In true Baltimore fashion, Ali and Ryan’s relationship found its roots in 2011 in a Federal Hill Bar, with the Ravens defeating the Steelers. Before the end of the season Ryan had moved for work to Austin, Texas. Ali followed him there continuing her work with Under Armour. In October of 2013, Ryan proposed to Ali on a beach in the British Virgin Islands.
Ali and Ryan chose a December wedding to make the most of the most festive time of year. They started the weekend with a welcome party at the Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park, catered by Classic Catering and continued the celebration at the Marriott Waterfront. The girls gathered at Ali’s parents’ home, while the boys prepped at the Four Seasons Baltimore. The day was full of laughter and very emotional. Everyone was so excited, full of energy, love and support. It was an amazing day for these two families to come together. With a wedding party of 28 and over 300 guests it was a truly beautiful sight at the Walters Art Museum wittnessing these two become one.
