Look it’s Prince William! Wait, what?? Just kidding! But that is how Alex and Ryan met! Alex explains “We met having a little too much fun at a bar in Tampa. I thought he looked like Price William and my best friend (and maid of honor) bet me to go up to him because she was convinced he had been in a certain fraternity at UF and I didn’t believe her. I went up to him and lost the bet so I had to buy her a drink…Ryan loves to say I got a lot of free drinks out of that bet! We dated until I graduated college and then moved in together in Orlando. Work moved us to Ft. Lauderdale where we bought a house, got a dog, and are FINALLY getting married!”
On their wedding day, they got ready at Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa. Next, their ceremony was at St. Jude Catholic Church. Finally, their reception was at Out of the Blue in Jupiter, where they partied the night away!
About the Groom: Ryan grew up in Marlboro, NJ where he always excelled academically in school. He ended up moving to Florida to attend UF where he was an active member in his fraternity and studied Finance. He also received his MBA from UF in 2012. Ryan is an avid Raiders football fan and also loves playing soccer. He works in finance for Lockheed Martin.
About the Bride: Alex was born outside of Philadelphia but spent most of her childhood in Florida. She went to UF where she was very involved in student government and the business school. She loves running, exercising, and has played competitive golf since she was 6. Alex also has a passion for decorating. She works in South Florida as a unit manager for Altria.
About the Couple: Alex and Ryan love to work on projects around their house. They also love wine and their favorite place to go is Napa (where Ryan can also catch a Raiders game). They love entertaining and are always hosting BBQs and get togethers at their house where everyone hangs by the pool.
What’s Next? They hope to spend the next few years taking some really cool vacations around the world.
