Mia and Ryan met while in was in China on business. They fell in love and eloped with a courthouse wedding in California where they now reside. Because they had an additional wedding in China and to honor both sides of the family, they planned a third wedding for his side of the family at the Vinoy in St. Petersburg, FL. By this wedding, Mia was pregnant, so the joke was that it was a shotgun wedding (note the cake topper) even though they were already married! They held a Jewish ceremony because both had been drawn to the ideology and practices of the faith and thus converted. I love the bottom of Mia’s shoes (signed with notes from Ryan and her bridesmaids) and the photos of her jumping on the bed before she put on her wedding dress!
