Kyna and Ryan met on an online dating site and started talking in July 2013. This was just in the nick of time as Kyna was currently starting to make preparations to move out of the area. They discovered their mutual love of history, movies, and similar food. Officially became boyfriend/girlfriend in September of that year.
Ryan often said that when one person is missing the whole world seems depopulated. Of all the people, in all the places in the whole world she was his missing person. She was his favorite. Kyna felt that he definitely had a way with words; he would always take the time to let her know how much he meant to him and how lucky he felt after dates and seeing each other. The fact that they share 3 out of 4 letters in their first names seemed like a good coincidence and seemed to solidify the relationship.
Ryan and Kyna were married on Saturday, September 16, 2017 for a brunch ceremony at the Lesner Inn in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Photography was done by Paul Harrison, makeup by Hello Beautiful, and a 3 tier buttercream cake by Shockley's Sweets Shoppe. The theme was seaside escape with lilac and gray being their color of choice. The weather was wonderful for mid- September in Hampton Roads at the height of a busy hurricane season. The mood was relaxed and casual. Guests had a good time mingling among each other while a harp was played by Mrs. Diana Elliott. The lovely couple have settled in Roanoke, Virginia. Ryan is currently working in residential and commercial property management and contracting as a small business owner. Kyna is Registered Nurse working in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at a local hospital.
