One would think that a wedding reception inside a state park would be a little odd. Well, yes and no. Ryan and Nikki became husband and wife on Saturday, June 13, 2009. Their reception was held at the Bel Air Mansion inside of Belle Isle State Park. The view was amazing. Although by the end of the night, we all had a difficult time seeing each other, the energy was overwhelming.
The Love Story of Ryan and Nikki began on a mistake. Nikki forgot her cell phone on the way to the beach, but turned around to head home. She ended up at a school function and there HE was. Nikki was smitten. Ryan would astound her with his boyish charm, but would offer her the night in shining armor at nearly the same time. The proposal was sweet and touching on that Valentine’s night of 2008. And this evening, romance was in the air as Ryan and Nikki united, sharing their celebration of love with family and friends.
