Jenni & Ryan September 18, 2010

Congratulations to the bride and groom!

Our Story

We got engaged at McCory Gardens in Brookings SD.
The proposal did not go as planned, I was really tired after a long stressful week and all I wanted to do was eat and go home and start packing for camping. Ryan kept trying to get me to play frisbee golf but I wasnt dressed for that. Then he wanted me to get out of the turck and walk through McCory gardens I kept insisting on eating and going home. Needless to say I was very happy I got out of the truck and went for a walk through McCory Gardens. We stopped by some beautiful flowers he told me too turn around and I did. After I turned back around he was on one knee and asked me to MARRY HIM.....and I SAID "YES"! I was caught off guard but it was a very happy time for both of us!


We are very excited for everyone to share our special day with us! We hope it will be a fun time for everyone.
