“Absence makes the heart grow fonder”. Devony and Ryan know very well the truth in that saying. For almost a year, the couple lived long distance with Devony in Texas and Ryan in Florida. On a late December night Ryan had a life changing surprise for Devony. Unknowingly to her, he flew to Texas and while she was working he set up lights, candles, and cute “I love you” and “Mr and Mrs” banners in her backyard. When she arrived home from work, there was Ryan on his knee surrounded by family and friends. Devony said yes! He then led her inside to show a video he and their loved ones made speaking about the couple’s relationship and what the two meant to everyone.
A year following the proposal the couple became husband and wife in the CCR Wedding Chapel. The couple wanted everyone to feel the love of God present on their wedding day. The scripture, 1 John 4:19, hung above the Chapel doors. During the ceremony the couple, along with both of their parents, participated in Communion (The Lord’s Supper). The ceremony was just the start to a fun-filled evening! Everyone enjoyed great food, good music and each other’s company. There is no denying this couple’s love for each other and our love for them! What a pleasure it was to work with them!
