How did you two meet?
We went to high school together. Nick asked me to go to Senior prom and we have been together ever since!
Why did you choose to get married at the location that you did?
We both grew up going to the cape (Alicia- Falmouth and Nick in Hyannis) in the summer. We both created a lot of memories over the years at the cape together and both always dreamed of one day getting married there.
Were there any happy surprises that happened at the wedding?
Before the wedding we both loved receiving notes from one another. Reading the letters was so sweet and reminded us how lucky we were to be getting married. We were both blown away with how the day turned out. It was better than we could have imagined. I was so happy with how the venue looked and how all the little details that we planned for so long came together. Also, so happy with the weather! Couldn’t have asked for a better day.
What moment sticks out to you above all of the others from the wedding?
The vows of course! Also, when we walked down the aisle exiting the ceremony and saw how happy everyone was. Also, we were blown away with how much fun everyone had dancing all night. We were so pleased with the Boston Common Band.
Now that the wedding is over, what are you going to do with all of your free time?!
Enjoy each other and relax!

I first met Katie & Ryan while filming Katie’s sister’s wedding (Remember this magical winter celebration?) in January of 2016. The biggest compliment that I can ever receive is to have the honor of working with the same family multiple times. When Katie contacted me about her upcoming mountaintop celebration, I had to make it happen!
It has been an absolute delight to get to witness not just one milestone for this family, but two. I couldn’t be happier to see the incredibly strong and loving family that Katie has joined. Their love for one another and for their families is the stuff that fairytales are written about.
Congratulations Ryan & Katie, enjoy this next crazy adventure!

I’m not a writer, so I feel as if any blog post that I compose on the subject will fall flat. Nothing I could possibly construct will display the seriousness of the subject. All I can say is that it’s often those with the loudest laughs and the biggest smiles that are suffering the deepest.
