As Elizabeth and Ryan took a private moment during their first look to envelop the emotion of the pre-wedding wonders, they both got giddy in each other, Ryan excited like a small boy with a new toy, treasuring that personal moment together with his bride-to-be before heading to the sacred matrimonial ceremony.
In the beautiful expanse of St. Patrick's Church in Nashua, Elizabeth, on the arm of her father, walked down the aisle in a lace-encrusted Maggie Sottero dress, with a corset bodice. The ceremony was full of personal touches; the bride's sister captivated guests with a violin solo and a close friend of the family led the guests in a vocal psalm. Attended by two of her sisters and her flower girl niece, the girls wore knee length delicate mint green chiffon dresses. Their ensembles were completed by the sharp attire of Ryan and the groomsmen who sported grey suits, accented with mint green ties.
Sharing a love of science fiction, Ryan and Elizabeth designed each reception table to sport a different Sci-Fi movie or TV title. This motif was highlighted with a Dr. Who themed cake, designed and made by the bride's sister, Mary. It was topped with a Tardis and accented with Daleks, not to EXTERMINATE!
In a family full of musical talent, it's no wonder that ballroom dance classes brought this couple together. It was only fitting that they had a choreographed routine for their first dance together as husband and wife. Ryan & Elizabeth danced to "Thinking out Loud" by Ed Sheeran, with an dramatic Bolero which portrayed their own personalities. As the maid of honor toasted to a "perfectly matched couple", the night was full of ballroom dance friends and family who danced the night away.
