Real Mia Grace Bride: Wedding of Brittney and Ryan
We can’t help but obsess over Brittney and Ryan’s gorgeous wedding photographs! You can just tell that these newlyweds are crazy about one another and they had an absolute blast on their very special day. We are so glad we could be a small part of this special occasion and we are thrilled to share their love story with all of our Mia Grace family!
“I was a bit apprehensive about looking for my dress. I had seen several dresses and I wasn't completely sold on what style of dress I wanted. After requesting a consultation online, someone from Mia Grace called me and scheduled an appointment right away. She was very pleasant and said that she would make sure to accommodate my group of 6 people. My experience was wonderful! We were greeted with smiles when we walked in and my guests were seated comfortably in a private corner of the store just for us. My consultant was extremely helpful and considerate. After trying on just 5 dresses, I found the perfect dress for me. I can't say enough how happy I was. I would recommend Mia Grace to anyone looking for that perfect Say Yes to the Dress moment. I even returned for my bridesmaids dresses and the dress for my mom. The entire staff went above and beyond to accommodate our needs” – Brittney
Their Love Story
Ryan and Brittney met at a mutual friend's birthday party at Dave & Buster’s. After becoming fast friends that night, they spent the rest of that month sharing their lives and dreams through phone calls and visits. It was clear that they were compatible in every way. Ryan told Brittney that he didn’t just want to be her friend and they became official one month after they met.
About midway through 2013 Ryan knew that he was going to propose to Brittney, he just didn’t know exactly when. In February the following year, he went to the mall with his mom to shop for the engagement ring and he knew it was the ring when he saw it. It was simple and clean, but still elegant. Ryan picked mid-July to propose to Brittney in front of close friends and family at Dave & Buster's, which is where they first met! When the time was right, Ryan got on one knee to ask Brittney for her hand in marriage. Of course, she said “Yes!” to spending the rest of her life with her best friend.
A Dream Come True
On November 3rd, Brittney and Ryan tied the knot at the Westin Saint Louis in the Cupples Ballroom surrounded by their closest friends and family! After the wonderful ceremony, they continued the celebration with a fantastic reception at the Promenade by Westin! Their wedding style was all about romance and warmth that the fall season brings. Their theme was #ANightToRnB, which signifies their initials and expresses their love for R&B music! Britteny looked breathtaking in the Harriet from the Sophia Tolli Collection for Mon Cheri Bridal! This stunning strapless A-line gown has a semi-sheer neckline and hand-beaded lace appliques flowing down the gathered skirt! She paired this gorgeous design with a fantastic cut edge veil from Bel Aire Bridal that features scattered lace flowers cascading down the entire veil!
