She Said Yes! - Sarah & Ryan

Sarah Keach & Ryan Baucom

Dec. 11, 2009

I am back in school pursuing a degree in interior design, and last fall was intense! Working, going to school and teaching yoga can be incredibly time-consuming and tiring.

After the end of my semester in school – and after Ryan finished his huge yearly project at work – we felt that a small break was really necessary for our sanity. We decided to take off of work on Friday, Dec. 11 and play “hooky.” I was able to sleep in, attend a morning yoga class (my favorite) and planned on going to lunch somewhere fun and dressing up.

Ryan somehow tricked me into going to Alexander Michael’s, our first date spot. We went back to the house after lunch to curl up and watch a movie – it was a freezing day and I was looking forward to that.

But instead of it being a movie, it was a slideshow of all of these pictures of us. At the end of the DVD, he bent down on one knee, and after that, everything went a bit blurry. I just remember gasping for air and jumping up and down – a lot. He had some champagne from a Napa vineyard we had visited earlier that spring.

The cold, crisp December day and the fact that it was 2 p.m. and I was drinking champagne – it was all so fun and seasonally appropriate!

Sarah and Ryan were married on Oct. 30, 2010.
