I’ve been looking forward to Blair and Ryan’s wedding for a while now, and for good reason! Blair and I have been friends since we were in middle school, which I can’t even believe was 10 YEARS ago! I remember sitting on the floor of their lake house with Blair filming our AP government project, laughing our way through calculus (because how else would you get through it?), and going to junior prom together. To watch Blair marry the PERFECT match for her was such a blessing. The fact that I got to photograph it? Totally priceless.
Blair and Ryan met in high school through their mutual friends, most of which make up their bridal party! Ryan was two years older than Blair, so his first summer home from Radford University, she was wrapping up her junior year. That summer, they both really hit it off! After Ryan took Blair on their first date, they were inseparable. They loved getting to know each other and didn’t want that summer to end. Eventually, the summer nights faded and fall creeped in. Ryan returned to Radford and Blair began her senior year of high school. After these two made it through a year of long distance, they knew that it was pretty serious.
After Blair visited Ryan at college during their year of long distance, she fell in love with the campus and decided to attend Radford the following fall. They were able to spend two years together at their home away from home until their roles reversed. Ryan graduated from college and moved back to Lynchburg while Blair finished up nursing school. After 5 and a half years of experiencing high school, long-distance, college, nursing school, and their very first jobs together, these two finally made it official as Mr. and Mrs. Kerr!
Blair and Ryan, you two are such a special couple! The love you two share is so apparent to everyone around you! You two have showed such an unwavering commitment to each other, your families, and your friends. I know that your marriage is going to be so incredibly blessed and so much fun! Thank you for letting me play a part in your gorgeous, lakeside wedding! It was such a joy to be a part of and represented you two, your life together, and your love so well!! CONGRATULATIONS, Mr. and Mrs. Kerr!!
