Winter Grand Ballroom Wedding at The Ryland Inn

Whitehouse Station, New Jersey


We could not have gotten a more beautiful winter day to celebrate Carolyn and Kevin at the Ryland Inn! March weddings can either be cold, rainy, and/or snowy — but thankfully, we had nothing but clear skies and a crisp (almost) spring breeze.

These two first met, as Carolyn tells it, as a “typical modern day love story, aka, we met on a dating app! We talked for quite a while before finally getting a first date locked in (mainly because Kevin was so shy), but in hindsight we got to know each other really well before actually meeting which helped to make us both more comfortable. That theme has definitely carried out throughout our entire relationship — we like to enjoy and soak in every stage and milestone, and this engagement has been no exception!”

When Kevin popped the question, he totally took Carolyn by surprise! “I thought I was going to meet my sister and her kids for a day at the park (I wasn’t!) but instead got surprised with a sweet proposal just the two of us walking through the park.”

Although Carolyn and Kevin are both originally from New Jersey, last year they moved down to Annapolis together for Kevin’s job and are loving it so far. When they’re not binging one of their favorite TV shows on the couch, these two love going out to try new restaurants in the area. Carolyn is a huge foodie, and has been slowly turning Kevin into one too.

Coming back to New Jersey for their wedding day was the perfect way to celebrate their marriage and the union of their two families. From start to finish, these two had an absolutely incredible day, and I feel so lucky to have been a part of it. Congratulations sweet Carolyn and Kevin!
