I met Ryan + Maribel over dinner at Vinaigrette and after a few drinks, I knew they were my kind of people. They're an up-for-anything type of couple sure to make you laugh and have a good time.
Ryan + Maribel met at work, and although Ryan made a move the first chance he got, Maribel was oblivious to his attempts. Weeks later, a few of Maribel's co-workers invited Ryan out for happy hour, and the rest evolved to what it is today. Read their full story here.
They planned on a luxury wedding focused on having fun. Their color scheme was blush, gold, ivory and sandstone. The much anticipated day had arrived, and Maribel was found sitting in a room of makeup and hairspray, sipping mimosas with her girls. Ryan was off getting a headstart on the day drinking, playing pool and laughing with his buddies.
Family and friends flew in from out of state to celebrate the union of these two, and it did not disappoint! Ryan + Maribel went all out to make sure everyone had fun. LIT doesn't even describe it. The wedding party made their grand entrance before introducing Ryan + Maribel as husband and wife. After dinner, the toasts revealed some of their childhood memories and how they uniquely complement each other. From the very beginning Maribel told Ryan, "I'm getting my dancers", and sure enough she pulled through! They were absolutely amazing! The evening was accompanied by more dancing, drinks, and an ice cream bar. Ryan + Maribel undoubtedly enjoyed themselves and the time they had with family and friends. They danced the night away with anyone that dared.
"An overwhelming day of happiness, anticipation, love and unity that we'll remember and cherish for the rest of our lives." - Maribel
R + M you both have an amazing and truly loving family along with fun friends that add the right amount of crazy to your lives. I wish the both of you along with Max the very best!
For those of you here for wedding inspiration, here's Maribel's word of advice: "Hire a professional wedding planner if you don't want to pull your hair out. It may be expensive but well worth it!"
