Sharni and Ryan's wedding day couldn't have been more dreamy. Sharni's sophisticated, smart and impeccable style, was perfectly reflected in her Pronovias San Patrick wedding gown, heels, her mix of vintage jewelry from her late grandmother and contemporary bracelets. The professional makeup artistry of Aimee J' Adore and hair stylizing of Melissa Gradin highlighted Sharni's curls and blue eyes. The owners and wedding coordinators of your perfect bridesmaid, Kimberly Morrill and Melanie Pedersen continued the modern, chic theme and transformed every last detail of the loft-like space in the Urban Studio. From the soft floral color palette to the shimmering candle vases, the decor couldn't have been more whimsical. What best summed up Sharni and Ryan's relationship are was the song that Sharni's cousin and mom wrote to tell their beautiful story. Sung to the tune of "Hallelujah," this was a surprise to both Sharni and Ryan and everyone was in tears. Sharni & Ryan, Your day was, as you said Sharni, beyond expectation--with emotional high points peppered throughout the day, Love you guys! Enjoy! xoxo, Stacey
