It was love at first yell.
Hilarious, lively, and simply beautiful.
Blessed to share the stunning Los Angeles Athletic Club and Oviatt Penthouse wedding of Tami and Ryan! It was so wonderful to work alongside the fabulous Rubi Anne Weddings and Special Events once more for this celebration.
First, you’ve got to hear about their love story, as only they can tell it.
the love story (from the couple)
Ryan and I met at a club in Hollywood. We were both there for a mutual friend’s birthday (well, Tami was invited by a girlfriend to increase the ratio of girls at the party).
Like most clubs, it was crowded and there were lots of guys hitting on girls left and right. So Ryan was talking to Tami’s friend Julia and she got really mad. She thought, “Hey, who is this jerk harassing my friend when she is trying to enjoy her drink?!”
So Tami marched up to Ryan and yelled, ” Hey, why are you harassing my friend?”
To this Ryan said, ” No, no. We are friends.”
This comment made Tami even more enraged and she said, “Really? Are you legit?”
And well the rest of history, it was love at first yell.
Ryan asked Tami out the next day with the pickup line of, ” Do you want to make your grandmother proud by going out with a nice Japanese boy?”
romantic proposal (from the couple)
We went to New York City for Valentine’s weekend 2016, the coldest weekend all winter. We saw a Broadway show together and, on the last day, Ryan asked Tami to get him a chocolate from the box of chocolates they had.
When she opened it, there was the ring.
the wedding day
Tami and Ryan, you both are hilarious. From Game of Thrones jokes to the good-thing-this-wasn’t-on-video moments, we had such an incredible time at your wedding!
Never before had we met a bride who exuded both power and playfulness. Tami, you will be an unforgettable bride no doubt. And you and Ryan are perfect together.
Congratulations to you both! We’re so thrilled for the two of you and are so blessed to have gotten to know you and celebrate your wedding day <3
May you have a lifetime of joy bending the knee! May it be full of Hello Kitty worthy moments!
With all our love,
