This is the sweetest love story and I just have to let Erica tell it in her own words:
"Ryan and I met online, and we exchanged messages for a couple of weeks until he asked me out on a date. Our first date was the most magical event that either of us had experienced. I knew during that first date that I would marry him. A couple of months later, we went on a day trip to Grandfather Mountain, and on the side of that mountain, Ryan told me that he loved me for the first time. And a week later, I said it back. Fast forward a couple more months, we're on a cruise together. The second night of the cruise on formal night, we're going around to the different photo stations and taking photos as we were all dressed up. After the photos were taken at one station in particular, I begin to walk off the set, and Ryan grabs my hand and pulls me back. He begins to describe how much he loves me and wants to spend the rest of his life with me. In that moment, he drops to one knee and asks if I will marry him. And I say YES!"
I love that we did their engagement session at Riverwalk Carolina in Rock Hill, where they went on their first date. I think it makes it all the more a special experience for them. In just 4 more days, they will be married! I can't wait to capture this wedding because there is a love that radiates from them like no other.
