“Hello. Nice to meet you.” She said upon meeting Ryan in passing at Lucas Park Grill in St.Louis. He knew he wanted more than introductions and pleasantries. He wanted to know her. So the very next day when a random number was texting her and asking her out – upon learning it was Ryan, Trisha figured “why not!”. He didn’t know her favorite food was Mexican, but the fact that he took her to Chava’s Mexican Restaurant was definitely a plus. They talked about family, friends, work, and extra curricular activities, and things went flawlessly. Before they knew it, it was time to say goodnight – both hoping for a second date. And there was a second, and a third, and so on. Until one day, everything would change…
They’d be planning their trip to Denver Colorado for months. Ryan would be participating on an 80 miles bike ride through the mountains, and the rest of the time they planned to go zip lining, bicycling, and white water rafting. A very senic and adventurous trip filled with thrills and excitement. However Trisha had no idea how much excitement awaited her. As they walked through the streets in downtown Denver while waiting for the microbreweries to open, Ryan asked her “Are you ready to celebrate?” After recently getting a new job, she assumed that’s what he was referring to as she asked “Yes! Wait. You mean for my new job?”. As he dropped to one knee he said “And the rest of our lives together. Will you marry me?”
Trisha happily said yes and they spent the rest of their vacation celebrating before coming home to celebrate more with family and friends.
The celebration continues as the two say their “I dos” next summer in Hermann MO.
Enjoy a few favorites from their engagement session!!!
