Here's the thing about me. I live to be a wedding planner. There are very few things in the world that bring me as much joy as having a couple say "I Do" under my Birch Tree umbrella.  This particular couple took me beyond the typical wedding planner 'high' that overcomes me during a Houston wedding.


You see this bride and I go way back. Junior High to be exact. Amanda and I grew up together, especially during the 4 years on the Katy Bengal Brigade -- our high school dance team. My senior year, we were officers together and became extremely close. We were in the same Sadie Hawkins Dance group, and Amanda even visited me my Freshman year of college.

As we have all experienced in our early 20's, it's hard to stay in touch with your high school friends. We go to different colleges, meet new friends, and start building a life that is our own. Inevitably we try to avoid the alluded perception of who we are in high school.

Luckily for me, I have a calling. A calling that not everyone understands, but most people need at some point in their life. My calling is none other than being a wedding planner. A wedding planner in one of the largest wedding markets in the country. A wedding planner in my hometown of Katy, Texas.

Because of my calling, Amanda and I reconnected and have maintained a friendship over the last two years. While I am posting this real wedding later than I originally anticipated, I am having just as much fun reminiscing on this very special day as I had the while planning and coordinating with Amanda.

In honor of Baby Rose who is going to be born ANY DAY NOW, here is Ryan and Amanda Rose Real (Winter) Wedding.
