Itasca Country Club Summer Wedding | Mary Beth and Ryan


On your marks, get set...go! Ryan and Mary Beth are such a special couple. I don't know many that will race across the a bridge in full wedding attire for fun! That's just the type of couple they are though.


Out of all my 2020 couples, I got to know Mary Beth and Ryan the longest. They booked me three years before their wedding date thanks to the pandemic. As happy as I am they finally had their wedding, I am also sad to say good bye (for now!).


Their wedding day at Itasca Country Club was incredible. Mary Beth put so much thought into every single detail. Including a song to play when guests entered the reception space, "Be Our Guest" from Beauty and the Beast. YAY!!!! Yes, I was totally geeking out and singing along!!


So many special touches. So many happy tears.


During cocktail hour the couple did a private room reveal and it was more than apparent Mary Beth's vision was coming true in it's full glory. Following the reveal the couple did a private first dance. It was sweet to watch them together. You can feel the bond and love they have for one another as well as for their friends and family. So, so much love. I am honored to have been able to witness it.


Congrats Mary Beth and Ryan!!! This is not goodbye. This is a pause until your next grand adventure occurs!!! Hugs!! Joy
