"Bark, bark, bark!" Mallory and Ryan's pug was an important part of the ceremony, and of course had a front row seat! Surrounded by friends and family, Mallory and Ryan stood in a quaint grassy field in a backyard in Lafayette, as they said "I Do".
Mallory and Ryan first met through mutual friends . As soon as their friends saw how Mallory and Ryan interacted with one another, they all knew that they were the perfect match for one another! It might sound cliche, but what can you say, when you know, you know, and Mallory and Ryan's friends really did know!
While at a barbecue with friends, Ryan chose a moment to get down on one knee and ask Mallory if she would marry him! What a perfect touch, especially since their friends knew they were the perfect match from the beginning! The ring that Ryan proposed with has special meaning to the family as it was the same ring that his father had given to his mother many years before!
Mallory and Ryan enjoy spending lots of time with their Pug, and relaxing at home with a bottle of beer and a glass of wine! When they aren't laying low, you can find these two hard at work! Mallory has moved up in the ranks and manages a Safeway, and Ryan is constantly put to the test with electricity, working as an electrician! As Mallory proved at her wedding, she is great at decorating, and has a good eye for details! When it came time to asking for help to plan the wedding, Mallory's family was instantly onboard and couldn't wait to pitch in. Mallory is very close to her family, and it is so wonderful that this family of sisters has grown by a new brother in-law!
Mallory and Ryan, thank you for letting me follow you two around and photograph you on your special day! There was a lot going on, and pictures were not your thing, but you two rocked it! You followed directions like champs, and there are definitely some great candids in your gallery! I hope that you two enjoyed your honeymoon in Monterey! Looking forward to see where your future takes you. I hope it is filled with more pugs and lots of relaxing weekends with one another!
