Kylene & Ryan in Thomasville, GA
Three and a half years after meeting at work, Ryan planned a low-key proposal to girlfriend Kylene.
The Bride Kylene Wayne, 25, wedding and portrait photography
The Groom Ryan Gay, 34, photography group manager
The Date February 9
The couple was in the process of moving into their new home when Ryan presented Kylene with the key to their house. Attached to it was a heart-shaped keychain. When she turned over the keychain it was engraved with the words, "Will you marry me?" She immediately accepted and they set about planning their dream wedding. Inspired by her years as a wedding photographer, Kylene knew that she wanted to do the planning herself and spent the next 16 months putting together every detail for their garden wedding.
