Jessica created the centerpieces herself. Each one was a metal pumpkin with an orange candle inside, surrounded by fall garland and a ribbon. The tables were set with brown placemats, the pumpkin centerpieces, and fall-hued leaves.

Jessica knew one thing for certain when it came to her flowers: they would be fall colors. Jessica carried a bouquet of mango calla lilies, red roses, small sunflowers, and orange gerbera daisies and added red berries for detail. The bouquet was wrapped with alternating mango and chocolate-brown ribbon.

Jessica & Ryan in Dahlonega, GA

Jessica Larkin and Ryan Bradley found love on the playground at an elementary school in Lilburn, where she was working at the time and he was observing for a week. Feeling bad for Ryan, who happened to be the only adult male on the playground at the time, Jessica struck up a conversation. A few days after his week was up, Ryan came back for a visit, and at the end of the day one of the teachers spotted a note on Jessica’s car with Ryan’s phone number and invitation for a date. The Bride Jessica Larkin, 30, fourth-grade teacher The Groom Ryan Bradley, 28, full-time student The Date October 28 Three years later, the couple was hiking on Stone Mountain when Ryan faked an injury to his ankle. As he was crouched down, he asked Jessica to pull something from his backpack. “I opened it, and inside was a little gray box,” Jessica says. That’s when Ryan turned to her (conveniently already down on one knee) and proposed.
