Amanda + Ryan

They met years before their wedding day, but their story is pretty awesome; finding each other again after years apart,  a few bumps in the road, and then just knowing they were perfect for each other! Ryan told Amanda he loved her and the wheel was in motion for an amazing relationship to bloom!

We just had the best time working with these guys and we were so thrilled that they wanted to share with the world what they loved about us! We are excited to share a glimpse of the fun we had with these two!

Life Begins at the Studio D2D VIP Openhouse 

Amanda and Ryan’s engagement actually didn’t happen until AFTER they attended our VIP Openhouse and put their deposit down on the Loft Venue! Let’s just say, it warms our hearts that they had already researched us, and loved us, THAT much! They left us that night for a Harry Potter event, and later, Ryan popped the question (officially)! They said that they knew D2D was where they wanted to be, and they didn’t want to miss out on having their wedding here, with us!

D2D Fulfilling their Dreams!

When we sat down to chat with Ryan and Amanda about what they loved about their experience working with us, they shared things that just made us so happy! They initially loved the flow of our venue, how guests do not have to leave, and can go from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception with no interruptions. Amanda mentions loving how beautiful our venue is, and they both agree that having the venue look amazing enough that you don’t need a ton of decor is fabulous!

They told us that once they found our Loft Venue, they never looked anywhere else! What a compliment! Meeting with Amanda, our Operations Manager/Event Coordinator, made them feel comfortable and secure in the knowledge that D2D was here to help them plan the best wedding possible!

The day of their wedding, we were on hand to help manage the flow of their event, keep things looking great, and take care of Amanda, Ryan, and their friends and family! We helped to take pressure off them, having multiple services from D2D, so that they had less to manage themselves. Our team thoroughly enjoyed their Harry Potter theme, their fun personalities, and the friendship that we were able to build with them!
