Dawn called me we connected immediately... we talked for a LONG time about all the exciting details! Her mom Denise helped with all the plans and was the one who found Rock Creek Gardens... the perfect location for Ryan and Dawn because they have a great love of the outdoors. (Ryan asked Dawn to marry him when they were out hiking.) Denise is just one of those people who will make you feel like part of the family. I loved all the hugs and smiles and good vibes Denise was sending! Dawn was very proud to tell me that she was inspired by her parents loving relationship which celebrated its 36th anniversary in June.
Dawn and Ryan met through E-Harmony about a year before their wedding. Dawn's brother also was very lucky to have found his wonderful wife through E-Harmony... PROOF that it does work! Ü
I think the two moments that will forever be in my memory about Ryan and Dawn's wedding will be:
*When Dawn was upstairs getting ready and was calling out the window to Ryan (calling out and the hiding behind the drapes of course) and telling him she loved him and couldn't wait to see him.
*The fact that she told me ahead of time... I will probably kiss Ryan multiple times as we walk back down the aisle after our wedding. When he kisses me it sends electricity through my body! (How awesome is that!)
