The First Date: February 27, 2019)
“Almost 30 minutes early, he nervously entered Tipsy Bean, a local coffee shop, and waited for what seemed to be the longest half hour of his life, but from the moment she walked in and with every moment with her thereafter, time ceased to exist. After closing down the coffee shop on that cold, wintry day, the rest as they say is history, as much fewer days were spent apart as they were spent together.” – Ryan
The Proposal: December 31st, 2019
After dinner with her family, Ryan asked Meagan to close her eyes as they drove, making sure to take the long way to their destination, because he had one last New Year’s Eve surprise for her. With her eyes still closed, he pulled into a parking lot, parked the car, and guided her out into the cold. After walking for a short time, Ryan stopped, got down on one knee, and told Meagan to open her eyes. Right there, underneath the awning of the coffee shop of their first date, she said YES!” – Meagan

HOW WE FELT ON OUR BIG DAY?
“I’m All Your’n” by Tyler Childers
Despite the shortened guest list (thank you COVID), our day pretty much ended up as planned. We feel The Running Horse Farm was able to match our style and bring our decor/theme to life perfectly. We are still getting so many compliments from friends and families about how amazing the venue was and how beautiful our day looked! 🙂 We both really enjoyed dancing the evening away just as if we were still dancing alone in our kitchen!
