Elizabeth & Ryan | Wedding at The Wintergreen Resort in Wintergreen, VA

Elizabeth and Ryan's mountaintop wedding at Wintergreen Resort was nothing shy of an absolute dream! They planned a November wedding assuming it would be a chilly event, especially up on the mountain, but that was far from the case! It was warm, sunny, and packed with so much love and fun! Elizabeth and Ryan wanted to make sure they had the time of their lives on their special day, and they wanted the same for their guests. From some of the best dances we've ever seen to countless belly laughs during the ceremony, this wedding day was simply the best! Every second of the day was fun-filled and everywhere you turned, you could just see people smiling (even under their masks).

The couple met in the Aerospace Engineering program at Virginia Tech. As we were getting to know them, they shared their proposal story:

"We took a last-minute trip to the Bahamas in February 2017. During the course of our stay, we won a bottle of wine by leading the “month’s longest congo line” around the pool at the resort. After spending the following day relaxing on the beach, Ryan suggested walking down the beach to find a spot to watch the sunset and enjoy the wine. After sitting down and pouring a couple glasses, Ryan started saying some really sweet things that made Elizabeth cry, but that neither of them can recall now. It ended with a ring and a “Yes!” Upon returning to the States, they discovered that their “engagement wine” cost approximately $4, and were delighted that they could afford to stockpile a lifetime of “engagement wine” at a very low cost. Getting a good deal is one of Ryan’s favorite things, while drinking wine is one of Elizabeth’s."

We wish Elizabeth and Ryan the absolute best in their years ahead! Here's to countless deals and tons of wine!!
