Over a year ago, I sat down with a newly engaged and incredibly excited couple and smiled with them as they showed me the scrapbook Ryne made and talked about their plans to marry the following year. That day simultaneously seems like eternity ago and just yesterday, and it's both surreal and wonderful to be able to say that they're married now!
