The First Encounter

Ryan and I flew to Australia to visit his family. We went on a hike to find a waterfall at a place called Mount Tamborine. We hiked all the way there, it was beautiful! Ryan was fidgeting with his camera gear while I was looking at the waterfall. I was so excited about how awesome the view was I had no idea Ryan was setting up his camera. He called my name, I turned around and he was on one knee. Best hike yet!  



In Preparation

We picked Myrtle Grove Plantation because it was close to the town where we first met and my home town. We live in California now, so we had to plan our wedding across the country. I couldn’t have done it without my mama back home helping us out! Since Ryan is Australian and I’m Southern we wanted our wedding to reflect us, so we made sure to focus on fun little details such as having Aussie treats and Southern snacks.  

 



The Big Day

Our wedding day was the most amazing day I could have ever imagined. My favorite moment was our first look. When we got to spend time alone for just a split second. It was so special. We had a short and sweet ceremony under a giant pecan tree. It was supposed to rain that day and we got lucky with the most beautiful Carolina blue skies all day. Our reception was so fun thanks to all the love and laughs from our friends and family. I could not have dreamed of a better day.



The Retreat

Ryan and I flew to Orlando and stayed there for a couple of days before our trip to the Bahamas. We swam with wild manatees the day before hurricane Matthew hit where we were staying. Luckily, the storm wasn’t too bad and we got to continue the rest of our honeymoon in the Bahamas. We had so much fun! A couple months later we had a honeymoon part 2 in Australia. We rented a camper van and road tripped from Brisbane to Sydney.
