Ronald and Tori met through a mutual friend. “We hung out one night at a Friday’s restaurant and from there, our relationship developed at its own pace.”
The groom planned a perfect engagement surprise with friends and family. “ We arrived at the restaurant and in walks my best friend and her husband to tell me they were there for a sip & paint event. As soon as I walked in I noticed my mother and stepdad and said, ‘What are y’all doing here on date night?’ And in the midst of that comment, I almost walked over Ronald who was already on one knee with a ring box open.”
140 guests were in attendance for their May nuptials at Ceresville Mansion, including a 20 person bridal party. “Ron’s father is a pastor, so it was only right that he would be our officiant. It was intimate and very personal, and afterward, we jumped the broom.”
The couple chose a “vintage chic” theme for their wedding, which included a color palette of blush pink, gold and navy.
Ron is a Multimedia Specialist and Tori is a HR Generalist. They currently reside in Owings Mills, Maryland.
