Nikki & Ryan : Get Married in Pittsburgh

We recently had the pleasure of photographing another wedding for the Urban family.  Close to this time last year we photographed their son Denny’s wedding to Natalie… this year their daughter Nikki and Ryan’s amazing wedding.  That was it for this family — Their first daughter Megan married a month prior to Denny out of state!!   This is one amazing family and I’m honored to call them my friends.

Nikki & Ryan’s story via Nikki …

We met my sophomore year in college. One of my best friends from college, Ashley, just started dating Ryan’s cousin, Danny. Ashley told me that Danny was coming over and bringing his cousin. That night we played guitar hero and just laughed the whole time. Nothing came from that night but Ryan had a crush on me. Fast forward three years later, we were both in Ashley and Danny’s wedding. We spent the whole night talking and having fun. Ryan told me he was going to be in Pittsburgh the following week for work and asked me to dinner. I said yes and we’ve been together ever since.

How he proposed:

We drove in to Pittsburgh for Christmas to spend with family. We arrived on a Friday around dinner time and decided to get a bite to eat. Ryan knew right away where we were going to eat (which is out of the ordinary as we usually converse for 30 minutes trying to figure something out). We went to Yokoso Japanese steak house (which is where we had our first date). We ate dinner and at the end of dinner, Ryan handed me a gift bag and said “I wanted to give you a Christmas present early”. I immediately told him that was unfair, that I couldn’t open it because I did not have his with me. He insisted on me opening it. I opened the present to find a precious moment figurine (which I collect) of a boy down on one knee holding a ring box that says “please say yes” with a ring placed inside. I looked at Ryan with shock on my face and asked him if this is real? He chuckled and said “trust me it’s real”. Then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!

Wishing you both a life time of making more memories… {{hugs, France – Bob & Dawn)
