In June of 2017, Bryan was a recent transplant to Texas and found himself admiring a beautiful Texas native named Mysha. Just a week prior, they were two strangers living in different states, but fate had brought them together. After a message on match.com, Mysha and Bryan started getting to know each other and quickly realized how much they had in common. They went on their first date and it quickly affirmed to Bryan that everything really IS better in Texas!
As Mysha and Bryan spent time together over the following months, their bond continued to get stronger. They decided to tough out Hurricane Harvey together and found it hard to spend time apart after that week. They had become inseparable and started doing everything together. Such as exploring new restaurants, going to sporting events, and even taking road trips.
In July 2018, they took their first vacation together. They flew to Orlando before they went on their first cruise. While in Orlando they spent the day at Universal Studios. Unfortunately, weather was not on their side and they quickly learned that there was nowhere to avoid the rain. Except in the caricature drawing tent! It was the perfect solution to a rainy situation. They kept the drawing as a memento of their first vacation and sailed off to the Bahamas.
Over the next year they continued to build new memories and enjoy each other’s company. Bryan was finishing graduate school and in April 2019 they flew to Malibu to attend his graduation. In the weeks leading up to the trip, Bryan suggested that they get another caricature drawing while in California to continue their new tradition. After the graduation ceremony they drove to the Santa Monica Pier to get their newest drawing. What Mysha didn’t know was that Bryan had hired a caricature artist to draw their picture in advance. What she thought would be a drawing of them on the pier, was actually a picture of Bryan on one knee proposing to her. After much shock and many tears, she happily said yes!
The day of the wedding was absolutely perfect! Guest flew in from all over the country. The weather was beautiful and cool and even though it was super cloudy most of the day, the sun made an appearance just long enough at the end of the ceremony to get some absolutely gorgeous sunset shots. Mysha’s brother Jonathan officiated the ceremony and joked that “It’s not everyday you get to marry your sister.” lol.
Reception time was a blast! All the guest really enjoyed the caricature artist on site and it was always a packed dance floor. I really love that they played the Shoe Game and found a way to actually incorporate the guests into the game.
