Jennifer and Ryan: A Happy Union

Five years ago, Jennifer met Ryan while coaching his middle child, Sarah, in gymnastics. Ryan was a single father trying to raise three kids on his own. Since the two lived near each other, Ryan asked if Jennifer could help take Sarah to and from gymnastics. Initially, they were just friends…picking on each other for the sports teams they liked, talking about shared music interests and keeping things light. When Ryan asked if Jennifer could hang out sometime, she was very hesitant. After all, she was his daughter’s gymnastics coach, he was newly divorced, AND he had three kids! One day, she gave in and it was one of the best decisions she’s ever made.

Their relationship developed very slowly, which was intentional. There were hurdles to overcome; some minor, some not so minor. Jennifer and Ryan faced each obstacle head on and overcame them relatively easily as their relationship blossomed and grew. Soon, they were madly in love.

When Ryan was sure that Jennifer was the one, he talked to the kids and included them in every decision he made. From picking the ring, to how he would propose, and when. When she said yes, the kids were thrilled, making it easy for her to step into such a big role in their lives! The couple included the kids in the wedding planning process, feeling it was the right way of joining two families. It was decided that Landon would serve as ring boy and groomsman and that Emma and Sarah would serve as flower girls and bridesmaids.

The venue selection process was challenging! They had looked at so many places with no luck, not wanting a typical Las Vegas wedding. However, when visiting Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs, they fell in love. The beautiful green trees and old whitewashed buildings transported them far away from the bustling city or dry desert feel of Las Vegas. The mountains, peacocks and geese, September sky and scenery at the park had them excited to get the photos back from their photographer. The park fit their outdoor, upscale, fiesta theme perfectly and provided a beautiful backdrop to share their special day with friends and family.

Jennifer and Ryan’s Christian faith is something that is very important to them as a couple and as a family. Being regular church goers, they asked their pastor to be their wedding officiant. Also, being a blended family, the couple wanted to symbolize becoming one by taking communion as a family. They had their pastor pray over the five of them as they took holy communion; the bread to represent his body, and juice to represent his blood. It was a simple gesture, but a meaningful and powerful moment for all of them to share as they officially became a family.

The happy couple reflected on their wedding planning experience with Emily Grace as follows:

“Emily Grace was fantastic to work with. She brought a level of planning and executing expertise that we simply didn’t have. When we would meet at our location, she would listen closely to our thoughts and ideas. She would always provide feedback. She would offer a different solution and provide the reasons why she felt that way, or she would agree with a suggestion and provide examples of a time when she had done or seen that in the past and why or how it worked.

“She and her husband were so thoughtful when it came to all the little things, as well as the huge things! She communicated with and managed our vendors very well and was very organized. She kept us on time and kept the party moving along on our special day. Having someone mindful of the timeline, what the couple wants to accomplish in the time available, was huge. Time would have gotten away from us if not for her! She was supportive and encouraging, and extremely helpful before and after the wedding. She was some of the best money spent on our wedding! We hope that’s a nice compliment! She was a calming, trustworthy partner during our wedding that we needed and truly appreciated. We would definitely recommend her to our friends and family, or anyone looking for a great wedding coordinator!”

    something like this. Please let me know if you run into
    anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  • Sharron says:

    Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was
    wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog
    soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to
    get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • Emily Grace says:

      Hi Sharron! I don’t have any experience in coding as well. My niece helps me with my websites. She simply drag and drop content into my websites. When an error arises, she contacts support or she fixes it herself or both. As for my blog, in wordpress there is a section called “posts”. I simply upload the content for my blog and wordpress does the rest. I suggest to find a web building site that works for you to make your blogging easy for you to maintain and use. I hope this helps!

    The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.

    I constantly spent my half an hour to read this
    webpage’s articles every day along with a cup of coffee.

  • Kandis says:

    Hey! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog like yours take a lot of work?
    I’m completely new to blogging however I do write in my journal everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience
    and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring
    bloggers. Appreciate it!

    • Emily Grace says:

      Hi Kandis! I personally struggle with writing blog posts and coming up with ideas for blog posts. My niece helps me keep up to date so she takes the some of the work load off my shoulders. It took me two years to establish my blog. At the beginning, I had no comments in my blog posts meaning no one was reading my blog posts. My tips are be patient, keep blogging, and enjoy blogging! I hope this helps!

  • Tiffani says:

    Your web site provided us with valuable info to work on. You have done
    a formidable job and our whole community will be grateful to you.

  • Vickie says:

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I really appreciate your efforts and I am waiting for your next write ups thanks once

  • Finley says:

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems
    of plagorism or copyright violation? My
    site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored
    myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up
    all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from
    being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    • Emily Grace says:

      Hello Finley! Personally, I don’t worry about plagiarism because I don’t have the time to check who copied what I wrote. If someone sees my content and writes about it, I am just glad that they read what I wrote and took something away from it. Last note about this, anyone can be inspired from another person’s work.

  • Lakesha says:

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    But just imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could definitely be one of
    the most beneficial in its field. Great blog!

    • Emily Grace says:

      Hello Lakesha! Thank you for your suggestion. I am looking into magazine style blog posts. In this style, it has more photos than words. Hopefully, my future posts will be in this style. Thank again for your suggestion!

  • Connie says:

    Hi superb website! Does running a blog such as this require a great deal
    of work? I’ve very little understanding of coding but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyhow, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please
    share. I understand this is off topic however I just wanted to ask.

    • Emily Grace says:

      Hello Connie! Thank you for enjoying my website! Similar to yourself, I do not have coding experience. My niece helps me with my website so she takes some of the work load off my shoulders. She installs and maintains my websites. She, also, does the coding if needed. Most of the time, she drag and drop the content. For blog posts, in wordpress there is a section called “posts”. In this section, I just upload the content for my blog post and wordpress does everything else. I suggest to find a web building site that allows you to blog and maintain easily. Also, patience is needed when blogging for the first time because at first you won’t have comments or likes. I suggest just to keep blogging and you’ll get to where you want to be. I hope this helps!

  • My husband and i felt absolutely thrilled Raymond managed to carry out his homework out of the ideas he obtained through your web page. It’s not at all simplistic to simply possibly be offering steps that many many others might have been selling. Therefore we figure out we’ve got you to thank because of that. The most important illustrations you have made, the easy site menu, the relationships you help to foster – it is all powerful, and it’s assisting our son in addition to our family imagine that that theme is fun, which is certainly unbelievably essential. Many thanks for everything!

  • I needed to draft you one bit of observation to finally thank you as before for those gorgeous ideas you’ve shared at this time. It’s really wonderfully open-handed with you to make without restraint just what a number of people might have sold as an electronic book in order to make some profit for themselves, precisely since you might have done it in the event you decided. These creative ideas also worked to be the good way to understand that other people have the identical dream just as my own to know lots more with reference to this issue. Certainly there are thousands of more fun periods in the future for individuals who read your website.

  • Many thanks! This a awesome webpage!

  • Some really nice stuff on this site, I enjoy it.

  • Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  • Jennie says:

    This is truly useful, thanks.
