[Married] Lara & Ryan

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Brock!!! Such a super cute couple, these college sweethearts tied the knot on New Year's day in Roanoke, VA. They opted for "First Look" and as usual Ashley & I teared up at that emotional & magical moment where the soon-to-be Mr. & Mrs. see each other for the first time all dressed up-Lara commented "I've never seen him dressed up, he looks SO good!" We also stole them away for a few minutes during cocktail hour for some one-on-one shots and to give them a breather. They really seemed to enjoy the few minutes alone together (photographers don't count) after such a whirlwind day. My personal faves were the salt ceremony, wedding exit to Journey on the piano, table markers featuring photos from their travels together, Lara's & the bridesmaids handmade jewelry by her grandmother, ballroom dance lessons, first dance to Journey's "Faithfully", Bohemian Rhapsody performed by Lara & Carly (I sure hope somebody got that on video!) Congrats Lara & Ryan & I hope Texas welcomes you with open arms and becomes home sweet home! (While we are bundling up trudging thru snow and trying to keep our feet planted on the ground in 40 mph wind gusts (which knocking my internet out-AHHH torture), the Brock's are spending evenings on the deck enjoying sunny 70 degree temps in their new home of San Antonio, TX!) I still like you though. ;)
