It’s often said that soul mates are fated to be together. When Ryan’s cousin, Samantha, set him up with Dena, fate showed its hand in Dena’s fortune cookie. “Your love life will bring you great happiness.” The two have always shared a deep passion for sports (particularly the Ravens and the Orioles) and for traveling, whether it be a day trip or a weekend get away. In January of 2015 Ryan proposed with a note in the mailbox leading Dena to her beautiful ring.
Dena and Ryan had the most beautiful of spring days for their wedding at the Elkridge Furnace Inn. While the outdoor festivities were cut short by an unexpected rainfall there was more than enough room inside to accommodate all of their family and friends. The beautiful peacock theme of the wedding reflected in the men’s pocket squares, the ladies bouquets, and the center floral arrangements.
