Blaine and Ryan are prime examples that the sky is not the limit, and to never give up on your dreams. Blaine (a flight attendant) and Ryan (a pilot) had their first date on a cool evening in the Spring of 2008. After their short walk through Riverfront Park, they both knew their lives would soon change forever. That “short walk” ended up lasting a few hours until almost midnight, as Blaine and Ryan talked about just about anything and everything.
Ryan knew he would have to leave early the next morning back to California; so he asked Blaine that evening when he could see him again. Blaine replied with a simple, “whenever you can”, and to Blaine’s surprise- Ryan flew up that very next day from California just to have lunch with Blaine.
After a month of dinner dates and movie nights, they became an official couple on June 13th, 2008. One year after that, Ryan received a job offer in Miami, so the two moved there together in October of 2009.
After a few more years of dating, new jobs, school, and buying a condo in South Beach, Miami-Ryan asked Blaine to marry him and June 13th, 2012. Two years later they held their rehearsal dinner at the Steamplant Restaurant on their 6 year anniversary (an anniversary they also share with Ryan’s grandparents).
Blaine & Ryan could not have asked for a more beautiful Ceremony and Reception with about 135 family and friends from all over the country (and many from outside the country).

Meghan and Kevin met on a night out with a mutual friend….Kevin was the shy, silent type and Meghan, was, well, everything but…. she made him dance with her to, of all songs, “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.” Meghan left a few days later to go back to school in Boston, but they kept in touch and when she moved back to Spokane, several months later, they began to see each other on a regular basis.
Fast forward 5 years later, Meghan and Kevin are still inseparable, Kevin is slightly less shy and silent and Meghan, as always is still a talkative, energetic, giggly girl. They’re excited to be newly married and are so grateful to have started off with such a supportive group of friends and family around them.

Our Love Story (from the amazing writer groom Tony):
It’s ironic how sometimes the smallest thing can change your life in such a drastic way. After all the time and effort we put into “doing big things” and “going somewhere”, more often than not we seem to find ourselves following the path that puzzle pieces itself together before our next foot can hit the ground.
For us, the small thing that paved the way for our future were these three simple words spoken by me on the most ordinary of mornings…”Good morning, Beautiful”.
After knowing Nichole for nearly four years, our relationship had been nothing but strictly military based. After the day I said good morning to her, our relationship would develop into something that Love itself would envy.
A short 42 days later, 10 days in Australia, 3 diamonds set in white gold, 2 trips around the world, and 1 answer of “Yes, yes, yes, a thousand times yes”, she would be my wife, my best friend, my most trusted confidant, my soul mate, and even my pain in the butt…but most importantly, my one and only.
We have God to thank for everything we have and where we are in life. We were able to find love, laughter, and the greatest friendship of all in a place where neither of us thought possible. And it’s a story the Grandkids will here time and time again!
