← Ocala Wedding Photographers :: Michelle & Will’s Blessed Trinity Catholic Church Ceremony & Silver Springs Reception
We first met Layne & Ryan during Layne’s sister’s wedding last year in St Augustine. You can see Lake & Jeff’s beautiful wedding here. It wasn’t too long afterwards that Ryan proposed to Layne and they contacted us to make sure we were available to document their March wedding at Bellemoor Plantation. We are so excited!!
Layne and Ryan grew up just a couple of streets apart in Ocala. And even though Ryan graduated with Layne’s sister, they never really spoke until 2010 when they ran into each other while with mutual friends in downtown Ocala. Afterwards, Ryan called one of the friends to get to her number to ask her out immediately.(his words) Their first date was dinner at Carrabbas followed by hours of conversation. And love happened! Ryan proposed to Layne riverfront last September during a trip to the mountains. Nice!
Layne and Ryan absolutely love being together doing anything, but they really love airboating. They also love camping and just being outdoors, close to water if possible. They are excited about planning their lives together (which is WAY more important than planning a wedding) and can’t wait to just be married and start the next chapter of their lives as husband and wife.
Mike went and spent some time with them in Inverness one afternoon getting to know them, their adorable dogs and learning more about who they are and what they love to do. He just couldn’t do a session with them and not get on an airboat. It is one of their favorite things to do! Are they not adorable??
Thanks, Layne & Ryan, for sharing yourselves with us. We are honored to able to capture this amazing time in your lives. We are so excited and happy for you!
