Alexandra and Ryan got married at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in New Jersey. The venue actually has special significance to the couple as Alexandra’s father was a member there while she was growing up. This made Ryan’s surprise gift to her, a bracelet inscribed with the coordinates of their wedding, even more meaningful.
I knew that Ryan loved football. So, we made sure that he and the guys went out and threw one around for a while. It’s always cool to have people doing things they love during preparations, because they pretty much forget you’re there. Ryan and the guys even downed a few Shiner Bock beers to help get the day going.
It was a good thing they went out when they did, because not much later it started pouring rain. I always get nervous when the weather is bad because it can take a lot of the fun out of the day, but Alexandra and Ryan were total troopers letting us film them in the rain during their creative session.
Another bump in the road was when they had to decide whether to move the ceremony indoors because of the weather, but things turned out perfect as the skies cleared right before and they were able to go ahead with their ceremony outside as planned.
