Once upon a time, Ryan and Brooke O'Connor began an amazing 28-day road trip with their two pit bulls.
The couple took the northern route to Washington and cruised along California's gorgeous coastline.
Little did Brooke know, one evening in San Diego would mark a new romantic chapter in her and Ryan's love story.
As the setting sun cascaded behind the cliffs to set the scene, another couple snapped a picture of Brooke and Ryan.
Ryan softly asked the couple to take more pictures, and then he got down on one knee.
Brooke says, “My first reaction was, 'No, get up! This isn't happening. Is this real? What's going on?!' Then of course I said yes.”
The happy couple tied the knot and had their reception at Talamore Country Club in Ambler, PA.
After trying on fifteen dresses, Brooke found her stunning Maggie Sottero gown.
The bridesmaids wore aqua blue dresses that perfectly complemented the bride's gown.
And here's a note to future brides and grooms to-be: The moment the groom laid eyes on his bride walking down the aisle, he wished they didn't have a 'First Look.'
The bride, however, was happy with their plan for a 'First Look' because they were able to capture beautiful pictures before sunset.
The ambiance and décor was exactly how Brooke pictured it to be. She cried when she saw the arrangements.
Her wedding planner, Brooke Harris, achieved the picturesque, outdoor perfection Brooke and Ryan dreamed of.
The bride's favorite moment of the day was when she opened her front door that morning.
She found hand-written, wooden signs displayed all over the yard with sayings from Ryan. Each had a different sweet thing he loves about Brooke.
The groom's favorite moment was a beautiful one.
The bride and groom wrote their vows.
...And they lived happily ever after.
