No amount of rain could dampen the love and joy that filled Kara and Ryan’s Snohomish wedding at Thomas Family Farm. The images by Betty Globa Photography captured not only the darling details of the occasion, but the undeniable chemistry between the bride and groom. Once you read through their story, you’ll see why Kara and Ryan put the “sweet” in high school sweethearts.
It began with a question. Kara, who had barely spoken a word to the cute boy she believed to be “way too good for her,” had been somewhat forcefully convinced by her friends to ask Ryan to their tenth grade Tolo. Little did Kara know, Ryan had shared the same sentiment before she offered the invitation. “I thought she was way out of my league and that I didn’t have a chance!” The following night, Ryan asked Kara to sit next to her at their friend group’s outing to see Dear John, and feelings began to flourish.
“I know this seems crazy, but I was barely sixteen at the time and I knew then.” Kara shares. Six months into dating, the two of them agreed to share coffee and an important conversation. “I remember meeting at Starbucks and being so nervous to say out loud that I was in love with Kara,” says Ryan. “We both decided that our feelings were mutual and that we were in it for the long haul.” she adds.
