Aria // Kaylee & Ryan

We can't believe it's already been four years since Kaylee + Ryan's gorgeous wedding! We're reposting their wedding blog in honor of their anniversary and we've included new details from today's reposted Minneapolis St. Paul Weddings magazine blog!

Kaylee and Ryan began their story at Cretin-Derham Hall through their shared love for hockey. As Kaylee told MInneapolis St. Paul Weddings magazine, "We'd always see each other around the rink, and we ended up hanging out and skating with each other outside of the rink too."

After high school their hockey careers lead them into a long-distance relationship, with Ryan playing Division 1 hockey at University of Wisconsin-Madison and Kaylee playing at Bemidji State University {later transferring to University of St. Thomas}. In 2010, hockey took Ryan to New York after signing to play with the New York Rangers, but two years later Kaylee joined him there.

Kaylee and Ryan knew their dream wedding would hold true to their Minnesota roots and include Irish and Urban New York touches. Their ceremony was held at St. Kate's and they continued the celebration at Aria with an Irish whiskey bar, a live band + DJ, and late-night snacks from Davanni's. They wanted their big day to be relaxed, laid-back and fun! Their reception displayed a gorgeous natural palette that played off silver and gold details. See the images from their gorgeous rustic-meets-glam wedding!
